An anesthesiologist or anesthetist is a physician who is trained in providing anesthesia and peri-operative medicine. The stream of study is called anaesthesiology. An anesthesiologist will monitor the anesthesia side effects when administered for a surgery.
Anaesthesiologists are important members of the surgery team in medical and surgical centers. Anesthetists are required before, during and after the surgery. They prescribe medicines for pain relief, relieve anxiety and provide sedation for intensive surgical procedures.
Anesthiologists provide medical care to individuals in a broad array of medical conditions which among others, include preoperative evaluation, creating anesthetic plans, surgical consultations and intra-operative life support. For patients undergoing surgery. anaesthetists perform airway management, intraoperative diagnostic stabilization and post-operative care. The transition of patients from surgery to normal patient wards requires the counseling and instructions of the anaesthesists.
Anesthetists work with other doctors in the provision of the services mentioned above. These are mostly surgeons of different specialties as both the surgeon and the anesthesiologist need to work together for the proper recovery of the patient. As such, it is important to pair the surgeons and the anaesthetists correctly.
