Transcript of Anesthesiology

By Jessica Stair and
Bailey Pifer Anesthesiologist Career Ladder History Current methods and Techniques Most Anesthetics are given through an IV. Although it is also common for a patient to inhale the anesthetics. The patient is monitored very closely by the anesthesiologist throughout the surgery, the patients anesthetics are adjusted throughout the surgery and in the recovery process. Typical Day According to William Baker, who has been an anesthesiologist for 18 years in Alabama, he gets into work at 6:00 am to start review cases for the surgeries for that day. He usually gets out of the OR by 3:00, but then he still has to prep the next day case files. He usually arrives home before 5 but he is often on call.
He has 6 vacation weeks a year and when he had his private practice he worked around 80 hours a week but in the hospitals it is often around 45 hours. He can work any day of the week and at any hour. Training/ Education Recommended High School Courses
Math Ethical issues Anesthesiologist are under constant pressure to make life or death calls. But they also must deal with doing what is best for the patient. When in college Anesthesiologist must take a class on ethics to learn how to deal with some of the situations that come their way. It is their job to make their best judgement call but sometimes it is not so clear on what the right call is. Benefits/ Earnings The average salary for an anesthesiologist is $321,686 a year.

Kapur, M.D, anesthesiology is heading in the direction of becoming more technological. New machines for advanced noninvasive cardiovascular testing, which allows them to assess if the patient is at a risk for anesthetics. Computer controlled infusion, and noninvasive monitoring techniques. http://www.csahq.org/pdf/bulletin/future_57_3.pdf http://www.netwellness.org/healthtopics/anesthesiology/anesthesiamethods.cfm http://studentdoctor.net/2007/08/20-questions-with-dr-william-baker-anesthesiologist/ It's not so much physical demand as it is emotional.
