Nolan Bradshaw Stdev 139 Research Paper #2 11/1/2010 Anesthesiologist An anesthesiologist is known by many names, but it is basically a physician who is trained in peri-operative medicine, meaning an anesthesiologist is an all around Doctor providing medical care assistance to patients before, during and after surgical procedures. Anesthesiologists are mostly known for administering or overseeing the administration of anesthesia. Anesthesias are drugs that are administered to a patient for different medical purposes. There are three main types of anesthesia that can be administered during surgery, general, regional, and local. When administered general anesthesia it make the patient unconscious and “unable to feel pain or any sensation.” Some of the general anesthetics are gases or vapors that will be administered through a mask or even a breathing tube, compared to other liquid anesthetics that would be administered through a vein. Regional anesthesia “numbs an entire area of the body” that is required for the surgery. Local anesthesia is used “to numb a specific part of the body” like a leg, foot, arm or hand. This type of anesthesia is more specific if it’s just one region of the body that needs to be numbed. Regional and local anesthetics are administered by injections.
