An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine.
The source further defines an anesthesiologist in the USA as a physician who completes an accredited residency program in anesthesiology, usually four years following medical school.
Anesthesiologists may administer anesthesia directly or as part of an anesthesia team consisting of nurse anesthetists or anesthesiologist assistants.
Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients when doing surgical procedures. Anesthesiologists are responsible for ensuring the delivery of anesthesia safely to patients in virtually all health care settings, including all major medical and tertiary care facilities. This includes a preoperative evaluation, consultation with the surgical team, creating a plan for the anesthesia tailored to each individual patient, airway management, intraoperative life support and provision of pain control, intraoperative diagnostic stabilization, and proper post-operative management of patients. Preparation of patients for emergency surgery are mandatory, essential, and critical skills that anesthesiologists have been trained to employ. Because anesthesiologists are physicians, in contrast to other anesthesia providers, they are able to utilize their extensive knowledge of human physiology and diseases to guide their decision making.
