An anesthesiologist is a doctor who gives a patient medication so they do not feel pain when they are undergoing surgery
Anesthesiology is the practice of medicine dedicated to:
- The comprehensive care of patients before, during, and after surgery and childbirth;
- Critical care medicine, and;
- The treatment of acute and chronic pain.
Several types of anesthesia are available, including general anesthesia, sedation anesthesia, and regional anesthesia. The type of anesthesia that is chosen is based on the patient’s medical history, the planned operation or procedure, and the patient’s preferences.
