Who are Anesthesiologist Assistant's?
An anesthesiologist assistant is a physician assistant specialist trained to administer anesthesia. In the United States, an anesthesiologist assistant must complete two and a half years of training in a CAAHEP accredited anesthesiologist assistant program after obtaining a baccalaureate degree and required medical prerequisites.
In the operating room, an anesthesiologist assistant, who is supervised by an anesthesiologist, practices with a great deal of autonomy administering anesthetic drugs and recognizing and treating surgical complications, such as sudden MI and Hypotensive crisis. The anesthesiologist assistant is trained to assess potential complications prior to surgery by obtaining a thorough physical assessment and history. After surgery, the anesthesiologist assistant monitors the patient until vital signs are stable and he or she gains consciousness.
