The work of an anesthesiologist is fulfilling with many benefits. A person would desire to become an anesthesiologist because there is a high standard of excellence due to a low percentage of doctors in this special field, not to mention the high salary. This occupation benefits the doctor through
However, I was uncertain of which career path I wished to pursue. I was given the privilege to shadow various healthcare physicians around the area, which could help determine which field of medicine was for me. Of the specialties I had observed, I found that anesthesiology was the most intriguing and I was immediately attracted to it. In order to acquire more information about the speciality, I applied to volunteer at East Georgia Regional Medical Center in the anesthesia department. I began assisting the anesthesia technician with her daily responsibilities. She eventually introduced me to many anesthetists there. After shadowing many anesthetists, I quickly learned that much of the patient interaction was with the anesthesiologist assistant or the certified registered nurse anesthetist rather than the anesthesiologist. I was thrilled to see the anesthetist comfort the patient as well as his family before the surgery. I, then, realized that I did not want to become a physician but rather an anesthesiologist assistant because I wanted to provide that administrative and comforting experience for the patients and their loved
The medical field is a career path that brings about many options and opportunities of great value. The noble idea of being a doctor tends to cloud the diligent studying and precise training that is actually required for this career. I have wanted to become a doctor since a very young age, and now that the opportunity is here for the taking, I have fully researched what it takes to succeed in this profession and various specialties of the practice. The road to a medical degree is one filled with thousands of notes, years of schooling, and many stressful nights, but the reward is one incomparable to any other. Saving people’s lives on a day-to-day basis has been one of my dreams for as long as I can remember, so the rigorous curriculum
The journey to embrace the speciality of anesthesiology has been ecstatic and full of fond memories. It was not until the end of my internship that I finally developed a passion in anesthesiology and the field of critical care. I soon realized that with my zeal for clinical anatomy, command over concepts of physiology, dexterity in medical procedures and empathetic connection to my patients, this speciality would be an ideal match. In my opinion, anesthesiology demands a physicians ability to consolidate the core principles of clinical medicine with the knowledge of basic science principles delicately balanced with high standards of ethical code and conduct. I am confident that with my depth of knowledge, passion for clinical research as well
Introduction In the last five years, Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) pathways for colorectal resection have been thrust into spotlight with evidence of expedited recovery time and improved postoperative outcomes1–5. However, there exists little uniformity in the recommendations and results of published ERAS pathways, and there is some evidence suggesting that the wrong cocktail of bundle elements can increase Surgical Site Infection (SSI) rates6. This inconsistency can be attributed to a lack of consensus on the efficacy of some common bundle elements, such as preoperative antibacterial showering, maintenance of normothermia, and high intraoperative Fraction of Inspired Oxygen (Fi02) 7–15. Such dissonance in studied ERAS efforts
I am choosing a career where I literally have a person’s life in my hands. Asahq states that an Anesthesiologist is a doctor that is primarily responsible for the safety of patients before, during, and after surgery. They place patients in a state of controlled unconsciousness and give sedation to relieve pain or anxiety. I always wanted to work in the medical field, and keeping people out of pain is something I want to do.
Over the years, brain surgery has evolved substantially. Looking into multiple types of surgery, surgery is able to be quite unusual. Humans will cut into each other a lot of times in order to get rid of deadly disease and even just to remove excess body fat. The reality that
Objective #3. Analyze the collected data to determine the strengths and weakness is the final goal. It appears the pre-anesthesia screener corrects most of the system failures prior to the patient’s scheduled surgery. The pre-anesthesia screener spoke of most of the day dedicated to problem solving and reiterating information with the patient and caregivers prior to surgery. If the pre-operative instructions and education were more transparent, then it may lessen the amount of phone calls and
However, I was ambiguous concerning which career path I wished to pursue. I was given the privilege to shadow various health care physicians around the area, which could potentially help determine which field of medicine was for me. Of the specialties I had observed, I found that anesthesiology was the utmost intriguing and I was immediately attracted to it. In order to acquire additional information relevant to the specialty, I applied to volunteer at East Georgia Regional Medical Center in the anesthesia department. Due to my father’s and grandmother’s health concerns during this time, I was still able to acquire exposure to certain other specialties such as family medicine and cardiology. When I began volunteering in the anesthesia department, I was immediately assisting the anesthesia technician with her daily responsibilities. She eventually introduced me to several anesthetists there. After shadowing the anesthetists, I quickly learned that a considerable amount of the patient interaction was with the anesthesiologist assistant or the certified registered nurse anesthetist rather than the anesthesiologist. I was filled with bliss when I watched the anesthetist comfort the patient along with his or her family before the surgery. After that observation, I realized that I no longer desired to become a physician but rather an

As long as I can remember, I have had a natural curiosity for why things work the way they do. Over the years this curiosity has led to my desire at age 5 to “become a scientist and move to Africa,” my obsession with the engineering of aircraft carriers and
The first thing to do before an awake brain surgery starts - is to find out if you need one or not. That’s where an MRI comes in, they’ll put you through it and the machine scans your body to help the surgeons know if your situation is serious enough for an awake surgery. If you do need an awake surgery - they’ll schedule you first of course - but even after that in the pre-op room a speech specialist will talk to the patient or have you identify an image. Once you get into the surgery room, they will sedate you and numb your scalp, then they’ll let you awake and start the surgery. During the surgery - the surgeon will talk to you or ask you simple questions (e.g. What’s your name?). Soon, after the surgery, they’ll sedate you again. Once you

16th October - Morton made discovery of a lifetime with the first public demo of ether advent of anesthesia a new branch in the history of medicine. Why choose anesthesiology? how's life of an anesthesiologist what do we do? Is it just a matter of needles syringe and drugs or Is it just to make a patient fall asleep?
