Job Description for Nurse Anesthetist
A nurse anesthetist has many different responsibilities in a medical setting, but their main duty is to help prepare and administer anesthetics to patients for surgery and other procedures. They are also responsible for choosing what anesthetic agents will be used on the patients based on physical and psychological factors, monitor patients in the operating room to maintain the proper level of anesthetics and prevent injuries, and help train and assist students to ensure they are properly trained. This is generally a full-time position that takes place in a health care facility such as a hospital or surgery center. Exposure to bodily fluids and communicable diseases may occur in this environment, although sanitary and safety procedures can help mitigate exposure.
