Job Description for Physician / Doctor, Anesthetist

An anesthetist is a physician who plays a crucial role in patient care and surgery. They work as part of the surgical team to ensure that proper levels of general or local anesthetic are properly delivered, as well as monitor the effects of the anesthetic on the patient throughout the procedure. While in many common surgical situations, a trained nurse anesthetist is utilized in a similar role, doctors trained in the specialty are generally sought for more complex and delicate operations, particularly those involving the central nervous system and other vital organs.
