Department of Anesthesiology
Anesthesiology is a term used to describe the medical speciality concerned with the study of anesthesia or anesthetics. Anesthesia by definition is the loss of sensation with or without the loss of consciousness. The American Society of Anesthesiologists define anesthesiology as “the practice of medicine dedicated to the relief of pain and total care of the surgical patient before, during and after surgery.”
Terminology varies between countries. In North America, the specialty is called anesthesiology, and can be administered by a medical doctor, a certified registered nurse anesthetist (an advanced practice nurse), or an anesthesiologist assistant (a non-physician provider who practices anesthesia under the direction of an anesthesiologist. By contrast, in the United Kingdom and other countries following the British tradition, both the medical specialty and the treatment delivered are referred to as anaesthesia or anaesthetics, and the physician who performs them is termed an anaesthetist. Though a general term, the word anesthetist can be used for any practitioner providing anesthesia services, but colloquially in North America it generally indicates a certified registered nurse anesthetist, whereas the term “anesthesiologist” usually refers to a medical doctor.
