Anesthesiologist Elise Suckling, Period 5

In a nutshell an anesthesiologist is a physician who gives anesthetics to people before, during, or after their surgery. Other duties include...

  • Keep track and write down how much anesthetic was adimedistered at what time
  • Examine patients and use their medical history to determine the risks of surgery
  • Decide if the patient is stable enough to be sent to another room after surgery
  • Position the patient on the surgical table to provide maximum amount of comfort during the surgery

The education required to be anesthesiologist is a M.D.. It could take upwards of 12 years to become an anesthesiologist .

As an anesthesiologist one could make upwards of $187,200 ($90.00+ hourly). The lowest an anesthesiologist can make is $142,590.

The outlook for an anesthesiologist is actually very good and is increasing about 14% (which is higher than average).

After doing research I still want to consider this as a career option because it seems interesting and challenging.
