Anaesthetics & Intensive Care Medicine

Anaesthetics

Anaesthetists are generally understood as the doctors who “put you to sleep for surgery”. Certainly this is an important part of their work, but anaesthetists, as highly trained specialists, have a scope of practice which extends beyond anaesthesia for surgery to include pain management and intensive care. Anaesthetists have a medical background to deal with many emergency situations. In these situations they provide vital care of breathing, resuscitation of the heart and lungs and advanced life support.
