Anesthesia Career Areas:


Anesthesiologists most often work in a hands-on environment with patients. Within that setting they may focus on general medicine and surgery, pulmonary care, emergency room rotations, osteopathic medicine, pediatric or geriatric patients. They may also work in the cancer ward or other specific departments.

In addition, anesthesiologists might work in a business, research, or educational setting. They may address social and political issues such as bioethics, right to die, and addiction to pain medication.

Anesthesiologist Assistant

Anesthesiologist Assistants (AAs) are highly skilled health professionals who work under the direction of licensed anesthesiologists to implement anesthesia care plans. Anesthesiologist Assistants work exclusively within the anesthesia care team environment as described by the American Society of Anesthesiologists. An Anesthesiologist Assistant may not practice outside the field of anesthesia or apart from the supervision of an anesthesiologist.

Anesthesia Technician

An Anesthesia Technician (AT) is not a doctor or a nurse. The role of the AT is to support the work done by the professional anesthesia personnel. ATs are responsible for managing the anesthesia equipment and for its proper maintenance.

Certified Anesthesia Technician

The Certified Anesthesia Technician (Cer.A.T.) is a technician who has successfully completed the examination requirements established by the ASATT. The Certified Anesthesia Technician is an allied healthcare professional who is an essential member of the anesthesia care team, as observed by the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA), the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA) and the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN). The Certified Anesthesia Technician performs duties under the supervision of the licensed anesthesia care providers.

Certified Anesthesia Technologist

A Certified Anesthesia Technologist (Cer.A.T.T.) is a technician who has successfully completed both the Certified Anesthesia Technician and Technologist Examinations per the requirements established by the ASATT. The Certified Anesthesia Technologist is distinguished from the Certified Anesthesia Technician by additional levels of training and experience.

The official recognition for Anesthesia Technologists is the American Society of Anesthesia Technologists and Technicians (ASATT) national certification. This certification is currently not required by any states, but some employers require it either prior to or within two years of hire.
