Starting off, an anesthesia tech is one who assists the dept. as a whole, often stocking supplies, readying equipment, cleaning equipment, etc. for the docs, crnas, and aas.

Anesthesiology assistants are care providers equal to crnas in their scope of practice. They intubate, anesthetize, and monitor the patient.

The pay differences of the two is large.
AAs start around $150k
Techs around $25-30k

Granted, AA's have a masters degree and techs usually get on the job training after high school.
