Salary and Duties

Duties: Anesthesiologists are the physicians trained to administer and manage anesthesia given during a surgical procedure. They are also responsible for managing and treating changes in your critical life functions - breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure - as they are affected by the surgery being performed. Further, they immediately diagnose and treat any medical problems that might arise during and immediately after surgery.

Why Anesthesiologist?

I want to be an Anesthesiologist because they do not get close to a whole lot of blood. Also, you do not have to treat a lot of different emergencies like other doctors. As an Anesthesiologist, you will just perform the main duty of putting patients to sleep before surgery. An anesthesiologist makes a good amount of money as well, which is another reason I want to pursue this job. This job also helps out the patient because it brings little to no discomfort. Many colleges offer good programs to get started in this medical field.
