Introduction

´╗┐Dylan FergusonRough DraftMarch 24th 2010 Is there anyone you would trust your life with while you?re being worked on ?under the knife?? Anesthesiology is one of the most important and highest paid careers in the medical field, which is why it takes years of extensive training. Responsibility and great precision are two qualities you must have in order to do the job right and keep the patient alive. In order to become an anesthesiologist you must take, 4 years of undergraduate school, 4 years of medical school, and 3 to 8 years of internship and residency. You also must complete a few undergraduate classes such as, physics, biology, mathematics, English, and inorganic and organic chemistry. The minimum education requirement to enter medical school is 3 years of college, most applicants; however, have at least a bachelor's degree, and many have advanced degrees. The people of bls.gov stated that ?Acceptance to medical school is highly competitive.? Students spend most of the first 2 years of medical school in laboratories and classrooms, taking courses such as anatomy, biochemistry, physiology, pharmacology, psychology, microbiology, pathology, medical ethics, and laws governing medicine. They also learn to take medical histories, examine patients, and diagnose illnesses. ...read more.

Residents then spend about half the year at the Stanford University Packard Children's Hospital complex and the remainder between The Veterans Administration Palo Alto Health Care System and the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center. . (Webster, Marriam. ?Anesthesia?. Webster. New York City: Mcgraw Hill Company, 2005) When you get to through residency, then you take on the actual responsibilities of being an anesthesiologist. Anesthesiologists have control over the life of the person who is being operated on. ?In general, an anesthesiologist is a medical doctor who cares for a patient before, during and immediately following a surgical or medical procedure by administering appropriate anesthesia and monitoring the patient for reactions and complications, and to ensure comfort and manage pain,? says the Anesthesia Zone. They regulate blood pressure, heart rate, and every other thing while the person is under the knife. The name anesthesiologist comes from the drug anesthesia which puts the patient to sleep for the time of the surgery taking away all pain and making it easier to have a successful operation. .

Conclusion

. (Webster, Marriam. ?Anesthesia?. Webster. New York City: Mcgraw Hill Company, 2005) In 2008, physicians practicing primary care had total average annual salary of $186,044, and physicians practicing in medical specialties earned total average annual salary of $339,738, which makes their earnings among the highest of any occupation. . (Longnecker, David. Anesthesiology. New York City: Mcgraw Hill Company, 1976) Anesthesiologists are without a doubt one of if not the most important professionals of any occupation because they take the biggest risks and are the more depended on then any other medical professional because everyday thousands of people put the trust of their life in the hands of an anesthesiologist. Anesthesiologists don?t only have to be good at what they do but must be good at many other things too. They must be able to gain the patients trust and insure them that they are in good hands. It takes a lot of time, concentration, and dedication to become the highest paid and most respected professional in the medical field. They don?t just let anyone be one because they hold the life of many patients in their hands, and that?s why anesthesiologists are also the most trusted professions in the medical field. ...read more.
