In the United States most of whom administer anesthetics to patients are specialized nurses who take graduate level courses and take a certification exam to be what is called a Certified Registered Nurse in Anesthetist or CRNA
The drug being administered is made by an anesthesiologist and then given to the patient under going surgery by a CRNA under the supervision of a physician
In some states a physician is not required to be present when the drug is being administered
In the preoperative assessment, or a patient assessment prior to surgery, you must identify the anesthetic consideration for the patient
Identifying the anesthetic consideration means identifyinganything a patient may be allergic to or may be harmful to them as well identifying the correct amount of anesthesia that should be administered to the patient
Before the anesthesia is induced an electrocardiograph (a machine that produces a graphical recording of the events in a heart beat from the beginning of a beat to the start of the next) must be attached along with a blood pressure cuff
After the IV has been givenvarious other monitors must be attached to the patient that monitor the body to help ensure everything is going according to plan
