How We Can Help
Anesthesia in the Operating Room Treatment Information
Surgeons use operating rooms, but efficient care and maintenance of the operating room is part of the anesthesiologist’s role. We are in the operating room every day and are always aware of conditions and supply levels. We are responsible for operating room staff and for maintaining the operating room in constant readiness. Anesthesiologists have intimate knowledge of surgeons’ needs and provide an optimal environment for surgeons to work in.
Anesthesiologists may also serve as administrators of surgical services within the hospital. Our physicians strive to follow evidence based quality measures to improve patient safety and operating room efficiency. Anesthesiologists can play a vital role in increasing efficiency and safety in the operating room by:
- Controlling supplies
- Improving sterilization processes
- Managing surgical staff
- Reducing cost
- Increasing access to the operating rooms
