Hi, my name is Luke Fesperman, an anesthesiologist and its my first day on the job.
I am telling the patients what to expect during the surgery. I will also need to read medical charts to know what medicine(s) the patient is allergic to. Sometimes I will have to take classes to update my skills.
To work as an anesthesiologist you need to, have a high school diploma, have a bachelors degree, graduate from medical school, complete an internship, complete a residency program in anesthesiology, and pass additional exams to be board certified
Anesthesiologists get paid about $208,000 a year and $100 a hour.
Important things to know are that if the patients are given too much medicine, he/she will die. Another fact is that the anesthesiologists get paid more than the surgeons!
If I give a patient too little medicine they will wake up during surgery and freak out. That is why I have to be extra careful when measuring the medicine. Thank you for tuning in!
