All You Need to Know for Study and Reference
21.1 MB PDF
The role of the anesthesia technician in the perioperative environment has been expanding to keep pace with the rapid innovations in anesthesiology and surgery. As the responsibilities and complexity of the job have increased, so has the visibility of the role of anesthesia technician within hospitals and other health care institutions. Much like other health care roles, the increased responsibilities and complexity of job requirements have put the role of anesthesia technician on the path of becoming a more widely recognized allied health profession. Associated with this is an increased requirement for education and training ranging from equipment maintenance to medication handling. More and more institutions are scrutinizing the education and training of anesthesia technicians, with some going so far as to require certification as a job requirement.
The goal of this text was to fill a critical gap in the material available to support the education and training of anesthesia technicians and technologists. Currently, there is no single text directed specifically at this group of allied health professionals. Community college course students or individuals studying for a certification exam must often utilize textbooks directed at anesthesiologists. Although the material is similar, the focus of these texts is not directed at an anesthesia technician audience. The Anesthesia Technician and Technologist’s Manual is specifically directed at this audience and their background education. Section I provides an overview of the profession, while Section II covers basic anatomy and physiology with an emphasis on highlighting the principles upon which anesthesia equipment or procedures are based. Section III covers the basic activities of anesthesia to give the technician a solid foundation for understanding the different aspects of performing an anesthetic including airway management, sedation, general anesthesia, regional anesthesia, fluid therapy, and patient positioning. Section IV is the bulk of the text and covers a wide variety of anesthesia equipment and procedures from anesthesia machines and vascular access, to neuromuscular monitoring and ventricular assist devices. This section places a heavy emphasis on anesthesia equipment setup, operation and maintenance— a priority for anesthesia technicians. This section will help anesthesia technicians understand why a procedure is performed, what equipment might be needed and why, as well as how to set up and troubleshoot the equipment. Section IV introduces the anesthesia technician to the operating room and hospital environment covering topics from fire safety to the special needs of performing anesthesia out of the operating room. The final section, Section V, covers several anesthesia emergencies with the goal of familiarizing the anesthesia technician with what is going on, what the priorities are during the crisis, and what equipment or other activities the anesthesia technician should be prepared for.
