meet our team
The Dayton Children’s pediatric anesthesiology team includes board certified pediatric anesthesiologists and certified registered nurse anesthetists.
what is a pediatric anesthesiologist?
Pediatric anesthesiologists are physicians who provide general anesthesia, sedation and post-surgery pain relief for infants, children and adolescents who are having surgery. They also offer sedation and pain relief for children who are undergoing certain diagnostic tests or minor procedures. These highly trained specialists know how to examine and treat children in a way that helps them relax and be cooperative. They use equipment and facilities specifically designed for children.
In order to become a pediatric anesthesiologist, a physician must complete a four-year anesthesiology residency program and then receive additional training to subspecialize in anesthesia care for infants, children and adolescents. These physicians also must earn certification from the American Board of Anesthesiologists.
what is a certified registered nurse anesthetist?
A certified registered nurse anesthetist is an anesthesia professional who provides anesthesia in collaboration with surgeons, anesthesiologists, and other qualified healthcare professionals. At Dayton Children’s, these highly trained advanced practice nurses specialize in pediatric anesthesiology.
