Anesthesiologist

An anesthesiologist or anaesthetist is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine.

The title of the role varies between countries. In countries following the practice of North America, those specialising in the field are termed anesthesiologists, but in the United Kingdom and current or former member countries of the Commonwealth of Nations, such physicians use the title anaesthetist instead (in North America, "anesthetist" would refer to a non-physician who is involved in the provision of anesthesia).

Anesthesiologists used to have to manually pump the bag in order to assist the patient in breathing... How tiring!!
