Anesthesia Technician/Technologist was first developed in hospitals as the complexity of anesthesia increased and the anesthesia care team required more assistance in and out of the operating room. Responsibilities include maintain anesthesia machine and equipment, assist with vascular access and regional anesthesia procedures, assist with difficult airways, troubleshoot anesthesia equipment, assist with resuscitations and other operating room emergencies and running point-of-care lab tests.

There are more than 8,773 anesthesia techs currently employed in the United States. Employment projected to grow 11% from 2020 to 2030, much faster than the average across all occupations.
