The main task of this paramedical field of education is training students in providing patients in need of surgery with general anesthesia, which is, essentially, a medically induced coma, rather than sleep. Students learn to apply drugs to render a patient unresponsive and unconscious. Anesthetic drugs are normally administered intravenously (IV) or inhaled. Under general anesthesia, the patient is unable to feel pain and may also have amnesia. Therefore, the act of surgery would be done easier and safer. Students also learn how to monitor a patient's vital signs and his rate of breathing during the procedure.

So, acquiring knowledge to identify and administer drugs used for anesthetic purposes of different people become quite an important task. This procedure is usually done by an anesthesiologist, a nurse anesthetist, and a specially trained doctor, while

Students of this discipline are exposed to three main types of anesthesia including:

Local - numbs on a small area of the body in which the patient stays awake and alert. 

Regional – usually blocks pain in an organ of the body, such an arm or leg. A common type is epidural anesthesia is used during childbirth

General - makes the patient unconscious. In this case, the patient does not feel any pain, and you do not remember the procedure afterwards.
