Diploma in Anesthesia Technology

Diploma in Anaesthesia Technology in CMC Vellore’s Chittoor campus

Recent advances in critical care medicine have enabled major surgeries to be performed on very sick patients. These surgeries require skilled anaesthesia and postoperative care. It has now been recognized that anaesthesiologists require trained help to handle these procedures. In recognition of this, the Indian Society of Anaesthetists plan to implement "minimum standards for patient care," which makes it mandatory for an anaesthetist to have a skilled assistant for at least the start and end of every anaesthetic procedure. These skilled assistants need to be trained.

The course will cover basic Anatomy, Physiology and Pharmacology especially with respect to air way management and relevant medication. An introduction to sterile techniques, management of emergency situations including cardiopulmonary resuscitation and understanding of equipment used in the operation room will be an essential part of the course. The Chittoor campus has state of the art operation theatres and senior consultants in charge.

All students will undergo one year compulsory internship.
