Veterans Administration Medical Center

The Atlanta VA Medical Center is a 405-bed multi-specialty facility, caring for adult patients. The surgical population is diverse, with more than 49% over the age of 60. This allows the Anesthesiology resident to concentrate on the opportunity to participate in the perioperative management of the multiple co-morbidities associated with elderly patients, who represent an increasing percentage of the general population. Skills required for operative anesthetic management of these challenging patients frequently include invasive hemodynamic monitoring, pharmacological support of physiologic parameters, fiberoptic airway management and combined general-regional anesthetic techniques. Selected cases require, for post-operative analgesia, epidural and peripheral nerve blocks. The case mixture includes cardiac, thoracic, vascular, orthopedic cases and major general surgery cases. The resident is also able to participate in the care of patients receiving electroconvulsive therapy, other non-surgical anesthetic care, and those patients needing emergent airway support in other areas of the Medical Center.
