Advances in administering anaesthesia have allowed an increasing number of procedures to be performed in an outpatient setting. With advancement in techniques, complex procedures are likely to be performed outside the hospital in outpatient surgery centres. However, Dr. Rowan Molnar continues to improve on his role and the role of many other prospective anaesthesiologists in the operating room. An anaesthetist plays a vital role right from surgical anaesthesia to critical care medicine and pain management. Dr. Rowan Molnar an anaesthetist who has extensive experience in anaesthesia at a tertiary referral hospital level, both in Australia and internationally, says care of surgical patients has undergone major changes over the years. This includes medical evaluation of a patient in the pre-operative stage, consultation with the surgical team, pain control in the intra-operative stage, and supervising care after surgery.
Anaesthesia for critically ill patients
Australian Anaesthetist Dr. Rowan Molnar who has extensive clinical specialisation in cardiac, orthopaedic, tumour, and plastic and reconstructive surgery, also has specific experience in anaesthesia for critically ill patients. Prior to surgery, he performs a focused history and physical examination, reviews test results and assesses the need for additional testing, as part of pre-operative evaluation. In the operating room, Dr. Rowan Molnar has decades of experience in the medical management and anaesthetic care of patients throughout the duration of the surgery. That includes closely monitoring the patient’s medical condition and responses to anaesthesia. Some of the main roles during surgery include continuous medical assessment of the patient and controlling the patient’s pain and level of consciousness to ensure safe and ideal conditions for surgery. While a patient may never realise the presence of an anaesthesiologist, these dedicated doctors are by every patient’s side, providing these critical functions at all times during a surgery.
