A term not recognized or used by the medical community because it misrepresents work done by advance practice nurses. More appropriately called Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs), they work under the guidance of a physician who is residency trained and possesses a medical degree - either an MD or DO. Anesthesiologists are physicians, medical doctors who have finished medical school and a rigorous residency training program to provide safe anesthesia care to patients. Nurses may also provide anesthesia, and those nurses have been known for decades as "nurse anesthetists". Recently, the nurse anesthetists have decided to call themselves nurse anesthesiologists in order to mislead and inflate a sense of self worth. The term is not recognized by the American Medical Association or American Osteopathic Association.
