Anesthesiologists work in a variety of medical settings. They often work in high stress situations, where a great deal of concentration and alertness is necessary, such as in the operating theatre. They also work in many outpatient facilities, and they will often have to work with people who are recovering from an operation, or those who need pain management treatment. Additionally, they may work in the delivery room to administer pain relief treatments, such as epidurals. They usually work among other medical professionals to assist them and help to provide the patient with the pain relief treatment that is most suited to them and the best care possible.
