Anesthesia Technology Program

The Oklahoma City Community College Anesthesia Technology Program prepares graduates for eligibility to sit for the American Society of Anesthesia Technologists and Technicians (ASATT) National Certification Examination.  As an integral member of the anesthesia care team, certified anesthesia technologists focus on fundamental and advanced clinical procedures that assist licensed anesthesia providers in the safe and efficient care of patients receiving anesthesia. Anesthesia Technologists are trained to anticipate the needs of the patient and the provider, as determined by the surgical requirements, procedure or circumstance.

Graduates of the Oklahoma City Community College Anesthesia Technology Program are prepared to work in a variety of clinical settings including hospital operating rooms, interventional and diagnostic radiology, labor and delivery suites, intensive care units, emergency rooms, outpatient procedure suites, and ambulatory surgery centers.

Examples of job responsibilities include preparation, maintenance, and troubleshooting of anesthesia machines and monitors, cleaning and sterilization of equipment and patient care areas, patient assessments, transport, and positioning, insertion of intravenous and other invasive lines, and airway management. 

Theory content, skills lab and clinical simulations occur on campus. Students rotate through area healthcare facilities gaining necessary clinical experience.
