The department of Anaesthesiology renders clinical Anaesthesia services to all surgical specialties at AIIMS Patna. Anaesthesiologists provide services in the intensive care units, the emergency room, trauma center, post-operative wards, and outpatient anaesthesia.

The Anaesthesiology Department is being strengthened and has been steadily expanding its services by the arrival of new faculty members. The department provided operative services in three different buildings before August 2019. As of 13th August, regular operative services began in the 5th and 6th floors of IPD building, at the designated modular OT complex. The Department strengthened palliative care services and became one of the few centers in India to get accreditation to hold the ‘Indian Association of Palliative Care’ certificate course. Candidates passing out of this course could be licensed to hold and prescribe morphine. The department also started providing remote Anaesthesia at various locations, such as radiotherapy, psychiatry, and endoscopy suites. Offering acute pain management and labor analgesia has further strengthened our commitment to providing postoperative care that ensures patients have a comfortable stay after surgery.

Clinical care, medical education, and research are equally important to the department of Anesthesiology. We have expanded our strength and responsibility with the addition of 10 post-graduate students from different regions of this country in the year 2019-2020. Apart from their outstanding clinical work, the faculties in the department have excelled in Research by publishing and presenting papers both in India and abroad.
