Anesthesia for catheter ablation procedures.
Over the past decade, the role of the anesthesiologist has evolved continuously into a sine qua non component of the EP team, having intimate knowledge of the complex interventional procedures and the specific demands of the EP environment. With emphasis on coordination of care, resource optimization, and implementation of a climate of teamwork and collaboration, the anesthesiologist very likely will assume an even more enhanced role in the future. Future design of the EP suite ergonomics must take into account the needs of the anesthesia team to improve procedural workflow and maintain the focus on the patient.
