The American Society of Anesthesia Technologists and Technicians (ASATT) is an international society accountable for maintaining and raising allied health professional standards for anesthesia technology education, patient care and professional competence for anesthesia technologists and technicians. ASATT’s organizational mission is to positively affect healthcare and educational standards for the field of anesthesia technology, and as a result, raise the quality of patient care by providing a safe and positive anesthetic environment.

What do we do?

As a growing allied health profession, the Anesthesia Technology profession specifically focuses on fundamental and advanced clinical procedures, which assist the anesthesia provider in the safe and efficient care of patients receiving anesthesia. Working under the direction of the anesthesia provider, anesthesia technologists and technicians are vital members of the anesthesia care team. They are proficient in the acquisition, preparation, and application of various types of equipment required for the delivery of anesthesia care. Technologists and technicians are trained to anticipate the needs of the patient and the provider, according to the surgical requirements, procedure or circumstance.

Who benefits?

ASATT is recognized as the organization responsible for maintaining and raising standards for technologist education, patient care and high level competence for both technologists and technicians. To this end, the society has established and administers its nationally-recognized certification program and the ASATT National Certification Examination. Designed to advance a national standard of excellence in requisite knowledge in the field of anesthesia technology, qualified allied health personnel, anesthesiology providers, and most importantly, patients, all benefit from ASATT.
