Scope of Practice for Anesthesia Technology Professionals

NEWLY REVISED as of September 2023!

Scope of practice is the legally authorized parameter regarding the clinical functions of assessment, intervention and level of care that a healthcare practitioner can provide to a patient. While an organization may limit or narrow the scope of practice of an individual through a job description and/or policy and procedure, an organization may not allow an employee to act outside his or her legal scope of practice.

ASATT has a clearly defined scope of practice for certified technologists, which also addresses technicians in the field. To review the ASATT scope of practice click the link below.
