Your official job description is anesthesiologist. What are your responsibilities?
Many people know the term only in the context of anesthesia and ask: ‘“Are you even a doctor?” But in addition to anesthesia, I am responsible for intensive and emergency care, as well as pain management. My place of work is both in ambulances and hospitals. But the birth of my children led me to set new priorities. For example, as a mother, I no longer want to do night shifts. I only occasionally work as an emergency doctor now, as much as I really enjoy it.
Do you remember your first dispatch?
Yes, I was an intern at the time and accompanied a very experienced emergency doctor. We were called to an apartment at 8 AM. Inexperienced as I was, I automatically acted based on what I had learned in school: inspecting, shaking and talking to the patient. The emergency doctor just shook her head: “Girl, he is long gone!.”
