Anesthesiology and intensive care

Anesthesiology is the science of anesthesia and the use of anesthetics. In Sweden, anesthesiology is a medical specialty encompassing perioperative care, anesthetics, intensive care and pain medicine.

Research in anesthesiology and intensive care at the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology is carried out in connection with the Department of Anesthesiology, Surgical Services and Intensive Care Medicine (ANOPIVA) at Karolinska University Hospital, Solna, and with the Department of Pediatric Anesthesiology and Intensive Care at Astrid Lindgren Children's Hospital. The research is focused on anesthesiological mechanisms, breathing regulation, intensive care and inflammatory conditions.

Our research projects are supported by an experimental research unit, a clinical research unit, and a production-and-outcome unit currently under construction. This translational environment fosters strong research clusters around key areas of anesthesiology, intensive care and pain management. Experimental anesthesiology and intensive care form an important part of the translational research conducted at our home department.

We teach at both the undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate level. Our teaching is characterized by a combination of basic science and its clinical application, especially in highly specialized perioperative care, intensive care medicine, and pain. We have a wide range of courses on the undergraduate and postgraduate level and carry a key role in the education of nurses and physicians in anesthesiology, surgery and intensive care.
