Dr. Matt Malkin answered
15 years experience Anesthesiology
Complex: Anesthesiologist is a doctor who did medical school then residency in anesthesia. Crna is a nurse, experienced in ICU care or similar, who attends an anesthesia training program. In most of the country crna practices under supervision of anesthesiologist, though in some states they can be independent.
