Anesthesia is a condition of controlled but brief loss of sensation or mindfulness that is instigated for clinical purposes. It might be incorporated as a few or the entire absence of pain (as alleviation from or counteraction of trauma), loss of motion (muscle unwinding), amnesia (loss of memory). Anesthesia sometimes can cause temporary or permanent loss of neurological, circulatory, or cardiovascular functions, which would there the subject must one that is studied extensively and researched in detail. Recent developments in this field involve the development of a protocol for, crisis management in malignant hyperthermia, a study on tracheal atresia syndrome, and a protocol for perinatal management associated with indications of oesophageal intubation for oxygenation and ventilation amongst other studies. The study of the changes, functions, and diseases related to infants, children, or adolescents is known as pediatric medicine. Pediatric patients absorb, distribute, metabolize and eliminate medicine differently. Due to this there also is a possibility intense research that is required in this field of medicine to be conducted. This is also the reason why there is an absolute necessity in studying and understanding the effects and conditions that are caused in these patients due to anesthesia. 
The major outcomes of this course are that a student will be imparted, thorough and comprehensive training, which would enable to be able to act as a faculty/consultant in this speciality, be able to carry out and conduct applied research in the field of pediatric anesthesia, be able set-up independent pediatric anesthesia departments for future purposes. The course does this by conducting an intensive study on the necessary topics. The student is taught topics such as conditions such as preterm labor, prematurity, neonate, Infant, child, etc. it enables the student to be able to understand the transition from fetal to neonatal circulation and the effect on vascular and cardiac structures (conversion from parallel to series circulation). It also teaches skills such as being able to administer anesthesia to all age groups and make a not on the volume of the change of distribution of the drugs, protein binding, metabolism, and excretion, etc. The course likewise anticipates that graduates should be fit for understanding pre-usable issues pertinent to the sedative consideration of youngsters, babies, and kids which incorporate conditions like coinciding morbidities, drugs, hypersensitive responses, work and conveyance history, maternal history, family ancestry, the typical pediatric actual test and the assessment of unusual discoveries. These skills and methodologies are imparted on a practical basis and the students are expected to work as a resident physician acting for assistive care given to the patient. 
The Doctor of Medicine - Pediatric Anesthesia is a course that can be practiced as a post-graduate degree, and the candidates are required to submit a minimum qualification of medical certification from a recognized state or central board of medicine. There are plenty of career options in this field of medicine. Graduates can take up work working opportunities as attending anesthesiologists in government or private healthcare centers and hospitals. They can also work as physicians who offer, post-operative care and can also explore the research options in this field of medicine which are plenty.
