Welcoming Message from the HOD

The Department of Anaesthesia Ahmadu Bello University Zaria (ABU) came into existence in 1968. It was set up to provide anaesthetic services to all the surgically related departments of Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital Zaria (ABUTH) and teach clinical undergraduate medical students of ABU. The Department has seen marked growth and change since its inception. Making the patient insensitive to pain while monitoring and maintaining vital organ function during surgical procedures are the main professional duty of the anaesthetist. In the modern anaesthetic practice the role of the anaesthetist is not limited to the operating room alone but also provides professional services in the intensive care unit ( ICU), the labour/delivery suite, radiology/radiotherapy unit, accident and emergency and psychiatric unit among others. The anaesthetist also plays a prominent role in acute and chronic pain management, teaching of undergraduate medical students/postgraduate physicians and the conduct of clinical research.
