I was just curious how it feels liek to be a a practicing anesthesiologist after residency. Does most of your job at that point become so second-nature that going to work is almost just like driving a car? do you just know what to do all the time without really having to think long and hard about anything?

also, what if you do "bread and butter" anesthesiology for 30 years, and then choose to work somewhere else that has more risky cases. wouldnt you forget what to do if a severe and unique problem happens during surgery that you haven't seen since training 30 years ago? or do you constantly read over old books to make sure you remember what to do when anything goes wrong, even for the most unique and least probable emergencies?
