Clinical Anesthesia

Director : Tseng, Chia-Chih, MD


Clinical anesthesia is often very challenging and sometimes stressful.  Under anesthesia, the patients’ lives are in the hands of anesthesiologists.  Therefore even the slightest neglect or error can lead to serious complications.  Under all circumstances, anesthesiologists have to fully concentrate on the patients.  Once the critical patients are stabilized, we feel relieved, excited and proud.  No physicians of other specialty may have the chance to experience this “sense of achievement,” since the anesthesiologists’ job is just like walking on a wire between life and death, literally.  Currently, the Clinical Anesthesia Division is further divided into the following categories: (a) Cardiovascular anesthesia, (b) Neurosurgical anesthesia, (c) Pediatric anesthesia, (d) Obstetric anesthesia, and (e) Anesthesia for other surgical subspecialties.  The division is also responsible for the consultations of the entire hospital, when it comes to emergent intubation, pre-anesthetic evaluation, labor pain relief and others.


Pain Management

Director : Tsai, Yu-Chuan, MD


This division was formally established in September 1988 and an outpatient service was initiated in October of the same year. The division is aimed at making the correct diagnosis and offering optimal pain relief for patients with acute/chronic pain including medical management, nerve blocks, infusion therapies, evaluation for invasive procedures such as intrathecal pumps and spinal cord stimulators, neuroablative procedures. It also deals with patients referred from inside and outside the hospital to enhance the functions of a medical center and elevate the standards of pain therapy in southern Taiwan.

Basic Anesthesia

Director : Liu, Yen-Chin, MD


As the barriers of basic medical research among specialties have been eliminated in Europe and in the United States as well, the overwhelming importance of cross-departmental research cannot be overemphasized.  The future of basic medical research designed and conducted by physicians with a solid background of academic and clinical training is shining and promising.

In the Department there are two laboratories dedicated to basic research in anesthesia, and they are both equipped with state-of-the-art experimenting instruments and most updated software.  All attending physicians are encouraged to perform researches of their interest either in the clinical setting or in the laboratories using experimental models.


Critical Care

Thanks to the fast-growing development of technology and evidence-based medicine regarding the functions of the heart, lungs and the brain during the past two decades, anesthesiologists nowadays have better understanding of these three vital organ systems of which the problems we deal with every day.  Therefore, critical care was designed to be an individual sector of the Department (yet closely connected with others) and needs to be fully developed in the near future with no spared efforts.  It is the ultimate mission of anesthesiologists to offer postoperative and critical care and restore better functions for patients undergoing surgery on these three organ systems.
