Anesthesiology Consultants Exchange (ACE) is a physician-owned group established in 1990. As a team of board-certified anesthesiologists and over 110 CRNAs, ACE provides anesthesia services for Erlanger Health System and Tennova Healthcare Cleveland. Our aim is to deliver personalized, high-quality anesthesia care.
An Anesthesiologist is a physician with additional 3-5 years of specialized training in anesthesiology beyond medical school. A Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) is a registered nurse with a master’s degree and further specialization in anesthesiology.
ACE offers General Anesthesia, Regional Anesthesia, and Monitored Anesthesia Care (MAC). The anesthesiologist determines the type of anesthesia you receive considering factors like your health status, the procedure, and the surgeon’s recommendations.
Pre-Admission Testing: bring a list of your current medications and dosages, be prepared to discuss any health problems, and know the names of your doctors and the dates of your last visits. Make sure to follow any pre-surgery instructions provided during your pre-testing interview.
Review any current health problems with your anesthesia provider. This will help us best tailor your anesthesia plan.
Your anesthesiologist will determine the type of anesthesia you’ll receive. This decision is based on your health status, physical examination, type of procedure, as well as your preferences and those of your surgeon.
Don’t hesitate to discuss any questions or concerns about your anesthesia with your provider. Our goal is to make sure you feel comfortable and informed about all aspects of your anesthesia and procedure.
Ensure a responsible adult is available at the hospital for transportation and to address any other personal needs after the procedure.
