D. An important field of the Anesthesiology Department's activity is the operation of a Post-anesthesia Care Unit for patients who have undergone surgery, with capacity 12 beds.
The PACU is operational 24/7 and undertakes the care of patients right after surgery and for a period of 1 to 24 or sometimes 48 hours, if the ICU is unable to take them on.
Moreover, in the PACU Anesthesiologists also carry out catheterizations of central veins on patients of other Departments (with the exception of the Nephrology Department) who are in need of parenteral nutrition, chemotherapy etc.

Ε. Another important field of activity are the extrasurgical activities, such as the administration of anesthesia for diagnostic imaging tests, endoscopic diagnostic procedures and radiotherapy cases.

F. In addition, the Department takes care of emergency cardiopulmonary resuscitation cases inside the other Departments of the hospital and the ER, and is involved in the transport of critically ill, mechanically ventilated patients.

G. Something extremely innovative for the Greek standards is the organized operation by the Anesthesiology Department of an One Day Care Unit for orthopedics, pediatric surgery and other cases that undergo surgery under General or Regional anesthesia and leave the Hospital on the same day.

H.  In the framework of the preparation of One Day Care patients, an Outpatient Anesthesiology Practice operates every Monday morning and Wednesday afternoon.

I.  The responsibilities of the Anesthesiology Department include acute post-operative pain management in collaboration with the Nursing Directorate.
