Whether it’s making sure a lung transplant patient gets the gift of life, saving a mother and her two babies or diagnosing a deadly allergic reaction, physician anesthesiologists make critical decisions that save lives.
As ASA advocates for patient-centered, physician-led care through the When Seconds Count™ educational endeavor, we have encouraged members to share stories about the critical role physician anesthesiologists play in delivering the best quality and safest care for our patients.
All ASA members have stories of lives they saved and how their education and training made a dramatic difference in patient outcomes. Whether diagnosing an underlying health condition during pre-surgical screenings or stepping in when a routine procedure becomes an emergency, these stories support our key messages and highlight how our involvement can mean the difference between life and death.
