Stephanie Arnold was dead for 37 seconds. She is a strong believer that she would not be alive today without the help of the physician anesthesiologists who saved her life when she suffered an amniotic fluid embolism during childbirth. Arnold, who has allowed ASA to feature her story, will personally share her experience at this year’s Legislative Conference.
Arnold will speak during the When Seconds Count™ educational endeavor session, which is designed to provide ASA members with tips and tactics for delivering effective messages on physician-led care during their Capitol Hill visits. The session will provide an update on the endeavor and highlight important When Seconds Count stories. Stories like Stephanie’s capture attention and help people relate. In addition to Stephanie’s story, examples of other close calls told by physician anesthesiologists will be showcased so conference attendees can see how these examples are an effective tactic that can be used to help support ASA’s key messages in a way that resonates with our audience. Tips on how to weave a story into visits with lawmakers also will be provided.
