The world of ambulatory anesthesia moves at a rapid pace. Our challenges come from various sources that include governmental regulations and changes in law, our interactions with business administration, our never-ending commitment to quality and our increasingly challenging patient population. As 70-80 percent of anesthetics are ambulatory, it becomes crucial to distinguish ourselves as a society resource. SAMBA serves us not just in doing ambulatory, but in doing ambulatory well. There are many items that do not have to pose a learning curve, and SAMBA is a resource for assistance so we as ambulatory anesthesiologists can spend time making our mark in a shared learning construct. Within the anesthesiology world, SAMBA’s past and current leaders are the ultimate thought-leaders in our field.
