In-Kind Commercial Supporters at the Anesthesiology 2013 Annual Meeting Audrée A. Bendo, M.D.,M.S., Chair
Committee on Annual Meeting Oversight



Each year at the ASA annual meeting, attendees benefit from the experience gained through hands-on use of specialized equipment in our educational workshops.

 

Many of the workshops at the annual meeting are made possible through the generous in-kind donation of medical supplies and equipment by commercial supporters. Whether it is acupuncture needles, ultrasound systems, videolaryngoscopes or manikins, equipment provided by commercial supporters is an essential ingredient in the success of each workshop.
