Every day, anesthesiologists provide life-saving care when patients need it most. They keep patients stable and safe through the administration of anesthesia and monitor vital signs and body functions. These physicians have the skills and training needed to intervene in case of an emergency during surgery.
The ASA does not employ physician anesthesiologists on staff and cannot respond
to patient inquiries regarding specific medical conditions or anesthesia administration.
Please direct any questions related to anesthetics, procedures or treatment outcomes
to the patient’s anesthesiologist or general physician.
