Trauma and Emergency Preparedness

Physician anesthesiologists offer a unique expertise and skill set that is significantly different from those offered by other medical specialties that care for trauma patients. While not every physician anesthesiologist will be directly involved in patient care during a mass disaster, most will care for trauma patients in their emergency department, operating room, ICU and pain clinic—whether in a trauma center or not—at some time during the patient’s acute resuscitation or chronic follow-up.
