Journal’s Special Edition Highlights Anesthesia’s Role in Emergency Care
January 9, 2013 | Strategic Insights for Health System
The January 2013 special edition of the journal Anaesthesia spotlights the role of the anesthesia provider in life-threatening situations. The special edition takes a broad look at cases in which patients have experienced major trauma; cases involving “specialist hospital situations,” such as pediatrics; and cases that demonstrate anesthesia’s value in the emergency setting. The lead editorial explains the motivation for putting together this special edition: thanks to the evolution of the field, diversification and specialization seem to be outweighing the general study of anesthesia.
