Patients Deserve Expert Anesthesia Care
Anesthesia is unlike primary or preventative health care. It occurs in a complex, high-risk setting where complications can arise quickly, requiring immediate medical attention. That’s why the highest standards call for a team to provide anesthesia care. The team can include nurse anesthetists (CRNAs), anesthesiologist assistants and medical residents – all led by a physician.
Unfortunately, some CRNAs want to break up the Anesthesia Care Team model.
Physician anesthesiologists have the most complete training and education. Having them lead the Anesthesia Care Team keeps patients safe.
