When Seconds Count


ASA’s new Educational Endeavor, When Seconds Count™, was developed from extensive research to educate key stakeholders (policymakers, patients and the general public) about the importance of having a physician anesthesiologist administer or lead the administration of anesthesia safely. Physician anesthesiologists have extensive education and training that allows them to quickly medically diagnose and effectively respond to any emergencies or complications that may arise during a surgical procedure.
