"Without unity, anesthesiologists cannot protect the public from those who endeavor to limit patient access to an anesthesiologist's care or compromise patient safety with cost-cutting measures designed by those who stand to profit most."

Bringing Anesthesiologist Assistants Into the OR in California and off the Sidelines
by Mark Zakowski, MD
In 1971 an important class of healthcare providers - anesthesiologist assistants (AAs) - was created. AAs were considered necessary to address the need for additional healthcare professionals who work with physicians to safely care for patients undergoing the increasingly complex and technologic practice of anesthesia. Fast forward 44 years and these needs still exist.
