Example text

The ASA monitoring standards have been widely emulated in other medical specialties and even in fields outside of medicine. Although there are definite parallels in these other efforts (such as in obstetrics and gynecology), no other group has pursued the same degree of definition. Table 2-1. AMERICAN SOCIETY OF ANESTHESIOLOGISTS STANDARDS FOR BASIC ANESTHETIC MONITORING Many of the same management questions that led to the intraoperative monitoring standards have close parallels in the immediate preoperative and postoperative periods in the PACU.

Major attempts at reform of this system have occurred and will continue to occur. However, although a very positive restructuring of the tort liability system could alleviate some of the catecholamine-generating “sword over the head” mentality exhibited by some physicians, it will not relieve anesthesiology personnel of the responsibility to provide maximally safe care for their patients. Integration of systems and protocols to help maximize the quality of patient care, whether from formal standards or not, is an important component of managing an anesthesiology practice.

Contemplation of this compilation of documents may evoke a collective groan from anesthesiology personnel, and maintaining this manual may be misperceived as a bureaucratic chore. Quite the contrary, such a manual can be extraordinarily valuable, as, for example, when it provides crucial information during an emergency. Some suggestions for the content of this compendium exist, but, at minimum, organizational and procedural elements must be included. The organizational elements that should be present include a chart of organization and responsibilities that is not just a call schedule but a clear explanation of who is responsible for what functions of the department and when, with attendant details such as expectations for the practitioner's presence within the institution at designated hours, telephone availability, pager availability, the maximum permissible distance from the institution, and so forth.
