Anesthesia in the Military Setting

Show Summary Details

Preview

Military anesthesia provides many unique and challenging situations, particularly in the current age of unconventional warfare. The role of the anesthesia provider has been redefined throughout American warfare, and it will continue to evolve alongside the U.S. military and its global involvement. Providers must learn to adapt to their environments and improvise care according to the conveniences available while maintaining standards that ensure the best possible care to military personnel. As emerging data and technologies become available, the practice of combat anesthesia will almost certainly change in order to continue providing a high level of care to the military community.
