The future of cardiothoracic anesthesia.
The future of cardiothoracic anesthesia, simply stated, depends on establishing and maintaining a unique and differentiated quality and identity that promotes and contributes positive value to patients, surgical colleagues, and health system administrators who are all also responsible for seeking value. Cardiovascular anesthesiologists must therefore be prepared to define their value through demonstrating that unique quality. To do this, they must codify and continue to push the leading edge in education, research, and clinical innovation for the subspecialty of anesthesia and thereby ensure a role in defining true value as the best.
