Anesthesia getting paid too much?

I'll be honest, I've been thinking about this for a bit. Anesthesia gets paid.... too much? You intubate, push some meds, sit down till the case ends. The other side of the drape, there's chaos. Yet, the side of the drape that's -I would say- around 3x easier a job compared to being a general surgeon, on average gets paid MORE than the actual surgeon. How is this allowed. This is craziness. What world is it okay for a general surgeon to get paid less than an anesthesiologist lol. It's not... Read more

Has anyone ever intentionally placed one? I’ve always wanted to place one for those sicker patients we’re afraid to put asleep. For people who have “carefully titrated” them in marginal patients, what were the boluses you’ve been doing? And finally how do you place them? Do you use the same big tuohy needle and the epidural catheter?

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: The optimal anaesthesia approach for endovascular treatment (EVT) in acute ischaemic stroke is currently unknown. In stroke due to medium vessel occlusions (MeVO), the occluded vessels are particularly small and more difficult to access, especially in restless or uncooperative patients. In these patients, general anaesthesia (GA) may be preferred by physicians to prevent complications due to patient movement. We investigated physicians' approaches to anaesthesia during EVT for MeVO stroke.METHODS: ...

Perioperative assessment of ventricular function by echocardiography is common in the contemporary practice of cardiac anesthesiology.1 Although left ventricular ejection fraction is a gold standard for evaluating left ventricular function, it has shortcomings, including observer variability, load dependency, and lack of sensitivity for detection of early ventricular dysfunction.1-3 Newer echocardiographic modalities, such as strain analysis, can be effective in measuring systolic function for cardiac surgical patients, but still require further validation and broader implementation in the operating room setting.
