Safety booth at the ASA: Shown above is the ASA committee on Patient Safety and Risk Management display booth at last year’s annual meeting of the American Society of Anesthesiologists. David Sprague, M.D. (left) of the University of North Carolina was the exhibit coordinator. David Gaba, M.D. (right), of Stanford University, APSF Secretary, holds a transtracheal jet ventilator. The APSF section of the exhibit featured information about the difficult airway but abundant other literature was available for distribution. Plan to visit the booth at this year’s ASA.
