We need to test our assumptions. Anesthesia professionals and the those that we work with have been trained to be cogs in complex organization... the problem is no one wants those cogs anymore.
If I'm wrong, tell me so. Educate me. If you have better ideas and want to let people know about them, let me post your ideas or thoughts on the the HackAnesthesia blog. Keep it short and keep it civil, but all ideas are welcome from anyone. Contact me here.
