ASA | The evolution of a profession

This piece is a look at the very beginnings of your favorite medical podcast. Today we celebrate the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) and their annual general meetings, which we have covered every year since 2017. Find out how TopMedTalk pioneered its first live transmissions from that meeting in Boston and began providing free medical information for an ever growing online audience.

This piece features a timeless conversation about the profession of Anesthesia, from its inception to the diverse and exciting role we find today. Are we right to say that its a role which is rightly evolving toward a broader focus on perioperative medicine? Can we be sure that those in this profession are right to take a leadership role as evidence of the life saving benefits of the perioperative method become recognised internationally?

Presented by Monty Mythen, Smiths Medical Professor of Anaesthesia and Critical Care at University College London and TopMedTalk's Editor in Chief, with, Mike Grocott, Professor of Anaesthesia and Critical Care Medicine at the University of Southampton, Joff Lacey, now a Consultant Anaesthetist at St George's Hospital in South West London and Sol Aronson, tenured Professor at Duke University.
