Anesthesia used to be dangerous. Careful assessment of risks led anesthesiologists to understanding the dangers. Thought and discussion among anesthesiologists led to solution ideas to develop, study and publish. Insightful medical device corporations then turned these ideas into products that have reduced the danger of anesthesia by 99%.
