Women in Anesthesiology Statement on Racism in America

Women in Anesthesiology is an independent anesthesiology organization consisting of women of every color. Injustice felt by one of us is felt by all of us.
We recognize that our specialty of anesthesiology is not immune to the inequalities experienced by the black community. We recognize that pregnant black women are less likely to receive a labor epidural or to receive the preferred anesthetic for cesarean delivery.
We recognize that black children are less likely to have a parent present at induction of anesthesia or to receive antianxiety medications before surgery. We recognize that black children and adults sometimes receive inferior pain management.

I put a photo thread together to describe the themes that emerged during a 34 hours-long stent in the hospital I just completed. 1/
Loneliness.
During my residency at @MGHMedicine I started a habit of taking a break by walking the halls late at night when on call. My hospital is noticeably more empty at night in the non-patient care areas. I enjoy the casual encounters that take place here. It was lonely. 2/
“I don’t know.”
The loneliness in the hallways reflects the isolation you feel as an attending managing #COVID19 pts. Past medschool, I’ve never spent so much time saying, “I don’t know.” We’re still learning about this disease. It feels like you’re in a black box at times. 3/

“Who is your boss?”

Physician, 2000: “My patient.”
Physician, 2010: “My employer.”
Physician, 2020: “The stakeholders.”

#Anesthesiology is hardest hit, accounting for 33% of physicians bought out by private equity in this study. A total of 1894 physicians and climbing, 246 ➡️593➡️458➡️597 (and this data is already 4 years old).
“Private equity firms expect greater than 20% annual returns, [which] may conflict with the need for longer-term investments in practice stability, physician recruitment, quality, and safety.”

Engaging and inspiring grand rounds from @EMARIANOMD today @HSSAnesthesia about biggest threats to #anesthesiology —concerns and solutions- classic Ed. Too much good info to share so excuse the string 1/8
Loss of identity.
-anesthesia is safe. We have enabled remarkable surgeries to happen and make it look easy
-we are sometimes invisible. We have a “ambivalence toward recognition”
-loss of identity ➡️ #burnout 2/8
SOLUTION to loss of identity
- We need to consider our brand
- #anesthesiology can lead in #PrecisionMedicine
- Take a “victory lap” and talk to families after #anesthesia
- Know when to take the mask off. Lead committees, contribute to the hospital, community impact 3/8

Citation counts come from OTHER RESEARCHERS. They are important, yes.

But, sharing #science on #SoMe=broad & instantaneous dissemination to those who focus their time AT THE BEDSIDE. Which may surprise some- but is MOST OF MEDICINE especially....#anesthesiology.(Thread) #AUA2019
A metric like the “Kardashian Index” *MAY* be relevant in genome biology where the proportion of basic/translational science is significantly higher and no immediate bedside application for a general practitioner is there. (and I’m making an assumption here) #medtwitter #aua2019
When your #research is relevant primarily to other #scientists who are also writing research papers then citation counts do more wholly reflect the paper’s impact. But in clinical research, it’s different. Bedside clinicians are looking to the literature for guidance & new ideas.

A true story about what Women in Anesthesiology & #WomeninMedicine were able to accomplish in a matter of months. 1/x
Last fall, I was looking into why @asalifeline did not have a statement supporting #parentalleave for anesthesiologists when nearly all other major specialties did. 2/x
Then @JosephHyder sent me this abstract from @ErikaRangelMD. It was exactly the survey we needed to do for our specialty. @Sdoddmd & I pitched a pilot survey for the #WIA2017 meeting to @rekhakuttikat, and she was totally on board. @womenmdinanesth 3/x
