Depth of Anesthesia

Residents and attendings from the Massachusetts General Hospital critically explore dogmatic clinical practices in anesthesiology. Anesthesiology is full of claims.

We think that for every claim in anesthesiology, we should know what is supported or refuted by evidence and what claims have no evidence base but stand to reason.
