N E T • 3 ANESTHESIA S P E C I A L E D I T I O N ANESTHESIA To Our Readers Deftly intubating patients and purposely putting themselves in the direct path of the coronavirus, anesthesia professionals played an invaluable role during the peak months of the COVID-19 pandemic. Of course, Anesthesia's diverse toolkit goes well beyond intuba- tions. In this issue of Manager's Guide to Anesthesia, we cover regional anesthesia's role in reducing opioid overuse, share a case study on the cost benefits of patient warm- ing, offer a more realistic approach to MH training and examine the most effective technologies for handling difficult airways. We also look at the many ways in which COVID-19 has impacted anesthesia and what you need to succeed in the world of post-pandemic outpatient surgery.
