Abstract

The literature is sparse. Anesthesiology practice requires a number of competencies, including a store of current medical knowledge, the ability to apply that knowledge, the capacity to exercise sound medical judgment in a broad range of circumstances, the ability to effectively work with surgical team members, and the ability to perform myriad intricate cognitive and technical tasks. 8 The degree to which an anesthesiologist is unable to perform these competencies would be considered a disability.
