Surgery Centers: The Bigger Picture Here is my response—as a #journalist and #anesthesiologist–to the @KHNews/@USATODAY report on #surgerycenters. ANY death is horrific. But context matters–and makes for stronger #reporting. @ASCAssociation @By_CJewett @markalesia https://t.co/UURkzdtivN — Dr. James Lozada (@DrJLozada) March 2, 2018 Surgery and anesthesia carry with them small but known risks, including death.

You watch your tiny, fragile child get tucked into a warm incubator and hooked up to all sorts of tubes, including one for oxygen so life giving air can be delivered to ensure each and every gasp for breath. At least that’s what you think. Especially after the nurses or doctors ask you to sign up for a study called SUPPORT to help them gather data to understand the needs of premature infants. It sounds like your premature child will receive extra attention and the best of care. Or maybe not. According to investigative journalist Sheryl Attkisson, the “Surfactant Positive Airway Pressure and Pulse Oximetry Randomized Trial” (SUPPORT) was a study started in 2006 that cost the National Institutes of Health (NIH) nearly $21 million.
