American Society of Anesthesiologists Primary Agenda Displayed Says Dr. Barry Friedberg of Cosmetic Surgery Anesthesia

Disclaimer: Dr. Friedberg had no financial interest in the Nellcor, maker of the first commercially successful pulse oximeter.

"When the pulse oximeters became available in 1983, I insisted my hospital get them for every anesthetizing location. I am ashamed to admit that I remained a member of that group for the inglorious period from 1983 to 1990 w
