American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) 'Wakes Up' to Office-Based Anesthesia (OBA)
Date:10/14/2008

hen Olivia Goldsmith, author of The First Wives' Club, died as a result of anesthesia while attempting to have a chin lift at Lenox Hill hospital in Manhattan. One month later another patient also died from anesthesia while attempting to have liposuction of her neck.

Cambridge University Press editor, Marc Strauss, asked why the anesthesiologists hadn't read 'the book.' He quickly discovered that there was no textbook concerning anesthesia for cosmetic surgery. Strauss subsequently tagged Friedberg for the task of producing such a textbook.

When informed he had been selected first of the then 40,000 anesthesiologists in the US, Friedberg asked 'Why me?' He was told that he was the only one doing anything different for cosmetic surgery anesthesia and writing about it.

In April 2007, Cambridge University Press published Friedberg's Anesthesia in Cosmetic Surgery. The book has received positive reviews by the Journal of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Anesthesia & Analgesia, and Dermatologic Surgery.

A Google search for 'office based anesthesia' lists Dr. Friedberg's web site as #6 & 10 (non-sponsored) of 254,000 sites. A similar Yahoo search lists this web site as #9 & 10 (non-sponsored) of 3,820,000 sites. More information

about patient safety in cosmetic surgery anesthesia can be found at http://www.drfriedberg.com.
