port this important initiative. ASA's signature achievement has been the safety of anesthesia care and Lifebox extends this commitment to the far corners of the world."

"The generous support we are receiving from the American Society of Anesthesiologists allows us to continue our mission of saving lives by providing the most basic tools to medical facilities internationally, said Atul Gawande, MD, MPH, founder of Lifebox, Surgeon at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, Associate Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School and Associate Professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management at the Harvard School of Public Health. "By closing the global pulse oximetry gap and using the World Health Organization Surgical Safety Checklist, Lifebox could cut death rates in surgery by up to a half worldwide."

Dr. Gawande, one of TIME Magazine's 100 most influential people in the world and New York Times best-selling author of The Checklist Manifesto, will open the annual meeting with a keynote address emphasizing the importance of safe surgery. Dr. Gawande will issue a challenge: to reduce inpatient surgical mortality to less than 1 percent globally.

Lifebox has also received the support of other organizations, including the nonprofit Smile Train, a key early funder and collaborator responsible for the donation of thousands of oximeters internationally.
