South Dakotans Deserve a Physician to Administer Anesthesia

American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA)

The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) and the South Dakota Society of Anesthesiologists (SDSA) strongly oppose SB 50, which will needlessly dismantle the anesthesia care team model in South Dakota by authorizing nurse anesthetists to administer anesthesia without physician supervision. Additionally, the bill will authorize nurse anesthetists to prescribe patients potentially dangerous controlled substances, including opioids, and perform intricate pain medicine procedures all with no physician oversight or involvement.

Young Age Does Not Equal Low Risk for Patients Needing Aortic Valve Replacement

The Society of Thoracic Surgeons
