American Society of Anesthesiologists

The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) takes pride in its dedication to raise and maintain the standards of the medical practice of anesthesiology and to improve patient care by providing outstanding education, research and scientific knowledge to physician anesthesiologists and care team members. The ASA Perioperative Brain Health Initiative’s (PBHI) mission is to protect and preserve the brain function of all patients undergoing a surgical procedure or intervention. The PBHI engages a multidisciplinary group to work with providers, payers and the public to minimize the impact of pre-existing cognitive deficits, and optimize the cognitive recovery and perioperative experience for adults 65 years and older undergoing surgery.
