Sometimes we lose sight of the soft skills, the fundamentals of safe anesthesia care – the how and why we do things, make informed decision in collaboration with others. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, life in the anesthesia world seemed so much simpler, even routine. The pandemic disrupted care, unearthed competencies and decision making that had not been thought of in some time. Made us appreciate the availability of PPE whenever we needed it. We experienced a dramatic change in how care was delivered, how challenging communication is inside a personal bubble and how quickly under extreme pressure we learned together to improve the safety of our patients and of ourselves. Are the positive learnings for patient and provider safety sustainable or are we back to business as usual?
