What Is Anesthesia?

Because we anesthesiologists are so bad at explaining our purpose in the operating room, our good friends from The Joint Commission have developed this colorful poster of what patients can expect when they go in for a procedure. I guess the ASA could use some education on how to effectively teach patients about anesthesia. Compare the TJC's succinct, graphically intensive poster to the ASA's Lifeline to Modern Medicine website that tries to do the same thing:
Yeah the ASA should use some of the millions they receive from our annual dues and hire a better graphic artist.
