ANESTHESIOLOGY has long prided itself as a clinical discipline based on scientific knowledge. This knowledge has been derived from the contributions of countless individuals who, in small and large ways, aspired to advance patient care through scientific inquiry. This scientific inquiry has most effectively captured the attention of practitioners, and had the greatest impact on patient care, when the investigations challenged anesthesiology traditions that were heretofore based on little or no empirical evidence or were based on liberal extrapolations from experiences in other medical disciplines. Because of absent formal challenges and rechallenges to widely embraced theories and practices, we anesthesiologists have all too often applied weak or incorrect information to patient care.
