Anesthesiologists likely provide mechanical ventilation for more patients than any other care providers. The 2014 Journal Symposium focused on improving anesthesiologists’ understanding of mechanical ventilation, with the aim of making improvements in morbidity and for those receiving respiratory care during the course of surgery. The articles in the current issue of Anesthesiology discuss and clarify many aspects of the perioperative use of mechanical ventilation.
