Goldsteins comment on cyberthreat awareness in anesthesia

Essential anesthesia devices have easily overlooked yet potentially serious cyber-vulnerabilities, according to a new article by J. Chris Goldstein, M.D., and Heidi Goldstein, M.D., both affiliated anesthesiology faculty based at the Malcom Randall VA Medical Center.

The article, titled “Intraoperative cyberattacks: cyberthreat awareness and cyber-resilience strategies in anesthesia,” was published in the Canadian Journal of Anesthesia in September.

The Goldsteins have recently published several peer-reviewed articles as a call to action regarding artificial intelligence education in medicine and anesthesiology.
