We stand »today in the operating theatre before the irretrievable division of labour: the surgeon devotes himself fully to his operation, while the anaesthetist monitors and controls all the patient’s vital functions. Those who like paradoxes could express it as follows: the anaesthetist is the specialist for everything non-operative, for everything non-specialist, to a certain extent for everything perioperative, while the surgeon is the specialist for the specific operation«. « Naturally the anaesthetist must have the potential to achieve a reasonable career position.
In response to the increasing criticism in the media of the inhumane hospital, Professor Weis said it was now the aim of the anaesthetists to contribute to that debate by providing best practice analgesia in surgery and relieving suffering amongst the very sick in the intensive care environment. The presence of the Presidents of the various medical societies representing surgery, ENT and head and neck surgery, pharmacology and that of legal medicine as well as the good wishes from the Presidents of the societies of ophthalmology, obstetrics, neurosurgery, orthopaedics and urology confirmed the standing and the recognition of this new field amongst the other specialties at that time.
Furthermore, anaesthetists have been asked on many occasions to give presentations as experts at conferences of other specialties. On the basis of the agreement with the surgeons, the name change seemed justified and if any objections were expected, it would be from the field of internal medicine. It was discussed whether to use the term »reanimation« or »resuscitation« and include it in the name. After lengthy discussion »Wiederbelebung (resuscitation)« was decided upon, as Horatz explained at the General Assembly on 17 September 1965 in Zurich: it was felt that »Wiederbelebung (resuscitation) would be better understood than reanimation by the lay person«.
