Abstract

From personal experience and available resources, such as the American Society of Anesthesiologists Committee on Trauma and Emergency Preparedness templates from the manual for department procedures, the authors describe the primarily flooding impact of Hurricane Harvey in their area of Texas. They review the necessary analysis, development, and implementation of logistics; staffing and relief models; coordination with hospital partners; and dissemination of the planned procedures. The authors emphasize the commitment of anesthesiologists to patient care and rescue efforts outside of the operating room.
