On The Cover:

An analysis of malpractice claims associated with massive hemorrhage from the Anesthesia Closed Claims Project appears in this issue of ANESTHESIOLOGY. Hemorrhage claims were most common in obstetrics and spine surgery. Lack of timely diagnosis, transfusion, and return to the operating room were common factors among these claims. (Cover photo: J.P.
