All the information in this year’s Symposium is applicable to the busy, clinically-oriented anesthesia care provider. Participants will hear from numerous experts in the field of anesthesiology and learn the latest information regarding a broad variety of anesthesia-related topics.  More concise lectures and twice as many presentations and mini-symposium.   PBLDS return with ample time for lively discussion.




Upon completion of this course the participant should be able to:
  1. Discuss the importance and take the lead in one’s practice to establish standardized anesthesia handoffs.
  2. Describe techniques to prevent or limit expansion of intracranial hemorrhage during the perioperative period.
  3. Identify the urgency of acute stroke intervention, possible complications and articulate the path of acute patient care.
  4. Analyze the utility of predictive modeling in clinical practice and value of financial services.
  5. Tell the state of evidence for 1:1:1 massive transfusion in trauma.
  6. Examine factors that contribute to delirium and postoperative cognitive dysfunction and develop practice changes that can improve outcomes in their patient population.
  7. ReRelate the role of factor and fibrinogen concentrates in coagulation in the perioperative period and apply that knowledge to patient management.
  8. Identify the effects of anesthetics on tumorigenesis and summarize the evidence.
  9. Explain liver pathophysiology and the impact on coagulation and develop anesthetic plans that integrate this knowledge.
  10. Identify the impact of right ventricular dysfunction and acute care management.
  11. Explain goal directed therapy in terms of the supporting literature and practical application.
  12. Describe and appreciate the advances in resuscitation of hemorrhagic shock.
  13. Discuss the need for uniform burn management strategies.
  14. Explain to the anesthetic implications in the setting of orthopedic trauma surgery.
  15. Express the key features of continuous versus single-shot techniques for analgesia and when one approach may be the choice.
  16. Express the key features of continuous versus single-shot techniques for analgesia and when one approach may be the choice.
  17. Discuss evidence-based practices for the perioperative management of pacemakers and make appropriate recommendations on that basis.
  18. Express to colleagues and the public regarding the severity of the opioid crisis and offer possible solutions.
  19. Describe the risks of anesthetizing a patient with known obstructive sleep apnea and tailor and anesthetic to mitigate adverse outcomes.
  20. Choose the optimal approach for truncal analgesia in the acute pain setting, i.e. epidural, paravertebral, TAPs or quadratus lumborum.
