Join us at Cleveland Clinic’s Survey of Current Issues in Surgical Anesthesia

This symposium is designed to present the most recent information on clinical practice issues facing anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists. A diverse faculty will provide an update on preioperative risk stratification, opioid-free anesthesia and multimodal pain control, as well as anesthesia practice and ERAs, perioperative management update, and pediatric anesthesia.

Learning activities will be presented in several formats, including traditional lectures, workshops, and case discussions. Additional break-out sessions include workshops, practice updates, and problem-based learning discussions presented in didactic or hands-on workshop formats.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the current challenges and best practices associated with preoperative risk stratification of patients
  • Identify potential issues with perioperative medicine innovations, evidence, and cultural bias
  • Present the key issues affecting outcomes with anesthesia and enhanced recovery after surgery programs
  • Summarize the pros and cons associated with providing opioid-free anesthesia and both acute and chronic pain control, including use of ketamine, methadone, and regional anesthesia
  • Discuss current perioperative strategies for fluid management, postoperative delirium and cognitive decline, renal protection, intraoperative hypotension, and postoperative pulmonary embolism
  • Critically appraise the principles and practices of anesthesia and enhanced recover after surgery protocols
