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 nonoperating room anesthesia, enhanced recovery and perioperative surgical home care, as well as anesthesia for bariatric surgery, orthopedic surgery, and obstetric procedures.

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.
