Today, expert speakers featured in this issue focused on a wide range of challenges facing anesthesiologists and healthcare, however, they also shared opportunities and a common goal to aim to be better, both as academics, investigators and clinicians. During a tactical workshop, attendees worked closely with Anesthesia & Analgesia Editors to develop skills to succeed at manuscript peer review. Another compelling session offered rescue therapies when a ventilator is not sufficient. Three sessions focused on addressing challenges to improving patient care including applying machine learning models for clinical care, quantifying hypothesis-disproving studies and novel approaches to assess obstetric hemorrhage. Plus, explore the pioneering research being conducted by the Kosaka Best Abstract Award Winners and three abstract presenters.

Newsletter Issue 5: A Bright Future – April 21, 2023

The future of the anesthesiology specialty is bright. From two Kosaka Top Abstract Finalists who are making impressive grounds towards advancing anesthesia research to energized young poster presenters sharing their studies in the poster hall to a highly engaged group of early-stage anesthesiology scholars who joined the IARS, AUA, SOCCA and Early-Stage Anesthesiology Scholars (eSAS) Scholars’ Day on Saturday, April 15, this is more evident than ever. To add to this encouraging evidence was the anesthesiology thought leaders who leant their wisdom during the Scholars’ Day to guide these promising scholars to find the appropriate path for funding and in academic medicine as well as addressing important topics impacting patient care such as inequalities in healthcare. Plus, in one session cosponsored by eSAS, young investigators shared their long-term efforts directed at better understanding sepsis and improving patient outcomes.

We want to express our deep gratitude to our hardworking and diligent Daily Dose writers, editors, website manager and photographer, without whom this newsletter would not be possible.

In this final issue for 2023, thought leaders from a wide variety of anesthesia subspecialties contemplate the future of anesthesia research and offer a promising and bright perspective for anesthesiology and patient care at the IARS 2023 Annual Meeting. During the International Science Symposium, experts revisited the poliomyelitis epidemic and the creation of the first intensive care unit (ICU) and extrapolated how this has influenced critical care medicine today and will in the future. Additionally, SmartTots Research Grant Recipients outlined the latest advances in the study of pediatric anesthetic neurotoxicity. In another engaging session, speakers explained how the intersection of two specialties led to promising drugs to treat psychiatric disorders.
