ASER: Enhanced Recovery Protocol Elements. What Is the Level of Evidence?* [watch full session]

9:30 AM – 11:00 AM
Enhanced Recovery Pathways (ERP) have been demonstrated to improve patient outcomes. This session addresses the level of evidence for some of the elements of an enhanced recovery protocol and evaluate which patient reported outcomes should be measured within an ERP.

Sunday, April 30

SmartTots: Neurotoxicity in Children Exposed to Anesthesia* [watch full session]
11:30 AM – 1:00 PM
Attend the SmartTots Panel to discuss the latest research and updates on the effects of neurotoxicity on children. The panel will examine age-dependent changes in the anesthesia-induced EEG in children, and how this activity relates to brain development, the basic neurobiology of critical period plasticity in early childhood development, and how it relates to anesthetic mechanisms and describe major findings of the Mayo Anesthesia Safety in Kids (MASK) study.

CAS: Social Accountability: How can Anesthesiology Face the Challenge?* [watch full session]
3:30 PM – 6:00 PM
This session challenges the international anesthesia community to consider our role in the delivery of anesthesia care to indigenous and rural populations. Anesthesia care is provided in many remote locations, but other areas lack trained anesthesia providers. Whose problem is it? We are all socially accountable. This panel of experts will provide their experiences and perspectives on this challenging aspect of anesthesia care, but most importantly we want to hear from you.

SAMBA: The Perioperative Management of the Heroin/Fentanyl Addicted Patient: The Epidemic is Upon Us!* [watch full session]
7:30 AM – 9:00 AM
Anesthesiologists are now facing a veritable explosion of surgical patients addicted to heroin (H). According to the DEA “overdose deaths, from prescription drugs and (H), have reached epidemic proportions.” As the number of opioid prescriptions between 1991 and 2011 rose by 300%, Cartels began flooding the USA with (H) and Fentanyl (F). For opioid users, it made (H) cheaper, more potent, and easier to acquire than prescription meds. Recovery from these drugs is extremely difficult.

eSAS: Practical Clinical Approaches to Prevention of Postoperative Delirium: A Review of Modern Evidence* [watch full session]
8:00 AM – 9:30 AM
This session features research from three exceptional early-stage investigators, who have developed a diverse and complementary expertise studying postoperative delirium prevention through practical clinical approaches. Each investigator is actively involved in recent randomized-controlled trials assessing interventions to prevent postoperative delirium, and will present key findings from such studies.

Encourage, stimulate, and fund ongoing anesthesia-related research projects that will enhance and advance the specialty, and to disseminate current, state-of-the-art, basic and clinical research data in all areas of clinical anesthesia, including perioperative medicine, critical care, and pain management. The IARS is focused solely on the advancement and support of education and scientific research related to anesthesiology.
