ASA and its journal, Anesthesiology®, announce the 22nd annual Journal Symposium to be held at the ANESTHESIOLOGY™ 2013 annual meeting October 14, 2013, in San Francisco, California. The 2013 Journal Symposium will highlight up-and-coming and noteworthy concepts in anesthesia research and clinical practice.
The 2013 Journal Symposium is titled “Cardiac arrest and resuscitation.”
Cardiac arrest is a rare, nevertheless dramatic event that may occur in the operative setting. In such an emergency situation, patient outcome may significantly depend on quality of care provided immediately in the O.R. as well as in the first hours following recovery of cardiac activity. Recent advances in the pathophysiology, consequences on brain function, clinical management and resuscitation techniques of patients with cardiac arrest open an exciting era in which significant changes in outcome might be expected. This symposium will explore mechanisms and clinical managements for treating a patient presenting with in-hospital cardiac arrest (particularly in the O.R.) that impact on patient outcome and should change our clinical practice. Three invited speakers will lead the session: Ala Nozari, M.D., Ph.D., Department of Anesthesia, Critical Care and Pain Medicine, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, will focus on the pathophysiology of brain injury during and after cardiac arrest arrest and possibilities for brain preservation; Lee Fleisher, M.D., F.A.C.C., Robert D. Dripps Professor of Anesthesiology and Critical Care, Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Philadelphia, will provide cornerstone recommendations for an optimized resuscitation during and after cardiac arrest that makes the difference on outcome; Bruno Riou, M.D., Ph.D., Professor, Department of Emergency Medicine and Surgery (Chair) and Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care, University Pierre and Marie Curie-Paris 6 and Groupe Hospitalier Pitié-Salpêtrière, Paris, France, will discuss the novel therapeutic approaches of extracorporeal life support and its perspectives for the future in the management strategy of cardiac arrest and their link with beating heart organ donation.
