The ANESTHESIOLOGY 2012 annual meeting last October in Washington D.C. featured 34 scientific and educational exhibits as well as 921 poster sessions of the increasingly popular section Medically Challenging Cases. The growth of the Medically Challenging Cases proves that it has been a resounding success. This year, every case was moderated by physicians who gave their time willingly to support discussion of the presented cases, and the sessions were supervised by a committee member. In the future, we will further consolidate like presentations and the oversight of the sessions for a better educational experience. Some of the Scientific Exhibits were focused on airway management, pain management, peripheral nerve blocks, including use of ultrasound techniques, and exhibits that educate through the use of computer-based learning, advanced communication technology, handheld devices, videos and simulators. Exhibits concerning practical aspects of patient care such as vascular access, perioperative management issues and echocardiography were also highlighted, including the use of virtual and 3-dimensional imaging. Administrative exhibits provided information on technology and anesthesia, anesthesia for trauma, and pharmacology in anesthesia. The exhibits were evaluated by the committee members for originality, clinical relevance, scientific merit and visual impact. Thirty-four exhibits were presented at the meeting, and three exhibits received awards. The winners are featured in the photos on these pages.
