Overall Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Review current findings in the molecular level of fluid therapy in patients with neurologic impairment.
  • Employ new techniques in monitoring of neurosurgical patients during the perioperative period and in neurocritical care unit.
  • Explain practical essentials of the use of ultrasound in the perioperative settings of neurosurgical patients through hands on practice.
  • Demonstrate new educational methods of simulations in teaching essentials of neuroanesthesia and neurocritical care.
  • Evaluate methods of neuromonitoring in assessment of consciousness and improving outcomes in neurosurgical patients.
  • Review advancements in Neuroregeneration in injured central nervous system.
  • Discuss current improvements in restorative neurosurgery and models of interface between the brain and computerized mechanical models.
  • Create a healthy environment of debate on current research in basic science and clinical research of perioperative care of neurologically impaired patients.
  • List current perioperative coagulation methods and their effect on neurosurgical procedures.
  • Review an update on anesthetic considerations of patients presenting with ischemic stroke.
  • Discuss analytic review of research studies currently being published in Perioperative Neurosciences.

Disclosure Statement                                   
The American Society of Anesthesiologists remains strongly committed to providing the best available evidence-based clinical information to participants of this educational activity and requires an open disclosure of any potential conflict of interest identified by our faculty members. It is not the intent of the American Society of Anesthesiologists to eliminate all situations of potential conflict of interest, but rather to enable those who are working with the American Society of Anesthesiologists to recognize situations that may be subject to question by others. All disclosed conflicts of interest are reviewed by the educational activity course director/chair to ensure that such situations are properly evaluated and, if necessary, resolved. The American Society of Anesthesiologists educational standards pertaining to conflict of interest are intended to maintain the professional autonomy of the clinical experts inherent in promoting a balanced presentation of science. Through our review process, all American Society of Anesthesiologists CME activities are ensured of independent, objective, scientifically balanced presentations of information. Disclosure of any or no relationships will be made available for all educational activities.

The information provided at this CME activity is for continuing education purposes only and is not meant to substitute for the independent medical judgment of a healthcare provider relative to diagnostic and treatment options of a specific patient’s medical condition.

Statement of Need 
The 45th Society of Neurosciences in Anesthesiology and Critical Care Annual Meeting brings a program designed to review and update the educational needs and practice gaps of Anesthesiologists and neurocritical care specialists as well as Neuroscientists that engage in providing care of the neurologically impaired patients especially during the perioperative period. The workshops, seminars, lectures and poster presentations will specifically address new clinical findings essential to improve care of these patients. New monitoring devices, including perioperative use of ultrasound and neuromonitoring devices will be discussed. Also academic educators will have a chance to review novel methods of teaching through simulations. The symposia will address the current innovative ideas on brain and machine interaction as well as new anticoagulation methods during the perioperative period. The basic science of perioperative fluid management will help the participants in choosing correct hydration methods for the specific patient population.

The program is designed to be useful for both the general anesthesiologist who is occasionally facing a neurologically impaired patient as well as regular neuroanesthesia and neurocritical care specialist.
