 Overall Learning Objectives

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

  • Apply the Brain Trauma Foundation guidelines to manage patients with Traumatic Brain Injury.
  • Manage neurological emergencies using the Emergency Neurological Life Support (ENLS) recommendations.
  • Identify resources for educational scholarship including simulation.
  • Discuss recent advances and controversies in neuroanesthesiology including endovascular management of cerebrovascular diseases.
  • Discuss recent advances and discoveries in neurosciences and their impact on anesthesiology.

Accreditation and Designation Statements
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the American Society of Anesthesiologists and the Society for Neuroscience in Anesthesiology and Critical Care.

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 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 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 46th Society of Neuroscience in Anesthesiology and Critical Care Annual Meeting brings a program designed to review and update the educational needs and practice gaps of neuroanesthesiologists and neurocritical care specialists who engage in providing care to the neurologically impaired patients / patients at risk of neurologic injury during the perioperative period as well as neuroscientists who research clinical and basic neuroscience. The workshops, seminars, lectures and poster presentations will specifically address new clinical findings essential to improve the care of patients and advance basic and clinical research in neuroscience. Physicians will learn the current standards of Emergency Neurological Life Support (ENLS) and management of airway in neurosurgical patients by attending the workshops. The symposia will discuss recent advances in clinical and basic research in Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) as well as global patterns of TBI care. The career development sessions will provide the medical educators insights about simulation for career advancement, mentorship and publishing in medical education in addition to non-conventional funding sources, use of social media and effective negotiation skills. Symposium on Frontiers in Neuroscience will provide novel information about human speech cortex function and the role of glymphatics. Neuronal mechanisms of human neuropsychiatric disorders and controversies on endovascular management of cerebrovascular disorders will be discussed.

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.
