Participant Experience


Past participants consistently report that this program has inspired and improved their clinical practice. Here are a few comments from recent attendees:


This course was a superb collection of new information and verification of current practices ... I have changed ventilator and oxygenation management, pharmacological choices, renal management of patients based on this. … Quite the whirlwind of information! Enjoyed the entire conference.”

“I have updated my airway and ventilation/oxygenation strategies for neonates, critical care approaches, labor epidural management, POC U/S techniques, plus many more.”

“I have made changes to handover guidelines, ventilation, and peri-operative pain Rx according to recommendations in this course.”

“I have incorporated patient safety principles and OR efficiency strategies presented by this course.”

“Many aspects to mention from this course that have led to practice changes: Physician interaction with hospital management to optimize resources; Improve communication among OR staff and Anesthesia to expedite and optimize efficiency; Changes in several aspects of my Anesthesia technique from the proper use of opioids in ER to the PACU, to paralysis reversal, to Cardio and Renal protection--I could go on and on.”

“There was so much information acquired in this course that I plan to, judiciously and slowly, make profound changes in my everyday practice. Starting with strategies to start an ERAS protocol and the modes to ventilate my patients, the way I talk to my elder patients at end of life, etc.”

“This course gave me useful insights and pearls on opioid-free anesthesia, and invaluable, practical tips on regional anesthesia…and pediatric anesthesia which I have begun to put into practice. Thank you!”

“I plan to present several of these topics at our quarterly meetings to learn about better ways to take care of our patients. Topics include difficult airway management, fluid management, safety in regional anesthesia, preventing renal injury and improving communication among the anesthesia team with nursing, administration, surgeons and other providers.”

“All the lectures I've attended at this meeting showed me some strong possibilities to improve our practice in operating room and PACU. Monitoring patients, difficult airway, adequate oxygenation, ambulatorial practices, ERAS, how to care for obese patients during anesthesia—these surely have changed my practices.”

“Thank you for very thorough and clinically appropriate lectures!”

“As always, the material presented is concise, well organized and relevant. It leads to improvements in patient care and helps me make important decisions to help my staff improve their level of knowledge, understanding and overall patient care.”

“I took away clinical tips and info that I now apply in my practice in order to enhance evidence-based practices. I also greatly appreciate the inclusion of topics addressing stress/EQ/time management.”

“There are so many new evidence-based concepts I have taken with me to use in my practice. For example: The concept of hyperalgesia and chronic pain issues linked to the amount of intra-operative and post-operative narcotics; The use of high oxygen in the preoperative period and how this relates to oxygen toxicity in the alveoli; Ventilation practices and the evidence to support them; and PONV and how we can help our patients with multimodal therapy and when to give certain medications.”

“Anesthesiology Update was an awesome course with outstanding lecturers from both sides of the Atlantic and I am truly impressed with the high quality of the practical lessons to affect my practice.”
