Point of Care Ultrasound in Perioperative, Critical Care, and Pain Medicine


ANESTHESIOLOGY 2018 Journal Symposium Description
American Society of Anesthesiologists Annual Meeting 2018
Monday, October 15, 2018 San Francisco, California

A stroll through the operating rooms, ICUs, or clinics of a modern health system demonstrate that we are in the midst of a revolution in the use of point of care ultrasound (point-of-care ultrasound).  Just a decade or two ago, large unwieldy point-of-care ultrasound machines were relegated to high acuity operating rooms.  Now, point-of-care ultrasound is used to guide diagnosis, treatment, and management of patients across the perioperative, critical care, and pain medicine spectrum.  As devices have shrunk from large carts to handheld smartphones, they have permeated all phases of care and levels of training; first year residents comfortably use ultrasound for routine vascular cannulation and it has replaced invasive hemodynamic monitoring in many high risk procedures.  However, many questions remain regarding the use of point-of-care ultrasound by the anesthesiologist: what diagnostic and management dilemmas could be informed or eliminated by the use of point-of-care ultrasound? Where does convincing, reliable evidence demonstrate the underutilization of point-of-care ultrasound as a standard of care? How much of current point-of-care ultrasound use is evidence based, versus technology fad? How has point-of-care ultrasound changed clinical outcomes? What can the history of point-of-care ultrasound teach us about its future applications? What are the next novel frontiers for the use of point-of-care ultrasound by anesthesiologists? The 2018 Journal Symposium seeks to showcase current concepts and current research in the field. Three experts will introduce these topics for the first 90 minutes of the symposium, with 20 minute presentations and 10 minute discussions.

We invite abstracts on this topic from all related fields: basic science, translational, clinical, quality improvement, and education research. The top 8 abstracts will be presented orally during the second half of the symposium.     The authors of abstracts selected for the symposium will be offered an opportunity to submit their work to Anesthesiology for inclusion in an issue to be published in the spring of 2019.
