Saturday, Mach 22, 2014
The Providence Marriott
Welcome to the 19th Annual Rhode Island Anesthesia Conference!
As always, the conference will serve to review and update the provider’s
knowledge on the common anesthesia topics we all face. The 2014
conference will cover a breadth of topics from the management of complex
trauma patients to the effects of anesthesia on children. We will even
explore the heuristics of medical decision making. We are thrilled to have
Dr. Peter J. Davis, MD with us this year. Dr. Davis is the Anesthesiologistin-
Chief at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC and serves as
a section editor for “Anesthesia and Analgesia.” We are equally thrilled
to welcome Dr. Maureen McCunn, MD, MIPP, FCCM. Dr. McCunn is
an Associate Professor at the University of Maryland School of Medicine
and practices anesthesia and critical care at The R Adams Crowley Shock
Trauma Center. Dr. McCunn is a national and international figure in
trauma with interests in international trauma systems, critical care, and
she has founded Global Injury Solutions. She will update us on ATLS. We
also welcome Dr. John E. Brush. Jr., MD, FACC who is a cardiologist and is
a Professor of Medicine at Eastern Virginia Medical School with an interest
in medical decision making. As we did last year, we have put together a
panel of experts to tackle truly tough questions including medical decision
making in the trauma OR and complex issues in the care of pediatric
patients. Our case presentation format for these questions will invite
audience participation. We look forward to seeing you there.
