18th Annual Rhode Island Anesthesia Conference
Tackling the Tough Topics
Saturday, Mach 23, 2013
The Providence Marriott
Welcome to the 18th Annual Rhode Island Anesthesia Conference. As always, this conference will serve to review and update the provider’s knowledge on common anesthesia topics we all face. The 2013 conference will cover a breadth of topics from the management of patients with severe lung disease to substance abuse among professionals in the operating theatre. We are thrilled to have Dr. Peter Slinger, an internationally known figure and professor of anesthesia from the University of Toronto and Toronto General Hospital, who will provide us with two lectures relating to one of his many areas of expertise—thoracic anesthesia. We are equally thrilled to have Dr. Michael Fitzsimons, who is a cardiac anesthesiologist with a nationally recognized interest in substance abuse among health care providers and he will provide us with a fascinating perspective and ten years of data from his experience. For the afternoon we have put together a panel of experts to tackle the truly tough questions. What should our goals be in perioperative hemodynamic monitoring and fluid management and how do we measure our success? We will explore these problems with lectures, case presentations and questions from the audience. We look forward to seeing you there.
