What are you most looking forward to at ANESTHESIOLOGY 2017?

“I am looking to learn about upgrades in technology, the Perioperative Surgical Home and corresponding with colleagues as I get closer to retirement. In the area of technology, I want to learn about techniques and different approaches to regional anesthesia, including the technology used to do it, such as different types of ultrasound.”

“Governance issues — how anesthesiologists are represented, what we can do to better represent ourselves. A big issue is out-of-network payments. We had a bill in California, AB-72, that made our contracting very difficult. We are looking at how different states are handling those issues and how we can do a better job with that.”

“I want to learn more about medications, the agents we use. There have been some recent reports about propofol’s mechanism of action, which is interesting, so I want to learn about any research related to that.”
