PRESIDENT Litwiller, officers of the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA), guests, friends, and colleagues. Forty-seven years ago, the United States Navy sent me to New York City to begin my postgraduate training. I met Dr. Emery Rovenstine at that time, but I did not appreciate the enormous impact that he had on anesthesiology. The list of his residents and those of his teacher, Dr. Ralph Waters, is a “Who’s Who” of the leaders of anesthesiology for their generation and the next. I… 

A comment on the history of the pulsed radiofrequency technique for pain therapy.

The accumulation of data shows unequivocally that PRF is a genuine neurobiologic and clinical phenomenon and is different when compared with continuous radiofrequency, as evidence-based medicine (EBM) pretends.

Pulsed radiofrequency: a neurobiologic and clinical reality.

Training intensivists and clinician-scientists for the 21st century: the Oregon scholars program.

The Oregon Scholars Program is an innovative training program that combines a critical care medicine or research fellowship with traditional clinical anesthesia training to address the need for anesthesiologists trained as intensivists and clinician-scientists.

Pediatric Anesthesia Specialty Societies and Multi-Institutional Collaborations

Specialty societies and collaborations in pediatric anesthesia are crucial for continuous improvement in the care of children and promote research, education, quality improvement, and advocacy at the local, national, and international level.

Hot Topics in Safety for Pediatric Anesthesia

The highest yield safety topics for pediatric anesthesia and efforts to ameliorate risk are described, including the creation of a specialty society, quality and safety committees, large multi-institutional research efforts, and quality improvement initiatives.

Present and future of anaesthesiology

The Section and Board of Anaesthesiology has chaired the development of new training guidelines and curriculum which will serve to make the training more uniform.

Is it Health Information Technology? Task Complexity and Work Substitution

The exploratory research examined how Information Technologies might be replacing some of the tasks formerly processed by physician anesthesiologists (MDAs) and found that MDAs feel ill equipped on conflict resolution and negotiation tasks.

The Genesis of Contemporary American Anesthesiology

This book should be of interest to all anesthesiologists, practitioners, or residents concerned with the origins of the specialty, especially those who are the pedagogical offspring of the men and departments described.

A Study of Deaths Associated With Anesthesia and Surgery

Ten teams consisting of an anesthetist, a surgeon, and a secretary worked for a 5-year period in 10 University hospitals scattered widely over the United States, finding nothing voluntary or selective about the reporting of the deaths, once an institution with its team had agreed to participate.

Prevention of intraoperative anesthesia accidents and related severe injury through safety monitoring.

This and the case analyses support the contention that nearly all the inevitable mishaps that occur during anesthesia can be identified through safety monitoring early enough to prevent most major patient injuries and lessen the medical-legal and malpractice insurance burdens of anesthesiologists.

Resuscitation After Aspiration of Chlorinated Fresh Water

With the increasing popularity of swimming pools containing chemically treated water, another type of drowning, which may differ in character from both fresh-and sea-water drowning, is now presenting itself, ie, drowning after the aspiration of chlorinated fresh water.

Influence of Pulse Oximetry and Capnography on Time to Diagnosis of Critical Incidents in Anesthesia: A Pilot Study Using a Full-Scale Patient Simulator

Simulation may offer new approaches to the study of monitoring technology and the limitations of current simulators and the resources required to perform simulator-based research are impediments to wide-spread use of this tool.

Pluronic microemulsions as nanoreservoirs for extraction of bupivacaine from normal saline.

Oil-in-water microemulsions may be an effective agent to treat cardiotoxicity caused by bupivacaine or other lipophilic drugs.

Treatment of Local Anesthetic-Induced Cardiotoxicity Using Drug Scavenging Nanoparticles.

Emulsion-based nanoparticles extracted bupivacaine from the aqueous phase in a physiological salt solution and attenuated the drug's cardiotoxicity in guinea pig heart to a greater extent than did a macroemulsion.
