Non-Accredited Satellite Symposia

SATURDAY, October 13

Pressure & Flow: Preventing & Treating Intraoperative Hypotension
Saturday, October 13 | Noon – 1 p.m. 
Moscone Center South, Level 3, Room 305-314
Presented by: Edwards Lifesciences, Industry Supporter
 
Though intraoperative hypotension is common in surgical patients, numerous studies now indicate that it is strongly associated with risk. Avoidance of hypotension and strategies to optimize fluid management in surgical patients are two modifiable factors that may contribute to improved patient outcomes. “Prompt treatment of intraoperative hypotension is more likely to improve patient outcome if the treatment is consistent with the underlying mechanism of hypotension.” This Satellite Symposium will review the clinical implications of intraoperative hypotension and strategies to reduce associated risk.

Discover how an integrated monitoring approach provides anesthesiologists with additional clinical insight.
Recognize the value of simultaneously using multiple parameters during perioperative care, such as noninvasive continuous hemoglobin, pleth variability, and brain monitoring.

PONV: Current and Future Management Strategies in the Surgical Patient
Saturday, October 13, 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.
W Hotel, Great Room 2, Level 3
Presented by: Acacia Pharma, Annual Meeting Supporter
 
Postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) remains a common problem in the management of patients undergoing a wide variety of surgical procedures. PONV occurs in 10% to 20% of patients with zero or one risk factor and can run as high as 40% to 80% of patients with two or more risk factors. The consequences of PONV are far reaching—ranging from reduced patient satisfaction levels to potentially more serious medical complications that may impact surgical outcomes and increase costs. It is important for anesthesiologists and other members of the surgical team to understand not only the incidence and etiology of PONV, but the risk factors, risk stratification strategies, and current management approaches—to better predict which patients would benefit most from medical intervention to optimize outcomes. This program is designed to provide attendees with practical strategies for the management of PONV as well as a review of recent clinical trial data in prophylaxis and treatment.

SUNDAY, October 14

VIP Experts' Session Novel Approach to Optimize Analgesia
Sunday, October 14 | 7 - 8 a.m. 
W San Francisco Hotel
Presented by: Medasense

Optimum pain control during surgery is a major challenge, impacting outcomes, length of stay and cost of treatment.  Commonly used parameters, like heart rate and blood pressure, poorly reflect the patient's response to stress, stimuli, or effect of medications.  The PMD-200 system and its NOL® index are a novel approach to quantify intraoperative nociception, thereby helping clinicians optimize analgesics to patients' specific sensitivity and needs.

Daniel Sessler, M.D., Cleveland Clinic
