21st Annual Merel H. Harmel Lecture

Life at the Frontier Warren M. Zapol, MD

Professor Emeritus Anesthetist-in-Chief at Massachusetts General Hospital and the Reginald Jenney Professor of Anaesthesia at Harvard Medical School

Wednesday, November 3, 2010 7:30 am, Duke North, Room 2002 This is a joint Grand Rounds with the Department of Surgery.

Warren M. Zapol, MD, is the emeritus Anesthetist-in-Chief at Massachusetts General Hospital and the Reginald Jenney Professor of Anaesthesia at Harvard Medical School. From 1994 to 2008, Dr. Zapol served as anesthetist-in-chief at MGH and is currently the director of the MGH Anesthesia Center for Critical Care Research. A graduate of MIT and the University of Rochester School of Medicine, Dr. Zapol’s major research efforts include studies of acute respiratory failure in animals and humans. Supported by the National Science Foundation, he has led nine Antarctic expeditions to study the diving mechanisms and adaptations of

the Weddell seal. Through that research his team learned how marine mammals avoid decompression illness and hypoxia. In 2003, he was awarded the Intellectual Property Owners Association’s Inventor of the Year Award for the treatment of hypoxic human newborns with inhaled nitric oxide, a technique now used to save the lives of thousands of babies each year that he pioneered with his MGH team. In 2006, a steep mountain glacier in Antarctica was named for Dr. Zapol. In 2008, he was appointed by President George W. Bush as the academic representative to the U.S. Arctic Research Commission.

THE BACK PAGE Changes for Your Health Care Reimbursement Account in 2011 In 2011, there will be a few changes in how you can use your Health Care Reimbursement Account as a result of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, commonly known as national health care reform. Effective Jan. 1, 2011, you will need a doctor’s prescription to be reimbursed for over-thecounter drugs and medicines such as Claritin, Advil and Robitussin. Because approval for reimbursement of these purchases must include a copy of the prescription and the receipt, you must submit a Pay Me Back claim form for reimbursement; the WageWorks(R) Health Care Card cannot be used for these purchases. The WageWorks card can still be used for purchases of eligible overthe-counter medical items and supplies, such as bandages, contact lens solutions, insulin and diabetic supplies, and birth control. For a more extensive list of eligible and ineligible over-the-counter purchases using your WageWorks card, visit the website referenced below. Also, health care reform will make adult children eligible for coverage on your medical plan up to age 26. So any eligible expenses incurred on or after January 1, 2011, for your adult child(ren) up to their 26th birthday may be reimbursed through your Health Care Reimbursement Account. For more information, please call WageWorks Customer Service at 1-877-924-3967 or visit the following website: http://www.hr.duke.edu/ news/items/2010_09_30health_reimbursement.php

Who Knew? Detroit Woodward Avenue in Detroit, Michigan, carries the designation M-1, so named because it was the first paved road anywhere.
