Thanks to Everyone for Our Success at the ASA Mark F. Newman, MD

I want to express my sincere thanks to everyone for the phenomenal success that we enjoyed at the ASA. Both the quantity and quality of the work presented and the educational offerings were phenomenal. We were far and away the most productive department at the ASA. This type of result only comes about with strong teamwork. I want to express first my sincere appreciation to the faculty, CRNA’s, residents, fellows and anesthesia technicians that worked so hard to provide great care to our patients and allow their colleagues to represent us in Chicago. Secondly, I want to thank the our surgical colleagues for supporting a reduction in schedule to allow us to have the kind of presence at the meeting that we were hoping for. Lastly, I would like tho thank all of you that presented abstracts, PBLD‘s, refresher courses and all manner of presentations in a way that showed the world the great talent that we have at Duke and the great things that are yet to come. It is really great to be part of such a great team and one that gives of themselves in so many ways. Our team for the ASA Run for the Warriors Event had the greatest participation and the greatest amount of money raised. This was accomplished in the pouring rain, just another indication of the spirit of our great team. The success of a team depends on The contributions of all it’s members. Thanks again to each of you for all you do to make our team a success.

subjects. Cognitive performance will be assessed using an auditory or visual N-back test that delivers a series of stimuli to the subject consisting of an auditory tone or a sequence of letters randomly displayed on a liquid crystal screen. To minimize learning effects, subjects will be pre-trained to a competence plateau using a software application to be developed for this project. This proposal also includes effort from Drs. Richard Moon, and Richard Vann.

Blue Wave Excellence at the ASA Congratulations to Drs. Anne Cherry, Raquel Bartz, Ping Fu, Claude Piantadosi and Hagir Suliman for being selected to present their abstract entitled “PGC-1 and the mitochondrial antioxidant response during sepsis” as one of 10 best in the Basic Science category. “I was completely humbled by the quality of the other nine abstracts chosen.” Cherry said.

2012 Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists Foundation Research Grant There are three types of grant categories that will be awarded in 2012: 1. SCA/IARS Starter Grant - $25,000 a year for two years 2. Roizen Anesthesia Research Foundation: New Investigator Grant - $50,000 a year for two years 3. SCA/IARS Mid-Career Grant - $50,000 a year for two years

New Departmental Research Grant Award John J. Freiberger, MD, MPH, Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology and Member of the Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Environmental Physiology received a 3-year $995,792 award from the Department of the Navy for his project entitled “Hypercapnia: Cognitive Effects and Monitoring”. Carbon dioxide (CO2) retention is an operational risk to the exercising diver. Elevated PCO2 can cause sudden and unexpected cognitive impairment as well as increase the risk of O2 toxicity. The effect of elevated PCO2 on a working diver at varying levels of narcosis is untested and the Navy has stated a need for an algorithm to compute “equivalent narcotic depth” on the basis of inspired breathing gas partial pressures. A system that can detect elevated inspired PCO2 as well as provide an estimate of arterial PCO2 with appropriate alarms during a working dive that would allow the diver to take corrective action. In order to meet the Navy’s request and need, this project will simulate the conditions of a working, helmet diver by using “head out” immersed
