New Departmental Research Grant Award Dr. Ashraf Habib of the Women’s Anesthesia and Critical Care Medicine Division received a twoyear $100,000 Covidien Research Award from the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation (APSF) entitled “Computerized Surveillance of Opioid Related Adverse Drug Events in the Perioperative Period”. Opioids remain the mainstay of pain relief after surgery. However their use can be associated with increased sedation, slowing of breathing, and might lead to harm and even death. This project aims to identify risk factors for the occurrence of such adverse events and implement strategies to reduce their occurrence.

20th Annual Merel H. Harmel Lecture Looking Backward: A Journey to Greatness Merel H. Harmel, MD

Professor Emeritus of Anesthesiology Chairman, 1971-1983

Wednesday, November 18, 2009 7:30 am, Duke North, Room 2002 This is a joint Grand Rounds with the Department of Surgery.

Professor Emeritus, Dr. Merel Harmel

is the former founding chair of the Department of Anesthesiology at Duke University Medical Center. Dr. Harmel was the anesthetist for the first BlalockTaussig shunt, which is commonly known as the “Blue Baby Operation,� performed at Johns Hopkins in 1946. Formerly chair at Downstate Medical Center and the University of Chicago, Dr. Harmel came to Duke when the Medical School decided to follow a national trend, creating an independent Department of Anesthesiology. During his tenure at Duke he founded clinical and laboratory research programs

and was a huge advocate of resident and medical student training. He established a collaborative relationship with the Department of Surgery, particularly in cardiac surgery and research. Dr. Harmel pioneered the development of the first computerized vital-signs monitoring system, called Duke Automatic Monitoring Equipment which serves as the precedent for sophisticated intraoperative informatic systems used around the world today. Dr. Harmel and his wife, Dr. Ernestine FriedlHarmel, have been avid supporters of the Duke DREAM Campaign since its inception in 2007, and both currently serve as campaign advisors.
