Report from IARS meeting, May 4-9, 2017, Washington, DC
ISPCOP was well represented at this year’s IARS scientific annual meeting with multiple events either hosted by ISPCOP or presented by ISPCOP board members.
Dr. Naveen Eipe
Dr. Naveen Eipe from the University of Ottawa in Canada and the current ISPCOP VP for Education presented a refresher course lecture on the topic of predicting and managing "MODA": the morbid obesity difficult airway. Dr. Eipe created this novel acronym and suggested a stepwise approach to intubation and extubation in morbidly obese patients. This was a very well attended event, and his lecture was featured as a program highlight by the IARS.
Dr. Eipe also presented his findings from a study entitled: "Does Intra-Peritoneal Local Anesthetic Improve Outcomes in ERABS-A Double Blind RCT" in a moderated poster session.
