Big Data Studies: How to Design, Conduct and Read Them


Room 243 | SPE07
Saturday October 22 | 1:15 to 3:15 p.m.

Moderator: Sachin Kheterpal, MD, MBA, Editor, Anesthesiology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI

Research, quality improvement, clinical guideline, and policy makings efforts based upon “big data” are increasingly common in perioperative medicine. All anesthesiologists must be facile in understanding and communicating the strengths and weaknesses of these databases and projects. This session will arm every anesthesiologist with the skills necessary to consume or create the in vogue and ubiquitous “big data” study with a discerning eye.

Speakers:
Progress and missteps in perioperative medicine Big Data research
Sachin Kheterpal, MD, MBA, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI

Choosing wisely in Big Data analysis: risk adjustment, prediction, or causation
Elizabeth L. Whitlock, MD, MA, MSc, University of California, San Francisco, CA

High-stakes epidemiology: Using Big Data to estimate causal effects
Brian T. Bateman, MD, Stanford University School of Medicine, CA

Exciting developments in Big Data analysis methods
Timothy T. Houle, PhD, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA


Initial Results of Major Clinical Trials


Room 243 | SPE09
Saturday October 22 | 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.

Moderators: Evan D. Kharasch, MD, PhD, Editor-in-Chief, Anesthesiology, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, NC; Deborah J. Culley, MD, Executive Editor, Anesthesiology, University of Pennsylvania, Perelman School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA

Anesthesiology is sponsoring its seventh Major Clinical Trials Session, a high-profile, large-audience forum for initial presentations of major randomized clinical trial results. It is designed for substantial trials, usually randomized and blinded, with a clinically important primary outcome.




31st Journal Symposium: Delirium


Room 243 | SPE25
Sunday October 23 | 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Moderators: Deborah J. Culley, MD, Executive Editor, Anesthesiology, University of Pennsylvania, Perelman School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA; Andrew Davidson, MBBS, MD, Executive Editor, Anesthesiology, Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne, Australia

Post-operative delirium affects a substantial portion of surgical patients and is associated with both short- and long-term complications and morbidity. The science behind delirium is rapidly evolving with better diagnostic tools, a greater understanding of the neurobiology, and greater understanding of the possible etiology. The Symposium will feature both plenary lectures by experts in the field and presentations of eight featured top abstracts selected for their relevance to the mechanism and biology of postoperative delirium in both pediatric and geriatric patients. You can find full text summaries of the top abstracts here.



Best of Abstracts: Clinical Science and Basic Science


Anesthesiology is sponsoring two Best Abstract sessions: one in basic science and another in clinical science. The abstracts were chosen by a panel of editors who examined the highest scoring abstracts from the ASA subcommittees, choosing those with important scientific and clinical application and novelty.

Discussion of four recently published clinical trial studies, presented by one of the authors and counterpointed by a friendly critique by another speaker. Speakers will comment on the methods and their implementation, providing education on those methods and relevant aspects of their implementation and results interpretation in the process. This will be followed by a response from the author. Details on included clinical trials and speakers is available here.
