30th Annual Anesthesiology Journal Symposium
SARS-CoV-2 and COVID19: New Paradigms and Challenges for Anesthesiologists 

2021 American Society of Anesthesiologists Annual Meeting October 9-13, 2021, San Diego, CA

Jerrold H Levy, MD, FAHA, FCCM and Martin J London, MD, FASE

The CoronaVIrus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, with its explosive onset early in 2020, and its relentless march across the world with attendant morbidity and mortality, has forced anesthesiologists to adapt rapidly and uniquely to save lives and maintain critical surgical services.  The development of a vaccine and innovative management and therapeutic strategies has proceeded at “Warp Speed,” and as we move into our second year of the pandemic, predicting the future remains challenging. 

Our role as anesthesiologists has received widespread recognition for our expertise in airway management and critically ill patients both in the operating room and in the intensive care unit. We have learned much about the pathophysiology of COVID-19 and best practices for treating it, but new information on its physiologic and long-term consequences continues to emerge.  

Lectures will be followed by oral presentations of 10 abstracts selected for their relevance to the symposium topic. Anesthesiology invites research abstracts and full-length articles related to the theme of its Annual Journal Symposium at ANESTHESIOLOGY®2021: SARS-CoV-2 and COVID19: New Paradigms and Challenges for Anesthesiologists.

The top 10 abstracts will be presented orally during the live Symposium. All abstract submissions must meet deadlines and guidelines set by the American Society of Anesthesiologists. The authors of abstracts selected for presentation at the Symposium will be offered an opportunity to submit their full manuscripts to Anesthesiology for inclusion in an issue to be published in the spring of 2021. Submitting a paper does not require attending the ANESTHESIOLOGY 2021 meeting.

The Journal is inviting full-length article submissions related to the topic. Articles must meet Journal submission guidelines and be submitted via our electronic submission system.  Article submission deadline is August 1, 2021. ANESTHESIOLOGY®2021 Abstract submission deadline is April 5, 2021.
