HSS presents new research at 2018 ASRA Annual Meeting
At this year's American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine (ASRA) annual meeting, HSS presented new research related to anesthesiology and orthopedic surgery.
Multimodal Pain Relief Strategies May Improve Outcomes in Sleep Apnea Patients
- Anesthesiologist Stavros Memtsoudis, MD, PhD, presented research on the positive impact of multimodal analgesia and how it could lead to lower opioid consumption and complications in patients with sleep apnea undergoing orthopedic surgery.
Multimodal Analgesia Techniques Benefit Shoulder Replacement Patients
- Jacques YaDeau, MD, PhD, director of research within the Department of Anesthesiology, Critical Care & Pain Management, ran a study on pain outcomes in patients who underwent total shoulder replacements using a multimodal approach to pain relief.
Can Watching Movies Reduce Anxiety During Awake Surgery?
- Anesthesiologist Stavros Memtsoudis, MD, PhD, concluded that performing ambulatory knee surgery with regional anesthesia is feasible with and without audiovisual devices.
Adding Peripheral Nerve Blocks to Injections Improves Knee Replacement Care
- Anesthesiologists Jonathan C. Beathe, MD, and David H. Kim, MD, found that adding peripheral nerve blocks to periarticular injections is linked to less post-operative pain and lower opioid consumption for those with a total knee replacement.
