    Department of Anesthesiology of Tulane University School of Medicine

    Please submit your abstract to Dr. Chuanyao Tong ( and Dr. Hong Liu

    abstracts must be written in English containing all authors’ name, presenting author’s contact

    information, and corresponding author’s contact information including telephone numbers and

    emails. All abstracts will be presented via POWERPOINT slides if accepted.

    Only the ICAA member sponsored abstract is eligible for the award winning competition. If you

    have various awards for the best abstracts and presentations. The accepted abstract that is not

    presented in ASA meeting, will be published in ICAA website or ICAA supported journal.

    The major theme of this year’s symposium will continue our legacy of our last year’s successful

    event on Translational Medicine: The Clinical aspect and clinical trials of translational medicine

    in Perioperative and Pain Medicine. We are honoured to have Dr. Daniel Sessler give the keynote

    presentation on clinical studies. Dr. Daniel Sessler is the current department chair of the outcome

    research at the Cleveland Clinic; He is one of the very few anesthesiologists published premium

    clinical studies in New England Journal of Medicine. His work on body temperature and

    perioperative outcome changed our practice permanently and maintenance of body temperature is

    one of key daily practices in perioperative medicine; also the recent POISE 2 studies on

    perioperative use of aspirin and clonidine.
