ACS 2021

Anaesthesia and the Brain

 

Brainstorming solutions for perioperative neurologic injury

 

 

Keynote Speakers

Professor Kristin EngelhardProfessor, University Medical Center of Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany

Professor Kristin Engelhard is vice-chair of the Department of Anaesthesia at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz German. She is a member and former leader of many national and international societies like the Neuroaenesthesia Research Group of the German Society of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine (DGAI) or the Society of Neuroscience in Anesthesiology and Critical Care (SNACC). Her scientific interest lies within neuromonitoring and neuroprotection after brain injury. She is editor of the Oxford Textbook of Neuroscience and Anaesthesiology and co-editor/author of Miller`s Anesthesia textbook.

Associate Professor Lis EveredPrincipal Research Fellow, University of Melbourne and Head of Research, St Vincent's Hospital

AP Lis Evered has a BSc, MBiostat and PhD in neuroscience. Lis is AP of Neuroscience at Weill Cornell Medicine, NY; Scientific Head of Research in the Department of Anaesthesia and Acute Pain Medicine, St Vincent’s Hospital, Melbourne and AP, University of Melbourne. She is Associate Editor for BJA and Senior Editor for Anesthesia & Analgesia, and a reviewer for many peer-reviewed journals. She is the recipient of more than $8M in competitive funding. Lis is Chair of the International nomenclature consensus working party which has revised postoperative cognitive disorders from research to clinical guidelines and is currently finalising research guidelines. Her main area of research interest is identifying the impact of surgery and anaesthesia on the cognitive trajectory of older individuals.

Professor Kate LeslieProfessor, Royal Melbourne Hospital

Professor Kate Leslie is head of research in the Department of Anaesthesia and Pain Management, Royal Melbourne Hospital, and honorary professorial fellow at the University of Melbourne and Monash University, Australia. She is a member of the ANZCA Clinical Trials Network and is a chief investigator of the Balanced, RELIEF, PADDI, ROCKET and Chewy studies. She sits on the editorial boards of Anesthesia and Analgesia, Anesthesiology and the BJA, and is an editor of Miller’s Anesthesia textbook.

ABOUT ACS 2021

Protecting the brain from perioperative neurologic injury is a goal for all anaesthetists. Perioperative insults around the time of surgery can result in long-term neurological complications, especially in vulnerable populations such as the young and old.

The 2021 Auckland City Symposium will provide an exciting update on anaesthesia and the brain. An international, multi-disciplinary panel including experts Professor Kristin Engelhard and Associate Professor Lis Evered will cover important topics ranging from traumatic brain injury, the Perioperative Brain Health Initiative, paediatric neurotoxicity as well as updates on the most recent scientific evidence for depth of anaesthesia, management of acute stroke and novel uses of anaesthetic agents.

Due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, our international speakers will present by video-link and we will offer an online option for registration. In the event of a lockdown we plan to switch to a fully virtual meeting. 

Join us for an inspirational day of conversation and networking!
