Academic Research Evening 2019
James P. Dilger, PhD
Our annual Peter Glass Academic Research Evening was held on May 14 in the Wang Center. Dr. Evan Kharasch was the Keynote Speaker. Dr. Kharasch is Professor of Anesthesiology at Duke University School of Medicine. He also serves as Vice-Chair for Innovation in the department and as Director of Research Entrepreneurship for the School of Medicine. He is the Editor-in-Chief of Anesthesiology. Dr. Kharasch's topic, "Perioperative Opioids, Public Health and Anesthesiology" was both timely and informative. He explored the causes of the opioid epidemic and stressed the need for a balance in meeting the needs of pain patients and avoiding situations that could lead to addiction. Challenging!
The program began with two moderated poster sessions; one for Basic Science and the other for Clinical Research.

The "Evening" would not have been possible without the untiring planning, coordinating and orchestrating efforts of Christine Fogarty! She, single handedly, managed every aspect of the event. Many, many thanks to her! ShellyAnn Noriega helped Christine at the registration table.

Sevo vs Des! You may have seen the recent article in the popular press about an anesthesiologist in Oregon who is taking a professional stand on his choice of volatile anesthetic. The relative global warming potential of anesthetic gases has been known since 2010: isoflurane is twice as harmful as sevoflurane but desflurane is over 25 times as harmful. In 2012, this was reinforced and extended to nitrous oxide. Dr. Brian Chesebro took this finding seriously and adjusted his practice accordingly. Then, he got his colleagues to do the same. The execs of his hospital group are not complaining about the half mil they save per year due to limiting the use of desflurane. The counterargument is that the climate impact of anesthetic gases is a tiny fraction compared to the burning of fossil fuels. But Chesebro is undaunted. His view is that every little bit helps!
What do you think? I'll include interesting and thoughtful email responses in next month's column.
