Wisconsin Society of Anesthesiologist 2013 Annual Meeting

Milwaukee, WI US
September 7, 2013 to September 8, 2013
The overall goal of this program is to provide an update on new developments in the field of anesthesia and perioperative medicine.  
The field of anesthesia and perioperative medicine is rapidly developing.  New drugs, new techniques and new devices promise increased patient safety and satisfaction, improved outcome and less invasiveness.  New studies question current paradigms.  And governing bodies demand new credentialing and licensure requirements.  Anesthesia providers and perioperative physicians are challenged to keep up-to-date in all of these areas.
By offering a wide variety of important topics this educational event aims to improve awareness of recent advances in multiple areas of perioperative medicine and encourages life-long learning.
