Conference Information

Mission of SNACC
The mission of the Society for Neuroscience in Anesthesiology and Critical Care is to advance the art and science of the care of the neurologically impaired patient.

Statement of Need
The overall scientific program of the SNACC 42nd Annual Meeting addresses the specialty's practice gaps and underlying educational need in multiple areas, including development, design and conduct of a clinical research project, as well as anesthetic concerns in emergency situation and their relationship to neurosciences from the basic science perspective through clinical workshops. A workshop will address the current gap in the anesthesiologists' knowledge about intraoperative monitoring of the nervous system. There will also be lectures on the novel topic of application of genomics in neuroanesthesia and important updates on intraoperative catastrophes and anesthesia in the neurointerventional suite.

This aggregate reflects the diversity of the specialty and the needs and interests of the general and sub-specialist anesthesiologist's practice. The moderated posters will reflect experimental and clinical neuroscience.
