STA 2013 President's Welcome
John B. Pawlowski, MD, PhD
Welcome to the Society for Technology in Anesthesia. We are celebrating our 24th year and remain dedicated to the identification, analysis, and clinical application of technologies to advance the field of anesthesia and to improve the lives of our patients. Current topics of interest for our members include sensor technologies to prevent respiratory arrests, non-invasive alternatives to current monitors, hemodynamic monitors to provide doctors with early warning of problems, data analysis to quantify best clinical practices, drug infusion systems to improve patient sedation and lessen side effects, non-invasive alternatives to current monitors, and anesthetic nanotechnology. We welcome both clinicians and members of allied medical technology industries. Feel free to explore our webpage and to contact us directly. I am sure that you will find the STA to be a comfortable collection of innovators, tinkerers, the curious and the adventurous.
The mission of the Society for Technology in Anesthesia is to improve the quality of patient care by innovation in the use of technology and its application. The Society promotes education and research, collaborates with local, national, and international organizations, sponsors meetings and exhibitions, awards grants, and recognizes achievement.
Thank you to the 2013 Annual Meeting Exhibitors!
