The 3rd Annual Perioperative Medicine Summit took place at the main campus of the Cleveland Clinic, September 10-12, 2007 and was a remarkable success. Proceedings from the summit were published in a supplement of the Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine and are indexed by Pubmed.
The 4th Annual Perioperative Medicine Summit will take place in Miami Beach, Florida, February 5-8, 2009. The summit will be a collaborative project between University of Miami, Cleveland Clinic and Society for Perioperative Assessment and Quality Improvement.
I made the web site for summit earlier this year -- PeriopMedicine.org, and was on the abstract committee during the last 2 summits.
The new guidelines for perioperative evaluation for noncardiac surgery were published last week: ACC/AHA 2007 Guidelines on Perioperative Cardiovascular Evaluation and Care for Noncardiac Surgery: executive summary and full text.
