Research Contributions

Current and former SAA physicians have contributed greatly to the advancement of science and clinical knowledge in the field of anesthesiology, both through research on the underlying mechanisms of anesthesia and on the clinical efficacy and utility of various anesthetic techniques.

Members of SAA have published hundreds of research papers in many of the most prestigious international medical journals, including Anesthesiology, Anesthesia and Analgesia, Anesthesiology Review, British Journal of Anesthesia, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia, Anesthesiology News, Critical Care Medicine, Pain Digest, Seminars in Anesthesia, the Journal of Pediatrics, the Journal of Neurosurgery, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), American Heart Journal, Annals of Emergency Medicine, Journal of Urology, and the Journal of Physiology as well as many others.

Members of SAA have authored chapters in the textbooks used to educate physicians, including portions of Outpatient Anesthesia, Transfusion, Griffith’s Five-Minute Clinical Consult, Clinical Management of the Airway, Opioids in Anesthesia, Anesthesiology: Pearls of Wisdom, Decision Making in Anesthesia, Manual of Obstetric Anesthesia, and Resuscitation.

SAA physicians have also presented their research and/or lectured at numerous national and international conferences, including the Annual Meeting of the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the International Anesthesia Research Society, the World Congress of Anesthesia, the World Congress of Pain, the Canadian Anesthetists’ Society, the Postgraduate Assembly in Anesthesiology, the Society for Technology in Anesthesia, the Asian-Australasian Congress of Anesthesiologists, the Society of Obstetric Anesthesiology and Perinatology, the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation, the Western Association of Clinical Researchers, the Medical Monitoring Technology Annual Meeting, the Annual Meeting of Society of Toxicology, the Perioperative Blood Conservation Symposium, the Society for Neuroscience Annual Meeting, the American College of Gastroenterology and the Annual Scientific Session of the American Heart Association.

Members of SAA have served on the teaching staff at many prestigious institutions, including Yale University School of Medicine, Northwestern University, Harvard Medical School, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Baylor College of Medicine, Walter Reed Army Medical Center, US Naval Hospital San Diego, and the University of Pittsburgh, the University of California at San Diego, University of Florida, the University of Maryland, the University of Iowa and the University of Arizona.
