IAA is affiliated with multiple research and development programs, allowing team members to work on cutting edge anesthesia research.
Research Opportunity Overview
In our case studies publications, we implement anesthetic strategies from cutting-edge published literature on a multiple-patient basis to help improve patient care.
A great example of this is our recent case series on combined PECS/quadratus lumborum blocks for analgesia for Breast DIEP Flap Reconstruction [Anesthesiology 2021 Annual Meeting, E. Harmon et. al].
Research trainees interested in authoring case series studies should have a strong foundation in clinical anesthesia.
After developing a hypothesis, collaborating with our surgical colleagues, and acquiring clearance from our institutional review board, research trainees will work closely with senior anesthesia faculty in the process of reviewing electronic medical records and writing a publication-quality manuscript with accompanying photography and diagrams.
