ResearchThe Department of Anesthesiology strongly encourages and supports research activities by faculty and residents. Several of our faculty are highly experienced at clinical and basic science research and are well represented in the published literature.

Projects involve a wide variety of subjects, including new drug clinical trials, control of hemodynamics during surgical procedures, evaluation of anesthetic techniques, assessment of postoperative nausea and vomiting risk and use of prophylactic antiemetics, improving acute pain control and recovery time, airway evaluation and maintenance, and evaluation of blood transfusion practices, among many others.

Residents are involved in independent or cooperative research projects. A resident research budget is funded by the department for this purpose. Our strong faculty commitment to research is a valuable asset to our clinical instruction program, as it exposes residents to the latest anesthetic agents, equipment and techniques, and establishes ongoing interest in staying at the forefront of scientific knowledge and clinical application.
