NDA Seminar Tuesday 24th September 2019 10.30am
Dr Robert Sanders, University of Wisconsin
Have you ever wondered what is the impact our anaesthetic and perioperative care on our patients’ post-operative cognitive health? Should we be concerned? Should we be doing something different?
Please come and hear Dr Robert Sanders, from University of Wisconsin, Madison deliver his seminar on Perioperative Care and Cognition.
Recent studies have suggested that surgery has a small long-term effect on cognition and that perioperative ischemic brain injury may contribute. These studies, and their context, will be described and critiqued, providing the attendee with the pertinent insights from papers published in the BMJ and Lancet.
Dr Sanders qualified from Imperial College London (MB and PhD). He trained in anaesthesia at Imperial as well as doing postdoctoral research at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience. His work is funded by the National Institute of Health to conduct research into the mechanisms of delirium and dementia.
