The Week in PAAD, Saturday, March 27, 2021

Good morning…Spring has sprung in Philly, and, no matter who you root for, opening day is only 5 days away!

First and foremost, SHOUT-OUTS to PAAD’s newest Founding Member Subscribers: Drs. Robert Christensen, Daniela Damien, and Tara Hatat. THANK YOU! Your voluntary contributions to PAAD will be 100% donated to SPA’s Patient Safety, Education and Research Fund (PSERF) that supports junior investigators. I will be posting March proceeds and donations later this week.

ICYMI, here are the newsletters from the past week:

Medicolegal Monday March 22, 2021: What is off-label prescribing? Is it legal? Do we put ourselves at medicolegal risk for this practice?

Tuesday March 23, 2021: A death knell for liposomal bupivacaine?

Wednesday March 24, 2021: Does anesthesia affect babies’ brains? Where do we stand?

Throwback Thursday March 25, 2021: We welcome back distinguished Professor Myron Yaster. He discusses a classic paper on the origins of the way in which we dose neuromuscular blockers in neonates and small children.

TGI MH Friday, March 26, 2021: Should a free-standing surgicenter that ONLY uses IV anesthesia be required to stock dantrolene?
