Webinar: IARS, Sustainable Practices in Anaesthesia

Upcoming IARS Webinar: Understanding and Implementing Sustainable Practices in Anesthesiology for a Greener Future

Tuesday, June 11, 2024, 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm ET

The climate crisis is a health crisis, and delivery of healthcare is worsening the problem, putting more vulnerable populations at even higher risk. Anesthetic gas emissions account for a significant amount of OR-associated pollution. Evidence-based strategies exist to reduce the harm from anesthesia care, including avoidance of high-impact gasses, increased use of total intravenous anesthesia, and mitigation of nitrous oxide infrastructure leaks. Explore this important emerging topic with experts during this webinar! Register today!
