Newswise — New discoveries in anesthesiology and pain management are being made every day, and ANESTHESIOLOGY® 2022 (Oct. 21-25) is the best place to be in-the-know about these important findings.

Register today (details below) to ensure your press credentials and access to some of the most cutting-edge research being presented, including:

  • Adults who use cannabis have more pain after surgery than those who don’t use cannabis.
  • Regularly using cholesterol-lowering statin medications may reduce the risk of death and severity of COVID-19 in hospitalized patients, suggesting the common medications may be an additional treatment for the disease.
  • Systemic racism may play a role in the much higher maternal mortality rate among Black women, suggests a study that found income level, insurance and other social determinants of health don’t fully explain the difference in death rates.
  • Health care disparities found in patients who receive regional anesthesia, a type of anesthesia aimed at relieving pain for surgeries.
