Welcome to the 2015 Annual Meeting at The Broadmoor, in Colorado Springs, Colorado

On behalf of the SOAP Board of Directors and the SOAP 2015 Annual Meeting Program Committee we are excited to welcome you to scenic Colorado for the 47th SOAP Annual Meeting at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colorado, May 13-17, 2015.

Located on more than 3000 lush acres under the shadow of Cheyenne Mountain, The Broadmoor is the longest-running consecutive winner of both the AAA Five-Diamond and Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star awards and was recently named Golf Magazine’s #1 Golf Resort in North America. Built in the early 20th century as the “Grand Dame of the Rockies”, The Broadmoor offers guests a unique way to experience the beauty of Colorado. From a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star rated spa as well as 19 restaurants, cafes, and lounges, your friends and family can enjoy 54 holes of championship golf, six tennis courts, indoor and outdoor pools, distinctive retail shops, and activities for all ages and interests. In addition, Colorado Springs is home to the Air Force Academy and the Olympic Training Center, as well as Pike’s Peak!

The Colorado Springs Airport is serviced by major airlines with nonstop flights from more than 12 major U.S. cities including Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C.. The Broadmoor is a 15-minute drive from the Colorado Springs Airport. For those traveling to Colorado Springs via Denver, Colorado Springs is 75 minutes south of Denver International Airport, which is a U.S. hub for United Airlines, a major focus city for Southwest Airlines, and provides non-stop service to destinations throughout North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia. Direct shuttle service to The Broadmoor is available from both the Colorado Springs Airport and the Denver International Airport.

The theme of the 47th Annual Meeting is “The New Role of Education in Obstetric Anesthesia - Educating the Clinician, Trainees and the Public”. Along with oral presentations of original research, there will be posters of interesting and challenging cases, Breakfast with the Experts, a session reviewing the Best Cases of the Year, as well as panels discussing education, patient management, and research. This is a meeting for anesthesiologists, obstetricians, obstetric medicine specialists, maternal-fetal medicine specialists, neonatologists, and members of related allied health specialties including fellows, residents, and medical students with an interest in the care of the pregnant patient. This is a rare opportunity where individuals can discuss medical problems unique to the pregnant patient as well as gain knowledge that will reinforce past learning as well as disseminate new concepts, practices, and skills to promote excellence in clinical care, research, and education. Free Wi-Fi will be available to all meeting participants in the meeting space.

Pre-meeting workshops will be held on Wednesday, May 13, 2015 including a MOCA® Part IV Course that will be available for participants and held at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver. Overnight accommodations will be available adjacent to the Anschutz Medical Campus (AMC) prior to the workshop at SpringHill Suites. Direct charter bus service to Colorado Springs will be available from the AMC to Colorado Springs. Given the popularity of the ultrasound workshops presented in previous years, we will continue to offer comprehensive workshops on the use of ultrasound for obstetric anesthesia and transthoracic echocardiography. In addition, there will be a faculty development workshop. All of these workshops will be held in Colorado Springs.

Favorite SOAP sessions will include the Gertie Marx Research Competition, The “What’s New” and Fred Hehre Lectures. Distinguished guest lecturers will include: Linda Barbour, M.D., M.S.P.H., Professor of Medicine and Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Colorado School of Medicine (What’s New in Obstetric Medicine); Timothy M. Crombleholme, M.D., FACS, FAAP, Professor of Surgery, University of Colorado School of Medicine and The Ponzio Family Chair for the Surgeon-in-Chief at Children’s Hospital Colorado (What’s New in Fetal Surgery); Elliot Main, M.D., Medical Director of the California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative (Maternal Safety: SMFM Bundles); Fred Hafferty, Ph.D., Professor of Medical Education, Associate Director Program in Professionalism and Ethics, Mayo Clinic (Gertie Marx/FAER Education Lecture).

The SOAP Welcome Reception will be held outdoors at The Broadmoor on the Lakeside Terrace. With more than 300 days of sunshine per year and temperatures in the 70’s, the reception will be an opportunity for you to reunite with friends and mingle with colleagues. Please attend the complimentary early morning yoga sessions at the hotel, as you may find that this is an activity that will energize you to fully experience your day! A 5K Walk/Run will be a fun event for all and an opportunity to exercise and meet others! Other activities will include an optional Foothills Jeep Tour, Olympic Training Center Tour, Garden of the Gods Tour and an Air Force Academy Tour. Instead of the traditional SOAP banquet, there will be a “strolling” dinner Friday evening in the Lake Terrace Dining Room at The Broadmoor. Award-winning Colorado wines, beers, and sodas will be featured.

The meeting promises to be as intellectually stimulating as The Broadmoor is memorable. Space will be limited for this event so be sure to register and make your reservations early!

Sincerely,

INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR TRIP

High Altitude Effects & Tips

High altitude has its benefits. Our bodies use more calories and burn more fat. But, for lowland travelers who are new to our area, altitude can produce some unusual high altitude effects such as dizziness, nausea and headaches. Colorado Springs climbs to an altitude of 6,035 feet. Manitou Springs, just five miles to the west of Colorado Springs, is 6,320 feet. Further west, the towns of Victor and Cripple Creek are over 9,500 feet. The summit of Pikes Peak towers above them all at 14,115 feet. Below you will find some helpful high altitude tips to help you acclimate to our elevation.

To enjoy your visit here in Colorado Springs, here are high altitude tips to keep in mind to give your body time to adjust to the altitude and prevent altitude sickness:

  • Stay below 7,000 feet the first day (the city of Colorado Springs is 6,035 feet above sea level.)
  • Give your body time to adjust (there’s lots to see and do at lower altitudes.)
  • Avoid strenuous exercise the first day.
  • Limit alcohol intake. Alcohol binds oxygen and water and robs your body of these two important nutrients.
  • Drink more water. The air is drier and your body will dehydrate much more quickly. The higher up you go, the more water you should drink.
  • Always travel with a companion. If someone begins to experience severe coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath or chest pain, get him or her to a lower altitude as quickly as possible.
  • The effects of some drugs such as tranquilizers can be greatly increased at higher altitudes. Be sure to check with your doctor first before exerting yourself at higher altitudes.
  • If you are baking during your visit, be sure to follow the high altitude instructions.
  • Get plenty of good rest and enjoy yourself!

Gratuities

At the guest’s discretion; no gratuities are required at the hotel; with the exception of a few restaurants that will require one with certain size parties.

THE SOAP 47TH ANNUAL MEETING WILL BE PAPERLESS

Printed documents will not be available at the meeting. Documents will be available on the website should you wish to print them beforehand or to download them to an iPad or other tablet device before the meeting.

Making a meeting paperless yields the benefit of considerably reducing the cost and the carbon footprint of the meeting. A paperless meeting also makes it easier for meeting participants to locate and store documents and allows for faster preparation and distribution of conference materials.

To facilitate the paperless meeting, meeting attendees are requested to follow these suggestions:

  • Meeting participants should bring their own computing devices – extra computers are not available for use during the meeting. Questions concerning rental of any computer equipment may be directed to The Broadmoor AV department. The Broadmoor also has a business center for printing documents.
  • Wireless internet is available in the meeting rooms, and is available in guest rooms. Power sources (power strips) will NOT be available in the meeting rooms. Please be sure your portable devices are fully charged before coming to the meeting, or print your documents in advance of the meeting.
  • Each meeting participant should include a current e-mail address when completing the meeting registration form in order to be able to receive correspondence about the meeting materials.

PROGRAM INFORMATION

Mission Statement
The Society for Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology (SOAP) was founded in 1968 to provide a forum for discussion of problems unique to the peripartum period. SOAP is comprised of anesthesiologists, obstetricians, pediatricians, and basic scientists who share an interest in the care of the pregnant patient and the newborn.

The mission of this Society is to improve the pregnancy-related outcomes of women and neonates through the support of obstetric anesthesiology research, the provision of education to its members, other providers, and pregnant women, and the promotion of excellence in clinical anesthetic care.

A membership in SOAP is an opportunity to meet people who share your interests, and to stimulate improvements in health care for pregnant patients.
