2019 SOAP Annual Meeting Host

On behalf of the SOAP Board of Directors and the 2019 Annual Meeting Planning Committee, we are delighted to invite you to the Society for Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology (SOAP) 51st Annual Meeting at the J.W. Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in sunny Phoenix, Arizona (May 1-5, 2019).

Educational Program:

This meeting is dedicated to Improving Maternal Outcomes: High Impact Strategies for Change, bringing you the latest techniques, guidelines and research.

Our pre-meeting workshops offer great opportunities for skill building for any level of training. Hands on workshops feature a wide array of ultrasound applications, professional development in leadership, and team training! Dr. Carolyn Weiniger will deliver the annual, highly anticipated “Gerard W. Ostheimer – What’s New in Obstetric Anesthesia?” lecture and Dr. Jose Carvalho will be giving the always engaging Fred Hehre Lecture. Emerging research will be highlighted in our Gertie Marx Research Competition, Best Paper Session and oral poster presentations. New this year, we present several multi-disciplinary panels to discuss the coordination of care for some of the sickest patients. We will have a special guest appearance by Stephanie Arnold, bestselling author of the book “37 Seconds” about her personal experience with a near fatal amniotic fluid embolism.

For those looking for brief, clinically focused, refresher lectures, join us Saturday, May 4th for the Clinical Track. These lectures feature 25-minute overviews of how to treat pregnant patients with Maternal Hemorrhage, Substance Use Disorders, Postdural Puncture Headache and Controversial Topics with Emerging Data.

Trainees can take advantage of our “Find a Mentor” program where residents can pair with more senior SOAP members to learn more about our wonderful specialty.

Lunch time offers several exciting options this year. Sign up for one of our Lunch and Learn sessions, where you can have a meal while engaging in case-based learning. If you are interested in networking with SOAP Board members and colleagues, sign up for the Lunch Around in the Stonegrill. Space is limited in these and the other organized lunch options, so be sure to sign up.

Recreational Offerings:

There will be plenty of time to enjoy the luxurious amenities of the J.W. Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort and Spa during our “free” (unscheduled) Friday afternoon and between sessions. There is something for everyone in the family! The hotel features five pools, including a lazy river and waterslide with food and drinks available within steps. Golf enthusiasts will enjoy the Wildfire Golf Club with its two professional golf courses (Palmer Signature Course and the Faldo Championship) and mountain views. Be sure to register for our Friday afternoon golf outing!

Visit the 28,000 square foot Revive Spa which boasts 41 treatment rooms, a private outdoor bistro and sanctuary pool area with a backdrop of the majestic mountains of the Sonora Desert. A state-of-the-art fitness center hosts classes in cycling, yoga, strength training and Tai Chi that will help you stay balanced and energized during your stay. Enjoy outdoor tennis courts, jogging, fitness trails and bike rentals or experience Pickleball, a sport that combines badminton, tennis and table tennis. In addition, the property has a JW Kids Camp daily that offers arts and crafts, desert adventures, sports and trivia for your little ones.

Explore local attractions in nearby Scottsdale or Cave Creek, where you can find western style goods with great dining options. The Desert Ridge Marketplace is also within walking distance from the hotel. Take some time to visit the amazing Musical Instruments Museum (MIM), which houses North America’s largest collection of musical instruments just five minutes from the hotel.

Of course, don’t miss our Opening Reception at the J.W. Marriott Ballroom Lawn on Wednesday, May 1st (admission is included in the registration fees). Then join friends again on the evening of Saturday, May 4th at the local eatery High and Rye for a more relaxed and casual banquet featuring upscale comfort food, craft cocktails, beers and dancing with a DJ.

Come for the meeting, but save time to enjoy Phoenix at its best! We look forward to welcoming you to the 51st Annual Meeting – one you won’t want to miss!

SESSION DESCRIPTIONS 

Best Case Reports – You Did What?

This will be a presentation of 10 of the most highly ranked abstracts as determined by the SOAP Education Committee scoring process. It will be representative of a wide range of topics from various institutions. There will be author and audience participation..

Best Paper Session

Presentation of obstetric anesthesia research judged by peers as the best quality research currently taking place, moderated by Dr. Jill Mhyre and Dr. Arvind Palanisamy. A question and answer period will be included. This is a judged competition.

Faculty Case Report Posters

This Sunday session will feature some of the most challenging and captivating case presentations of difficult clinical situations. You are sure to learn as our presenters describe how they approached the care of these unique parturients.

Fred Hehre Lecture: Dogmas in Obstetric Anesthesia: The Balance Between Evidence, Common Sense, Habit and Fear

Some practices in Obstetric Anesthesia lack sufficient evidence to support them. They are based on a mix of insufficient evidence (or lack thereof), common sense, habit and fear. Some of them, while meant to preserve patient safety, may unnecessarily prevent ideal patient care. The identification of such practices and a pragmatic discussion of their roots and assessment of their risk/benefit may offer opportunities to revisit them and eventually promote changes that may benefit patients.

Gerard W. Ostheimer Lecture – What’s New in Obstetric Anesthesia?

Always a highlight of the meeting, the Gerard W. Ostheimer lecture is a review of important, relevant, and/or practicechanging literature related to obstetric anesthesia, obstetrics, perinatology, and allied medical disciplines that was published in calendar year 2018. This year’s Ostheimer lecturer will be Dr. Carolyn Weiniger. This presentation will bring you up to date on the latest evidence-based advances in the anesthetic management of pregnant women.

Gertie Marx Research Competition

In memory of Gertie Marx, this session is a presentation of obstetric anesthesia research judged by peers as the best quality research done by medical students, residents, and fellows. This is a judged competition, moderated by Dr. Philip Hess.

Interdisciplinary Panel – Cardiac Disease

In the care of pregnant women with cardiac disease, the importance of seamless multidisciplinary management cannot be overemphasized. This highly interactive and entertaining panel of experts in cardiac disease in pregnancy will share the perspectives of the cardiologist, the maternal fetal medicine specialist and the cardiovascular and obstetric anesthesiologist as we work through the challenges of caring for pregnant women with cardiac disease.

It’s All in Her Head: Approaches to the Anesthetic Management of Pregnant Women with Intracranial Disease

This multidisciplinary panel will utilize a case-based approach to discuss intracranial disease in the parturient. Panelists will discuss how the physiologic changes of intracranial disease interact with pregnancy with specific considerations for anesthetic planning for both obstetric and neurologic care.

Oral Presentations

Oral presentations of high quality peer-reviewed scientific research related to obstetric anesthesia will be presented, followed by a question and answer session.

Panel – The Role of Truncal Blocks to Optimize Cesarean Delivery Analgesia

A multi-modal approach to treat pain and reduce opioid use following cesarean delivery is important. The session will describe and outline truncal blocks that could be utilized to provide analgesia in the cesarean setting. Terminology, anatomy, indications and limitations of truncal blocks, as well as the evidence for improved cesarean delivery analgesia with transversus abdominis plane and quadratus lumborum blocks will be discussed.

Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (SMFM) – What’s New in Obstetrics?

Maternal mortality is on the rise, and sepsis remains a major contributor. The pregnant patient poses many challenges that can be managed with a better understanding of the physiologic changes seen in both the mother and the feto-materal interface. We will discuss how pregnancy impacts the diagnosis and management of sepsis and a step-wise approach to treating the dyad of mother and fetus. We will also focus on potential issues and complications that can present with this particular population.

Special Lecture: Patient Perspectives

This session will highlight patient perspectives on the labor and delivery experience. A highlight will be the participation of Stephanie Arnold, the author of “37 Seconds”, her personal account of a near fatal amniotic fluid embolus. The impact of intrapartum and childhood trauma on the birth experience and beyond will be addressed with guidance on strategies for optimal care.

What’s New in Neonatology?

Dr. Alan Bedrick, professor and division chief of neonatology at the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Tucson, will present an update on recent developments in neonatal medicine.

Why Should You Care About Maternal Levels of Care?

This session will focus on two important initiatives aimed at improving obstetrical care in the US: the designation of ACOG levels of maternal care and of SOAP Centers of Excellence for Anesthesia Care of Obstetric Patients. Both efforts will be described in detail, with particular focus on elements of relevance to practicing obstetric anesthesiologist.


Clinical Track

Drug Shortages: What Can I Do For My Patients?

This drug shortage overview will address recent increases in shortages and potential alternative dosing strategies for obstetric patients. In addition, AHSP guidelines for mitigating impact of drug shortages and partnering with pharmacy will be reviewed.

Management of Neuraxial Labor Analgesia

This lecture will describe useful updates for management of neuraxial labor analgesia including various procedural techniques, maintenance of analgesia with infusion pumps, and options for labor analgesia after accidental dural puncture occurs.

My Two Cents – Controversial Topics

Robust differences exist in clinical analgesia management! Does a dural puncture (i.e., CSE or dural puncture epidural) add worthy value or unjustified risk to a labor epidural technique? Similarly, in a fully dilated parturient in pain, what should be given through the existing epidural catheter? Nothing? Local Anesthetic? Opioid? What’s the evidence?

Obstetric Hemorrhage

This lecture will summarize current clinical approaches to the prevention and management of postpartum hemorrhage.

Post Dural Puncture Headache

A review of post dural puncture headache risk factors, pathophysiology, and treatment as relates to the obstetric patient in a refresher course lecture format.

Substance Use Disorder

This lecture summarizes evolving knowledge regarding adverse maternal, fetal, and neonatal effects of opioid exposure during pregnancy, and current treatment options for opioid use disorder (OUD). Maternal and fetal implications of maternal opioid maintenance with methadone and buprenorphine are described. Finally, acute and chronic pain management strategies in opioidtolerant parturients are reviewed.

Lunch Lesson: Adjuncts in Postpartum Hemorrhage – How Do We Use Them?

(limited to 45 attendees)

Additional fee: $90

Saturday, May 4, 2019 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. (Lunch Included)

Speakers: Alexander Butwick, M.B.B.S., M.S., F.R.C.A.; Jennifer E. Hofer, M.D.

Despite increased knowledge of post-partum hemorrhage, the incidence is rising. The risk of severe PPH increases as the fibrinogen concentration decreases. Early recognition of hemorrhage through quantification of blood loss and laboratory testing can facilitate early therapeutic intervention to minimize maternal morbidity. Administration of utertonic agents and other pharmacologic adjuncts, in addition to adherence to a protocol-based approach to managing hemorrhage, can decrease blood product utilization and improve outcomes.

3rd Annual Chinese Symposium on Obstetric Anesthesia

Wednesday, May 1, 2019 • 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Course Director: Jie Zhou, M.D., M.S., M.B.A.

Once again, the Chinese American Symposium 2019 on Obstetric Anesthesia (CASOA 2019) will be hosted within the SOAP 2019 program. The program features the cultural and historical reviews of the labor analgesia and anesthesia practice in both China and the United States. The guest speakers will enlighten you with the what Chinese anesthesiologists are faced with a drastically changing society. The abandonment of the one-child policy gives hope to many families who wish to have a second child. However, it also challenges the anesthesiologists and obstetricians with surprising increased numbers of morbidly adherent placentas. Despite the remarkable improvement of its country’s economic development, medical disparity largely exists, given the extensive geographical area and cultural variance. Speakers will bring you up to date on the innovative approaches that Chinese anesthesiologists and obstetricians have achieved, as well as the new opportunities. Presentations will be in both English and Chinese to accommodate participants from different countries. CASOA 2019 will be held in the afternoon of Wednesday May 1, 2019 at the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort.

SOAP FITNESS ACTIVITIES

Boot Camp

Friday, May 3, 2019 • 6:15 a.m. – 7:15 a.m.

A challenging total body workout that combines the perfect heart pumping cardio and strength training. The format and the equipment will change each week for calorie burn, muscle building and to prevent boredom. All levels welcome.

Foam Rolling/Stretch

Saturday, May 4, 2019 • 6:45 a.m. – 7:45 a.m.

The Foam Rolling/Stretch class will consist of a combination of the two modalities to help increase the blood flow and increase myofascial release. This works by applying pressure and freeing up the fascia surrounding the muscles, thus eliminating scar tissue. It’s like priming the muscles for stretching.

ANNUAL MEETING IS 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 JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort and Spa AV
    department. The JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort and Spa also has a business
