In today's episode, we delve into the exciting realm of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in anesthesiology, uncovering its potential to revolutionize hospital systems and patient safety.
Segment 1: The Human Connection
Segment 2: AI in Anesthesiology - A Scoping Review
Segment 3: 6 Key Themes of AI in the Operating Room (OR)
2. Depth of Anesthesia Assessment: AI, alongside BIS (Bispectral Index Monitoring), assesses the depth of anesthesia.
3. Control of Anesthesia Delivery: AI automates the delivery of paralytics and predicts drug pharmacokinetics for precise titration.
4. Ultrasound Guidance: AI assists in identifying critical structures during ultrasound, such as arteries and ideal vertebral levels for epidural placement.
5. Pain Management: AI analyzes whole-brain MRI to understand patients' responses to pain stimuli, improving our understanding of pain perception.
6. OR Logistics: AI attempts to optimize OR scheduling, staffing, and team dynamics but faces challenges due to the complexity of the OR environment
Real-world data is essential for improving AI's accuracy in this domain.
Remember the words of Rodney Brooks, an Australian roboticist and entrepreneur: "Artificial intelligence is a tool, not a threat." AI's potential lies in its ability to support healthcare professionals and ultimately improve patient outcomes
