Date: November 20, 2020
Time: 1:00pm EDT – 2:00pm EDT
Presenter: Jonathan S. Jahr, MD, FASA
Description: Major changes have occurred in the treatment of pain with the use of multimodal therapies. This program will discuss the use of non-opioid analgesics for perioperative pain and the role of Cox-specific Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatories for acute pain management and the benefits on patient outcomes. Don’t miss this informative webinar lead by Dr. Jonathan Jahr, Anesthesiologist with 20+ years’ experience in the treatment of acute pain. Dr. Jahr is affiliated with Palo Alto Veterans Hospital and UCLA Medical Center.
- Understanding the impact of uncontrolled pain in surgical outcomes
- Treatment approaches and the role of NSAIDs in multimodal analgesia
- Mechanism of Action of NSAIDS
Presenter Bio: Dr. Jahr has studied acute pain and has co-edited a text, titled: The Essence of Analgesia and Analgesics (Cambridge U Press, 2011) and has authored over 25 papers, reviews and chapters on the topic of minimizing opioid use for pain and multimodal analgesia. Additionally, he has been at the forefront the conduct of definitive preclinical and clinical studies involving the application of hemoglobin based oxygen carriers in the treatment of hemorrhage and orthopedic surgery. He is the world’s foremost expert in the use of advanced diagnostic techniques in the study of the impact of volumizing fluids and HBOCs on coagulapathy, and related thrombin and platelet function. Throughout his extraordinary professional career, Dr. Jahr has been interested in the use of resuscitative fluids, blood transfusions, and intervention in the treatment of severe trauma, and the clinical efficacy of the use of blood substitutes, including perfluorocarbon technologies and hemoglobin based oxygen carriers to reduce the need for blood transfusions in clinical practice. He has been the principal investigator in over 30 clinical trials, has published over 150 studies, abstracts, review articles and case studies. He has served on the editorial review boards of Anesthesiology Review, American Journal of Anesthesiology, American Journal of Therapeutics, Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology and Therapeutics, Journal of Clinical Anesthesiology, Critical Care Medicine, American Journal of Physiology: Heart and Circulatory Physiology, Hematological, Anesthesiology, British Journal of Anesthesiology, and Vascular Pharmacology, and regularly lectures on issues regarding acute pain management, anesthesiology, oxygen therapeutics, and the management of blood products in surgical operations. Dr. Jahr received his undergraduate degree in Biology from Hamilton College, Clinton, NY Cum Laude, and with Honors, and his medical degree from New York Medical College, Valhalla, NY.
