The 50th MEMA 2019, presents itself as a succinct, problem-oriented source of practical information, based on current best evidence and content-expert experience of leading clinicians in various topics including preoperative optimization, intraoperative monitoring and advances for safe anesthetic care, and intraoperative surgical techniques to address high-risk surgical patients and intraoperative high-risk surgeries. It also provides full spectrum of preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative management of high-risk surgical patients to ensure advanced postoperative intensive care and long term care and superior outcomes based on new techniques such as those that are minimally invasive and hybrid. Perioperative care guides the multidisciplinary team involved to optimize the chances for better informed decisions related to further selective referrals to medical specialists before surgery, further specialized preoperative investigations, and preoperative interventions initiatives that are intended to decrease perioperative risk and arrange for appropriate levels of postoperative care.
