Perioperative Precision Medicine: Promise, Progress, and Pitfalls
The promise of perioperative precision medicine is the ability to make drug and dosage choices that are informed by each patient’s genomic data. While substantial progress towards understanding drug-genome interactions has been made, large gaps exist between current state and fulfillment of precision medicine’s potential. In this infographic, we describe the relevant perioperative genomic interactions, and demonstrate some of the current limitations for this approach.1,2
