​Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems in Anesthesia, Critical Care, Pain and Perioperative Medicine

Anesthesia & Analgesia thematic issue for May 2020

Anesthesiologists, surgeons, critical care physicians and perioperative medicine providers work in one of the most data-rich clinical environments. Each day thousands of terabytes of data are recorded around the world in the acute care setting. From low resolution clinical data obtained from the electronic health record and administrative databases, to high-fidelity physiologic waveforms and genomic data, the breadth of information accessible to physicians and healthcare providers in the acute care setting seems almost unlimited.

Developments in data analytics and specifically the recent boom of artificial intelligence and machine learning have allowed clinicians and computer scientists to work together to leverage this wealth of information. In the near future, artificial intelligence solutions, predictive and prescriptive analytics, computation, and autonomous systems will work side-by-side with anesthesiologists and critical care physicians to help them move toward truly precise medicine.

Anesthesia & Analgesia is calling for papers focused on “Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems in Anesthesia, Critical Care, Pain and Perioperative Medicine” for a thematic issue to be guest edited by Dr. Maxime Cannesson. We invite authors to submit research manuscripts, review articles, technical communications, and Open Minds covering artificial intelligence, autonomous systems, digital health, telemedicine, wearable, machine learning techniques and other topics related to data sciences.

Authors can find the specific requirements for each manuscript type in the Journal’s current Instructions for Authors at www.editorialmanager.com/aa.

The deadline for submission is September 15th, 2019 with an anticipated date of final decision on January 1st, 2020 and in print publication for the May 2020 issue of the journal.

Interested authors can contact Dr. Maxime Cannesson at MCannesson@mednet.ucla.edu for additional information or to discuss specific topic proposals for the “Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems in Anesthesia, Critical Care, Pain and Perioperative Medicine” thematic issue.
