ANESTHESIOLOGY® 2017 was held last October in Boston and featured 28 Scientific and Educational Exhibits. The exhibits focused on many educational and clinical areas such as airway management, pain management, nerve blocks and the use of ultrasound techniques. Exhibits provided enhanced educational methods through the use of computer-based learning, advanced communication technology, and videos and simulators. Administrative exhibits provided information on technology and anesthesia, anesthesia for trauma and pharmacology in anesthesia. The exhibits were evaluated by the members of the Committee on Scientific and Educational Exhibits on their originality, clinical relevance, scientific merit and visual impact. Twenty-eight outstanding exhibits were presented at the meeting, with three exhibits receiving top awards.
