Dr. Warren Zapol to Give Severinghaus Lecture

Dr. Warren Zapol

Dr. Warren M. Zapol has been chosen to give the 2010 John W. Severinghaus Lecture on Translational Science at the Annual Meeting of the American Society of Anesthesiologists in San Diego, CA. Dr. John Severinghaus, of the University of California, San Francisco, is best known for inventing the CO2 electrode used to commonly measure PaCO2.

Dr. Zapol will present his lecture, entitled "Life at the Frontier," on Tuesday, October 19 from 11:30 a.m. - 12:20 p.m. at the San Diego Convention Center (Upper Ballroom 20 A-C). The lecture will focus on the importance of teamwork in three of Dr. Zapol's major research foci: ECMO, ARDS and Weddell Seal studies in Antarctica, and Inhaled Nitric Oxide (INO). Dr. Zapol is the emeritus Anesthetist-in-Chief at Massachusetts General Hospital and the Reginald Jenney Professor of Anaesthesia at Harvard Medical School.

"I am truly honored to give such an important lecture on translational clinical research. Moving a science breakthrough from the bench to the ICU can help save patients' lives and is the central focus of my work," Dr. Zapol said.
