Medtronic and The Academy: committed with elevating the standard of medical practice in Latin America.

Through a concerted effort between the ASI and Medtronic, over 30 anesthesiologists from all over the continent have gathered at the Academy to immerse themselves into the daily practice of one of the most successful bariatric tourism destinations in the world.
Over two days, attendees participated in lectures, roundtable discussions and workshops delivered by industry experts on topics ranging from advanced airway devices, difficult airway assessment and management, emergency procedures, neurological monitoring and more.
“It is an excellent opportunity for anesthesiologists who are participating in the booming sector of bariatric surgery, as patients living with excess weight and obesity have key differences in their metabolism and physiology that can pose a challenge to those who are unacquainted” – said Dr. Hector Acosta, Chair of Anesthesia at the International Institute of Metabolic Medicine.
