Description: New frontiers in transplantation are pushing the boundaries with higher risk grafts and higher risk recipients. Inevitably, a larger proportion of solid organ transplant patients will require ICU-level care preoperatively or postoperatively. In this session, we discuss models of care and issues in creating a perioperative home for these transplant patients in the ICU, and how to build systems that prepare and recover patients from transplants in a safe, effective, and efficient way.

Description: Anesthesia intensivists are now providing critical care in all parts of the hub-and-spoke models, including community ICUs and smaller hospitals that refer to larger academic centers. Increasing demand for intensivists from both a clinical care and administrative standpoint means that we are extending past our traditional footprint to successfully provide intensive care services across a variety of settings. This panel will discuss the factors that have led to a greater demand for anesthesia critical care physicians outside large medical centers, operationalizing an expansion of services and the successful running of community ICUs by anesthesia intensivists.
