The opening ceremony was presided over by Prof. Yu Hai, Deputy Director of Anesthesia Surgery Center of West China Hospital of Sichuan University. On behalf of the organizing committee, Prof. Liu Jin, Director of Anesthesia Surgery Center of West China Hospital of Sichuan University, firstly expressed his gratitude to all the leaders and experts attended the conference. Prof. Liu noted that, China is in the transition from a “big anesthesia country” to a “strong anesthesia country”, and the recent years has seen rapid progress in anesthesiology which is also accelerating the transformation to perioperative medicine. New technologies such as artificial intelligence, big data and visualization technology have been widely used in the field of anesthesia & analgesia and critical care, and the progress of the times and technology has added new driving forces to the development of perioperative medicine. We are willing to work with our anesthesia colleagues at home and abroad to improve the perioperative management and relevant education and training efficiency by means of advanced modern information technology, so as to write a new chapter of anesthesia development together.

In her opening speech, Secretary General Zhang Mengfan of SCIMEA said that the specialty of anesthesia of West China Hospital is one of the largest of its kind in the world and the pacemaker in China. Under the leadership of Director Liu Jin, the specialty of anesthesia has achieved many successes in several fields such as clinical and scientific research. It is also under the leadership of Director Liu Jin that the Special Committee on Anesthesiology of SCIMEA has created various branded academic exchange activities, which are becoming increasingly influential in the field of anesthesiology and perioperative medicine at home and abroad. In the future, SCIMEA is willing to work with all medical peers to contribute to the early realization of the goal of a healthy Sichuan and a healthy China.

In his opening speech, Vice President Huang Jin of West China Hospital of Sichuan University said that the specialty of anesthesia of West China Hospital is one of the most representative and prominent specialties of the hospital, which has been ranked No. 1 in the Comprehensive List of Best Specialties in China’s Hospitals for ten consecutive years. Nowadays, the high quality development of a hospital is inseparable from the anesthesia as the guarantee foundation, and at the same time, the anesthesia is undergoing profound changes, with new ideas and new technologies emerging, so that we need to stand in a higher perspective, embrace the changes, promote anesthesia and perioperative medicine to leap to the world leading level with a broader vision, and then coordinate the future development of the specialty of anesthesia.

In the academic exchange session that followed the opening ceremony, firstly, Vice President Huang Jin introduced the Medical + Manufacturing Center currently under construction in West China Hospital with the theme of “Medical + Manufacturing Practice of Medical-Engineering Integration”. The center will advocate breaking down the barriers and overlapping & fusion between various disciplines to achieve the effect of 1+1>2. It will also built several platforms around the three core points of manufacturing, information and materials. With clinicians and engineering scientists as core talents, the center will carry out project research in the areas of high-end medical equipment, key core components, precision medicine, intelligent medical robots and advanced drugs. The integration between medicine and engineering will not only form products, but also provide a solid guarantee for clinical research.
Then, Director Liu Jin shared, in the lecture titled “The Direction of Current Construction of Anesthesia Discipline in China”, the future development directions of anesthesia discipline. He also explained how to deal with the relationship between medicine, teaching and research from three perspectives, i.e., patient demand, social demand and hospital development, and emphasized the importance of international exchange for discipline development.
In the end, Prof. Li Xi from West China Hospital of Sichuan University shared a presentation titled “Essentials of Randomized Controlled Study Design: Example of Anesthesia”, and at the same time, Dr. Paolo Pelosi, Director of Italian School of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care, was connected via live stream to discuss and share with experts and scholars on the "Current Status of Perioperative Mechanical Ventilation", which achieved practical exchange results.
2021 is the first year of the 14th Five-Year Plan period, and it is a brand new year to promote the Healthy China Strategy. In the post-pandemic era, people are more concerned about their health. We will take this conference as an opportunity to accelerate the development of anesthesia discipline nationwide, give full play to the role of anesthesia in modern medicine, further highlight the professional value of anesthesiologists, and make due contributions to the Healthy China 2030 initiative and safeguarding people's health.
