Department of anesthesiology
The department of anesthesiology, Beijing Jishuitan Hospital, was established in 1958. After decades of hard work, our department has developed into a well-functioning clinical platform, providing high quality clinical work for the patients, medical education of anesthesia to the medical students, and also organizing massive work of scientific clinical research of anesthesia.
Chief of the department:
Professor Mingcang Jin (1958-1998)
Professor Guoshun Zhao (1998-1999)
Professor Xiaoxiong Sun (1999-2005)
Professor Shizhong Li (2006-2012)
Professor Geng Wang (2012- )
Milestones of the development:
Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) was put to use.
Autologous blood transfusion technology and other technologies to reduce the clinical use of blood were used. With all those technologies, we successfully rescued patients from multiple cases of critical conditions.
Patient Controlled Analgesia (PCA) was used in clinical practice.
Acute Normovolemic Hemodilution (ANH) was started to be used in our clinical practice.
Nerve stimulator guided regional nerve block was widely used in clinical practice. And all these years, we have always been in the leading position in our nation.
Ultrasound guided regional nerve block and deep venous puncture.
Hemodynamic monitoring became a clinical routine.
Four specialized groups were established, aiming to elevate the quality of our clinical practice and further deepen the scientific research in various fields of anesthesia.
Anesthesia depth monitoring became a clinical routine.
Huilongguan District of Beijing Jishuitan Hospital was put into use.
Become a regional anesthesia training center of Chinese Society of Anesthesiology.
Become an inhalational anesthesia training center of CSA.
Become a blood management training center of CSA.
Target controlled infusion (TCI) intravenous anesthesia became a clinical routine.
Become an orthopedics anesthesia training center of CSA.
Successfully conducted the first regional anesthesia training course of AARS
Successfully conduct national training course of regional anesthesia teachers.
Awarded as excellent national training center of regional anesthesia.
Staffs: We have 69 anesthesiologists in the anesthesia department, along with 17 nurses, as 86 staffs in total. Four of them are chief physicians, 12 anesthesiologists are associate chief physicians, and we also have 29 attending physicians and 24 resident physicians. Eighteen physicians have medical doctor degree and 38 have master degree.
Clinical work: We are practicing general anesthesia (inhalation anesthesia, total intravenous anesthesia, Combined intravenous-inhalation anesthesia), spinal anesthesia (continuous epidural anesthesia, subarachnoid block, combined spinal epidural anesthesia), peripheral nerve block (cervical plexus block, brachial plexus block, lumbar plexus block, sciatic nerve block, femoral nerve block, fascia iliac block, paravertebral block etc.) for our patients. Every day in our clinical practice, we monitor the direct arterial blood pressure, central venous pressure (CVP), use minimally invasive hemodynamics monitoring technique (such as Picco, Flotrac) , monitor anesthesia depth (BIS, entropy), use arterial blood gas analysis (ABG), practice the autologous blood transfusion technology, and also the patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) technology, to provide better anesthesia and better perioperative care.
At the end of 2014, we had done 49159 cases of anesthesia in the whole year, including 36.9% general anesthesia, 17.4% spinal anesthesia, 38.7% peripheral nerve block. Postoperative analgesia was carried out with 12432 patients, including 9427 cases of PCA and 3005 cases of PCNA. The autologous blood transfusion technology had been used to help 3150 patients, saving 947045ml of blood in total. The very technology helped 2623 patients to avoid the use of autologous blood transfusion. The post anesthesia care unit (PACU) took care of 10625 patients.
Medical education: Our department provides medical education for the medical students of medical college of Peking University. We are obligated with the course of introduction to surgery for the students of 8 year curriculum at the moment. We also have postgraduate students. Up to 2013, 12 of them had been awarded master degree, one doctor degree. As one of the standardized resident training organizations of Beijing, we have cultivated a number of resident physicians, who are now working for their original hospital. We send young promising physicians overseas to pursue advanced technologies of anesthesia, and now they are all back working in the department.
We conduct the peripheral nerve block anesthesia seminar and the national blood protection course every year. In 2014, more than 200 physicians across the country benefitted from 13 courses all together.
Scientific research: Regional block anesthesia, critical trauma anesthesia, perioperative blood conservation, has always been the focus of scientific research in the department. We have published more than 100 papers in the core journals, 4 SCI papers.
Development: According to the direction of hospital development, we will adjust the structure of the specialty groups, setting certain developing goals. Our clinical work and scientific research should impact each other. We should also promote our advantages. The department also provide excellent training platform and opportunities for the young physicians, encourage them to broaden their horizon.
