Dr. Perry is the Chief of Cardiothoracic Anesthesia at the University of Minnesota Medical Center in Minneapolis. He completed his anesthesia training and subspecialty training in cardiothoracic anesthesia at the Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School of Medicine, where he went on to receive his Masters in Clinical and Translational Research. His current professional focus is understanding how what happens at the intersection of human behavior and complex systems, such as the cardiac operating rooms, impacts professional satisfaction and personal wellbeing of the physician, and safety and clinical outcomes of the patient.
At this years' Annual Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists Meeting in Chicago, Dr. Perry delivered a talk titled "Art to Automation; Reclaiming Our Presence and Intuition in the Operating Room" with the aim of shedding light on the complexities of adequately caring for the critically ill in our current clinical setting, and elevating the conversation around how we might leverage existing and in-coming technology in ways that might augment the performance of our clinical care teams.
Dr. Perry is always looking for value-added conversation with anyone, medical or not, that might add perspective on this very relevant and timely issue. He can be reached or followed through Twitter; @teperryMD.
