As many of you know, our dear friend and colleague, Ron Litman died of cancer in April 2021. Ron was a “doctor’s doctor” and his work as a clinician-scientist, educator, and mentor left an enduring impact on our profession. Prior to his death, during an interlude when his strength returned from its nadir, he launched the Pediatric Anesthesia Article of the Day (PAAD). The idea was to briefly summarize new articles (and an occasional “classic” from the past) to keep his readers up-to-date AND to provide his insights into the article’s findings and their meanings. It is subscription based and is sent to subscriber’s email boxes about 3-4 times a week. The subscription is free, although Ron asked readers to consider donating to the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia. We are delighted to honor his memory in this way.
The PAAD is released 3-4 times a week. In addition, a week in review will be published on the SPA website and sent to all the subscribers and the entire SPA membership via the weekly emails. Please email [email protected] if you have any suggestion or you are interested in reviewing an article for PAAD.
John Fiadjoe, MD and Myron Yaster, MD
