Anesthesia Research & Development — Fairfield Division

IAA is affiliated with multiple research and development programs, allowing team members to work on cutting edge anesthesia research.

Fairfield Division — Randomized Clinical Trials

Research Opportunity Overview

In our experimental randomized clinical trials, we formulate a novel anesthetic protocol. After clearance from our institutional review board, we assign patients to treatment / non-treatment cohorts and use statistical methods to assess the efficacy of our intervention.


A great example of this is our recent RCT of PENG nerve blocks for anterior total hip replacement [AAHKS 2021, T. Bowling et. al].


Research trainees interested in randomized clinical trials should have a solid foundation in advanced statistics and study design.


After developing a hypothesis, collaborating with our surgical colleagues, and acquiring clearance from our institutional review board, research trainees will work closely with senior anesthesia faculty in the process of formulating a feasible and generalizable clinical trial.
