Andre De Wolf

Andre De Wolf is professor at the Department of Anesthesiology at Northwestern University, Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, IL, USA, and with Jan Hendrickx, the founding father of NAVAt. He is one of the world’s experts on hemodynamics during liver transplantation, and while working at University Pittsburgh Medical Center from 1981 until 1996, closely collaborated with Thomas Starzl, the surgeon who invented liver transplantation. He developed a secondary interest in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of inhaled anesthetics, which started to lead a second life in and by itself after meeting Jan Hendrickx. He will convince us that isocapnic hyperventilation is not worth the effort and expense.
