Katsuyuki Miyasaka, MD, PhD, FAAP Professor Emeritus
St. Luke’s International University, Tokyo
Katsuyuki Miyasaka, MD, is a pediatric anesthesia and critical care specialist trained in Japan, Canada, and the US, now practicing in Tokyo, JAPAN. His interest in research on clinical physiology resulted in progress in high frequency oscillation, artificial surfactant replacement therapy, NO inhalation therapy and expansion of the use of pulse oximetry for anesthesia safety. He was involved in the first clinical study of sevoflurane. Dr. Miyasaka was a representative of Japan for ISO TC-121 on anesthesia related equipment and was an active advocate of anesthesia safety including the promotion of perianesthesia nursing in Japan. He participated in the editorial board of the APSF Newsletter. He has published over 300 original articles. He is now Professor Emeritus of St. Luke’s International University in Tokyo.
Keith J Ruskin, MD
Professor of Anesthesia and Critical Care
University of Chicago
Keith J Ruskin, MD is a Professor of Anesthesia and Critical Care at the University of Chicago. His major academic interests include neurosurgical anesthesia, human performance, and aerospace medicine, and he enjoys teaching these disciplines to practicing physicians. Keith has worked as part of a team to develop guidelines for screening morbidly obese pilots for obstructive sleep apnea and for the management of in-flight cardiac arrest. He has developed a fatigue risk management program for physicians who must work overnight shifts and participated in a NASA workshop on space torpor. Keith is also interested in the terrestrial applications for this work, writing articles on the role of automation in the operating room and how personal protective equipment affects human performance. His funded research involves the role of alarms, alerts, and warnings in Air Traffic Control.
Keith’s publications include topics such as safety, automation and human performance, willingness to fly during the COVID-19 pandemic, management of critical events, and other topics related to patient safety. He serves on the American Society of Anesthesiologists’ Patient Safety Editorial Board and Committee on Patient Safety Education and is Chair of the Aerospace Medical Association’s Aerospace Human Performance Committee. He holds the titles of Fellow of the Aerospace Medical Association, Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society, and Fellow of the American Society of Anesthesiologists.

Samsun (Sem) Lampotang, PhD, FSSH, FAIMBE is the Joachim S. Gravenstein Professor of Anesthesiology, Director of the Center for Safety, Simulation & Advanced Learning Technologies (CSSALT) and a Joint Professor of Urology. His current research includes simulator-based mastery training and virtual coaches. He co-invented the CAE/METI Human Patient Simulator (HPS), the Virtual Anesthesia Machine (VAM) and mixed reality procedural simulators for “blind” and US-guided procedures, including central venous access, regional anesthesia and prostate biopsy, some with virtual coaches for self-instruction and self-debriefing for mastery-based training. He also co-invented the Hamilton Max transport ventilator, venting technology used in a urine output monitor and a chest drainage system, an electromagnetic prostate biopsy guidance system to reduce false negatives, and the PanVentTM Emergency Use Ventilator. His numerous awards include the 2007 Society for Education in Anesthesia/Duke Award for Excellence and Innovation in Anesthesia Education and the Society for Technology in Anesthesia 2022 JS Gravenstein Award for Lifetime Achievement in Technology in Anesthesia.
