Antonio  Filippo  Arcadipane,Profof Medicine, Chief  of  Anesthesia Department. ISMETT UPMC-Personal statment: I retired  from  Germany  after residency.  Before joining  ISMETT’s  team, for  three years I  worked in  Palermo  at  Villa Maria Eleonora’s  Hospital as a  cardiothoracic  consultant.
At  ISMETT I contributed to  the  development of  the  entire program in  liver transplantation,  abdominal  surgery and thoracic  surgery. I  focused my  activity  mainly to  cardiac surgery and  to  solid organ  transplants with a particular  dedication to  extra corporeal support, ECMO. My  fundamental  role  has been involved in  the  structural organization and in the  electro medical systems  of all the  critical areas of  our  hospital. The  realization  of  the Hybrid  Room  was  one  of my goals such  as the  increase  of beds in  intensive  care  unit.
