We have lost our colleague, Dr. Yannick LeManach (October 16, 1974 – July 13, 2020). He was a valued member of the PHRI family for many years, contributing to our Perioperative and Surgery research team. He was also an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anesthesia and the Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence and Impact, at McMaster University.
Dr. LeManach’s main clinical research interests included the prediction of postoperative complications after surgery, and perioperative hemodynamic management care and strategies to improve outcomes after surgery. With an MD in anesthesia and critical care from Paris VI University, a Masters of Cardiac Physiology from Paris VII University, and a PhD in Biostatistics and Epidemiology from Paris V University in France, he published more than 120 peer-reviewed scientific papers.
A beautiful In Memoriam was written by James Paul, Professor and Chair, Anesthesia, McMaster, citing among many wonderful qualities, Yannick “offered a unique perspective which focused on pathophysiology, pharmacology and evidence-based medicine. His clinical approach was often a little bit different than those of his colleagues, given his broad sphere of influence and training as well as his distinctive, keen intellect and his anesthetic plans were invariably well thought-out and expertly executed.”
Sadly, Yannick LeManach joins Our Colleagues Remembered.
