You already know what to do. Your scores are good but your YOG is very old, failing CS once is also a red-flag. You are pursuing research and that's good, if you are focussed on getting residency in Anesthesia than there is not much else you can do other than that, and trying to preen for the PD's whenever you get the chance. If I were you though, I would be sceptical of my chances of matching as the competition for anesthesia is just so tough. I would focus on IM or FM. But that's just me.
