Advanced Principles of Anesthesia Practice II
This course is a continuation of Advanced Principles I. A systems approach will be employed to discuss the various types of surgical patients and problems that the anesthetist will encounter when caring for them. We will look at the various surgical procedures from the anesthetic standpoint in detail, including pre-operative assessment, planning for intraoperative events, and caring for the patient in the post-operative period. We will also address the population likely to present for each procedure, and the unique problems that these patients present with throughout the perioperative course.
