Audio-Digest Foundation announces the release of Anesthesiology Volume 55, Issue 33: Perioperative Management of the Patient with Severe Lung Disease.
The goal of this program is to improve anesthetic management of patients with severe lung disease. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Explain the pathophysiology of bullae and the risks they present.
2. Use arterial blood gases to direct the anesthetic management of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
3. Avoid or effectively treat dynamic hyperinflation.
4. Recognize differences in behavior of right-heart vs. left-heart pulmonary hypertension during anesthesia.
5. Monitor right ventricular function in patients with pulmonary hypertension.
The original programs were presented by Peter D. Slinger, MD, Professor of Anesthesiology, University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine, Toronto, ON.
