Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Anesthesiology Volume 55, Issue 10: Postoperative Respiratory Depression/ Pacemakers and AICDS.
The goals of this program are to reduce the risk for postoperative respiratory depression and improve the perioperative management of patients with cardiovascular implantable electronic devices (CIEDs). After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Discuss how the synergy between opioids and sleep increases the risk for postoperative respiratory depression.
2. Minimize the risks associated with intermittent clinical monitoring in patients receiving narcotics.
3. Utilize electronic monitoring to decrease the incidence of adverse respiratory events.
4. List indications for interrogation of CIEDs.
5. Apply safety precautions for patients with CIEDs in the perioperative setting.
The original programs were presented by Nikolaus Gravenstein, MD, Professor of Anesthesiology and Professor of Neurosurgery, University of Florida, Gainesville, and Kent B. Berg, MD, MBA, Asst. Professor of Anesthesiology, University of Florida, Gainesville.
