Audio-Digest Foundation announces the release of Anesthesiology Volume 55, Issue 12: Anesthesiology in the Elderly/Anesthesiology and Coexisting Disease.
The goals of this program are to improve the perioperative assessment of the elderly patient and the management of patients with pulmonary disease. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Apply the geriatric risk assessment by American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) screening criteria in the preoperative evaluation.
2. Distinguish between patients requiring preoperative optimization and those who may be assessed on the day of surgery.
3. Explain the importance of closing volume and closing capacity.
4. Anticipate and appropriately treat intraoperative bronchospasm.
5. Describe the physiologic effects of smoking cessation.
The original programs were presented by Martin H. Dauber, MD, Assistant Professor, Department of Anesthesia and Critical Care, University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, Chicago, IL , and Peter K. Schoenwald, MD, Associate Professor of Anesthesiology, Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University, and Associate Director, Anesthesiology Education, and Staff Anesthesiologist, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH.
