Audio-Digest Foundation announces the release of Anesthesiology Volume 55, Issue 41: Abnormal Placentation/ Nerve Injury.
The goals of this program are to improve anesthetic management of obstetric patients with abnormal placentation and to decrease the risk of injury associated with peripheral nerve blockade. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Recognize risk factors for abnormal placentation.
2. List the advantages and disadvantages of cell salvage in obstetric surgery.
3. Establish an anesthesia protocol for placenta accreta and unexpected cesarean hysterectomy.
4. Explain potential mechanisms of nerve injury.
5. Provide appropriate evaluation and treatment of patients with nerve injuries.
The original programs were presented by Kathleen A. Smith, MD, Assistant Professor, Departments of Anesthesiology and Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, School of Medicine and David Hardman, MD, MBA, Professor of Anesthesiology and Vice Chair for Professional Affairs, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, School of Medicine.
