Audio-Digest Foundation announces the release of Anesthesiology Volume 56, Issue 02: Pediatric Care: The Formerly Premature Child/Asthma.
The goals of this program are to improve the anesthetic management of the formerly premature pediatric patient and the pediatric patient with asthma. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Outline the pathogenesis of bronchopulmonary dysplasia.
2. Describe how brain development of the formerly premature patient affects management of anesthesia.
3. Explain how the physiology of the pediatric lung affects therapeutic goals.
4. Perform a focused preoperative evaluation of the pediatric patient with asthma.
5. Choose appropriate medications for induction and maintenance of anesthesia for the pediatric patient with asthma.
The original programs were presented by Claire M. Brett, MD, Professor of Anesthesiology and Pediatrics, University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine. Linda J. Mason, MD, Professor of Anesthesiology and Pediatrics, Loma Linda University School of Medicine, and Director of Pediatric Anesthesia, Loma Linda University Medical Center, Loma Linda, CA.
