Glendale, CA (PRWEB) February 23, 2013
Audio-Digest Foundation announces the release of Anesthesiology Volume 55, Issue 01: Evolving Role of the Anesthesiologist in Maintaining GI Function.
The original program was presented by John B. Leslie, MD, MBA, Professor of Anesthesiology, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Rochester, MN; Consultant, Department of Anesthesiology, Mayo Clinic Arizona, Scottsdale, and Professor of Clinical Anesthesia, University of Arizona, Tucson, at Scottsdale Anesthesia: New Developments and Controversies.
The goal of this program is to improve the prevention and management of post-operative gastrointestinal (GI) dysfunction. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will better be able to:
1. Recognize the signs and symptoms of postoperative ileus (POI).
2. Explain mechanisms by which opioids effect the GI tract.
3. Use anesthetic and surgical techniques that limit the risk for POI.
4. Institute accelerated care pathways to reduce the risk for POI.
5. Consider the use of peripherally active µ opioid receptor agonists to minimize POI and opioid-induced constipation.
