Glendale, CA (PRWEB) April 28, 2013

Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Anesthesiology Volume 55, Issue 05: Ultrasonography/Local Anesthesia/NonOpioid Analgesics.

The goal of this program is to improve pediatric pain management through use of ultrasonographically (US) guided regional techniques, prompt diagnosis and treatment of local anesthetic systemic toxicity (LAST), and use of intravenous (IV) nonopioid analgesic adjuncts. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Implement US-guided regional techniques to improve pediatric patient safety and satisfaction.
2. Recognize the signs and symptoms of LAST.
3. Develop departmental treatment protocols for LAST that incorporate use of 20% lipid emulsion.
4. Cite evidence supporting the benefits of IV NSAIDs as nonopioid analgesic adjuncts in pediatric patients.
5. Use appropriate doses of nonopioid analgesic adjuncts to reduce the need for postoperative opioids.

The original programs were presented by Robert A. Wiebe, MD, Clinical Professor, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, and Lalit Bajaj, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, University of Colorado School of Medicine, and Research Director, Section of Emergency Medicine, Children’s Hospital, Denver.
