The purpose of the CME activity is to provide physicians, certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs), anesthesia assistants (AAs), registered nurses, fellows and residents an up-to-date refresher on information, techniques, and current research relevant to the practice of pediatric anesthesia. The goals of the CME activity will be accomplished with lectures, forums, and pro/con debates that will assess participant feedback in real time, using an audience participation system. The ultimate goal is to provide participants with tools and information that will improve the quality and safety of the care they provide to the pediatric patient in the perioperative setting.

  • Review current issues and recent literature in pediatric anesthesia including the scientific basis for current NPO guidelines required of all pediatric patients prior to the delivery of anesthesia.
  • Describe management strategies common for intraoperative emergencies, including anaphylaxis, an unanticipated difficult intubation, malignant hyperthermia, laryngospasm and cardiac arrest.
  • Understand the anesthetic implications of caring for the pediatric trauma patient, including the pediatric patient presenting with severe burn injuries.
