  4. Other Course Information

    A. Objectives

    During this course the student will have the opportunity to:

    1. Evaluate the obstetrical patient for anesthesia to include pre-operative assessment considering normal obstetrical physiology and the more common pathophysiologies, pain management, cesarean section care, proper positioning, and epidural anesthesia.

    2. Examine the principles of neonatal and pediatric anesthesia during pre-operative assessment, operating room and equipment set-up, appraisal of normal physiology and pathophysiology, and post anesthesia pain management.

    3. Organize the care of geriatric surgical patients for anesthesia to include: physical assessment, selection and administration of the anesthesia techniques, management of the anesthetic, and post-operative care.
