  29. Objectives: 1. Describe the patient with neurologic, renal, and orthopedic dysfunction or derangement for anesthesia to include pre-operative assessment considering normal physiology and the more common pathophysiologies, pain management, and proper positioning.

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

    3. Provide care to the spinal cord injury patient for anesthesia to include: physical assessment, selection and administration of the anesthesia techniques, management of the anesthetic and post-operative care.

    4. Illustrate effective communication tools, techniques, including information systems and communication technologies, to facilitate discussions and interactions that enhance team function.

    5. Promote application of the steps of evidence-based practice in simulation lab.

    6. Incorporate the use of evidence-based practice guidelines in the clinical setting.

  30. Learning Outcomes: Student outcomes include:

    1. Competency in the use of health information technology to transform health care such as electronic health records.

    2. Correct demonstration of an anesthesia evaluation of the patient with neurologic, renal, and orthopedic dysfunction or derangement.

    a. Satisfactory completion of pre-operative assessment considering physiology

    and the more common pathophysiologies for these systems, pain

    management, and proper positioning.

    3. Correct demonstration of the principles of trauma anesthesia.

    a. Satisfactory completion of pre-operative assessment, operating room and equipment set-up, appraisal of normal physiology and pathophysiology, and post anesthesia pain management.

    4. Plan of care for the spinal cord injury patient.

    a. Satisfactory completion includes: physical assessment, selection and

    administration of the anesthesia techniques, management of the anesthetic

    and post-operative care.
