  28. What qualifications for training and/or experience are necessary to teach this course? (List minimum qualifications for the instructor.) Knowledge in specific content area
  29. Objectives: 1. Apply the scope and standards of nurse anesthesia practice to patients with cardiac, throacic, respiratory, ophthalmic, hepatic, endocrine, and ear, nose, and throat (ENT) derangement and dysfunction.

    2. Evaluate the impact of cardiac and respriatory pathophysiology on anesthesia care.

    3. Explain the process of respiration including pulmonary ventilation and oxygen carbon dioxide exchange.

    4. Review the concepts/theory of nurse anesthesia practice to the patient with advanced cardiothoracic dysfunction.

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

    a. Correct demonstrate proper pre/intra/post-operative management of cardiac and respriatory pathophysiology while under anesthesia care;

    b. Proper demonstration of airway management;

    c. Demonstrate comprehension of respiratory pathophysiology including pulmonary ventilation and oxygen carbon dioxide exchange;

    d. Succesfully management of vascular access, fluid resuscitation, and acid base management.
