Discover New Guidelines with Anesthesiology CME

From the University of Pittsburgh Regional Anesthesia and Perioperative Medicine: Complete Review Series. This online CME program encompasses the management of difficult patients and the pharmacology of recent medications that have changed the scope of anesthesiology practice. Lecture topics include the anesthetic management of morbidly obese patients with sleep apnea, those with severe liver disease, the extreme elderly, and trauma patients. With the scope of practice leaning toward the avoidance of opioids and faster recovery, the second half of Perioperative Medicine Part 1 – General Anesthesiology focuses on opioid-free anesthesia, and the pharmacology of ketamine, methadone, suggamadex, and liposomal bupivacaine.
