Pediatric anesthesia and critical care continues to present challenges to anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, and critical care physicians. Improved survival of children with congenital anomalies has resulted in an ever increasing population of pediatric patients with complex surgical and medical conditions. This course provides a comprehensive, up-to-date and current research review of the most important changes and advances relevant to the practice of pediatric anesthesia and critical care. The program includes a variety of evidence-based lectures with question and answer sessions, hands-on workshops in difficult airway management, point-of-care ultrasound, regional anesthesia and acupuncture. Our mission is to provide information, strategies, and skills for improving care and outcomes for pediatric patients in the operating room, outfield and the intensive care unit.
