This book helps prepare anesthesiology residents for safe practice of pediatric anesthesia. It features 26 index cases, which are classic clinical scenarios - all covering a spectrum of pediatric anesthesia, neuro-anesthesia, cardiac anesthesia, regional anesthesia, and anesthesia and critical care medicine
Chapters are divided into case-based formats with each chapter containing a scenario layout, useful equipment, major teaching points for an after simulation debrief, and a learner evaluation form. This tiered education method will assist learners in working though essential team building skills, increasing their knowledge base and finally having concrete items in which to further their professional skills
Each chapter starts with a learning objective and presents the simulation case before launching into the case progression, detailing how the simulated patient’s vital signs, physical exam findings, and clinical picture change over the course of the simulation. They are concluded with a master checklist of items the learner should accomplish during the course of the simulation along with a section summary and important teaching points
Pediatric and Adult Anesthesiology Simulation Education is designed to be used by both academic programs and private practice groups. It is beneficial to anesthesiology residents who are currently in training as well as those who have recently graduated and are preparing for board exams.
