OBJECTIVES

  1. Analyze the regulatory issues and standards driving changes in perianesthesia practice.
  2. Explain new protocols emerging as evidence-based practice.
  3. Differentiate the pharmacology and physiology of frequently-used induction, inhalation, neuromuscular blocking, and reversal agents used in the perianesthesia setting.
  4. Evaluate the key elements involved in medical malpractice.
  5. Analyze effective perianesthesia documentation.
  6. Demonstrate why certain populations pose challenges in the perianesthesia setting.
  7. Develop appropriate management strategies for acute pain in the postoperative setting.
  8. Determine interventions for postanesthesia complications.
