Post-operative complications can be fatal if not recognized and treated rapidly. Complications can lead to extended hospital stays, increased cost, and diminished quality of life. If you care for patients who have received sedation, anesthesia and analgesia in the operative, interventional or diagnostic setting, this seminar is for you. Utilizing case studies and the latest evidence-based practice guidelines, Michael Greco, DNP, CRNA, CPAN, CAPA, will sharpen your understanding of the factors associated with post-operative risk.
Many post-operative complications, including potentially-fatal malignant hyperthermia, can occur in the immediate post-operative period. While other potential complications may present a little later into the follow-up care provided. Plan on attending this seminar and learn the many components needed to adequately evaluate patients following surgery, including: current (sometimes subtle) assessment findings that could flag something more significant, increased patient safety considerations, and strategies to prevent crisis situations from even happening.
NOTE: Tuition includes one free CE Certificate (participant will be able to print the certificate of completion after completing the on-line post-test (80% passing score) and completing the evaluation).
