To Sleep or Not to Sleep: Pediatric Preoperative Assessment and Optimization (.5 Class A CE with .25 Pharm)

Monday, September 24
2:15 PM - 2:45 PM
Location: Room 210, Hynes

A review of the current evidence based research on pediatric assessment will help CRNAs provide safe care for the smallest patients. It's important to know when to obtain clearance for specific chronic pathological conditions, when to transfer care or recommend care to a pediatric institution, and when to safely proceed with a pediatric anesthetic. CRNAs will be familiar with current research recommendations for pediatric preoperative optimization.

I graduated from Rush University in Chicago as a CRNA in 2011. From there I moved to Boston where I worked at Massachusetts General Hospital for nearly three years practicing in both adults and pediatrics. After starting my own family, we moved back home to Chicago where I worked at Rush University Medical Center, primarily with the adult population. It was during this time that I realized how much I missed pediatrics and pursued a position at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago. Pediatrics is truly my passion. I am currently continuing my education in order to obtain my DNAP from Virginia Commonwealth University.
