Many CRNAs practice in settings of community hospitals to which adults and children come for care. Becoming familiar with some specific differences when comparing children to adults under anesthesia can be helpful in preventing untoward events in the operating room. Adult providers that experience less that 200 pediatric cases a year have a significantly larger rate of negative outcomes than providers who care for children exclusively. CRNAs who work in community hospitals where children and adults present for care will benefit from this presentation and use it as a reference when they are assigned a pediatric case or are called to a pediatric emergency in a primarily adult center.

Learning Objectives:

Lenore France, MSN, CRNA

Akron Childrens Medical Center
Silver Lake, Ohio

Lenore has been a practicing anesthetist since 1992. After experiencing Cardio thoracic anesthesia, General adult, Obstetric, she decided to delve into full time Pediatrics at Akron Childrens Medical Center. It has been an interesting and challenging transition! Her presentation today focuses on helpful hints for the adult practitioner dealing with an emergency pediatric situation in the ER or the occasional 5 year old Tonsillectomy on a former 32 weeker. In these changing times of hospitals and their management, it's always helpful to have a firm foundation in pediatric care with which to feel comfortable.
