Ext: 47467

Course Description: A 4-week course designed for students contemplating a career in anesthesia or desiring a more in-depth exposure than that provided during their one-week rotation. Students are assigned to an attending anesthesiologist for their elective time. They are involved in all aspects of anesthesia care from preoperative assessment to intraoperative management and postoperative care. In addition, the student will participate in a simulator curriculum which incorporates both lecture and simulator scenarios that illustrate perioperative hypoxia, hypotension, ischemia, and dysrhythmias. This elective can also be tailor-made to incorporate some of the subspecialties of anesthesiology, such as cardiac, obstetrics, and pain management.

ANESTHESIA IN CARDIAC SURGERY
Level(s): 3, 4
Week(s): 4

Course Description: Students will participate in the intraoperative anesthetic care delivered to adult and pediatric patients with a wide variety of cardiac surgical diagnoses in a busy tertiary care referral center. Goals and objectives for the 4 week rotation emphasize cardiopulmonary physiology and pathophysiology, anesthetic considerations and perioperative management of patients with cardiac surgical disease, the principles and practice of invasive hemodynamic monitoring, and basics of transesophageal echocardiography. A current textbook of cardiac anesthesia is available for use during the rotation and a large amount of interactive teaching will go on in conjunction with patient care in the OR. Students are expected to prepare for their assigned cases, to assist with all routine aspects of anesthesia care and to participate in our divisional weekly didactic teaching conference. Opportunities for performance of procedures in appropriate patients (e.g., insertion of intravenous and intra-arterial catheters, endotracheal intubation, central venous access) will depend on the level of experience of the student. Overall, a very educational and enjoyable rotation for the motivated student with prior basic anesthesia experience.

Course Description: 35 hours per week
This integrated course of human simulation, patient care, and lectures will expose the student to the principles of simulation and perioperative physiology and pharmacology. By spending time in the operating room and the simulator lab, students will "create" their own simulated patients, based on actual cases, and experiment with various anesthetic agents, vasoactive drugs, and physiologic events. In addition, the student will partake in a simulator curriculum that incorporates both lecture and simulator scenarios that illustrate perioperative hypoxia, hypotension, ischemia, and dysrhythmias.
