Techniques and Strategies for Safe Pediatric Anesthesia

Sedating and anesthetizing children can be challenging, particularly in the office setting. Children can develop airway problems and desaturate more quickly than adults, and they often have less respiratory reserve. Additionally, children are more prone to laryngospasm and are often sick with or recovering from respiratory tract infections, which can increase their risk of an adverse respiratory event under anesthesia. Providers must make careful calculations prior to anesthesia administration because dosing of medications is weight-based, and an error in dosage will affect a child more severely than an adult. Learn safe and effective strategies for avoiding complications during anesthesia or sedation in children in this 60-minute webinar.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:

  1. Review appropriate selection of pediatric patients for office-based anesthesia.  
  2. List common adverse events during anesthesia and sedation for pediatric patients.  
  3. Discuss effective treatment for airway obstruction.  
  4. Evaluate techniques for early diagnosis and recognition of respiratory adverse events.

Cancellation Policy: Registrants will receive a full refund up until the day before the event. No refund will be given on the day of or after the event.
