Glendale, CA / myprgenie.com / ACCESSWIRE / May 17, 2014 / Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Anesthesiology Volume 56, Issue 06: Optimizing the Bowel/Difficult Airway.
The goals of this program are to optimize bowel function in critically ill patients and to outline techniques for safe extubation of the difficult airway. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Outline methods for the optimization of the bowel.
2. Explain the physiology of bowel ischemia and permeability.
3. Describe extubation failure and how it differs from weaning failure.
4. Risk stratify patients at tracheal extubation.
5. Develop a treatment plan for difficult extubation.
