Students review, examine and analyze all aspects of adjunct equipment used to administer anesthesia to patients. Activities for assessment include analyzing different monitoring devices, reviewing different tools and techniques for administering anesthesia safely, identifying complex situations and explaining how to manage them. Students focus on equipment in their workplace and compare and contrast with alternatives.
- Identify the adjunct anesthesia delivery equipment required to provide general or regional anesthesia.
- Analyze and contrast the appropriate physiological monitors necessary to ensure the safety of providing anesthesia.
- Describe clinical situations where typical monitoring and treatment strategies may not be sufficient.
- Propose alternative advanced equipment to aid in the analysis and treatment of complex perioperative scenarios.
- Summarize the risk of infection in anesthesia.
- Evaluate techniques and equipment used to eliminate cross contamination.
