ANES 4021: Pharmacology and Principles of Clinical Anesthesia
The goal of this course is to present the theory of clinical anesthesia to Anesthesia Assistant program students. Students build upon their general knowledge of pharmacological principles and learn pharmacology in the context of clinical anesthesia. Both general and regional anesthesia is considered. Students will learn the theory of current safe practice in pre-anesthetic care, preparation, induction, maintenance, and emergence from general anesthesia. The application of anesthetic workstation and other technology used in the delivery of anesthesia is considered as this course builds upon the theories from ANES 4001: Anesthesia Equipment and ANES 4011: Hemodynamic and Physiologic Monitoring.
