Local and regional anesthetic techniques (Proceedings)

November 1, 2010

Patients are typically sedated or anesthetized and placed in sternal or lateral recumbency. Next, the cranial edge of the wings of the ilia are palpated. Once located, a 10 cm by 10 cm area of hair directly over the lumbosacral junction is clipped and the skin is surgically prepared.

Anesthetic management of patients with cardiovascular disease (Proceedings)

August 1, 2010

Our patient population has changed fairly dramatically in the last 10 years as our medical skills have progressed and we have become capable of supporting patients with advanced disease and advancing age. Now we must hone our anesthesia skills in order to support patients that largely don't fit into the 'young, healthy' category and it is no longer appropriate to think that safe anesthesia means recovering as many patients as we anesthetize.
