An Update of Office Based Anesthesia: A Discussion about Patient Management, New Drugs, Standards of Care
 
The seminar will take a look at the significant changes that have occurred within anesthesia and their impact on oral and maxillofacial surgery over the past 25 years. In exploring and discussing the various drugs, techniques, and monitoring that have been discussed in the anesthesia, OMFS and related literature we will ask ourselves various questions such as: how are we doing, are we setting a standard of care,  have we or have we not incorporated such a drug, technique or monitoring device into our practice.
 
 At the conclusion of this course, attendees will:
  • Have a better understanding of newer anesthetic pharmacologic agents and their potential indications and contraindications in office based oral and maxillofacial surgery
  • Understand available monitoring technology and their indications in office based anesthesia
  • Understand the benefit from the team approach to office based anesthesia in optimizing patient care
  • Better understand various medical conditions and their impact on anesthetic management of the patient
