ANS 403 - Pediatric Clinical Anesthesia


The clinical anesthesia elective offered at Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters/Eastern Virginia Medical School will provide the medical student with practical and theoretical aspects of anesthetic techniques as they apply to the subspecialty of pediatric anesthesia with special emphasis on the differences between the adult and the pediatric patient in areas of airway management, fluid management, preoperative and postoperative evaluation and care. There will be hands-on experience with managing the pediatric airway including insertion of oral airways, laryngoscopy and intubation; there will also be hands-on experience in the techniques of intravenous access. Participation in resident’s didactic session will be optional. Due to the very specialized nature of pediatric anesthesia, previous experience in adult anesthesia is strongly recommended. Students with this prior anesthesia experience will be given preference. Course length is 2 weeks with the option to extend to 4 weeks for those students planning to go into the anesthesiology field. Before signing up for this course, please email Ms. Lisa Seate, Lisa.Seate@chkd.org, with your motivations for taking this course and details of your past anesthesia experience.
