This information will be integrated with other aspects of the surgical procedure and knowledge gained from the course co-requisites; physiology, pathophysiology, and pharmacology in order to prepare for and deliver a safe anesthetic. Recognition of diverse populations is discussed and the influence of culture on care throughout the perioperative period is analyzed. The laboratory component will utilize simulation experiences to reinforce concepts covered within this course and covered within the co-requisites listed above.
