Episode Description

Coming up on your pediatric rotations? Pediatric anesthesia can be a little intimidating, but it can also be a really rewarding experience if you’re open to it. Not only are kiddos pretty fun, but you’ll be getting your hands on a wide variety of cases to help you learn and grow as a student!

In today’s episode, we’ll be covering a large chunk of what you need to know ahead of time, including:

  • The key factors that make pediatric patients different than adults

  • The different age groups in this unique patient population

  • The formulas you need to know for weight-based dosing for children

  • How to navigate pediatric airways and handle obstructions

  • An in-depth description of the lung mechanics, vital signs, and cardiac system of pediatric patients

  • Tips for making things fun with little patients (and pre-operative medicines and strategies for helping with patient anxiety)

So grab your headphones, hit play, and take a deep breath. These kids are in good hands, future CRNA!
