DNA NURSAN 3795 2.0 Advanced Principles of Anatomy, Physiology and Pathophysiology 2

This second course in the series is designed to review the relevant anatomy and physiology of the endocrine, renal, hepatic, gastrointestinal, (and other intraabdominal organ), immune, hematologic and genitourinary systems. Students will develop in-depth understanding of how pathophysiology involving these systems will influence anesthetic choices and management approaches. Referencing best-evidence and clinical protocols, students will describe management approaches for surgical and therapeutic procedures related to these systems. Additionally, the pathophysiology of psychiatric illness, infectious disease, cancer and obesity will be reviewed and approaches to anesthesia care in the presence of these conditions will be developed.
