NEW!The Continued Need for Neuromuscular Block Monitoring: A Journey to Improve Patient Safety and Patient Outcomes
This FREE program is supported by an educational grant from Merck. There are inconsistent practice patterns and misperceptions among anesthesia clinicians, as pertains to the importance of monitoring of patients for residual neuromuscular block. To ensure optimal safety and comfort of the patient postoperatively, it is essential that anesthesia clinicians are apprised of data on both established and emerging agents that can facilitate recovery from neuromuscular blockade agents given intraoperatively. Lessons cover: Relevant History Regarding the Clinical Assessment of Neuromuscular Blockade Quantitative Twitch Monitoring Devices - A Current Survey Understanding Neuromuscular Blockade This is a 3 module education activity with up to 2.5 credits available for completion of Module 1 and up to 7.5 additional credits available after completion of Modules 2 and 3 for a total of 10 credits. Didactic. Module 1 provides a series of presentations and quizzes. Up to 2.5 credits are available upon completion. Bonus material: Access to an app based surgical simulation intended to demonstrate the correct steps and processes by which quantitative NMB monitoring can be performed, beginning with stimulating electrode placement (and electrode sites), the monitoring of neuromuscular blockade onset with TOF, intraoperative monitoring and redosing, the correct use of PTC, and the assessment of reversal with both neostigmine and sugammadex. Instructions on how to register and download the app will be provided after completion of Module 1. The optional Performance Improvement part starts with Module 2. Through a series of guided questions and utilizing concepts learned, you will create a Performance Improvement Action Plan. Subscribe to the discussion board to post comments or questions. After plan submission, spend a minimum of 14 days for implementation. On day 15 you will have access to Module 3 to reflect and report on outcomes. Up to 7.5 credits are available upon completion.

Cases from the Perioperative Surgical Home: A Journey to Improve Quality and Patient Safety
This is the first of a 6-Part Series showcasing PSH case studies representing a variety of different size and types of institutions and perspectives. These cases will focus on the institutions’ journey and improvement on patient care and outcomes. Institution representatives discuss the barriers and challenges faced and solutions for overcoming those challenges along the journey. A how-to journey with real institutions will help participants reflect on how to approach their own PSH journey.

Understanding the Relationship between Intraoperative Hypotension and Clinical Outcomes in Surgical Patients
Both hypotension and hypertension have been reported to be associated with postoperative complications or mortality. Thanks to an educational grant from Edwards Lifesciences, this course provides a deeper understanding of the importance of blood pressure management on postoperative outcomes. Faculty with expertise in the field, deliver crucial information to train clinicians and members of the care team on how to identify complications, manage outcomes and follow up appropriately. This complimentary course is available to all ASA account holders. This is a 3 module education activity with up to 2.5 credits available for completion of Module 1 and up to 7.5 additional credits available after completion of Modules 2 and 3 for a total of 10 credits.
