Dr. Pallavi Patel College of Health Care Sciences—Department of Anesthesia 279 M.S. in Anesthesia—Fort Lauderdale Course Descriptions ANES 5000—Professional Issues in Anesthesiologist Assistant Practice As providers within the dynamic U.S. health care system, anesthesiologist assistants must possess the ability to exhibit professionalism in a wide range of clinical and nonclinical settings. This course will provide learners with an overview of contemporary and historical practice issues relevant to the anesthesiologist assistant. (2 credits) ANES 5001—Clinical Anesthesia I Developmental skills and foundations of the clinical practice of anesthesia are gained through one-on-one supervised instruction in the operating room and other ancillary anesthetizing locations. Participation and responsibilities increase through the year as knowledge and skills develop. (3 credits) ANES 5002—Clinical Anesthesia II This course is a continuation of ANES 5001. Developmental skills and foundations of the clinical practice of anesthesia are gained through one-on-one supervised instruction in the operating room and other ancillary anesthetizing locations. Participation and responsibilities increase through the year as knowledge and skills develop. (3 credits) ANES 5621—Principle of Airway Management I This course will provide an opportunity to learn and appreciate structure, function, pathophysiology, disease, and management of the human airway. The basic and advanced principles of elective and emergent airway management, including equipment and techniques, will be covered. Examination, recognition, techniques, and management involved in pediatric and adult difficult airways will be discussed. Course will correlate with laboratory work for a better understanding and use of bag/mask ventilation, oral and nasal airways, oral and nasal intubation techniques, lightwands, fiberoptic intubations, double lumen tubes, surgical airways, and application of laryngeal mask airway.

(2 credits) ANES 5048—Medical Terminology This is a self-study, online course. Use of medical language for appropriate and accurate communication in patient care. Course includes terminology and symbols, word formation, body systems and disease terms, abbreviations, and procedures. (1 credit) ANES 5081—Introduction to Clinical Anesthesia Prepares and educates the student to work within the anesthesia care team. Introduction to induction, maintenance, and emergence fromanesthesia. Includes history of anesthesia, types of anesthesia, universal precautions and infection control, layout of the operating room, sterile fields and techniques, interacting with patients, starting intravenous catheters and arterial cannulae, obtaining arterial blood samples, and application of ASA-standard monitors. Students will use an anesthesia simulator to gain the basic knowledge and usage of monitors. (2 credits) ANES 5107—Internship Students will complete 80 hours of internship in an area of interest within a health care organization outside of their regular places of employment. The final product of this internship is an in-depth SWOT analysis of the unit or health care organization. The internship site requires prior Department of Anesthesia faculty member approval. (5 credits) ANES 5301—Anesthesia Laboratory I A state-of-the-art laboratory and anesthesia simulator will prepare the student for the usage and complete understanding of the monitors and practice of anesthesia. Students will apply their didactic knowledge to scenarios on the anesthesia simulator. Patient modalities—such as pulse oximetry, capnography, and blood pressure monitoring systems—are explored. Laboratory experiments will develop students’ understanding of anesthesia delivery systems, various types of breathing circuits, fresh gas flow effect, theory of dilutional methods of cardiac output monitoring, and relations between mean circulatory filling pressures and central venous pressure. A vascular sonography lab will allow a unique and comprehensive understanding of transesophageal and transthoracic echocardiography, cerebrovascular testing, and venous and peripheral arterial testing. (3 credits) ANES 5302—Anesthesia Laboratory II This course is a continuation of ANES 5301. A state-of-theart laboratory and anesthesia simulator will prepare the student for the usage and complete understanding of the monitors and practice of anesthesia. Students will apply their
