This is the summary of the PowerPoint presentations from this month’s consultant CPD teaching programme.
This month’s session provided an update on vascular anaesthesia in line with the Royal College of Anaesthetists Matrix.
The following topics were covered by Dr Karen Kerr and Dr Kevin Sadler (Consultant Anaesthetists, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust). The aim was to give an overview of anaesthesia for vascular surgery in the form of carotid endarterectomy and pre-operative assessment with cardiopulmonary testing.
