    HLTH-6031 -  Anesthesia Theory & Equipment

    This course introduces students to anesthetic equipment commonly used in the operating room. In order to assist the anesthesiologist in the operating room (OR), this course provides the student with a sound knowledge base in the operation of the anesthetic gas machine and all its components such as vaporizers, breathing systems, ventilators, anti-pollution equipment and gas monitors. In addition to the weekly lecture format the professor will assign specific topics and assignments online. The student will participate in weekly discussions and will complete and submit assignments as directed.

    HLTH-6032 -  Cardiopulmonary Management

    This course introduces students to standards required for a pre-operative assessment. The student will learn techniques for non-complicated intubations for adult, pediatric and neonatal patients. Hemodynamic monitoring for all patients will be discussed as it’s applied in the operating room (OR). This includes the equipment, patient selection criteria, and catheter insertion techniques. The student will learn criteria for perioperative evaluation of the patient.

    HLTH-6033 -  Laboratory Procedures 1

    This course allows the student to perform practical simulations in a supervised and controlled laboratory environment using anesthetic equipment as discussed in HLTH 6031 (Anesthesia Equipment) and HLTH 6032 (Cardiopulmonary Management).

    HLTH-6034 -  Anesthesia Pharmacology

    This course discusses anesthesia pharmacology. Specific areas include inhalation anesthesia, muscle relaxants, intravenous, local and regional anesthesia as well as post-op pain management.

    HLTH-6035 -  Principles of Anesthesia Care

    This course focuses on the complete anesthesia patient care from the start of an operation to the recovery room.

    HLTH-6036 -  Case Study Management

    Different patient case scenarios will be presented and discussed with respect to the role of the Anesthesia Assistant.

    HLTH-6037 -  Laboratory Procedures 2

    Under direction of the Anesthesiologist, this course allows the student to perform practical simulations in a supervised and controlled laboratory environment using anesthetic equipment as discussed in HLTH 6035 (Principles of Anesthesia Care) and HLTH 6034 (Anesthesia Pharmacology).

    HLTH-6038 -  Clinical Practicum

    Under the direct supervision of an Anesthesiologist, this course provides the student the opportunity to apply skills and techniques studied in the didactic portion of the program in a supervised clinical setting. Practicum areas include equipment setup and maintenance, perioperative assessment, clinical anesthesia and post anesthesia care.
