The Harvard Medical School is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Harvard Medical School designates this live activity for a maximum of 29.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada recognizes conferences and workshops held outside of Canada that are developed by a university, academy, hospital, specialty society or college as accredited group learning activities.

AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ claimed by physicians attending live events certified and organized in the United States for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ can be claimed through the agreement on mutual recognition of credits between UEMS and AMA, considered as being equal to the European Continuous Medical Education Credits (ECMEC©) granted by the UEMS. One AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ is equivalent to one (1) hour of European EACCME Credit (ECMEC©), therefore up to 29.25 ECMEC© Credits are available. Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

This program has been approved by the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists for 26 CE credits. Code Number 1030212; Expiration Date 05/10/2015.

Event Overview
Welcome message:

The recent growth and sub-specialization of pediatric anesthesia has identified specific areas that are unique when compared to the general practice of anesthesia. This course provides a comprehensive, up-to-date and current research review of the most important changes and advances relevant to the practice of pediatric anesthesia and critical care. The program includes a variety of evidence based lectures with question and answer sessions, hands-on workshops in difficult airway management, regional anesthesia and introduction to basic transesophageal ECHO management. Our aim is to provide new information and skills that will impact and improve safety and quality in the pediatric operating room and the intensive care unit.


At the conclusion of this course, the participants will be able to:

  • Evaluate neurotoxicity and anesthetic effects on neurocognition
  • Develop treatment strategies for pediatric patients with medical problems including asthma, mitochondrial, neuromuscular, and cardiac disease
  • State the physiologic consequences and subsequent anesthetic management of tonsillectomy
  • Develop multidisciplinary approaches to sedation and chronic pain management
  • Implement strategies to manage patients with pulmonary hypertension
  • Integrate updated guidelines in PACU problems and discharge criteria
  • Incorporate updates from the PALS algorithm
  • Understand how pediatric simulation training can improve preparedness and outcomes
  • Adopt new lung protective ventilation strategies
  • Learn how to prevent mistakes and learn from medical errors with emphasis on apology and disclosures
  • Enhance skills in managing difficult pediatric airway
