Evidence-based Clinical Care: Anesthesia Guidelines and Preventing Acute Kidney Injury

This Evidence-based Clinical Care course will review the new systemwide, pre-anesthesia/sedation testing guidelines developed for planned procedures. Adequate preoperative patient evaluation and preparation may improve patient outcomes, decrease complications and reduce incidence of acute kidney injury, delays, cancellations, costs, length of hospital stay and mortality.
