The use of neuromuscular blocking agents will be covered in this course as well as planning anaesthesia for thoracic surgery, head and neck surgery, patients with cardiopulmonary disease and those with neurological problems.

Key Learning Objectives:

This day will cover how to plan an anaesthetic for both the patient undergoing a caesarean operation, the paediatric and geriatric patient.
