It’s 1987 and the term virtual reality was coined. Thirty-three years later, this technology is still young. What is this used for other than gaming and how can you apply it to anesthesiology?
Attendees will come away with:
The COVID-19 pandemic has shifted the landscape of anesthesia care to involve telehealth, a tool that includes phone- and video-conferencing. Traditionally, pre-anesthesia consultations involve in person medical history-taking; laboratory testing or investigations; focused physical examination; and referral to other medical services to optimize the patient’s health prior to anesthetic procedures. The transition to incorporate virtual visits for not only patients living in rural and remote areas, but also local patients, prompts anesthesiologists to adapt their traditional practices to a new digital platform.
This lecture highlights best practices for virtual pre-anesthesia consultations.
