When faced with unexplained intraoperative hypoxemia, with or without cardiovascular instability, time is of the essence. The learning session will focus on improving the CRNAs ability to utilize lung ultrasound in rapidly making intraoperative decisions in managing patients with a suspected pneumothorax. The goal of this learning session is to improve knowledge and skill of the anesthesia provider in the utilization of ultrasound to assess for the presence of a pneumothorax. Content will focus on the state of the science supporting the use of lung ultrasound along with identification of the following four sonographic signs: absence of lung sliding, B-lines, lung pulse, and the presence of lung point are required for diagnosis. Content will include a presentation of implementation data from a Doctor of Nursing Practice Scholarly Project titled “Perioperative Utilization of Ultrasound to Assess for Pneumothorax”.
