WELCOME TO YOUR 2-WEEKS ANESTHESIA FOR ABDOMINAL SURGERY ROTATION!

The assignments below indicate which section you should read that evening/night in order to be prepared to discuss the topic following day in the OR. Of course if you are scheduled to do a Whipple on your first day feel free to change the order and read up on whipples the night before instead of the assigned section- we want you to look like a superstar too!

In the outline below, numbered sections refer to “MAJOR” topics, lettered sections refer to “SUB-TOPICS” some of which are included within the major topic (see next page for details).
