Shriner's Childrens Hospital

The Shriners Hospital provides specialized care to children of all ages.  Anesthesia is provided in the 2-room operating suite with emphasis on perioperative pain management.

Following completion of their PGY-1 year, residents will have a minimum one-month rotation as either a PGY-2 or PGY-3 at the Lexington Shriners Hospital for Children (SHC). In general, residents return for an additional one or two month rotation as a PGY-4 (CA-3). Goals and objectives for CA-3, besides including a deeper understanding and greater responsibility than PGY-2/PGY-3 requirements below, closely match those goals for CA-3 at the University of Kentucky (attached as an addendum). After completing their PGY2/3 rotation at the SHC, residents will successfully be able to:

  • Properly evaluate and prepare patients and their caregivers for surgery, to include taking a History and Physical, and preparing patients and caregivers both psychologically and pharmacologically as indicated.
  • Conduct appropriate, safe perioperative anesthetic care in pediatric patients having elective orthopedic surgery.
  • Recognize appropriate courses of action for perioperative critical events encountered in pediatric orthopedic surgery.
  • Understand the differences in a small freestanding hospital and its relationship to the University of Kentucky Hospital.

Houston

CA3 residents and CA2 residents who have completed their 2 required months of CT anesthesia can choose to spend an elective month at the Methodist Hospital -DeBakey Heart & Vascular Center in Houston to obtain additional experience in cardiac anesthesia.

During the first two weeks, residents are generally staffed 1:1 by faculty to orient them to the practice of cardiovascular and thoracic anesthesiology and the principles of patient management in cardiovascular and thoracic cases.  In the subsequent months, residents will be provided progressive independence in patient management, to include:

  • placement of central lines and PA catheters
  • determinations of induction
  • maintenance agents
  • management of hemodynamic events during major CV cases
  • determinations of parameters in transfusion and coagulation.

Residents are expected to provide an individually tailored plan for managing each patient - to be reviewed and confirmed by faculty prior to institution.  By the end of the rotation, residents are expected to be able to demonstrate competence in the general management of routine cardiovascular and thoracic cases (routine pump cases, AAA, ABF, thoracotomies) without immediate on-site supervision by faculty at all times.
