This course is intended for anesthesiologists, internists, surgeons, and allied health providers seeking expert, evidence-based guidance on areas of critical concern in the care of the bariatric surgical patient.
The International Society for the Perioperative Care of the Obese Patient (ISPCOP) and ASMBS have joined forces to present a team approach to evidence-based perioperative care of the bariatric patient. The emphasis will be placed on pre-and post-operative care questions where the potential for gains in patient safety, outcomes, and satisfaction are greatest.
