Pre-Operative Assessment and Optimization of Paediatric Patients
Paediatric patients provide multiple challenges. Most children that present for surgery are fit and healthy. However, it is important to identify at the preoperative assessment, those that may have an increased risk of intraoperative complications. This requires a structured approach to the preoperative assessment, and this will enable the anaesthetist to construct a safe plan for their perioperative management.

During this webinar, we will review the recent APRICOT trial and use their outcomes to focus on areas of the preoperative assessment that may predict perioperative complications in the paediatric population.

Learning outcomes:
1. Understand the importance of the preoperative assessment to optimize the perioperative management of paediatric patients.
2. Identify factors in the preoperative assessment that may predict adverse events in the perioperative period
3. Develop an action plan for the child presenting with a runny nose

Dr Ian Hogarth
Anaesthetist @Anaesthetic Services, Richmond, Australia
Dr Ian Hogarth graduated from the University of Melbourne in 1989. Following residency at The Western Hospital he commenced anaesthesia training at The Austin Hospital in 1993. After completion in 1998 he then spent 3 years in the UK as Consultant in Anaesthesia (Greenwich District Hospital, London 1999-2001, Guy’s and St.Thomas’ Hospital, London 2001). He returned to Australia to a full-time public position as staff specialist in Anaesthesia at The Northern Hospital in Epping. This busy role saw the provision of anaesthesia for a wide range of surgical specialties (General Surgery, Thoracics, Vascular, Obstetrics, Gynaecology, Urology, Plastics) as well as teaching a vast number of anaesthetic trainees that rotate through The Northern at various stages of the training program. A change of pace in 2019 saw Ian reduce and relocate his public work to Kyneton, to facilitate the provision of services in a regional area.
