The scope of anesthetic practice continues to expand outside of the operating room; however, there are significant logistical and human factor challenges to maintaining a safe anesthetic environment outside of the operating room. The purpose of this 60 minute panel is to discuss perioperative morbidity and mortality after non-operative room procedures, as well as to identify some of the challenges to patient safety outside of the operating room, including location, equipment, personnel, and procedure. Finally, the panel will discuss ways to identify patient populations at increased risk for complications in non-OR locations.
