On This Episode:

As we continue our case series on these clinical episodes, we’re going to start out by talking about surgical procedures and pathology related to the endocrine system.

Today’s episode will focus on a thyroidectomy, which is the surgical removal of all or part of the thyroid gland. We’ll take you through a case and walk you through the essential points of what you need to know.

Here are some of the things you’ll learn on this show:

  • Airway management tools and what should you pay attention to. (2:46)
  • Pre-operative pharmacological management. (6:56)
  • Pre-operative thyroid tests that can be given. (9:48)
  • Hemodynamics during a thyroidectomy. (12:09)
  • What should you look for in terms of thyroid storm. (17:49)
  • Deep vs awake extubation. (20:46)
  • What happens if someone develops a hematoma. (24:52)

Check it out the interview at the top of the page and use the timestamps to help you navigate through the many topics we discussed.

 


With all of these three factors – the potential for increased thyroid hormone, significant physiologic stimulation, and a younger person – the anesthetic requirements are very many times increased.

I started listening to this podcast religiously early on in my CRNA journey, a year before applying to CRNA school. The content in this podcast was one of my most helpful resources for getting into my first choice school, Wake Forest! It has also been a huge motivator for getting involved with the AANA now and throughout my career. I highly recommend this podcast to every prospective CRNA I meet.
