Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT)

Authors: Kathryn Dooley, APRN CRNA, Tom Stevens, MD, Joseph Sisk, MD

Surgeons: Borders, Krempl, McKinney, Sanclement, Cannon, Digoy, Woodson, Glade

ORs: 3, 5 and 11

Last Update: February 2, 2019

General Considerations:

  • ORL cases are frequently short with rapid turnover desired

  • If the child is uncooperative during attempts to place a Sat monitor, you may need to proceed with mask induction and then have the OR staff assist with the placement of monitors

  • ENT procedures have a high incidence of airway complications- BE PREPARED!
