Comprehensive Anesthetic Management of the Child and Teenager with Mucopolysaccharidosis

Inscripciones cerradas


Improvement and standardization of the comprehensive anaesthetic management of the child and teenager with MPS during surgical interventions and in other situations requiring sedation.

Dirigido a

Anesthesiologists and pediatricians.


  • To acquire general concept son the clinical characteristics of the MPS, its clinical evolution and therapeutic management.
  • To understand the respiratory and cardiac manifestations of this group of diseases.
  • To learn a systematic pre-op evaluation more adapted for the specific characteristics of this type of patients.
  • To acquire the necessary skills to perform specific vascular procedures (i.e., cannulation) and respiratory procedures (i.e., airway management, assisted ventilation) in patients with MPS.
  • To learn different modalities of anesthesia applied to patients with MPS.
  • To understand the management of common hemodynamic and respiratory complications.
  • To acquire strategies to provide post-anesthesia care adapted to patients with MPS.
