Kona, Hawaii

On the Big Island, you'll find diverse rainforest ecosystems, tumbling waterfalls, and a warm and compelling culture whose people embody an authentic and heartfelt Aloha Spirit. The Kohala Coast, also referred to as the Gold Coast because of year round sunshine, stretches of beautiful white sand beaches, and spectacular championship golf courses, is located on the west coast of the Big Island, north of the Kona Coast. The Kohala Coast is Hawaii's golf mecca with world-class courses carved out of ancient lava flows, nestled among historical Hawaiian landmarks and fronting some of the most beautiful coastline of the Pacific. Waimea is home to Parker Ranch where fluorescent green pastures give way to lush valleys and a host of vibrant natural greens.

Within short driving distances of your hotel you can play tennis or go horseback riding. Take a hike into spectacular valleys (Waipio Valley and Pololu Valley are a hiker's paradise) and to hidden waterfalls. Explore the Pacific waters with tropical fish and turtles, go deep sea fishing, scuba diving, or boogie boarding. Visit the world's most famous observatories on majestic Mauna Kea (13,796 feet) for incredible scenery and star gazing. Watch for manta rays at night, delight in a helicopter flight over an active volcano, or go on a sunset cruise. Spring for a guided tour and discover places you normally would not find, be allowed to visit, or explore on your own. Walk to ancient fish ponds, sacred Hawaiian sites, heiaus, and petroglyphs on the Big Island.

Puukohola Heiau, built by King Kamehameha in Kawaihae next to Spencer Beach Park, is worth a visit to learn and experience Hawaiian history. Flume the historic Kohala Sugar Plantation irrigation ditch by kayak on a unique ecotour. Last but not least, the Kohala Coast shoreline offers plenty of opportunities for sunbathing, swimming, and watching the Humpback whales. We advise booking a rental car well in advance.

The Fairmont Orchid

Imagine waking up to the sound of waves crashing along the shoreline. and evenings spent on your lanai overlooking the gardens and waterfalls. Relax in the outdoor 'Spa Without Walls,' including the waterfall massage hale (houses) and breathtaking oceanfront massage cabanas. Or discover island-style fun and culture: paddle an outrigger canoe, sail aboard a Hawaiian double-hulled sailing canoe, participate in a cultural hike, learn to weave a coconut leaf basket, and more from the Fairmont Beachboys.

Enjoy snorkeling in the clear waters of Pauoa Bay or a refreshing dip in the 10,000 square foot oceanfront swimming pool, then stargaze from one of the lava whirlpools. Choose to play 36 holes of championship golf at the Francis H. I`i Brown golf course, home of the Senior Skins Game for a decade. The Fairmont Orchid has four highly acclaimed restaurants, including a deli and a Japanese restaurant. Visit the Ocean Bar or the Kahakai Bar for a refreshing tropical libation just steps from the beach.

All rooms offer one king or two queen size beds (based on availability), individual climate control, alarm clock, bathrobes, hair dryer, iron/board, safe, mini-bar/refreshment center, high speed Internet access (fee applies), and pay-per-play Nintendo.

TARGET AUDIENCE

This course is designed for physicians, certified registered nurse anesthetists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and other medical care providers who must maintain state-of-the-art knowledge of the anesthesia specialty or are impacted by it.

PROGRAM PURPOSE

The practitioner of anesthesiology must possess the scientific background for clinical practice; maintain state-of-the-art knowledge of not only the specialty, but also of all additional related disciplines which may impact it; maintain an up-to-the-minute armamentarium of knowledge and skills for the selection and use of complex equipment, pharmacological agents, and procedures necessary for the provision of quality patient care; manage self and colleagues to function toward common goals in the clinical setting, the clinical and educational institutions, and the community in which the practice resides; serve as an expert in matters involving health care delivery; serve as an informed manager of clinical and educational services provided, including the acquisition and distribution of resources necessary in meeting professional goals; and provide assistance with and support of other service providers, departments, institutions, and organizations dependent upon the professional expertise of the practitioner. Presentations are designed to facilitate the healthcare provider in reviewing, updating, and/or expanding knowledge and abilities in one or more of these areas vital to the practicing professional.

OBJECTIVES

At the conclusion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

Apply the pertinent physical and behavioral sciences - to include but not be limited to advanced anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, chemistry, physics, psychology, and social sciences - as they impact and are affected by the planning, delivery, and monitoring of anesthesia and related services inherent in the anesthesia professions.

Explain the selection, dosing considerations with methods of administration, safe use, and contraindications and precautions of presented pharmacological agents through the understanding of their physico-chemical properties, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, updated uses, and more recently developed additional, related, and similar drugs.

Outline comprehensive management plans for the group of patients discussed, whether related in age, physical status, cultural background, invasive procedure, anesthetic or analgesic requirements, clinical setting, adverse reactions, and/or goals of care.

Apply the principles of safety and asepsis in the performance of anesthetic procedures and administrations, equipment use, and other applications encountered during the provision of anesthesia and analgesia whether in the surgical unit, the labor and delivery suite, the pain management clinic, or other more remote location of anesthetizing services.

Incorporate the appropriate recommendations and/or requirements of pertinent external organizations, institutions, and professional groups - recognized as serving as the authority for and/or holding the responsibility to compile and approve such tenets - in the provision of anesthesia and related services, whether medical, legal, philosophical, ethical, or health care management standards.

Apply the new techniques in the clinical setting of the participant.
