This course will enable students to understand various types of surgical procedures. Students will accomplish this by studying surgical anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology and the preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative processes as they relate to each type of surgery. Students will relate the knowledge learned in previous theory courses to specific surgical procedures. The types of cases to be studied will include surgeries performed in Oral/Maxillofacial and Plastic/Reconstructive specialties.
Student Learning Outcomes:
- Correlate the relevant surgical anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology to the surgical procedure.
- Explain diagnostic interventions that are utilized for obtaining a diagnosis.
- Discuss specific factors including tissue replacement materials that are unique to the surgical procedure.
- List the supplies, equipment and instrumentation needed for the procedure.
- Explain the correct order of steps taken during the surgical procedure.
- Discuss the postoperative care of the patient according to the procedure.
- List the wound classification and correlate to wound management.
- Identify surgical procedures according to specialties including Oral/Maxillofacial and Plastic/Reconstructive surgery. See addendum for content of each specialty.
