What are this month’s beta blocker guidelines?

I (Dr. Ellis) am Anesthesia Camp Course Director.  I gave Grand Rounds at NYU last month.

I talked about Perioperative Beta Blockade; click here for a PDF of the slides shown.

Your feedback, of course is appreciated.

Does your institution have automated reminders to continue perioperative beta blockade in paients taking them chronically?

Several new studies suggest that while beta blockade may protect in the absence of hemorrhage, it may harm when bleeding increases.
