Parkinson’s disease is one of the most common neurodegenerative disorders in the world and is rapidly growing. With the global population living longer there will be more people that develop Parkinson’s like the average person’s life expectancy increases. With no cure and only treatment and management of the symptoms, it is important for research to continue to find better treatment options and potentially a cure. In the world of anesthesia patients with Parkinson’s are more difficult to manage with sedation medication because of the lower dopamine levels the patient has. It is important to stay updated on how to prepare for a patient with Parkinson’s in the operating room.
