To make a safe anesthetic plan, a nurse anesthetist must evaluate a patient's medical history. Anesthesia providers will encounter patients with COPD requiring anesthesia. It is necessary that nurse anesthesia understands the pathophysiology and peri-operative considerations to provide safe care to COPD patients. The poster provided can be a tool to review the pathophysiology and nursing implementations of COPD. It provides information for the nurse anesthetist to apply to the perioperative setting to improve patients’ surgery outcomes. An anesthetist is always striving to provide quality anesthesia care to their patients. COPD patients require extra preparation to prevent complications from arising during surgery.
