Premier CE course

Michael Storm

Hepatobiliary Anesthesia is part of Back to the Basics. These courses focus on the basic and advanced anesthesia knowledge we have stored somewhere deep in our brain, although it may sometimes be hard to recall when asked by students. Hepatobiliary Anesthesia covers liver anatomy and physiology and mix in a bit of anesthesia along the way.

What's In It?

The hepatobiliary course covers the liver and the bile system. These systems are essential for so many functions in our body, from metabolism to excretion of drugs, to having adequate coagulation, to immunologic defense, to so much more.

The course is an in-depth overview of these functions and covers the anatomy, blood flow, anesthetic effects on the liver, and liver function testing. All in all, this course will give you the necessary insight into the liver you need.

Will I Benefit?

The liver and bile system is significant for the well-being of the body. An in-depth understanding of these systems will better allow the nurse anesthesiologist to treat patients with less than optimal liver function and what to expect during anesthesia for these patients.
The standard anesthesia textbooks do not always cover the hepatobiliary area in great detail, or at the very least, the information of very scattered over hundreds of pages. Michael Storm, DNAP, CRNA, consolidates all this information in this condensed course and makes the material seem easy.

Michael Storm

Michael Storm, DNAP, CRNA, graduated from the University of South Carolina Nurse Anesthesia Program in 2005 with his Master of Nurse Anesthesia. In 2016 he earned his Doctorate of Nurse Anesthesia Practice from Missouri State University.

Since 2006 he has been helping anesthesia students pass boards after starting a review course business in 2006 along with his two study partners. In 2013 he went on his own with Storm Anesthesia. Michael teaches anesthesia residents in the OR and has helped numerous nurse anesthesia residents pass the NCE doing his on-site or virtual review courses. Michael has a passion for teaching, keeping his nose in the textbooks, and has stopped counting the number of textbooks in his library, but rather measuring by feet, currently >16 feet of textbooks. Yep, he is a little nerdy!

Michael loves snow skiing and is a fully certified PSIA ski instructor outside anesthesia. He feels relaxed when sailing on Lake Murray in their 25-foot sailboat, enjoys hikes in the mountains or anywhere outdoors, and pre-pandemic, you could find him and his wonderful wife Annette traveling all over.
