Workshops

  • Pre-registration is required and attendance is limited to 42 participants per each workshop.

    This workshop aims at teaching anaesthesiologists about the most common and also the newest devices for lung separation in the operation room and intensive care unit, both in adults and paediatric patients. Also, attendees will learn different ways of fighting pain therapy using thoracic regional techniques and treating hypoxemia during one-lung ventilation.

    There will be two introductory talks. Following those short talks, attendees will practice the use of fiberscopes and several devices for lung separation in adults and children in 4 stations. Regional anaesthesia techniques will be taught in 2 further stations, also with use of ultrasound. In the last station, attendees will have the chance to practice treatment of hypoxemia during one-lung ventilation using lung recruitments manoeuvres, continuous positive airway pressure, jet-ventilation and pharmacological interventions.

    This workshop is for anaesthesiologists with minimal, short and mid-large experience in thoracic anaesthesia and lung separation. The workshop is designed for resident and staff anaesthesiologists who wish to enhance their skills in providing lung separation with different techniques in order to cover all possible clinical situations.

    The “Thoracic Workshop” is organised by the ESA scientific subcommittee on respiration and airway management and the ESA scientific subcommittee on regional anaesthesia.
    Workshop is repeated 2 times:
    Sun 4 June: 9:00 – 12:00
    Sun 4 June: 14:00 -17:00

  • Pre-registration is required and attendance is limited to 36 participants per workshop.

    This 3-hour workshop is aiming at teaching the core skills needed to bring the benefits of regional anaesthesia to patients. Participants should leave this workshop having acquired the skills necessary to perform ultrasonography of the most commonly blocked nerves. In addition, participants will acquire the skills necessary to advance a needle toward a target using real time ultrasound guidance in gelatine phantoms.

    This workshop is a great opportunity to interact and share experience with renown experts in the field of regional anaesthesia. Participants will be taught to systematically scan and interpret ultrasound images of anatomical areas relevant to various blocks. Popular blocks such as interscalene and axillary brachial plexus blocks, as well as more recent blocks such as the serratus plane, adductor canal and quadratus lumborum block will be demonstrated.

    Principles of small-group teaching (6 person per group) will be employed in order to make it a valuable experience for all participants. There will be a total of 6 stations and participants will spend 25 minutes per station.

    This workshop is designed for residents, fellows, practitioners interested in advancing their skills in ultrasound-guided regional anaesthesia. 

    This workshop is organised by the ESA Scientific Subcommittee on Regional Anaesthesia.

    Workshop is repeated 6 times:
    Sat 03 June, Sun 04 June & Mon 05 June:
    – 9:00 – 12:00
    – 14:00 -17:00

     

     

  • Four different 1.5-hour sessions will be available and focus on different clinical topics:

    1. “Airway management”
    2. “Life-threatening operating room crisis”
    3. “Challenges in mechanical ventilation in the ICU patient”
    4. “ Challenging cases in the trauma room”

    PARTICIPANTS CAN REGISTER FOR ONE OR MORE SESSIONS. Sessions are limited to 8 participants.

    During these 1.5-hour sessions, one or two challenging clinical scenarios (on a specific clinical topic, see list above) will be reproduced in a fully immersive environment. Delegates will have the opportunities to manage and/or observe these clinical cases. After each scenario, skilled instructors will provide constructive feedback during a debriefing session in which all delegates will take part.

    Learning Objectives

    During these sessions, delegates will:

    • Understand the importance of non-technical skills
    • Review and improve their knowledge in patient management in the clinical topic of the session (algorithms and clinical guidelines)
    • Practice and improve technical skills related to the clinical topic of the session

    Target Audience: Anyone interested in improving their skills and knowledge in crisis management and/or procedural skills in the various topics offered during these 1.5-hour sessions

    The workshops will take place takes place during Euroanaesthesia 2017 Congress at Palexpo, Geneva.

    Pre-registration is required and attendance is limited to 8 participants per sessions. Each person can attend more sessions.

  • Simulation-based procedural skills workshops:

    Four different 1.5-hour hands-on sessions will be available and focus on different procedural skills.

    During these 1.5-hour sessions, hands-on training will be provided on a specific clinical procedure (See list above). Instructors will demonstrate the skills and then guide, observe, and provide feedback to the participants while they perform the procedure on their own. During the sessions a variety of live model, virtual reality simulators, part task trainers and ultrasound machines will be available, as well as cutting edge multimedia support.

    PARTICIPANT CAN REGISTER FOR ONE OR MORE SESSIONS. Participants are limited to 16 per session.
