Workshops

  • As space is limited, pre-registration and payment is required in order to secure your place.
  • Accreditation for the Euroanaesthesia 2018 Congress will be requested to the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME – Institution of the UEMS).
  • Workshops are not included in the congress fee.

 

  • Learning objectives: 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.

    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.

    Target audience: 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.

    The 3-hour “Ultrasound guided regional anaesthesia workshop” takes place during Euroanaesthesia 2018 at Bella Center, Copenhagen.

  • Learning objectives: 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.

    Target Audience: The target audience consists of 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.

  • This 2 hour workshop is aimed at teaching how TCI pumps work and how they differ from manually controlled infusion pumps and provides clinical examples and strategies for using TCI and other infusion devices, and current practice guidelines and monitoring for safe sedation.

    There will be 4 workstations with a maximum of 60 attendees divided into 4 equal groups, participants will spend 25 minutes at each workstation.  There will be a question and answer session at the end of the workshop.

    Learning objectives: Participants should leave the workshop with the following skills:  be able to set up TCI pumps and drug administration lines, appreciate the principles and approach needed to optimise safety and prevent errors.  Know the differences between TCI pumps and manually controlled infusion pumps and how to deliver safe sedation with both.  Understand the basic principles of how TCI pumps use pharmacokinetic models to calculate infusion rate.  Understand the ability to use TCI pumps to titrate sedation to effect, appreciate the large variability of sedation requirements in various settings and be aware of safe standard in monitoring and conduct of procedural sedation.  Learn the tools necessary to find the best TCI drug combinations that will result in patients who are adequately sedated but still breathing, be able to use computer simulations of drug interactions to appreciate the magnitude and nature of these interactions, learn which drug combinations offer the optimal clinical conditions.

    Target audience: Residents, fellows and practitioners interested in advancing their skills in IV infusions for sedation
