ESRA Workshops

Date: 25- 26​​ May 2018

​Venue: Madrid, Spain

  • You will practice the regional anaesthesia techniques with Thiel cadavers. The Thiel cadaver have a good flexibility, tissue elasticity, color, texture, ultrasound images, similar like a human model ideal to use for some regional anesthesia ultrasound guide training
  • More than 20 hours of intensive practice.
  • Thiel cadavers; one per group of work.  
  • Workshops will be 95% practical.
  • We use the Spin-up Learning System (Training method). The New approach for learning of the Ultrasound-Guided regional anesthesia techniques.
  • This is an innovative methodology of teaching that motivates students to do research and debate through the practice of regional anesthesia training in 360º
  • In our courses the students learn and practice ultrasound regional anesthesia, but they do not come to the course to see how others do it. All students go through the work stations on several occasions; having the opportunity to build their pyramidal knowledge, correct their errors, bring up their concerns. We have a continuous feedback, and our professors teach one by one. In our course we expect the best professors in Spain.
  • Lectures: We use lecture only when it is necessary. Students prefer more practical workshop than theory lectures.
  • Authorization to take photos. As part of our internal police, all participants in courses organized by UltraDissection Group can take photos or ask the course organizers to take the photos they'd like. We ask, however, that in public or professional use, they provide full credit to our work: date, course name, and location (Autonomous University of Madrid). We think t​hat this possibility is unique for the participants since it allows them to use the photos in their research and in published articles.
