1st Trainees Workshop

ABOUT THE 1ST TRAINEES WORKSHOP

Date: 19-20 May 2017
Location: Porto, Portugal

Regional anesthesia is becoming more and more popular.
With ultrasound guidance (USG), its indications have increased, its application in regional anesthesia has become attractive and complication rate has improved.
Regional anesthesia techniques can be performed for anesthesia and as part of a multimodal analgesia plan.
It is safe application, however, requires high levels of expertise and practice.
Several regional anesthesia courses and workshops are available, but our concept is to offer a high quality learning experience with scenario simulations at low cost.

OBJECTIVES

After participating in this educational event, learners should be able to:

  • Address individual needs in compliance with their Continuous Professional Development (CPD) plan. 
  • Demonstrate regional anesthesia techniques as part of a multimodal analgesia plan. 
  • Identify the big five: interscalene block, axillary plexus block, sciatic block, femoral nerve and TAP block. 
  • Demonstrate USG and NS regional anesthesia techniques. 
  • Examine simulation of emergency (hypertensive pneumothorax, total spinal, LAST, etc.).
  • Analyse postdural puncture headache.
  • Distinguish prolonged motor/sensitive block.
  • Describe epidural hematoma/abscess.
  • Identify compartment syndrome.
  • Examine peripheral nerve catheter problem in the ward.
