ACLS RESUSCITATION SKILLS

Minimum Participants: 6 pax per session/ Maximum Participants: 18 pax per session

Simulator-based scenarios cover arrest algorithms, CPR and use of automated andmanual defibrillators in patients of all ages. Further topics include synchronised cardioversion and transcutaneous pacing. This workshop is delivered by Resuscitation Skills, who have more than a decade’s experience in teaching ACLS.  Pre-reading is required.

REGIONAL ANAESTHESIA

Maximum Participants: 15 (advanced) and 20 (buffet) pax per session

Advanced Regional: Chest Wall. Steve Clendenen of the Mayo Clinic will demonstrate PECS, paravertebral and serratus plane blocks. There will also be an opportunity to discuss ‘hot topics’ such as rib fracture analgesia. Local expert faculty and multiple scanning stations ensure a ‘hands on’ workshop with individualised tuition.

Advanced Regional: Abdominal Wall. Struggling to find a good alternative to the thoracic epidural? Steve Clendenen of the Mayo Clinic leads this workshop which covers insertion and management of quadratus lumborum, rectus sheath and subcostal TAP blocks. Both single shot and catheter techniques will be covered. Local expert faculty and multiple scanning stations ensure a ‘hands on’ workshop with individualised tuition.

Advanced Regional: Hip & Lumbar Plexus. Plenary speaker Dave Auyong leads this advanced workshop covering US- guided blockade of the lumbar plexus, fascia iliaca and proximal sciatic nerve. Local expert faculty and multiple scanning stations ensure a ‘hands on’ workshop with individualised tuition.

Regional: ‘the Regional Buffet’. We’ll give you expert tuition on any ‘core knowledge’ block you like; browse between four stations covering upper limb, lower limb, trunk, and catheter techniques. This is the perfect workshop for the occasional regionalist or for anyone looking to upskill in a couple of key areas. Learn practical tips from people who do these blocks ‘all the time’.

ANAPHYLAXIS

Maximum Participants: 18 pax per session

This half day workshop is recognised by the ANZCA CPD program for ‘Emergency response – Anaphylaxis’ but offers so much more – including adult/paediatric scenarios, high fidelity simulation, a low faculty-delegate ratio and an ‘ask the experts’ discussion session. This session takes place at the Auckland City Hospital Clinical Skills Centre – a 10-minute walk (or 3 minute bus ride) from the meeting venue.

AIRWAY: GENERAL (A B C)/ PAEDS/ FIBREOPTIC BRONCHOSCOPY

Maximum Participants: 12 pax per session

Airway: General (A B C). An international team of airway experts will be on hand to discuss a variety of complex airway scenarios. Basic and advanced airway management techniques will be demonstrated including supraglottic airways and videolaryngoscopy. Participants will be able to practice techniques with an extensive range of modern equipment.

Airway: Paediatrics. This workshop will be an excellent refresher in paediatric airway management, especially for the occasional paediatric anaesthetist. The workshop will cover basic and advanced airway management for children, including using the fibreoptic scope and participants will benefit from practicing techniques on paediatric mannikins.

Airway: Fibreoptic bronchoscopy. Workshop convenor Paul Baker and his team are internationally renowned for fibreoptic teaching and research. All elements of awake and asleep fibreoptic techniques will be taught and practised. Participants can improve their dexterity with the Orsim simulator and gain expert tips on a range of topics including patient preparation, sedation and trainee supervision.

AIRWAY: CICO

Maximum Participants: 12 pax per session

Airway: Can’t Intubate, Can’t Oxygenate. How confident would you feel establishing a ‘front of neck’ airway? A simple approach to a cricothyroidotomy will be taught and practised, as per ANZCA and DAS guidelines. This workshop will equip you with the skills to manage all aspects of the scenario and is recognized by the ANZCA CDP program for ‘Emergency response – CICO’.
