“Eternal Vigilance” being the motto of an anesthesiologist, It is imperative for each of us to train and retrain our technical and non-technical skills; hone our senses for situational awareness; accumulate knowledge based on didactic teaching; demonstrate an expertise in decision making and team management.

All practicing anaesthesiologists and postgraduate anesthesiology students are welcome to participate in this workshop. Participants will be required to participate in both individual and group scenarios consisting of common clinical operating theatre emergencies and critical incident scenarios. An introduction will be given about the high fidelity mannequins used and the course of the workshop. A demo will be rehearsed with eminent faculty trained in simulation based medical education. You will be debriefed about the scenarios, split into groups and allowed to take part in a simulation based learning atmosphere. Later the enacted time stamped videos will be replayed followed by an interactive question hour.

This workshop provides the opportunity to learn from a friendly, non-judgemental expert team of senior practicing anaesthesiologists who share a common passion for medical education. This session will provide excellent opportunity for the delegates to reflect upon their own experience both as an individual and as a team. We aim to empower you with the skills and thought processes to continuously assess, evaluate, decide and exhibit efficient problem management.

The rise of Ultrasound as an essential tool for the anesthesiologist has ushered in an era of image guided interventional procedures albeit the learning curves. In lieu of the current trend this workshop has been designed to deliver an immersive experience in Ultra Sound training in the field of regional anesthesia. Participants will gain a thorough knowledge of ultrasound physics, knobology, relevant anatomy and sono-anatomy associated with commonly performed regional anesthesia techniques. The anatomy will be demonstrated on live volunteers. Attendees will learn needle guidance techniques with ultrasound phantoms. The workshop will include case presentations, interactive discussions and didactic sessions. Importance will be given to Needle-eye-coordination practice and hands-on sono anatomy knowledge. All sessions will be video aided followed by Pre-and Post-knowledge assessment test.

Critical care in the perioperative setting has always demanded more from the anesthesiologist in terms point of care testing, rapid diagnostics, real time image guided interventions and tailored treatment protocol. With the latest addition of ultrasound in the armamentarium of the anesthesiologist, it has become the sine qua non for bedside clinical assessment, vascular access, adjunct to hemodynamic monitoring and procedural guidance.

This workshop aims to introduce you to the scope of ultrasound in the perioperative setting including critical care and trauma. You can experience firsthand, the power of this amazing tool. This workshop will explore the various applications of ultrasound currently in use with the expert guidance of a team of experienced intensivists.

We promise a module based learning program with hands-on training in live volunteers and blue phantoms. The topics to be covered will include and not limited to:

  • • Bedside ultrasound – basics
  • • Ultrasound for hemodynamic assessment and monitoring- RUSH protocol
  • • EFAST
  • • Basic bedside ECHO
  • • Ultrasound for lung assessment- BLUE & FALLS protocol
  • • Ultrasound for vascular access – Central venous and Arterial cannulation
  • • Ultrasound for bedside interventions – pleural tapping, biopsy, percutaneous tracheostomy, etc.
