Interested in organising a seminar?

We're looking for new seminar material, both lecture and workshop based.

It is with regret we have had to postpone the following seminar, in light of the on going global COVID-19 situation. We will be in touch shortly with registered delegates and faculty on this seminar. We are reviewing the events calendar for suitability for pre-recording and delivery online. We will update the website with details as soon as we can.

About this seminarFollowing the success of the Ultrasound of the Spine (USSPINE) workshop at Annual Congress 2019, this condensed workshop aims to provide a basic overview on the benefits in performing ultrasound scanning to the back to facilitate lumbar punctures, spinal & epidural insertions.  It is suitable for all grades of anaesthetists & physicians. The day will feature Lectures in the morning, and hands-on demonstrations in the afternoon. This is a perfect opportunity to build up your confidence!

Topics include: 
•Setting up the ultrasound machine
•Evidence behind Ultrasound of the Spine for Central Neuraxial Blocks & Lumbar Punctures
•Lumbar Spine Sonography
•Difficult scans
•Live scanning demonstrations
•Hands on practical sessions - Delegates will rotate between the four scanning stations

The confirmed programme will be available shortly.
