About this online seminar

Orthopaedic anaesthesia is practiced by almost all anaesthetists. Some areas have become more specialist. Regional anaesthetic techniques have seen changes. Many patients have co-morbid conditions.
Topics include the management of cardiac patients with valvular disease, pacing devices and anticoagulation; analgesia for knee surgery; issues for spinal surgery including protection of the spinal cord; tips on using ultrasound effectively to optimise blocks, as well as the pros and cons of general versus regional anaesthesia for orthopaedics.
All the speakers are experts in their respective fields and have undertaken original research. You will be updated on current trends in anaesthesia for orthopaedic surgery.

Learning objectives:
  1. Assessment and management of patients with cardiac disease
  2. Management of coagulation during surgery
  3. Anaesthesia for specific orthopaedic operations
  4. The use of regional anaesthesia for surgery
  5. The use of ultrasound for optimisation of nerve block
