What is a seminar
The Association is the UK’s leading provider of postgraduate education for all pathways into Anaesthesia. The Association’s seminar programme features leading experts in anaesthesia, critical care and pain medicine presenting the latest information and thinking on a variety of key anaesthesia topics. Our seminars are designed to focus on a specific field of interest within anaesthesia and help to build on specialist interests. They offer an intimate learning environment, with a maximum of 50 delegates attending each. Keeping the numbers low encourages delegate and faculty interaction.
About this seminar
Join us for this unique seminar discussing the latest techniques for monitoring of the entire triad of anaesthesia: hypnosis, paralysis and analgesia.
This seminar offers a series of talks, interactive discussion and workshops with equipment demonstration, and case presentations from expert clinicians.
The Association of Anaesthetists Standards of Monitoring (2021) provides the backdrop to the seminar content. Quantitative neuromuscular blockade (NMB) monitoring should be used for all patients being ‘paralysed’. The evidence, the background, the types of quantitative modalities and the use of an NMB strategy will be presented. pEEG monitoring should be used with TIVA and paralysis, but the value of much wider use is highlighted. The practical aspects of a range of monitoring products will be described and demonstrated. The novel concept of nociceptive monitoring will be presented.
Aimed at anaesthetists with an interest in medical hypnosis. Consultant anaesthetists, trainee anaesthetists, SAS anaeathetists.
