Hands On Learning Schedule

Saturday, October 9

Safety and Simplicity in Regional Anaesthesia:  Promoting Better Outcomes
Noon – 1 p.m.
Presented by: Konica Minolta, Sponsor
A workshop demonstrating how new technologies in ultrasound and local anaesthetic delivery are helping anaesthesiologists with safer practice in regional anaesthesia, promoting better outcomes for patients and simplifying processes.

POCUS Resident Workshop
3:30 – 5 p.m.
Presented by: ASA
This session is designed to welcome trainees (only) to advanced regional anesthesia and point of-care ultrasound (POCUS) utilizing hands on ultrasonography with standardized patients. The workshop is divided into two tracks through which each attendee will rotate. To engage the learner and maximize educational value, the class will utilize a flipped class model with each registrant being provided reading materials and videos on the topics two weeks prior to the session. There will be little to no “lecture time” during the session, instead spending the entire 90 minutes on scanning. Advanced regional anesthetic techniques will include: plane blocks (pecs, erector spinae), advanced brachial plexus (superior trunk, suprascapular block, infraclavicular), proximal sciatic nerve, and imaging of the neuraxis. POCUS sessions will focus on techniques most useful for new attendings including: gastric ultrasound, lung ultrasound (specifically for pneumothorax), and basic cardiac function.

This session will be repeated on Sunday, October 10 from 1 – 2:30 p.m.

Swimming with Sharks
1:15 – 2:45 p.m.
Presented by: FAER in cooperation with AngelMD
This year’s Swimming with Sharks sessions are provided in cooperation with AngelMD.

Anesthesiology has a long history of innovation, entrepreneurship, and close interactions between academicians, private practitioners, and industry to bring new concepts to the clinical arena and better care for our patients. Using an entertaining format of Shark Tank, this session will present anesthesiologists with ideas for innovations to a panel of experts involved in developing such innovations to market in order to educate the audience regarding the multiple steps involved in the process and provide resources for those who hope to advance the practice through innovation.

There will be two Swimming with Sharks sessions at the event: one for very early-stage startups (back of the napkin ideas/conceptual/pre-seed stage) and one for startups that are seed stage and beyond (e.g., series A).

This session will be repeated on Sunday, October 10 from 10 – 11:30 a.m

Devices with NRFit connectors are not compatible with Luer connectors, reducing the risk of misconnections in Regional Anesthesia, preventing wrong route medication errors that may lead to fatal outcomes. Pajunk will provide an overview on NRFit and best practices for converting your facilities from Luer to NRFit. And, when you’re ready to convert, Pajunk is here to partner with you step-by-step.
