WORKSHOP ON LONG TERM VASCULAR ACCESS (LTVA)

COORDINATORS: DR BASANTH RAYANI, DR VIBHAVARI NAIK

Anaesthesiologists are considered experts in vascular access. There are numerous devices available for long term vascular access used in both oncology as well as other patients. We need to well-verse ourselves with these advanced vascular devices. This workshop aims at training in the placement and maintenance of LTVA devices.

TARGET AUDIENCE:

  • Oncoanaesthesiologists
  • Occassional oncoanaesthesiologists
  • Post graduates/ Fellows interested in learning advanced vascular access procedures

PROGRAM CONTENT:

  • LTVA – Types, devices, device selection for right patient, insertion techniques (Simulation on mannequins and videos), tricks, trouble-shooting, complications and their management. We will include PICC lines, Midline catheters, Hickman catheters, Dialysis catheters and Implantable ports.

WHEN: 10 am – 3 pm
WHERE: Auditorium, Basavatarakam Indo-American Cancer Hospital and Research Centre, Banjara hills
CHARGES: Rs 3000

WORKSHOP ON POCUS

COORDINATORS: DR VENUGOPAL KULKARNI, DR SUNJOY VERMA, DR RAJA VISWANATH

POCUS an acronym for Point Of Care Ultrasound is increasingly used in daily clinical practice with positive impact on the patients’ outcome. Ultrasound has emerged as a new effective tool in the armamentarium of the anaesthetists for perioperative management of the patients undergoing cancer surgery. POCUS in particular has considerably reduced the time required to arrive at a working diagnosis and has increased the safety profile of invasive procedures. Hemodynamic instability can be due to myocardial depression or failure, vasodilatation or vasoplegia and/or inadequate intravascular volume. Inadequate gas exchange can be due to various causes like collapse-consolidation, pleural effusion or pneumothorax. POCUS comes in handy in these situations to quickly and objectively assess and intervene. Physics underlying image formation is interesting, the knowledge of which helps not only optimizing the images but also to understand the formation of artifacts and their interpretation. We in this POCUS workshop will cover these aspects during hands-on training on hemodynamic assessment by looking at transthoracic echocardiographic views, lung ultrasound, abdominal ultrasound, venous Doppler for thrombosis and few more interactive sessions.

TARGET AUDIENCE:

  • Onco-anaesthesiologists
  • Critical Care consultants involved in peri-operative management of oncological patients
  • Occasional Onco-anaesthesiologists
  • Postgraduates / Fellows

PROGRAM CONTENT:

  • Didactic sessions on ultrasonic principles, transthoracic echocardiography views, lung ultrasound, abdominal ultrasound and venous Doppler.
  • Hands-on training(HOT) stations with either volunteers, simulators and/or pre-recorded loops
  • Interactive sessions

WHEN: 9 am - 5 pm
WHERE: Citizens Hospital, Nallagandla
CHARGES: Rs 4000
