Ultrasound Workshop

After completing this hands-on workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify airway structures with ultrasound
  2. Recognize the air-tissue border from tongue to mid-trachea and at the pleural level
  3. Localize the trachea by combining palpation of the sternal bone with ultrasonography

Front of neck access

This workshop has been approved by the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) as an emergency response activity (recognition code ER-15-CICO-013).

The syllabus for this workshop will include discussion and hands-on experience in managing a “cannot intubate, cannot oxygenate” (CICO) crisis. The content of this workshop will include:-

  1. Strategies to minimise the incidence of a CICO situation
  2. Discussion of risk factors contributing to CICO
  3. Recognition of CICO
  4. Discussion and application of an emergency CICO algorithm
  5. Discussion concerning the optimum percutaneous emergency airway access (PEAA) technique
  6. Emergency supraglottic airway management
    1. Optimum bag mask ventilation
    2. Emergency supraglottic airway ventilation
    3. Use of muscle relaxants
    4. Oxygen therapy
  7. Techniques to optimise transition from supraglottic to infraglottic emergency airway management
  8. Percutaneous emergency airway access techniques
    1. Positioning
    2. Percutaneous identification of landmarks (anatomy, ultrasound)
    3. Preparation
      1. Team
      2. Patient
      3. Equipment
      4. Practitioner
    4. Performance of percutaneous emergency airway access
  9. Emergency transtracheal ventilation
  10. Establishing a definitive airway and after-care
  11. Recognition of non-technical factors associated with CICO scenarios and strategies to overcome them

Paediatric Workshop

Paediatric Airways
Lead: Dr Narasimhan Jagannathan
Liffey Meeting Room 1

This workshop will provide hands on practice with a variety of airway management devices. We will highlight ideal techniques for a variety of challenging airways and describe their advantages and pitfalls in paediatric airway management.

The attendee will be able to :

  1. Describe the strengths and limitations of various airway devices and techniques to manage the difficult paediatric airway
  2. Have hands-on practice with numerous airway devices
09:00 - 10:30
Thoracic Workshop

Lead: Dr Edmond Cohen, New York, USA
Liffey Hall 1

The workshop will consist of "Hands on Demonstration" of various stations equipped with fiberoptic bronchoscope, video cameras, mannequins, lung models, Double lumen tubes and endobronchial blockers. In addition adult and pediatric simulators will be available for management of crises during thoracic anesthesia. A torso model would be at used for the practice of thoracic epidural. Finally there will be a live model for practicing paravertebral block with sonography.
