VASCULAR ACCESS, ADVANCED INVASIVE PROCEDURES, SURGICAL AIRWAY WITH ADVANCED AIRWAY AND ULTRASOUND

A mastery of invasive procedures is fundamental to resuscitation, emergency patient stabilisation and patient safety and outcome. These invasive procedures often required to save a life may not be utilised optimally due to inadequate exposure, lack of practice, concern for complications, lack of familiarity, or advances in equipment or technique since one’s training. You will be joining internationally renowned faculty in a closely supervised environment with hands on labs that are designed to improve practitioner competence at invasive procedures. The lab utilises fresh, unembalmed cadavers, which is the anatomy of an actual patient. Each station will also utilise ultrasound machines to further their procedural skills to the next level. Advanced multimedia will assist the learner in viewing procedures in real time. The afternoon session focuses on vascular access, advanced invasive procedures, surgical and advanced airway, and advanced ultrasound skills.
