HANDS-ON SKILLS TRAINING - SIX LIVE WORKSHOPS

INTERACTIVE WORKSHOPS 

Delegates attending Acute & General Medicine can combine both seminar-based learning with an extended hands-on training programme, across a range of practical workshops – providing a unique learning experience.

Whether you’re experienced or need to brush-up on your knowledge, the hands-on training workshops will be the perfect way to practice your skills and you will come away from the conference with fact-based and practical new skills you can implement straight way.

Non-Invasive Ventilation, Ultrasound and ECG skills training is available to all delegates as part of their conference package. 

Ultrasound
NIV

NIV Training

2017 visitors to the NIV Zone will be able to experience hands on application of NIV for respiratory failure. The sessions covered presenting issues in Type I and Type II respiratory failure and how to set up NIV for each of these scenarios. 

Glyn Stephens, Account Manager, Philips Healthcare, said their sessions were heavily booked: "This is a very well attended event with a very keen and motivated audience."

NIV therapy is being used increasingly in the acute sector replacing the need to put patients on ventilators. Many doctors had received no training at all in NIV and were very interested to see how it worked and to take the opportunity to handle the equipment themselves.

Delegates can expect to have an increased awareness of the setting and troubleshooting of NIV following the sessions as well as an appreciation of the pressures and back up settings required for different patient groups.

Ultrasound Training 

The ultrasound training included an introductory talk by Dr Khaled Saraya, emergency medicine specialist, followed by a practical scanning session.

‘Ultrasound scanning has become embedded in the daily practice of a number of specialties, so people are becoming more familiar with it. At this taster event we had six machines which we used to teach the basic skills that a physician may need. The delegates were all very enthusiastic,’ said Dr Saraya.

Alistair Wood, Ultrasound Solutions Manager, GE Healthcare, said: ‘Many trainees don’t have any formal training in ultrasound yet it is a technology they need to know about and have a level of competency in order to be able to use the machines and interpret the images.It is a safe diagnostic technology and is increasingly being used by clinicians.'

ECG training

ECG Training

The ECG Training Zone offered teaching on ECG interpretation with hands-on workshops led by Dr Simon Fynn, Consultant Cardiologist and Clinical Director for Cardiology, Papworth Hospital, Cambridge.

‘Our new machines are much more sensitive to picking up myocardial infarction particularly posterior and right-sided myocardial infarction (MI). This is a very new technology, unique to us,’ said Nick Routledge director of Nihon Khoden UK ltd.  ‘The standard 12 lead ECG is only 88% sensitive to MI so if 100 patients present with an MI you are likely to miss 12 of them,’ he explained.

The sessions were divided by level (beginner, intermediate and expert) and revolved around interpreting ECGs as well as refining hands-on skills on taking an ECG.

Nihon Kohden demostrated synEci 18, a new technology to derive the waveforms of the right chest leads (V3R, V4R, V5R) and back leads (V7, V8, V9) from the standard 12-lead ECG measurement procedure.
