Delivering diagnosis with ultrasound - why imagine when you can image? - The heart of the matter

We will demonstrate how basic point of care ultrasound can be used by frontline clinicians to make rapid and accurate diagnoses at the bedside. To do this we will deliver 5 entry-level training sessions: scanning a patient’s heart, lungs, abdomen and vascular systems, plus a dedicated perioperative care session. 
Cardiovascular dysfunction occurs frequently in the acute medicine; hypotension could have a cardiac origin. Without echocardiography, clinical evaluation alone is inadequate in deciding how to treat these patients.
This session demonstrates how getting basic heart views at the bedside and answering simple questions would help you treat your patients better.

Advances in haemodynamic monitoring to better manage your moderate to high risk surgical patients

2.4 million patients undergo high risk surgery across Europe every year 20% experience complications. Utilising advanced haemodynamic monitoring with a protocol has been shown to reduce post-operative complications in moderate to high risk surgery.
Station names: 
- Predicting hypotension to reduce IOH
- Non-invasive continuous pressure and flow monitoring
 Non-invasive cerebral and somatic tissue oximetry

Reducing the complexity of Non-invasive ventilation

Non-invasive ventilation (NIV) is an indispensable tool in the care of the critical ill patient.  The challenge, however, is the application of NIV in the ‘real world’.  We hope you can join the Draeger team to get hands on and explore how to conduct NIV safely and effectively via your Draeger device.

Patient safety from Anaesthesia through to Recovery

From Theatres to Recovery, clinicians must act quickly, safely, and effectively to meet the needs of a wide variety of patients. In line with the latest monitoring guidelines for sedation and anaesthesia, this workshop will teach you how to get the best from BIS and Capnography monitoring.

All in one Respiratory support solution for the acutely sick patient

NIV - CPAP/BiPAP/HFT explained: What are they, how do they affect patients physiologically and how to correctly set them. When, why and how to make changes to ventilator settings. Review of current guidelines and recommendations, with reference to the current healthcare challenges. Followed by hands on with a ventilator, experiencing it for yourself!

Patient Deterioration- Addressing the Human Factor 

It has become increasingly apparent that many Doctors and nursing staff are unable to manage a deteriorating patient in an appropriate, timely fashion. Several Clinical studies clearly show that delaying resuscitation and treatment increases the likelihood of organ failure due to inadequate oxygen delivery. This in turn can lead to unexpected death, cardiac arrests and unplanned admissions to the critical care unit.

“The Patient Deterioration Program” is an interdisciplinary education program designed to enhance understanding of patient deterioration and the significance of altered observations. It also improves communication between health care professionals and enhances timely management of patients.

Enhancing Physical Examination

A lot of what we do when we examine a patient is relatively inaccurate and to a large degree, ritualistic. This session will examine the evidence for accuracy of specific physical examinations and show how Ultrasound can enhance physical examination throughout a busy shift

Smart and sound examination of the chest

This session will provide a quick and easy method to evaluate the pulmonary system using ultrasound; just like you would use a stethoscope, but smarter. No tactile vocal fremitus or whispering pectoriloquy required

Focus ECHO

A vast medical literature has shown that physical examination can be largely eliminated and time consuming. One cannot hear much with the stethoscope. For example, it is said that many mitral stenosis murmurs are “silent,” but very easy to appreciate on a quick echocardiogram. This session will teach how to obtain the main cardiac views and interpret the findings for an effective patient management
