Thoracic Anaesthesia Skills

This is a 2-day workshop with a combination of lectures, actual/virtual (telemedical) theatre visits for throacic cases, and hands-on skills training.  

The workshop covers theory, physics and physiology of lung isolation and one lung ventilation, patient assessment, concepts in thoracic anaesthesia, and practical skills such as placement of double-lumen endotracheal tubes, bronchial blockers, rigid and flexible endoscopy.  There is also a simulation component in our Sim Theatre.

A Certificate of Attendance and CPD points will be issued to participants of the course.
