Breakfast Master Classes.

Breakfast Master Class Sessions


Sponsored Breakfast Master Class Sessions will be held on Saturday 8th June from 7.30-8.30am.

Each session is limited so please book early to secure your place. 

AVANT MUTUAL Breakfast Master Class


Essential Medico-Legal Skills for Doctors

Presenter: Ms Selina Hunt - Avant Law

Managing patients who have had an adverse outcome, especially death following a medical procedure, is stressful and challenging. In addition to the medical management of the patient we need to be aware of potential medicolegal consequences. This talk will aim to address the following issues faced by doctors of all levels:

-           How to give evidence in a medico-legal case or a coroner’s court, either as an expert or as a witness?

-           How to document in tricky situations such as medical error causing severe harm and potentially resulting in legal action?

-           Providing a report to the Coroner or a statement to police.

-           How to keep a personal record of events in situations with medico-legal implications?

GE Healthcare Breakfast Master Class


Tertiary PoCUS: Role in management of the Trauma patient

Presenter: Dr Kylie Baker

The primary survey of the trauma patient is a rapid clinical survey known by the mnemonic “A, B, C, D, E”. It is repeated regularly, when the patient is moved, or when vital signs worsen. It is useful because it focusses our attention, prioritises solutions, and reduces cognitive load during stress. As a protocol it is limited by insensitive examination skills and compounded by a noisy trauma scenario.

 

Point of care ultrasound can offer increased sensitivity over the clinical exam – and is repeatable, portable, measurable, comparable and auditable. Already the standard of care in many trauma interventions, it is well worth knowing how- and how not - to extend its use into monitoring of the unstable patient.

Using cases, this session shows how bedside ultrasound can be used in a rapid ‘A, B, C, D, E’ assessment to troubleshoot a lined and tubed patient, specifically considering pneumothorax, line and tube function, basic haemodynamic measures, GIT health and the ongoing controversy over IVC measurement.

Device Technologies Breakfast Master Class


Novel ventilatory strategies.

Presenter: Dr Hayden White

Most intensivists over the age of 50 will remember the days when ventilators were only capable of volume control ventilation requiring patients to be heavily sedated and paralyzed for days on end. With the rapid advancements in technology and our understanding of pulmonary mechanics, we now have a large number of ventilatory modes at our disposal. However, broadly speaking, it is still the intensivist who dictates ventilatory parameters which in many instances are not in sync with patient requirements. We may therefore have the situation where the patient, doctor and ventilator are working at cross purposes leading to patient:ventilator dysynchrony.

 

It is now increasingly recognized, that some form of feedback loop where the ventilator is able to rapidly adapt to changes in respiratory drive and pulmonary mechanics, is required. A number of newer modes have been developed and are slowly finding their way into clinical practice. These include NAVA, PAV, ASV and SmartCare.

 

The purpose of this session is investigate the potential applications and review the current evidence for these new modes
