Emergency Management Of Paediatric Airway

chricotyreotomyweb.jpg - Workshops

Description:

Advanced managing the pediatric patient with compromised airway is a fundamental skill for physicians who work in the emergency department.  Also, the knowledge and skills of basic management of the pediatric patient with compromised airway at site without medical equipment is fundamental and 'buys time' until advanced help is available.  Airway emergencies can be caused by medical conditions (croup/epiglottis, asthma, bronchiolitis, pneumonia, anaphylaxis), foreign body in the airway or trauma (burns, laryngospasm, direct trauma/fractured larynx, continuous hemorrhaging).
The objective of this workshop is to learn a systematic approach to a child with compromised airway, so called ABC (Airway, Breathing, Circulation) approach, and to demonstrate basic and advanced skills to manage this situation (airway opening, bag and mask ventilation, intubation, emergency cricothyroidotomy).
The workshop consists of the introduction lecture and interactive portion with demonstration and exercise on CPR training manikin.

Target Audience:

The workshop is available to all medical students.

Learning Objectives:

After the workshop the participant will be able to approach to child with compromised airway in a structured way, to know the order of actions and to demonstrate them on CPR training manikin.

Optimal number of participants:

Optimal number of participants is 10-15.

Description:

The purpose of the lecture is to introduce all the attendees to the basis of forensic medicine and forensic anthropology. The information that the attendees will be provided and taught how to spot are (all of the information would refer to the human skeletons):

  • how to determine whether the bone is human or animal
  • how to correctly determine whether the bone is placed on the right or left side of the body
  • the gender
  • the age and the injuries that occurred.

The practical part of the workshop would be in form of a small competition. The attendees would be split into 2 groups. Each group would be provided with a set of bones Their main tasks would be: placing the bones in their anatomical order, assessing the age and gender (optional), assessing the injuries on the skeleton..

Target Audience:

The workshop is available to all medical students.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will obtain the most basic concepts of forensic medicine
  • Participants would know how to determine the gender, age and injuries on skeletons
  • Participants would be familiar with the common injuries and the mechanisms by which they occur

Optimal number of participants:

Up to 30 people

Abscess Drainage

Description:

Incision and drainage of skin abscess is very important procedural skill for emergency providers. Practical skills training using stimulation provides an opportunity to learn and gain confidence with this invasive procedure. This workshop will provide a suprisingly realistic model including chicken legs stuffed with abscess-like material that helps teach the motor skills and steps necessary to properly incise, drain and dress an abscess. This workshop is consisted of two parts.

The first one is lecture about abscess, skin and soft tissue infections and the second is learning practical skills about incision, drainage and debridement.

Target Audience:

The workshop is available to all medical students.

Learning Objectives:

  • Get a knowledge about causes, symptoms, tests and treatment of abscess

  • Incision, drainage and debridement

Optimal number of participants:

Up to 15 people
