Aim

To provide:

  • an introduction to thoracic anaesthesia for trainees
  • a refresher in thoracic anaesthesia for consultants & nursing staff

Outline

This half day workshop is designed for the generalist anaesthetist who occasionally encounters thoracic anaesthesia, particularly in the after-hours or urgent setting.  Topics include:

  • lung isolation (with specific emphasis on how to choose the best airway device)
  • lung protective strategies
  • managing hypoxia on one lung
  • analgesic strategies
  • DLT placement, (including in the difficult airway, and on the right side)
  • bronchoscopy training
  • bronchial blocker use

Anaesthetic assistants seeking to familiarise themselves with equipment and the sequences involved in establishing lung isolation are encouraged to attend with their medical colleagues.
