CRISIS MANAGEMENT IN OBSTETRIC ANAESTHESIA AND NEONATAL RESUSCITATION
2017 COURSES FULL
The remaining courses for 2017 are sold out. To be placed on the waiting list, or register interest for 2018 courses, please email Dr Candida Marane (course convener).
This course will provide anaesthetists with a thorough review of the practical management of various obstetric anaesthetic emergencies as well as the fundamentals of neonatal resuscitation. The course aims to provide participants with the opportunity to improve their knowledge, technical and team-working skills in the management of these emergencies.
- Full day workshop (08:00-17:00) covering neonatal resuscitation and various obstetric anaesthetic emergencies such as:
- Maternal cardiac arrest
- Maternal haemorrhage
- The difficult obstetric airway
- Educational modalities include a variety of presentations, skills stations and fully immersive simulation scenarios.
- Endorsed by ANZCA, meeting the standards for recognition of the Cardiac Arrest Emergency Response Activity.
- Held in the new state of the art Sunshine Simulation Centre and run by anaesthetists and neonatologists experienced in simulation.
- Fully catered with morning tea, lunch and mid-afternoon snacks.
- Limited to only 8 participants to maximise ‘hands on’ time.
