INDUSTRY SYMPOSIUM VII, Thursday 9 September, 1:00 to 2:00 PM, Track 2 - Safety rules when performing peripheral nerve blocks

How to avoid intraneural injections when performing peripheral nerve blocks?

Speakers: Dr Luc Serneus

This session gives an overview of guidelines, clinical evidence and best practice tips as well as technical solutions, how to improve patient safety when performing nerve blocks.

INDUSTRY SYMPOSIUM VI, Thursday 9 September, 1:00 to 2:00 PM, Track 1 - Regional anaesthesia practices: insights from a European survey conducted by BD with ESRA

Speakers: Prof. Paul Kessler, Prof. Dan Benhamou

This survey was designed by an expert panel and was initiated on 26th April 2021 and disseminated primarily through ESRA. There were 987 unique respondents, and 80% were from unique institutions across Europe. The survey covered RA practices and patient safety. Identifying a median 42% increase in RA procedures over the last 5 years, but also a need for systematic monitoring of complications and a lack od awareness in NRFit.

Speakers: Dr med. Peter Schwarzkopf, Dr Wojciech Gola, Dr Toby Jacobs

An exciting journey showcasing the key roles of ultrasound in exploring and assessing the Stomach, Lungs and Nerves illustrated by 3 experienced anaesthesiologists from Germany, Poland and UK.  The 3 lectures will be followed by an interactive discussion with participants via the Live Q&A portal.

INDUSTRY SYMPOSIUM II, Wednesday 8 September, 11:50 AM to 12:50 PM, Track 1 - Strategies to improve safety for Regional Anaesthesia

Speakers: Dr Morné Wolmarans, Dr Maria Paz Sebastian, Dr Peter Merjavy, Dr Benjamin Fox

Strategies to improve safety for Regional Anesthesia (RA) are important to help reduce the risk of nerve injury during nerve block procedures. A panel of highly experienced regional anaesthesia practitioners will explore some of the key factors to be considered and addressed to help improve safety during regional anaesthesia. In the context of causes and incidence of nerve injury, areas to be considered include patient factors, technical factors and human factors. Alongside an awareness of how these can impact safety during RA, the symposium will also take a look at some clinical tips for how to mitigate for nerve injury during nerve blocks. This will include a look a ergonomics and injection technique, as well as how advancements in RA technologies can assist clinicians during RA procedures

MINI INDUSTRY SYMPOSIUM IV, Thursday 9 September, 5:50 to 6:20 PM, Track 2 - ERAS in Orthopedic Surgery Updated - The Use of RA Pain Pumps

Speakers: Prof. Xavier Capdevila

Orthopedic surgery beneficiates from ERAS patient-centered management. However, 40% of patients still experience severe postoperative pain and a risk of pain rebound after RA. Studies on pain trajectories recommend CPNB infusion for total joint arthroplasties. We will share in the lecture the interests of CPNB for pain relief, opioid consumption, patient management, nurse workload and patient rehabilitation.
