Congres AnesthesieESICM Summer Conference Lyon
LIVES 2012 - ESICM's 25th Annual Congress
The easy availability of renal replacement therapy in modern ICUs makes us forget the serious consequences for patients suffering from a failing kidney.
Recent changes in comprehension of the pathophysiology as well as clinical presentation and outcome lead to the new terminology Acute Kidney Injury representing a syndrome with systemic consequences.
The ESICM Summer Conference will provide a comprehensive update on the hottest and most controversial topics of AKI presented by highly respected international experts in the field.
UC Davis Ultrasound Guided Peripheral Nerve Block Workshop Hands-on Teaching
Presentation of original research is one of the priorities of this series of Congresses and we anticipate that there will be almost 1400 oral and poster presentations of unpublished research. This combination of thematic presentations, education and discussion and debate of new data is an intoxicating mixture that will make the Congress an event which should not be missed
23rd Annual UC Davis Anesthesiology Update
The use of ultrasound imaging for regional anesthesia is an emerging and important field in anesthesiology. It can improve the quality, success rate, and safety of regional blocks.
The use of ultrasound allows real time visualization of the nerves and the surrounding structures with real time guidance prior to advancing the needle and visual confirmation of the local anesthetic spread around the nerve. Initial studies and results suggest that ultrasound guidance may decrease latency and improve success rates, eliminating or reducing serious complications.
Past participant evaluations and community physician annual needs assessment have indicated the need for cutting edge information about ultrasound guided regional anesthesia techniques. The course is designed to change physician competence in areas identified in the needs assessments, including selection of treatments for acute pain management.
This one-day workshop will specifically address these identified educational needs and provide practitioners with state-of-the art tools to provide improved treatment options for their patients. Faculty presenting and interacting with participants at this activity have been selected on the basis of their comprehensive clinical experience and academic excellence.
At the end of the program, participants should be able to:
Discuss the significance of ultrasound reflection, refraction, and attenuation and their importance in tissue echogenicity
and nerve imaging
Demonstrate expertise adjusting the focus, frequency, depth and gain on the ultrasound machine
Discuss the indications and contraindications for peripheral nerve blocks
Identify important anatomic structures of the back, upper extremity and lower extremity using the ultrasound transducer.
Important structures include bone, muscles, blood vessels, nerve plexuses and peripheral nerves
Identify 5 common acoustic artifacts
Describe 2 examples of sonopathology
Demonstrate proficiency in ultrasound scanning technique and image optimization

19ème Journées "La douleur de l'enfant Quelles réponses ?"
This activity is designed to educate healthcare professionals caring for patients in the perioperative setting following various surgical procedures. Emphasis will be placed on care of the trauma patient, multimodal anesthesia techniques and regional anesthesia, operating room emergencies, coagulation problems and concerns about the economic issues surrounding the delivery of healthcare in the 21st century.
Anesthesiology and pain medicine physicians, nurse anesthetists, nurses, physician assistants, research staff, anesthesiology residents and fellows are encouraged to attend.
This course is designed to increase the clinical knowledge base of anesthesia, trauma care and perioperative healthcare providers. Course participant evaluations and community physician annual needs assessment surveys have identified the need for cutting edge information about perioperative healthcare. Topics to be covered include recent advances in anesthesiology and its major subspecialties including ambulatory, pediatric, regional anesthesia, acute pain management and trauma care. Lectures will address the economic impact and cost savings of regional anesthesia, regional anesthesia and perioperative pain management, perioperative hemostasis, updates on trauma resuscitation, and the impact of health care reform on anesthesia practice.
This year’s conference will specifically address these identified educational needs and provide practitioners with state-of-the-art tools to deliver improved treatment options for their patients. Faculty presenting and interacting with participants at this activity have been selected on the basis of their comprehensive clinical experience and academic excellence.
At the end of the program, participants should be able to:
* Recognize the areas of perioperative care that can be positively affected by
regional anesthesia techniques
* Develop a strategy to utilize regional anesthesia in your daily practice
* Identify the techniques suitable for continuous regional anesthesia
* Recognize the barriers to using perineural catheter techniques
* List the regional anesthetic techniques appropriate for total knee, total shoulder &
total foot arthroplasty
* Describe the current treatment guidelines for local anesthetic systemic toxicity
* Discuss the indications for regional anesthetic techniques in the trauma victim
*Discuss the appropriate use and interpretation of platelet function assays
* List the many classes of non-opioid analgesic agents
* Discuss options for regional anesthetic techniques for trauma care
* Discuss risks and strategies to reduce dangers associated with compartment syndrome,
pre-existent nerve damage, and LAST
* Discuss the mechanisms of antithrombotic therapy
* Describe the optimal care of the trauma patient who has both a head injury and pelvic fracture

Clinical Specialist Program
Ces journées, organisées par l'association Pédiadol, se déroulent du 5 au 7 décembre 2012.
Devant le succès rencontré ces dernières années par les ateliers de formation, ceux-ci sont proposés la veille et le lendemain de la séance plénière à l'Unesco avec une trentaine de thématiques.
Ce rendez-vous incontournable des médecins, des infirmières et de tous les soignants concernés par la douleur de l'enfant permet d'actualiser ses connaissances, d'échanger avec ses pairs et de se (re)motiver pour impulser les changements.
Cette 19ème édition se consacre plus particulièrement :
- aux difficultés d'évaluation de la douleur ;
- au délicat problème de la somatisation ;
- à la douleur liées aux sondages ;
- à l'installation confortable des enfants ;
- mais aussi aux anesthésiques locaux, à la présence des parents, à la distraction en 3D, à l'accueil de l'enfant au bloc opératoire (SPARADRAP), etc.
Le 5 et 7 décembre : Faculté Saint Antoine - Paris 12ème
le 6 décembre : UNESCO - Paris 7ème
