The well-being of our patients, families and staff is our utmost priority. In light of new guidelines designed to reduce the potential for unnecessary exposure of our communities to COVID-19, we are cancelling Pediatric Difficult Airway and Regional Anesthesia and Pain Conference.

These guidelines are currently effective through April 17, 2020. They will be reviewed weekly as the situation evolves.

We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to bringing back this event next year!

Overview

The Pediatric Difficult Airway and Pediatric Regional Anesthesia and Pain Conference is a two-day conference for anesthesiologists, anesthesiology trainees, certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs), and other advanced practice providers to gain knowledge and technical skills for pediatric difficult airway management, pediatric regional anesthesia and acute pain management. This two-day conference will be taught by experts in the field and include hands-on practice.

The Pediatric Difficult Airway portion will give participants the opportunity to learn from experts in the field in the knowledge, tools, and technical skills required for pediatric difficult airway management. The day will consist of 1) hands-on airway management practice and coaching in small-group sessions using mannequins and animal models, covering advanced airway management techniques including freehand fiberoptic intubation, fiberoptic through a laryngeal mask, videolaryngoscopy, invasive front-of-neck access, and other combination techniques. 2) Didactic lectures complementing the hands-on session and additional related topics including pediatric difficult airway algorithms, fiberoptic intubation, invasive airway access, and how to create an airway response team.

The Pediatric Regional Anesthesia and Pain Management portion is an interactive and hands-on course teaching participants the knowledge, tools, and technical skills required for ultrasound-guided pediatric regional anesthesia and acute pain management. The day will consist of 1) hands-on ultrasound scanning on live pediatric volunteers and ultrasound-training models. 2) Didactic lectures on regional anesthesia and postoperative pain management including: peripheral nerve blocks of the upper extremity, lower extremity, and trunk, developing an acute pain and regional service at a hospital, and building a home peripheral nerve catheter program.
