What do Trainees NEED to know?

During this 20 minute lecture I will be covering the following areas of practice

  1. Anatomical, Physiological and Pharmacological differences of children compared to adults.
  2. Preoperative assessment – important aspects of history and examination, consent and assent, baclofen.
  3. Preoperative preparation – Information to child and family
  4. Block selection – Peripheral vs central. Catheter or not?
  5. Theatre – Practicalities of block placement including in an awake child.
  6. Intraoperative management –  top tips to improve delivery of a comfortable child in recovery.
  7. Postoperative management in First stage, and Second stage recovery including catheter management
  8. Training – discuss the difficulties of learning these techniques and how to overcome them.

Finally I hope that we can see that it is not just about the block, it is how we manage the whole patient, family and indeed our ward staff.
