Nursing Symposium: Dawn of New Era – Perioperative Medicine and Nursing Care
Date: 14 November 2020 (Saturday)
Time: 09:00 – 10:30
Speakers: Ms. Suet-Yi CHAN, Dr. Danny IP, Ms. Sylvia WONG (Hong Kong)

Anaesthesia is having its evolution to become Perioperative Medicine, that brings better preoperative preparation to improving immediate post operative care for patients receiving surgeries under anaesthesia.

Perioperative nurses, partner of anaesthetists in perioperative arena, needs to understand their change and be prepared.

The aim of the symposium is to introduce the changes and inspire nurses to understand what one could prepare for the change. The nursing workshop on cardiopulmonary exercise testing would be one of them.

Nursing Workshop: Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing
Date: 14 November 2020 (Saturday)
Time: 11:00 – 12:30

Facilitators: Dr. Benny C. P. CHENG, Dr. Leo T. H. CHIU, Mr. Cheuk-Wai KAM, Dr. Carmen LAM, Dr. Chung-Wai LAU, Ms. Sandy W. C. LEUNG, Ms. Jasmine O. Y. TAM, Dr. Kai-Kit TSIM, Dr. Wing T. K. WONG, Mr. Shui-Kwong YAU, Ms. Pui-Ling YIP (Hong Kong)

“What is cardiopulmonary exercise testing? How is it done? What are we expecting from the test?” Don’t worry if you have these questions in mind, as it is quite a new thing for most of us in Hong Kong.

In this 90-minutes primer workshop, through live demonstration, we hope to provide you with some basic ideas of the test, including the physiological basis of respiratory and cardiovascular responses to exercise. We would also love to share with you some practical steps and tips in conducting CPET, from the local experience of our faculties and from a nursing perspective.

Optional Workshops
14 November 2020 (Saturday)

Workshop 1 – Haemodynamic Workshop
Time: 11:00 – 12:30
Facilitators: Dr. Sebastian S. P. CHAN, Dr. Dilys H. Y. KWOK, Dr. Jason T. Y. LAI, Dr. George W. Y. NG, Dr. Patrick C. P. WONG (Hong Kong)A screen shot of a computer  Description automatically generated

Perioperative unstable hemodynamic remains an everyday challenge to perioperative physicians. Understanding the underlying pathophysiology of the unstable patient is essential to allow administration of appropriate treatment and potentially provide guide to surgical planning. Various invasive and non-invasive equipment are now available for use intraoperatively and in the ICU setting. This workshop will cover echocardiography use, and other newer non-invasive cardiac output monitoring devices with the use of simulators. We hope to provide an overview of current hemodynamic technologies and provide an opportunity for participants to learn which one may benefit their clinical practice.

Workshop 2 – Basic EEG for Anaesthetists
Time: 13:30 – 15:00
Facilitators: Dr. Eric CHUNG, Dr. Karen LEE, Dr. Clara POON (Hong Kong) A screen shot of a computer  Description automatically generated

Depth of anaesthesia monitoring has often focused on getting the right number on various proprietary processed EEG devices, but more information is actually embedded in the raw EEG tracing. In this workshop, we will help anaesthetists understand the basics of EEG for depth of anaesthesia monitoring and to recognize the EEG signatures for various anaesthetics. We hope that through the workshop, anaesthetists will understand a bit more of the science behind the “number” and be able to look beyond it.


15 November 2020 (Sunday)

Workshop 3 – Crisis Refresher Workshop for Specialists
Time: 08:30 – 12:00
Venue: HKJC ILCM, HKAM Jockey Club Building
Facilitators: Dr. Albert CHAN, Dr. Phoon-Ping CHEN, Dr. Yu-Fat CHOW, Dr. Vivian LAU, Dr. Charlotte LO, Dr. Jaclyn WONG, Dr. Steven YIP (Hong Kong) A screen shot of a computer  Description automatically generated

Led by a team of highly experienced simulation instructors, this half-day workshop is designed for specialists who want take their crisis management ability to the next level. Through immersive role-play in high fidelity crisis scenarios, participants can practice managing anaesthetic events as a team in a safe and contained environment. Instructors will incorporate crew resource management principles and elements from latest resuscitation guidelines into different scenarios and facilitate constructive debriefing to enhance participant’s learning. No matter you are familiar with simulation training or not, this workshop will be a comfortable and rewarding experience.

Note to participants: This workshop will take place at Hong Kong Jockey Club Innovative Learning Centre for Medicine (HKJC ILCM), in the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine Jockey Club Building, Aberdeen. A coach will transport participants back to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre after the workshop in time for lunch.

Workshop 4 – Regional Anaesthesia Workshop
Time: 11:00 – 12:30       
Facilitators: Dr. Yu-Fai CHUNG, Dr. Henry C. Y. MAK, Dr. Louis Y. H. MOK (Hong Kong)

This workshop focuses on live demonstrations and supervised hands-on ultrasound scanning of selected blocks at basic -intermediate level relevant to daily practice.

A low participant to instructor ratio ensures each participant will have adequate time to grasp relevant scanning techniques.

Further details will be available soon.

 

 

Workshop 5 – Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing Workshop
Time for Workshop 5A : 13:30 – 15:00
Time for Workshop 5B: 13:30 – 15:00, 15:30 – 17:00

Facilitators: Dr. Benny C. P. CHENG, Dr. Leo T. H. CHIU, Mr. Cheuk-Wai KAM, Dr. Carmen LAM, Dr. Chung-Wai LAU, Ms. Sandy W. C. LEUNG, Ms. Jasmine O. Y. TAM, Dr. Wing T. K. WONG, Mr. Shui-Kwong YAU, Ms. Pui-Ling YIP (Hong Kong)

“Is this patient fit for surgery?”. Certainly this is one of the most commonly raised questions amongst us, especially when we are facing frail elderly patients scheduled for major surgeries.

The Cardiopulmonary exercise test aims to provide an objective and integrated evaluation of physical fitness. It yields an individualized risk profile in order to guide collaborative decision-making, to characterize functional capacity, and to predict whether the patients will tolerate the physiological stresses provoked by surgeries. The test-guided patient-specific prehabilitation, surgical and anaesthetic practice could ultimately translate to improved patient outcomes.

The first part of our workshop will take the form of a live demonstration of the state-of-the-art CPET machine and a didactic lecture, so that you can have a basic understanding of the test.

Going into the second part we will split into small groups. Through the form of problem-based and interactive in-depth discussions, we would like to guide you through a wider-range of topics, including the interpretation of the seemingly overwhelming 9-panel plots and practical tips of putting the test into practice.
