Venue: Singapore

The highly acclaimed ECMO course at the SG ANZICS is currently one of the few courses endorsed by Extracorporeal Life Support Organisation (ELSO) world-wide and develops skills for doctors, nurses, perfusionists and respiratory therapists in the management of patients on ECMO, and troubleshooting common problems with a simulated learning experience. The content of the Course will include pre-learning materials as well as overview summaries on ECMO indications and contraindications, ECMO physiology, emerging perspectives and other aspects of ECMO patient care and management, including anticoagulation and weaning. The didactic talks will be supplemented by water drills that cover the A to Z of the circuit and its components, plus common issues faced during day-to-day management of ECMO patients. The learning would be further enhanced by smaller group simulation sessions to allow for hands-on learning and active instructions on basic and advanced topics such as circuit checks, equipment components, alarms, pressure monitoring, and emergency trouble-shooting procedures. Faculty and simulation educators will facilitate discussions on team training, clinical critical thinking and decision making. Participants who attend the three-day course, would be assessed online before and after the course by the ELSO and would receive certificate of participation from ELSO.

Synopsis: This workshop seeks to take participants beyond standard ventilation practices. We will review ventilator asynchrony, lung protective ventilation and the current understanding of ventilator induced lung injury. The workshop will focus on equipping participants with knowledge and hands on skills to recognize and manage complex scenarios at the extremes of pulmonary physiology, including the role of PEEP, lung recruitment and adjunctive pharmacological interventions. The program will include lectures (including keynote international guest speakers), hands on simulation stations and group discussion with international experts.
Learning Objectives: At the end of the course, participant should be able to:
  • Describe the physiology of asynchrony
  • Describe the types of asynchrony and how to recognise them with ventilator waveforms.
  • Describe the practice and approaches to lung protective ventilation.
  • Describe the mechanisms by which the mechanical breath causes tissue damage at the alveolar level
  • Describe how the parameters of a mechanical breath (i.e. lung volumes, pressures, rates, flows and the duration they are applied to the lung at inspiration and expiration) can be adjusted to minimize VILI.
  • Describe available pharmacological interventions for ventilated patients.
  • Describe the management of hypoxia and adjunctive approaches.

Here we are again! Last year’s Bare bones course our first, was met with a very positive response. This year we have reviewed our course content taking into account the valuable feedback from our participants and faculty. This year the course will allow more time at the practical stations so you get more hands on.

We all know that ultrasound use in the ICU is now routine. It has clearly proven its usefulness in the managing of critically ill patients. The use of ultrasound in the diagnosis and management of shock states has resulted in better outcomes. No more guess work. The use of ultrasound to guide invasive procedures have also improved patient safety and minimised the need to move patients around for procedures like drainage of effusions or PICC insertion.

Learning Objectives::

The aim of this course is to introduce participants to the basic use of ultrasound in its simplest form to aid patient management. We aim to minimise complex jargon and measurements to introduce easy to remember algorithms and skills that anyone can learn and use while at the same time providing sufficient scientific background. Emphasis is on the things that make a difference. More emphasis will be placed on cardiac ultrasound and common procedural ultrasound.

This course is aimed at all who are interested in ICU ultrasound especially the total newbie, resident or consultant new to ultrasound. We hope to be able to impart practical skills that you can immediately use in your ICU. More practical time will be devoted for you to learn the most crucial skills of good reproducible image acquisition and simple but reliable and usable interpretation to aid you in your work.

Synopsis: Complex Home Ventilation is the term proposed by an NHS ( UK) workgroup to denote
  1. Invasive ( Tracheostomy) ventilation
  2. Patients dependent on noninvasive ventilation ( > 14 hours in 24 hours)
  3. Patients assisted by non-invasive ventilation ( <14 hours/day), but having complex medical conditions - neuromuscular disorders, cardiomyopathy etc
  4. Transition from paediatric home ventilation.

The goal of complex home ventilation is to maximise function and QoL of such patients while maintaining a high standard of safety and preserving survival as far as possible.

Success in complex home ventilation depends on attention to the multi-faceted needs of such patients, preferably delivered by a dedicated multidisciplinary team.  

Following the successful collaboration with paediatric specialists in 2019, we will continue to have a combined faculty with paediatric specialists from KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital and National University Hospital. Paediatric content may be interwoven into the course, or there may be separate breakout sessions for paediatric topics if there is substantial representation from paediatric healthcare workers amongst the participants.

Target audience: Physicians, Nurses and Therapists with interest in provision of Complex Home Ventilation
Learning Objectives:

This workshop will cover the physiology and pathophysiology of respiratory failure, mechanical ventilation ( invasive and non-invasive ventilation) tips applied to the complex patient; breathing and sleep; non-respiratory concerns of the complex home ventilated patient; advanced tracheostomy care - breathing / speaking / eating with a trach; airway clearance; setting up a patient for long term ventilation; roles of the multi-disciplinary team members; emergency drills.

The topics will be oriented towards both the Adult and Paediatric Complex Home Ventilation Patient.

Schedule: To be advised

Doctors, Nurses and Therapists from Tan Tock Seng Hospital - Home Ventilation and Respiratory Support Service; Woodlands Health, KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital Complex and Home Care Services; and National University Hospital Paediatrics Complex Home Care Service

Faculty convened upon invitation of Society of Intensive Care Medicine ( SICM) , Singapore. Proceeds from the course will be channelled to SICM to help support registration of delegates from Low-Middle income countries .

The curriculum is presented as a 2-day series of integrated lectures and didactic in-person skill stations that provides knowledge, guidance for decision making, and limited practice in some clinical procedures.
Synopsis: The PFCCS course is an in-depth and comprehensive programme aimed at improving paediatric care. Using the same hands-on, high-quality approach as Fundamental Critical Care Support (FCCS), this programme focuses intensely on the paediatric population. PFCCS accomplishes these goals by providing a balance of didactic lectures and hands-on skill stations while building on the participant’s basic paediatric knowledge. Those who have completed Basic Life Support (BCLS) and Advanced Paediatric Life Support (APLS) or their equivalents will benefit from PFCCS, because much of the material covers the transition from initial patient resuscitation to arrival in the intensive care unit. Some of the unique features of the course include interactive case scenario-based lectures and skill stations specific to critically ill or injured children.
Learning Objectives:
  1. Prioritise assessment needs for the critically ill or injured infant and child
  2. Select appropriate diagnostic tests
  3. Identify and respond to significant changes in the unstable paediatric patient
  4. Recognise and initiate management of acute life-threatening conditions
