0830-1030 - ISAP Interactive Workshop 2020
Practical Concepts of Anesthetic Pharmacology for the Benefit of Your Patient
A Practical course that will improve your skills for anesthetic drug administration.
This two-hour interactive workshop is intended for residents and consultants in anesthesia who would like to learn about methods of drug titration that can result in a more controlled condition of the patient, both during induction, maintenance and recovery of anesthesia. Two experienced workshop presenters Steve Shafer, MD, Stanford, USA, and Hugo Vereecke, MD, PhD, Groningen, The Netherlands, will share their knowledge and discuss basic concepts of anesthetic pharmacology that can be applied easily in clinical practice to the benefit of your patient.
The learning objective: To obtain skills for adapting drug titration towards available pharmacological evidence.
Workshop Concept: By interacting with the audience, practical problems that may occur in clinical practice will be shared and discussed. After this workshop the attendants will have learned the importance of concepts such as “time to peak effect” and “context sensitive halftime” and how to apply these in clinical practice. Technological solutions that assist in individualizing the drug titration during a balanced anesthesia will be discussed. The concept of “effect-site concentration” will be used and explained as an easy tool to understand the time course of drug effect related to different titration techniques.
