EVECC Congress 2020 LAB Descriptions

As in previous years we are organizing different labs at EVECC Congress 2021 where you can learn the skills of emergency procedures and critical care from well-known specialists. There is a limited number of attendees for each lab so please register fast to reserve your spot in your preferred lab.

All labs will take place at the Veterinary campus at the University of Porto, which is located just a five minute walk away from the congress center.

Please note that the disposabels for all labs are made possible by the generous support of:

 


Wednesday June 2nd - Basic POCUS Lab

Time: 09:00 - 12:00 (incl. breakes, 3,0 hrs. workshop)
Maximum number of attendees: 20
Format: Wetlab
Lab fee: Early fee € 121,95 (€ 150,00 incl. VAT) / Late fee € 162,60 (€ 200,00 incl. VAT)

More information about the lab will follow soon!


Wednesday June 2nd - Recover CPR Rescuer Certification - BLS and ALS Lab

Tutor: Ken Yagi
Time: 09.00 - 17.45 (incl. breaks, 7 hrs. workshop)
Maximum number of attendees: 20
Format: Drylab
Lab fee: Early fee € 203,25 (€ 250,00 incl. VAT) / Late fee € 243,90 (€ 300,00 incl. VAT)
Prerequisite: Completion of the online RECOVER BLS and ALS at recoverinitiative.org is required to attend this workshop!
Please note: You have to organize and pay for this online training module yourself, and this via recoverinitiative.org. If you use the coupon "EVECCS2021" during check-out, you receive a 30% discount on the course!
COVID-19 Note: If the workshop is determined to be unsafe to conduct due to COVID, alternative training will be performed through video-conferencing in a telesimulation adaptation. In the telesimulation platform, participants will receive a review of core concepts in RECOVER BLS and ALS noted above with an emphasis on cognitive competency and communication during CPR through participation in the simulation. Requirements for participation include access to a computer capable of using Zoom with a mic and webcam enabled, and a simple canine mannequin (or substitute). 

How do we best treat animals in cardiopulmonary arrest? Evidence-based veterinary CPR guidelines published by the RECOVER Initiative in 2012 aimed at maximizing patient survival after cardiopulmonary arrest led to the official veterinary CPR certification process approved by the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care. This course will teach the concepts and techniques of RECOVER Basic Life Support (BLS) and 
Advanced Life Support (ALS).

The certification process consists of an online course followed by onsite, hands-on training. Participants must have successfully completed the RECOVER online BLS and ALS courses (available at http://recoverinitiative.org or completed the courses previously offered by eCornell or Veritas). Successful completion of this course grants certification as a RECOVER BLS and ALS Rescuer. Human medical professionals certify in human CPR. Veterinary medical professionals should certify themselves in veterinary CPR!

Basic Life Support Certification
Participants will receive a review of core concepts in RECOVER BLS and have an opportunity to apply these concepts through scenarios using canine mannequins. Practice scenarios include single-rescuer BLS and two-rescuer BLS, with and without intubation. The session concludes with a practical assessment resulting in certification as a RECOVER Certified BLS Rescuer upon passing.

Advanced Life Support Certification
Participants will review core concepts in RECOVER ALS through scenario-based immersive simulation. The scenarios will provide the opportunity to apply concepts in patient monitoring, use of drugs, defibrillation, and the decision-making process of appropriate interventions during CPR. The session concludes with a team-based practical assessment resulting in certification as a RECOVER Certified ALS Rescuer upon passing.


Thursday June 3rd - Basic POCUS Lab        

Tutors: T.B.C.
Time: 09:30 - 13:00 (incl. breakes, 3,5 hrs. workshop)
Maximum number of attendees: 20
Format: Wetlab
Lab fee: Early fee € 121,95 (€ 150,00 incl. VAT) / Late fee € 162,60 (€ 200,00 incl. VAT)

Thursday June 3rd - Recover Instructor Certification Course

Tutors: Ken Yagi  
Time: 09:30 - 17:45 (incl. breakes, 8. hrs. workshop)
Maximum number of attendees: 20
Format: Dryab
Lab fee: Early fee € 203,25 (€ 250,00 incl. VAT) / Late fee € 243,90 (€ 300,00 incl. VAT)
Prerequisite: Participants must be RECOVER Certified BLS and ALS Rescuers (may be completed at the same conference), and will also submit an application prior to the date of the workshop.
COVID-19 Note: If the workshop is determined to be unsafe to conduct due to COVID, alternative training will be performed.  

This session offers veterinary professionals certification as RECOVER CPR BLS and ALS Instructors, approved to certify veterinarians and veterinary technicians as RECOVER BLS and ALS Rescuers. Participants must have successfully completed the RECOVER BLS and ALS online courses and be RECOVER Certified Rescuers in BLS and ALS. Participants will learn how to run hands-on BLS certification workshops with CPR mannequins and how to deliver the standardized assessments to certify others as BLS Rescuers. Attendees will then learn to run a hands-on ALS workshop with a canine patient simulator running a series of CPR simulations, and ultimately a final "mega-code" simulation to certify ALS Rescuers.


Friday June 4th - Advanced pleural space, lung and cardiovascular POCUS Lab   

Tutors: T.B.C.
Time: 09:00 - 13:15 (incl. breakes, 4 hrs. workshop)
Maximum number of attendees: 20
Format: Wetlab
Lab fee: Early fee € 162,60 (€ 200,00 incl. VAT) / Late fee € 203,25 (€ 250,00 incl. VAT)

The wetlab will be organized off site. This wetlab will focus on identifying abnormalities on abdominal, pleural and pulmonary pocus. The delegates will train in small groups at different stations under direct supervision of the lab instructor or assistant on cadavers. Emphasis will be placed on the recognition and identification of abnormal findings at the level of the abdomen, pleural space and lungs using a goal directed approach.

Friday June 4th - Blood gas, Electrolytes and Acid base Workshop

Tutors: René Dörfelt
Time: 14.15 - 17.00 (incl. break, 3.0 hrs. workshop)
Maximum number of attendees: 20
Format: Drylab
Lab fee: Early fee € 121,95 (€ 150,00 incl. VAT) / Late fee € 162,60 (€ 200,00 incl. VAT)

In this interactive workshop, attendees will learn a systematic approach to the interpretation of venous and arterial blood gas analysis, acid-base disorders, and electrolyte abnormalities commonly encountered in the critically ill patient. An introductory lecture will review how acid-base homeostasis is maintained in the body. The principles of arterial blood gas analysis will be also discussed, introducing measures to evaluate oxygenation such as A-a gradient and PaO2/FiO2 relationships. In the second part of the lab, attendees will work through case-based examples of electrolyte and acid-base disorders, assess patient oxygenation, develop patient treatment plans, and get feedback from the instructors.
