SonoSite supports first pan-European ESRA training

Saturday the 27th of January 2018 marks the first ESRA European Day of Regional Anaesthesia, delivered simultaneously in over 20 training hubs across the continent. FUJIFILM SonoSite is delighted to be backing this new initiative by providing point-of-care ultrasound devices to many of the workshops.

Dr Jonathan Womack, an anaesthetic consultant at the Royal Victoria Infirmary (RVI), Newcastle, and one of the event organisers, said: “This is the first time we’ve put together something this big; the programme is the same across all the sites and the varied content will have broad appeal. We’ve been able to secure a number of expert speakers – including Dr Nat Haslam, Honorary Secretary of RA-UK – and we’ve limited numbers to 30 delegates per site to foster a hands-on, workshop atmosphere and deliver the best experience.”

The day-long programme offers a range of lectures, live demos and workshops, covering everything from ultrasound for obstetric anaesthesia to novel abdominal wall blocks. Jonathan continued: “The morning sessions are fairly open ended, allowing each city to tailor the live demos around the interests of the delegates and – thanks to social media – respond to questions and participate in the conversations taking place at the other sites. I’ve run training courses with SonoSite in the past and it’s great to have access to the company’s devices during the afternoon workshops. They really are the best systems for ultrasound-guided regional anaesthesia.”
