Welcome to the SOAP 2017 Sol Shnider, M.D. Obstetric Anesthesia Meeting

Welcome to the Sol Shnider, M.D. Obstetric Anesthesia Meeting. About 40 years ago, Sol Shnider, M.D., Samuel C. Hughes, M.D., and Mark A. Rosen, M.D., offered the first annual obstetric anesthesia meeting in San Francisco to honor Dr. Shnider and his important contributions to obstetric anesthesia. The Society for Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology is proud to continue this annual tradition in providing clinical updates in obstetric anesthesia by leaders in the specialty. The premeeting workshop offers the opportunity to learn ultrasound for the care of the pregnant patient. This meeting will enlighten your obstetric anesthesia clinical practice by providing new insight and knowledge and there will be ample time for you to ask questions and address concerns with faculty during the conference. The planning committee is delighted to offer you this outstanding and engaging learning opportunity.

Sincerely,
Manuel Vallejo, M.D., D.M.D.

Pre-Meeting Workshop

Thursday, March 10, 2016

SOAP is offering the Hands-on Ultrasound for the Obstetric Anesthesia Provider: Cardiac Ultrasound, Hemodynamic Exam, Pulmonary Evaluation, Ultrasound Guided TAP Blocks & Neuraxial Techniques and Basic Fetal Ultrasound Workshop the day before the full 2017 SOAP Sol Shnider, M.D. Obstetric Anesthesia Meeting begins.

Meeting attendees are encouraged to register for these events early. Please note that registration for the workshops requires a separate, additional fee from the full SOAP 2017 Sol Shnider, M.D. Obstetric Anesthesia Meeting registration.

Hands-on Ultrasound for the Obstetric Anesthesia Provider: Cardiac Ultrasound, Hemodynamic Exam, Pulmonary Evaluation, Ultrasound Guided TAP Blocks & Neuraxial Techniques and Basic Fetal Ultrasound

Activity Directors:

  • Kristine Breyer, M.D.
    UCSF Assistant Professor, Anesthesia & Critical Care
  • Andrew Gray, M.D., Ph.D.
    UCSF Professor, Anesthesia

(Limited to 20 participants)

Additional Fee: $325

LOCATION: Grand Hyatt Hotel

DESCRIPTION:
The purpose of this workshop is to provide the obstetric anesthesiologist with the necessary skills to successfully use ultrasound for guidance. The course will discuss and demonstrate the use of ultrasound as an aid to evaluate cardiac function and intravascular volume status, to evaluate for presence of pneumothorax and pulmonary edema, to aid in neuraxial anesthesia and TAP (transverse abdominis plane) blocks for the parturient and also for basic fetal ultrasound (including evaluation of fetal heart rate and biophysical profile). Instruction includes both didactic and hands-on sessions. Each student will have the opportunity to use ultrasound equipment for scanning live models.

OBJECTIVES:
Upon completion of this workshoip, the participant will be able to:

  1. Use ultrasound in order to aide in the clinical assessment of normal and depressed cardiac function
  2. Use ultrasound in order to aide in clinical assessment of pulmonary edema and pneumothorax
  3. Use ultrasound in order to aide in the clinical assessment of volume responsiveness to shock
  4. Use ultrasound in order to facilitate neuraxial anesthesia techniques and also to facilitate performing an ultrasound guided transverse abdominis plane (TAP) block for the parturient
  5. Describe basic fetal ultrasound to assess for fetal position and biophysical profile (including fetal heart rate)
