BEST COURSE

 

Basic Endovascular Skills for Trauma Course

 

29th July 2021 – 7.30am to 5.00pm

 

Faculty: Dr John Cozier – Sydney, Australia, Dr Elizabeth Benjamin – Los Angeles, USA, Dr Scott D’Amours – Sydney, Australia

 

Course Description

 

Participants in the Basic Endovascular Skills for Trauma (BEST) course* learn endovascular techniques such as resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA) to temporize life-threatening hemorrhage. The BEST course offers hands-on training with perfused cadavers including ultrasound-guided common femoral arterial (CFA) access, percutaneous and open cannulation of the CFA, and CFA repair.. 

 

BEST workshops* are intended to serve as an introduction to REBOA. The BEST workshop uses simulation models and is intended to serve as an introduction to REBOA and lays the foundation for more in-depth training at the BEST course. Those who wish to pursue more in-depth training may attend the BEST course. 

 

Target Audience

 

The intended audience includes acute care providers (surgeons, anaesthetists, emergency medicine physicians, ER, OR, ICU, interventional radiologists and retrievalists) who will most likely be the doctors responsible for obtaining definItive vascular access. Damage control endovascular procedures can be lifesaving in the exsanguinating patient. Significant improvements in procedural time and knowledge can be achieved regardless of endovascular experience and novice interventionalists such as acute care surgeons, anaesthetists or ER physicians can add a specific skill set (REBOA) to their existing core competencies, which has the potential to improve the survival and/or outcomes of severely injured patients.
