A two-days live educational masterclass, endorsed by EACTA, based on two main parts:
the practical one (Day 1), to gain skills in:

  1. hands-on airway management, lung isolation/separation tools, and pain management interventions (e.g. thoracic epidural and paravertebral and truncal blockades)
  2. decision-making through simulation-based learning in cases of experiencing hypoxaemia, increased airway pressures and other ventilator-related problems during thoracic surgery and anaesthesia
  3. animal-lab based training on haemodynamic management in case of hypovolaemia, vasodilatation and hypervolaemia.

the theoretical one (Day 2), focused on:

  1. perioperative assessment, optimisation and care of thoracic surgery patients,
  2. a round-table open discussions on challenges in ventilation management during one-lung ventilation and thoracic surgery,
  3. anaesthetics, haemodynamic and fluid therapy for patients who undergo thoracic surgery,
  4. choices for pain management after thoracic surgery
  5. future of thoracic anaesthesia in terms of none-opioid-based anaesthesia, robotic thoracic surgery, non-intubated thoracic anaesthesia, tracheal surgery, education in thoracic anaesthesia and future EACTA Consensus on Good Clinical Practice in Thoracic Anaesthesia.
