  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
