Society for Pediatric Anesthesia (SPA) - American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Pediatric Anesthesiology 2020 is organized by the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia (SPA). The symposium is held from Feb 28 - Mar 01, 2020, at Atlantis Bahamas, Paradise Island, New Providence, Bahamas. The SPA-AAP Pediatric Anesthesiology 2020 Meeting is a meeting of ‘FIRSTS.’ Here is a list of just a few: * International Venue – The Bahamas! * Afternoon Tracks – Academic Practice, Community/Private Practice, Research, Professional Development * Concurrent Videography of Sessions * Most number of speakers featured on stage * Lightning Abstracts * Most diverse- region, gender, ethnicity * Most non-anesthesiologists on stage Very excited to continue reaching a wider audience and prioritizing the relevance of the program to a vast group of practitioners with first-ever addition of afternoon TRACKS. This includes separate afternoon pathways of topics relevant to academic practice, community-based practice, research, and professional development. The tracks will be concurrent, and YES they will be videotaped so you can purchase all video files for future viewing and reference. A conference participant is NOT bound to one single track or pathway, as the participant can attend various talks/panels in different tracks. This is an effort to provide additional opportunities for personalized learning over the duration of the meeting, especially as membership and conference participants have a wide variety of practice backgrounds, interests and goals. Lecture formats will be shorter to ensure we keep the audience’s attention and will incorporate a talented group of diverse speakers within the program. Will emphasize the International Theme by incorporating speakers from Europe (ESPA), Australia (SPANZA), The Bahamas, South Africa, and the Americas. In fact, we will start the first morning with an international myth-busters themed session. The second session will focus on complex ethical challenges, and how they are managed in a variety of countries. We look forward to AAP Advocacy Lecture focusing on climate change and its implication on pediatric health. On Friday afternoon we will have concurrent sessions; including PEDx Updates addressing fetal surgery, behavior economics, embracing conflict and reducing opioids. community/private practice speakers will be addressing office-based anesthesia, medico-legal updates, a refresher for providing anesthesia for cardiac patients having non-cardiac surgery, and how to launch an infant spinal program (from the surgical and anesthesia perspective). research track will incorporate a variety of topics ranging from benchtop science to translational/clinical outcomes and conclude with a highly anticipated emerging research panel discussion. We will also have a very important session addressing vaccinations and anesthesia during the afternoon. We have an excellent and select group of workshops available for the audience in the afternoon, all of which will be 2 hours in duration this year. the first day will conclude with a networking cocktail reception which should wrap up early in the evening to allow for enjoyment on the resort and island. On Saturday morning we will hear from a surgeon who is the Director of Transformation and Growth, discussing Digital Disruption of Academic Medicine. This will be followed by a colleague from Sydney, Australia discussing collaborative efforts utilizing near-infrared spectroscopy. AAP Ask the Experts session will focus on managing challenging patient behavior in the perioperative environment. SPA Distinguished International Scholar from South Africa will be providing Global Anesthesia updates, including describing the SAFE Paediatric Anaesthesia course. During poster presentation and awards sessions, we will also feature the first ‘lightning abstract’ session, which will highlight and preview a handful of the top abstracts, as the authors deliver a one-minute, impactful summary on the main stage. On Saturday afternoon we will continue track of PEDx updates, including discussion of the future of training programs in pediatric anesthesia, perioperative pathway management, innovative telemedicine updates, and effective coaching and mentoring. community/private practice track will discuss how to convince the C-suite for staffing solutions, given by a Chief Financial Officer of a pediatric hospital. This will be followed by updates in extubation criteria and postoperative apnea in neonates. This session will conclude with a discussion of another ‘first,’ how a private practice anesthesia group created an anesthesiology residency program.

Medical Education Resources is a provider of continuing nursing education by the California Board of Registered Nursing, Provider #CEP 12299, for  contact hours. Description: Improved techniques, new, safer sclerosing agents, and high patient demand for in-office aesthetic procedures makes Sclerotherapy Training for nurses and physicians a must for any physician practice wishing to expand their services. Over 80 million Americans suffer from unsightly venous disease and the vast majority (75%) of these is cosmetic in nature which you will understand and be able to treat after completing the training. Visible veins give the impression of age and poor health and though many people wish to receive treatment, they are unaware of the safety, effectiveness, and lack of discomfort associated with newer sclerotherapy methods. Sclerotherapy by injection uses small amounts of detergent solutions to irritate the vein walls and achieve ultimate closure of the unwanted vein. Cosmetic laser centers and vein clinics perform these procedures not only because they are lucrative and simple to perform, but also because their patients receive impressive results using both laser vein therapies and traditional sclerotherapy using FDA approved detergent sclerosants. EMT's comprehensive sclerotherapy training will take you from the prospective patient through the consultation process as well as teach you the latest techniques and protocols used today. Program Overview: The Sclerotherapy seminar is a combination lecture and workshop where learners will participate in didactic lectures in the morning followed by hands on training in the afternoon. Learners will understand how to use FDA approved sclerosants for various cosmetic vein indications and will also gain a proficiency in the administration as well. The purpose of the training is to help learners provide enhanced patient care to those who present themselves with various medical and cosmetic vein conditions. Procedures which have not been taught in their previous medical education. Learning Outcomes: • To acquire the necessary skills to properly identify the ideal candidate who will maximally benefit from the Aesthetic Procedures and will also acquire the technical skills to perform such skills to benefit patients aesthetically. • To educate physicians further concerning their base knowledge of venous anatomy and pathophysiology of medical and aesthetic venous disease. Improve their diagnostic skills concerning medical associated venous disease and improve patient outcomes. • To acquire the necessary skills to properly identify the ideal candidate for cosmetic sclerotherapy through physical examination and be able to administer treatments in a safe and efficacious manner for greater patient satisfaction. Educational Objectives: • Practice procedures such as cosmetic sclerotherapy injections competently, safely, and effectively for their patient. Each participant will understand and learn how to avoid risks and associated complications. • Apply and understand the generally accepted protocols for the administration of the (2) FDA Approved sclerosants for aesthetic indications (i.e. unwanted arterioles, telangiectasias, and reticular veins). Learn the proper guidelines for the acquisition, patient charting, administration issues (i.e. medical intake forms, informed consents) and the corrective measures for adverse events. • Describe the mechanism of action and basic venous anatomy, differences between the product characteristics, managing expectations, and accepted after care for follow up after the sclerotherapy procedure. • Identify who is a proper candidate for the aesthetic sclerotherapy procedure, patient benefits, and education concerning the development of unwanted veins and other environmental reasons for their development. Increase patient awareness and offer enhanced patient care in relation to the management of these unwanted legs and facial veins.
