Aim of the course
The pharmaceutical class of halogenated anaesthetics includes halotane and enflurane, which have been largely replaced by the more recently developed isoflurane, sevoflurane and desflurane, less soluble in tissues and with a better cardiovascular tolerance.
Sevoflurane and desflurane are characterized by a more rapid kinetic. The clinical advantages of such a profile are faster induction and awakening and better control. All the halogenated anaesthetics, regardless of their individual cost, are cheaper choices (especially if used with a closed circuit or a low fresh gas flow input) when compared to intravenous agents also if we consider the comparably fast, or even faster, awakening.
Anyway, the combination of inhalational and intravenous agents in a balanced anaesthesia technique carries important advantages in general anaesthesia management, both in terms of patient’s comfort and safety and in terms of costs.
The course aims to deepen the knowledge of the principles, theoretical background but also the practical aspects of modern balanced anesthesia, with particular attention to the use of desflurane and sevoflurane in combination with intravenous drugs, mainly opioids. The course will consist of a theoretical classroom session and of three practical parts (the computer-based microsimulation, the macrosimulation with advanced electronic simulators (Human Patient Simulator by METI) scale 1:1 and then directly into the operating room. This will allow interaction of the participants with the group of expert trainers and tutors belonging to different anesthesia sub-specialties (general surgery, thoracic, vascular, neurological, gynecological). The evaluation of the anesthetic techniques will also be evaluated using non-invasive hemodynamic monitoring (Picco, Vigileo, PRAM).
