ABCs OF ABGs Wednesday 18th August 2021 0700-0800HRS (EAT)

Using the power of Mathematica™ and computational physiology, we intend to explore the Henderson-Hasselbalch Equation and the Boston Approach to assess compensation during Arterial Blood Gas Analysis.

Aims:

  • Assess adequacy of compensation in acid-base disorders.
  • Diagnose mixed acid-base disorders.
Dr. Idris Chikophe
The neonate with difficulties waking up post General Anaesthesia Wednesday 18th August 2021 0700-0800HRS (EAT) To explore rare challenges during reversal of General Anaesthesia in the neonate and discuss their diagnosis and management. Dr. Angela Onyando
Epidural analgesia for trial of scar Thursday 19th August 2021 0700-0800HRS (EAT) Explore the twists and turns that may challenge any Anaesthesiologist managing a parturient with epidural analgesia for trial of vaginal birth after cesarean section. Dr. Lee Ngugi & Dr. Antony Kamau
Negligence in medical practice Thursday 19th August 2021 0700-0800HRS (EAT) Using previous rulings from the Kenyan courts ,we intend to explore the different elements of medical negligence Dr. Jacqueline Andhoga
Applicability of difficult airway guidelines in a COVID-19 patient Friday 20th August 2021 0700-0800HRS (EAT) What were the possible options and what is the correct decision making process to securing the airway in a patient with history of COVID-19 presenting with progressive obstruction from multiple cystic masses in the neck and oropharyngeal cavity? What is the applicability of the difficult airway management algorithms in this patient? Dr. Mark Gacii
The high risk neonate for urgent surgery where General Anaesthesia will be a challenge. Friday 20th August 2021 0700-0800HRS (EAT) The case discussion will review management of malignant hyperthermia in a resource limited setting and use of regional anaesthesia in neonates. Dr. Nancy Okonu
