This Tuesday, the Anaesthetics and Critical Care Society are set to host an evening dedicated to Neuroanaesthesia at the Newcastle University medical school.
Dr. Katherine Bell, a Consultant Anaesthetist at the Royal Victoria Infirmary will lead the evening, opening with a talk at half past six. The talk its self will delve into the physiology of neuroanaesthetics, the effects of head injuries on physiology and how to manage these cases. Dr. Bell has a special interest in Neuroanaesthesia and is a Training Programme Director in the Northern School of Anaesthesia and the ICM.
For those interested in Neuroanaesthesia, Dr. Bell offers early clinical experience placements for second year students and SSCs for elective fourth years.
Following the talk, students will have the chance to become involved with multiple workshops surrounding CT head interpretation, the management of bleeds and fluid balance management in head injuries. In addition, there will also run a cannulation workshop to refresh students clinical skills.
Students hoping to become involved with the event must be a member of the NSACC. However, it isn’t too late to sign up which can be done through the society’s official NUSU webpage. Alternatively, for more information on what the society are up to, you can visit their Facebook page.
