This course is aimed at junior registrars about to start or during their neuroanaesthesia attachment and placement on neurointensive care. This is the first neuroanaesthesia simulation course run in Oxford based on a very successful national course.

Course information

The day comprises of lectures on neurosurgery, neuroanaesthesia and anaesthesia for neuroradiology. It also encompasses extensive simulation training giving the opportunity to candidates to run through scenarios and emergencies they might encounter when oncall. The afternoon is dedicated to the journey of a patient with a head injury through their initial presentation to the emergency department, through to theatres and then finally to the neurointensive care unit. There are many factors and pitfalls that need to be considered when caring for patients with neurosurgical problems and this course aims to provide practical advice for the gold standard of care.

All the material covered in this course are carefully selected and are an important part of the curriculum for the final FRCA.
