April Ophthalmic Block Hands-on Workshop https://www.orlandoconventionaid.com/event_view.php?event_id=1564

November Ophthalmic Block Hands-on Workshop  
https://www.orlandoconventionaid.com/event_view.php?event_id=1565

TARGET AUDIENCE

This course is designed for physicians, certified registered nurse anesthetists, and physician assistants who need to obtain or refresh their ophthalmic anesthesia knowledge and skills.

PROGRAM PURPOSE

Ophthalmic block techniques have long been relegated to the ophthalmologist and the techniques for performing these regional blocks have been omitted from curricula in both nurse and physician anesthesia residency programs. Due to the increasing volume of ophthalmic procedures being performed, the ophthalmologists are now requesting anesthesia professionals provide this service.

This course is designed to provide the didactics of pharmacology, toxicity, anatomy, physiology, techniques, management, and complications of ophthalmic regional blocks.

Simulation training, by way of individual “hands-on” practice under the guidance of a qualified instructor, using an anatomical model, the participant will become familiar with the actual techniques of performing the ophthalmic block techniques.

OBJECTIVES

At the conclusion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

Review the orbital anatomy, cranial nerve pathways, vasculature, and axial lengths during the identification of each technique for ophthalmic regional block anesthesia and the anatomical landmarks for each injection site.

Apply the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of local anesthetic agents in a discussion of the selection, dosing, and intervention for both local and systemic complications of ocular block.

Update techniques for the management of the awake patient undergoing ocular surgery.

Outline appropriate risk management, CQI, and departmental management programs for the provision of full ocular anesthesia service.

To benefit more from this course, it is recommended that the participant review the orbital regional anatomy prior to attending.

This program does not certify a participant to administer an ophthalmic block. Clinical privileges to administer an ophthalmic block must be approved by the governing body of your facility.

Testimony by a recent participant:
“Randy provided really clear and cohesive anatomical explanations for the techniques he taught. His teaching style was engaging, the content was comprehensive, and the workshops made sense. When I arrived home, I felt confident that my new found knowledge would make my blocks successful and keep my patients safe.” Michael Bailin, MD, Dept of Anesthesiology, MGH, Boston, Massachusetts.

The workshops have attracted practitioners from throughout the U.S., as well as, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Hong Kong, Ireland, Jordan, Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

He has served the OAS as a Scientific Board Member, Secretary and Co-Chair of the 2014 Annual OAS Meeting.

1987 – Mr. Harvey recognized a growing demand by ophthalmologists for anesthesia practitioners to perform ophthalmic blocks and began lecturing on the subject. He has since lectured extensively on ophthalmic anesthesia in seminars, including presentations to state and national anesthesia organizations. He has also presented training programs to private practice anesthesiology groups in Florida, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Texas, and Virginia.

1991 – He began the Ophthalmic Block Workshop in conjunction with NWAS. He also developed an orbital eye-model simulator which allows a hands-on experience for the participants. This program has run continuously for 26 years and has educated hundreds of anesthesiologists, CRNAs, and ophthalmologists in the art and science of ophthalmic anesthesia.
