By Department of Anaesthesiology in SGH
The FACT (Fundamentals of Airway and Central Line Insertion Techniques) workshop is organised and run by the Department of Anaesthesiology in SGH to teach core and advanced airway skills as well as haemodynamic monitoring and invasive lines insertion.
The airway section of the course is designed to teach core airway skills and ensure plenty of hands on practice in using all the various airway equipment for elective and emergency airway cases.
The haemodynamic session reviews cardiac output monitoring and involves hands on practice in central line setting, arterial line insertion as well as chest tube insertion.
Participants get to spend a day with experienced anaesthesiologist from the department, who will share his experience through hands-on guidance and tips at the clinical skills station.
The knowledge and skills learnt from this course will form a firm foundation in fundamental handling of the upper airway as well as haemodynamic monitoring and invasive line insertion.
