Workshops - Day 1

Philips Workshop

Topic:

Patient Deterioration; Addressing the human factor

Times:

09:15  – 09:45 
30 Min Session

Synopsis:

It has become increasingly apparent that many doctors and nursing staff are unable to manage a deteriorating patient in an appropriate, timely fashion. Several clinical studies clearly show that delaying resuscitation increases the likelihood of organs failing due to inadequate oxygen delivery to these tissues. This in turn can lead to unexpected death, unexpected cardiac arrests, and unplanned admissions to the critical care unit.

Medical care is extremely complex and this complexity coupled with inherent human performance limitations, even in skilled, experienced, highly motivated individuals, ensures there will be mistakes.

Speakers:

Paul Hinchley

Clinical Manager, Connected Care

Topic:

Physiology for the Biomed

Times:

11:00 – 11:45
45 Min Session

Synopsis:

Basic level physiology and how it relates to patient monitoring. Understanding Physiology adds context to the technology solutions used in patient monitoring, bridging the gap between technology and clinical care .

Speakers:

Phil Osborne

Pre Sale Co-ordinator

Topic:

In House Repair and Maintenance of the new Philips 867041 CO2 Unit

Times:

13.30 – 14.15
45 Min Session

Synopsis:

Unlike earlier generations that had to be factory exchanged, all parts are available to hospital biomed engineers for our new CO2 extension modules.

This session will demonstrate how swift replacement of damaged or failed parts can be undertaken  – thus saving the hospital a significant amount of time and reducing costs – and how the unit can be calibrated and tested post repair.

Speakers:

Stewart Clarke

Technical Training Engineer

Topic:

Ultrasound servicing: Identifying the problem!

Times:

15.15 – 15.45
30 Min Session

Synopsis:

Being able to investigate the problem is half the job sometimes. With this session you will be taken through the switch-on sequence to help you determine what and where the problem lays. This will help when reporting the problem, meaning that we can send the correct resource and parts for first time right jobs.

Speakers:

Harry Howie

Ultrasound – Technical Modality Lead
