Sunday 10 October

In person attendance only

This workshop covers all the skills you’ll need to comprehensively assess the upper airway, nose, pharynx and larynx from a functional breathing perspective. Lectures will cover in detail the use of endoscopy to assess nasal function, anatomical contributors to nasal obstruction, allergy, rhinosinusitis, lymphoid tissue and the detailed awake and asleep assessment of the patient with OSA.
Hands on time will be spent in small groups learning and practicing upper airway examination skills, as well as upper airway endoscopy techniques. Participants should be comfortable applying upper airway examination skills in their own practice to assess patients with problematic sleep and breathing disorders. The workshop will be valuable for sleep physicians, dental sleep medicine practitioners, general ENT surgeons, sleep technologists and anyone else who manages disorders of the upper airway.

This short course will address challenging aspects of ventilatory support in paediatric patients. It will discuss practical considerations, approach to management when ventilation is difficult and considerations when using ventilatory support in children with life-limiting conditions, including the additional ethical challenges that can arise in this situation.
Join this course in person at Queensland Children’s Hospital or online via Zoom (not the main virtual conference platform). Note that you need to register separately for this course via the ASA website. You can’t register through the main conference registration system.
Sessions will be presented by experts in this field, with speakers from both local and overseas centres. Challenging cases will be presented to facilitate discussion and to highlight situations where ventilation may be considered to improve stability and quality of life.
