Workshop Introduction

General principles apply when providing anaesthesia and critical care for liver transplant recipient patients although there are several unique considerations as a result of the underlying disease process and complications. Working in a liver transplant operating theatre and/or intensive care setting can also be potentially stressful. Teamwork skillsets such as leadership, effective communication and resource utilisation are very useful and important.

The specific areas of focus include:

  1. Conduct of anaesthesia for the liver transplant recipient, including management of potential critical events
  2. Perioperative haemodynamics monitoring and management
  3. Perioperative coagulation monitoring and management

CME points will be awarded.

Who should attend?
  • Senior Anaesthesia/Critical Care Residents and Clinical Fellows with an interest in liver transplant anaesthesia and critical care
  • Junior Consultant Anaesthetists and/or Intensivists with above interest
  • Anaesthetic nurses or assistants working in a liver transplant operating theatre or Intensive Care Unit
