Thoracic Drainage Workshop

The chest drainage workshop was developed for students particularly devoted to “hands on training” who want to experience this extremely important procedure of emergency surgery. The workshop is tailored to your practice, offering simulation under realistic condition by using animal models and synthetic surgical simulator to apply the skills related to thoracic drainage, needle decompression, three- sided dressing and thoracentesis. After a theoretical review about chest drainage, its indication, proceeding, management and complication, the student has 2/3 of the workshop dedicated to the opportunity to have the instruments in his/her hand, being clinically oriented and interacting with participants and tutors, discovering tips & tricks for facing life-threatening conditions and save the patient.
