News from our Member Societies (September - December 2017)

5th Congress of the Asian Society of Neuroanesthesia and Critical Care (ASNACC) held in Singapore

ASNACCFrom 17th -19th August 2017, the 5th Congress of the Asian Society of Neuroanesthesia and Critical Care (ASNACC) was held in Singapore, in conjunction with the 20th annual General Scientific Meeting (GSM) of the Singapore Society of Anesthesiologists (SSA).

The biennial ASNACC Congress, Asia’s leading conference on neuroanesthesia and neurocritical care, provides a common platform for thought-leaders across diverse Asian countries to collaborate on improving care for the neurosurgical and neurologic patient population. The invited faculty included speakers from South Korea (Hae-kyu Kim, Jae-young Kwon and Hee-Pyoung Park); Indonesia (Tatang Bisri, Sri Rahardjo and Putu Pramana); India (Hari Dash, Dilip Kulkarni and Girija Rath); China, including Hong Kong (Han Ruquan and Matthew Chan); Japan (Kenji Yoshitani and Mishiya Matsumoto); Malaysia (Vanithan Sivanaser); Thailand (Phuping Akavipat); Philippines (Geraldine Jose) and Singapore (Thomas Lew, Kwek Tong Kiat, See Jee Jian, Mandy Lim, Beatrice Lim, Chong Shang Yee, Chong Chin Ted, Jensen Ng, Aaron Lee, Chen Xinying, Ng Wai Hoe). Professor Adrian Gelb (USA), Secretary of the WFSA and Professor Andrew Kofke (USA), immediate past President of Society of Neuroscience in Anesthesiology and Critical Care (SNACC) compiled the extensive list of the speaking faculty.

Building on the theme “A Meeting of Minds”, highlights of the scientific program included two plenary lectures entitled “Overturning Doctrines - Revisiting the Pressure Autoregulation Curve and Monroe-Kellie Doctrine” and “Myths in Anesthetic depth monitoring” as well as sessions focusing on areas such as Neurocritical Care – Controversies and Consensus; Awake Craniotomy; Neuroanesthesia – Improving Outcomes (Day 1) and Hemorrhagic Stroke; Pituitary and Neurovascular; Expert Panel Discussion (Day 2).

A record number of 378 delegates from 15 countries and territories attended. The congress received a total of 79 scientific abstracts for poster presentations. The top prizes for the Neuroanesthesia and Neurocritical Care category were awarded to Dr Mohamad Hasyizan Hassan of Hospital Universiti Sains, Malaysia for the presentation on “Balanced Fluid Versus Saline-Based Fluid In Postoperative Severe Traumatic Brain Injury Patients: Acid-Base And Electrolytes Assessment”, and Dr Young-kwon Ko of Chungnam National Hospital on “Multiple Sevoflurane Exposures During Pregnancy Do Not Affect Memory And Synaptic Plasticity In Offspring Mice”.

 

Hospital Melaka Department of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care, Malaysia celebrated World Anaesthesia Day 2017

"The Count Me In! campaign was created to share the importance of human resources and anaesthetic providers for the care of patients in the Operating Theatre, Intensive Care Unit or wherever anaesthetic services are required. The Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Department of Hospital Melaka championed the theme with an initiative to educate the public on the role of anaesthetic providers in the management of patients and the range of services we provide in a hospital.

WAD Malaysia 3To jump start the campaign this year, we held a “Count Me In!” fun walk. All categories of anaesthetic staff and their families participated on 29th October, 2017. At 07:30 children as young as 5 years old were seen enthusiastically cycling, and doctors and staff from the operating theatre as well as ICU were seen ardently stretching before embarking on the walk.

We decided on an Anaesthesia Week instead of an Anaesthesia Day, with the hope of reaching out to a greater percentage of the public. Celebrations started from the 30th October 2017 and continued until the 3rd November 2017. Our detailed posters went up in the main lobby of Hospital Melaka on the morning of the 30th October 2017. The posters illustrated our services from our role as pre-anaesthetic physicians, the varied anaesthetic techniques applied in our anaesthetic suite, our care for patients postoperatively either in the intensive care unit or under the acute pain service umbrella in the wards, our role during labour in the form of labour epidural, the provision of remote and day care anaesthesia and our chronic pain clinic services, to name a few.

WAD Malaysia 2

Our Head of Department, Dr Zainal Abidin Bin Othman gave a very informative welcome address in the lobby of the hospital and mentioned how the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists (WFSA) had partnered with Member Societies across the WFSA Regional Sections to share the “Count Me In!” campaign with anaesthesia providers globally for increased awareness and support for scaling up human resources for anaesthesia."

 

Updates from the Korean Society of Anesthesiologists

The Korean Society of Anesthesiologists (KSA) hosted five panel discussion meetings on the topic of “The Safety of Patients under Anaesthesia” in Cheongju, Incheon, Seoul, Daegu, and Busan, the five major cities in Korea. The purpose of these meetings was to inform the general public about the potential danger in patients receiving anaesthetic care from anaesthesia providers who have not been adequately trained. Journalists, public officials, and social organizations also participated in the panel discussions.

The KSA’s 2nd international meeting, “94th Annual Meeting of Korean Society of Anaesthesiologists” (KoreAnesthesia 2017) was held in the K-Hotel, Seoul, Korea, November 2 – 4, 2017. The catch phrase of KoreAnesthesia 2017 was “Beyond perioperative safety and quality, Anaesthesia for Surgical Home”. About 2,000 domestic and international attendees enjoyed the Scientific Program consisting of 8 refresher sessions, 43 anaesthesia-specialty sessions, and 10 workshops led by 40 foreign-invited faculty members.

WFSA gives statement at WHO Special Session of the Executive Board 

philippe at WHOLast month the WFSA was present at the Special Session of the Executive Board on a draft thirteenth General Programme of Work (GPW13) to give a statement on the importance of WHA Resolution 68.15 ͞'Strengthening Emergency and Essential Surgical Care and Anaesthesia as an essential component of Universal Health Coverage', urging the Executive Board to prioritise surgery and anaesthesia in GPW 13 in support of the Resolution. The statement given was as follows:

"The World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists commends WHO on the thirteenth General Programme of Work.

WFSA represents hundreds of thousands of anaesthesiologists in 140 countries and works to achieve universal access to safe anaesthesia, directly contributing to SDG3. We supported WHA Resolution 68.15 “Strengthening Emergency and Essential Surgical Care and Anaesthesia as a Component of Universal Health Coverage” and are proud to have been highlighted in the progress report.

There cannot be UHC without a scale up of surgical services. Surgical care has long been neglected and it is estimated that each year more than four times as many people die from surgical conditions than HIV, tuberculosis and malaria combined. These surgical conditions span health related SDGs including maternal health, NCDs, and road traffic injuries.

who logoSafe surgery depends on safe anaesthesia. Anaesthesia is complex and potentially hazardous, and optimal patient care depends on anaesthesia being provided, led or overseen by an anaesthesiologist. The WFSA offers its support in helping achieve WHO’s top strategic priority: to strengthen health systems in order to progress towards UHC.

We have developed quality training and education for physicians and non-physicians, alongside capacity assessment for planning and a global workforce survey. The survey revealed that 136,000 physician anaesthesia providers are needed today to achieve a minimum density of 5 per 100,000 population in all countries.

Surgical conditions represent 30% of the global burden of disease. As Director General Tedros himself said in a letter to the Royal Colleges of Surgeons of Edinburgh, Glasgow and Ireland, “Access to surgical services and anaesthesia is something to which I am deeply committed”. WFSA commends that commitment and calls on the Executive Board to prioritise surgery and anaesthesia in GPW 13 in support of Resolution 68.15 and the achievement of Universal Health Coverage by 2030."

WFSA Council Member Dr Philippe Mavoungou addressed the delegation, to watch him present the WFSA statement please click here.

WFSA President sends seasons greetings (in English, Español and Français)

gonzalo barreiroThe time has come around again for me to send season’s greetings to the whole WFSA network. As the WFSA continues to work tirelessly to close the gap in anaesthesia and surgery provision that has left five of the world’s seven billion people without access to safe and affordable care when needed, I would like to recognise the hard work of societies and individuals playing a role.

The scale of the crisis is so huge that it is impossible for one organisation working alone to make a difference. The WFSA is extremely grateful for our network of 130+ Member Societies, and their individual members, who contribute to our projects around the world.

As we continue to tackle the surgery and anaesthesia crisis, and ensure anaesthesiologists are represented in the highest level discussions, we must take a multidisciplinary approach. Anaesthesiologists must work with surgeons, nurses, physician and non-physician providers, decision-makers, and industry to create National Surgical, Obstetric and Anaesthetic Plans (NSOAPs) that will be the policy roadmaps for improved national anaesthesia provision and patient safety in the future.

There is no room for volunteerism without lasting solutions. Patient safety goes first and inadequate surgical treatment will have a disastrous effects on the whole health system. The WFSA intends to lead the way as the voice of global anaesthesiology and I look forward to expanding our collaborations as we enter the year ahead.

The 5 billion are waiting for us.

Best wishes for 2018!
Dr Gonzalo Barreiro

Nuevamente tengo la oportunidad de enviar el mensaje de Fin de Año para toda la WFSA. Mientras la WFSA continúa trabajando incansablemente para cerrar la brecha en anestesia y cirugía, la que ha dejado 5.000 de 7.000 millones de habitantes en el mundo sin acceso a atención asequible y segura , quisiera expresar mi reconocimiento al arduo trabajo desarrollado por las sociedades y sus miembros.

La dimensión de la crisis es tan inmensa, que es imposible que una sola organización trabajando sola pueda producer una diferencia significativa.La WFSA agradece inmensamente a su red de más de 130 sociedades miembros y sus socios, los que contribuyen a nuestros proyectos en todo el mundo.

Mientras continuamos enfrentando la crisis en anestesia y cirugía, asegurando que los anestesiólogos estén representados en las discusiones del más alto niel, nosotros debemos tener una aproximación multidisciplinaria al problema. Los anestesiólogos debemos trabajar con los cirujanos, enfermería, proveedores médicos y no médicos , la industria y con aquellos que pueden tomar las decisiones necesarias para crear Planes Nacionales Anestésicos , Quirúrgicos y Obstétricos (NSOAPs), que serán las hojas de ruta para la mejora de la disponibilidad de anestesia segura para los pacientes .

No hay espacio para el voluntarismo sin soluciones duraderas. La seguridad del paciente va primero.Un inadecuado tratamiento quirúrgico tendrá un efecto desastroso para todo el sistema de salud. La WFSA lidera el camino como la voz global de la anestesiología y espero expander nuestra colaboración cuando empecemos el año entrante.

Cinco mil millones están esperando por nosotros.

Los mejores deseos para el 2018!

Le moment est venu pour moi d'adresser les meilleurs vœux au réseau de la WFSA. Alors que la WFSA continue à travailler sans relâche pour combler le fossé en matière d'anesthésie et de chirurgie, cinq sur sept milliards de personnes dans le monde n'ont toujours pas accès à des soins sûrs et abordables quand cela est nécessaire. Je tiens à reconnaître le travail acharné des sociétés et le rôle joué par les individualités.

L'ampleur de la crise est telle qu'il est impossible pour une organisation travaillant de manière isolée de faire la différence. La WFSA est extrêmement reconnaissante envers notre réseau de plus de 130 sociétés membres, avec leurs adhérents, qui apportent leurs contributions à nos projets dans le monde entier.

En même temps que nous continuons à nous attaquer à la crise de la chirurgie et de l'anesthésie, et que les anesthésistes sont représentés dans les discussions de haut niveau, nous devons adopter une approche multidisciplinaire. Les anesthésiologistes doivent travailler avec les chirurgiens, les infirmières, les médecins et les non-médecins, les décideurs et l'industrie pour élaborer des plans nationaux de chirurgie, d'obstétrique et d'anesthésie qui seront les feuilles de route pour l'anesthésie au niveau national et pour la sécurité des patients.

Un volontariat sans solution durable est vain. La sécurité des patients est prioritaire. Des traitements  chirurgicaux de mauvaise qualité auront des effets désastreux sur l'ensemble du système de santé. La WFSA a l'intention de montrer la voie en tant que porte-parole de l'anesthésiologie mondiale et j'ai hâte d'élargir nos collaborations à l'aube de la nouvelle année.

Les 5 milliards nous attendent.

Meilleurs vœux pour l’année 2018!
