Capture VAST logo


Vital Anaesthesia Simulation Training (VAST) is a three-day programme reflecting practice at the district hospital in a low-resource setting.  Predominantly using simulation, the course centres on anaesthesia and resuscitation for obstetrics, paediatrics and trauma as well as safe general surgery, pre- and post-operative care, with an underlining focus on non-technical skills. Targeted case-based discussions and skills stations further explore non-technical skills, trauma primary survey, difficult airway management, neonatal resuscitation, pain management and complex decision making. More information can be found on the VAST website:
