Coordinator for obstetric anaesthesia 

Akademiska Sjukhuset, Uppsala, Sweden 



Dr Christian Seidl

Co-Leader of the anaesthesia department  

Salem Hospital, Hirslanden Group, Switzerland 


Dr Carlos Ferrando, MD,

Target Audience

  • ESAIC members, both trainees and specialists


Methods to promote adult active learning

This webinar will include:

  • Polls: to increase interactivity and engagement. Results from polls will lead to discussions points during each lecture.
  • Q&A session at the end of the webinar: to answer questions brought up by the host and submitted by the audience (in real-time). Questions will be filtered by support staff to prioritise relevance.


Learning Aim

  • To inform healthcare practitioners about the perioperative possibilities of remote monitoring using established methods and modern gadgets. To understand the new technology available for anaesthesiologists with an aim of improving the patient`s outcome during the perioperative periodTo acknowledge the advantages but also limitations of current technology 
  • To get an overview of how new technologies will affect the structure and workflow of anaesthesia departments 


After Taking Part

This webinar will enable the participants to:

  • know that health data can be extracted from wearables and smartphones to evaluate the preoperative patient’s condition  
  • interpret what kind of parameters – especially if they are delivered by non-medical devices (e.g. wearables) – are relevant and reliable  
  • define which related preoperative measures could be taken 
  • Know the new technologies available on continuous and remote monitoring during the peri-operative period and potential benefits to patient outcomes 


Key points

  • Technology is advancing fast and anaesthesiologists need to keep up to date with the new monitoring systems 
  • Wearables are already common in the general population and we need to take advantage of the data we can get to improve the pre-operative assessment of the patients 
  • A rapid response system including early warning scores and rapid response teams may impact the failure to rescue surgical patients.  



  • Starting with two presentations about the different aspects of remote monitoring in the different perioperative time frames will be the first part of the format 
  • After the presentations, an interactive debate involving the questions of the audience and the results of the polls will be the second part of the format  


Learning Objectives

Knowledge to be acquired after attending this Webinar

The participant will be able to:

  • Extract some of the medical data that is provided by standard non-medical devices (e.g. wearables) to support the preoperative patient evaluation 
  • Know the current techniques to monitor the patient remotely during the peri-operative period 
  • Identify the limitations of current technology on continuous and remote monitoring 
  • Knowledge of where technology is going in the near and medium future 
  • Acknowledge that currently there is a lack of guidelines, and more research is needed  
  • Know the current evidence of rapid response systems in surgical patients 


Practical skills to be acquired after attending this Webinar

This webinar will enable participants to:

  • Get an idea of how to possibly use (non-)medical portable technology to improve the quality of the preoperative assessment 
  • Use the gathered health data for support of the decision-making process 
  • How new technology will change the structure and workflow of our anaesthesia departments 


Affective skills acquired after attending this Webinar

The participant is aware of:

  • Changes in the paradigm of anaesthesiologist work 
  • How to embrace technology without feeling threatened by it 
  • How to judge critically the relevance and reliability of the information that is provided by the different available devices 
  • How to inform patients about the relevance of these data for their medical treatment
