The BELGIAN ANESTHESIA TRAINEES (BAT) is an independent organisation that represents the interests of the Belgian anesthesia trainees in different institutions on different levels. All BAT members act voluntarily and without financial compensation to improve the position of Belgian anesthesia trainees by elaborating the BAT vision points and adhering to the BAT aims.

BACKGROUND: Practice patterns surrounding awake extubation of pediatric surgical patients remain largely undocumented. This study assessed the value of commonly used predictors of fitness for extubation to determine which were most salient in predicting successful extubation following emergence from general anesthesia with a volatile anesthetic in young children.
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Surgery, invasive procedures and anesthesia itself may induce an inflammatory response in the patient. This represents an evolutionary inherited and conserved response of the host to environmental stimuli and may lead to both beneficial and potentially harmful effects. This review highlights the mechanisms of anesthesia-induced and perioperative immune modulation.
The general assembly of the BAT will start after the last lecture of the morning session, at 10.00 AM on Saturday 23/11/2019 at the SARB annual meeting.
The meeting will only take 5-10 minutes so there will be some time left for a coffee afterwards. We invite all members to attend the general assembly.
Meeting topics - Opening statement - Overview BAT - Achievements of the BAT 2019 - Financial Statement - Upcoming events
We hope to see you there!
Peri-operative Medicine is the patient-centred and value-based multidisciplinary peri-operative care of surgical patients. Peri-operative stress, that is the collective response to stimuli occurring before, during and after surgery, is, together with pre-existing comorbidities, the pathophysiological basis of major adverse events. The ultimate goal of Peri-operative Medicine is to promote high quality recovery after surgery. Clinical scores and/or biomarkers should be used to identify patients at high risk of developing major adverse events throughout the peri-operative period.
Postoperative pulmonary complications (PPCs) occur frequently and are associated with substantial morbidity and mortality. Evidence suggests that reduction of PPCs can be accomplished by using lung-protective ventilation strategies intraoperatively, but a consensus on perioperative management has not been established. We sought to determine recommendations for lung protection for the surgical patient at an international consensus development conference.
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The aim of this article is to review the evidence regarding the anesthetic management of blood loss, pain control, and position-related complications of adult patients undergoing complex spine procedures.
Dear BAT members,
This year our collegues of the SARB organizes anesthesia workshops at a very low price at the SARB Annual Meeting! Try to be one of the beneficiaries. Registration is open!
=> Anesthesia residents can take part at reduced prices! Places are limited!
Workshop 1: Ultrasound in anesthesia
Workshop 2: The difficult airway
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Summarize the current thinking concerning the clinically relevant aspects of nerve anatomy and best injection sites for nerve blocks.
