Hot Topics In OBSTETRIC ANESTHESIA
We’re thrilled to announce that the LSA BOARD recently held their first regional meeting on July 18th, 2022. The conference, “Hot Topics in Obstetric Anesthesia: A Collaborative Approach”, was held online from Zahle’s Khoury Hospital and organized in partnership with the Lebanese Society of Obstetrics & Gynecology and the Lebanese Order of Midwives. The meeting aimed to discuss recent developments in obstetric anesthesia and their impact on patient safety and quality of care.
The event was a huge success, featuring three sessions with national and international speakers, including Dr. Anne Sophie Bouthors, Dr. Marie Pierre Bonnet, and our very own Dr. Mohamad Karim Kechli, who works at Olean General Hospital in Buffalo, USA. The moderators also represented a diverse range of specialties, including obstetricians, general surgeons, midwives, and anesthesiologists.
The meeting concluded with an exciting workshop on simulation training, organized by the LAU Clinical Simulation Center, with participation from colleagues at LAU, HDF, and St. Georges Hospital. Many enjoyed the luncheon that followed showcasing Zahle’s renowned hospitality. We’re proud to have had over 300 participants join us for this unforgettable event, and we’re looking forward to many more regional meetings in the future!
