A one day course designed to showcase the latest in Transnasal Oesophagoscopy (TNO) technology has been announced by healthcare supplies firm, DP Medical Systems.
The interactive course is set to take place on Friday 10 February 2017 at QE Hospital in Birmingham and will see a faculty of experts deliver educational lectures on the technology and its application, before delivering an afternoon of live, hands-on skills station demonstrations for attendees.
The course faculty is made up of consultant head and neck surgeons Mriganka De, Yakubu Karagama – Consultant Otolaryngologist; senior speech and language therapist Kate Young; consultant ENT surgeon Declan Costello; and George Garas SpR ENT – Head and Neck surgery.
Owen Pemberton, commercial director at DP Medical Systems – hosts of the event, said: “We’re really looking forward to welcoming consultants, ENT SpRs and trainees to our Transnasal Oesophagoscopy Course in Birmingham in early 2017.
“The outpatient technology – which consists of a fibreoptic camera that is put up the nose into the throat and oesophagus – is quick and pain-free for patients, and is a great way of assessing those areas in just five minutes.
“Performed in the Outpatient Department, it can save hospitals money by early diagnosis of impending oesophageal problems, plus can often avoid the need to treat patients in the operating theatre with a full anaesthetic.
“Some patients are not fit enough for a general anaesthetic, so TNO is an alternative performed with a local, topical anaesthetic spray.
“We’ll be working with the faculty to deliver an informative and engaging course that shows how easy the procedure is, as well as providing hands-on experience.”
The course, which runs from 09:30am – 4:00pm and costs £150 for consultants or £100 for ENT SpRs and trainees, also counts towards six CPD credits.
