Maja Drożdżyńska

DVM, MVetMed, DipECVAA, MRCVS

Maja graduated from the Wroclaw University of Environmental and Life Sciences in Poland in 2010. After graduation she worked for two years at the same university in the Surgical Department where her main focus was anaesthesia and emergency critical care. She moved to the UK in 2012 where she undertook an Internship at the University of Liverpool. After its successful completion she has started three years speciality training in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia at the Royal Veterinary College in London. In 2018 as the first polish person, she passed the exam and became the European Specialist in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia. Since then she is working in large private hospital in south of England (Dick White Referrals) where she has pleasure to teach the new generations of anaesthesia specialists. The main subjects of her current research interests are the ultrasound-guided loco-regional techniques. Her continues passion for this subject has led to the first description of some of the new compartmental block techniques as subcostal transversus abdominis plane block or suitable for thoracic wall procedures: serratus plane block.

Practical workshops

Due to the huge interest in practical workshops during our last conference, we have prepared 48 seats for you on workshops on Global FAST and on peripheral and compartmental nerve blocks! Those workshops will take place in two rounds and will be conducted by lecturers and their assistants.

We will practice the technique of performing the examination according to the Global FAST protocol, including AFAST, TFAST and VetBLUE. Practice on patients in teams of 3.

We will practice peripheral blockages of the anterior, posterior and intramural limbs. Practice on preparations in teams of 4.
