Session 1Pediatric Surgery and Pediatric Nursing

Pediatric Surgery is a branch of pediatrics. Pediatric surgery has been recognized as recently as in mid-20th century. Pediatric Surgery involves the surgery of foetal, neonatal, infants, children, adolescents, and teenagers. Pediatric surgery ascended in the middle of the 20th century as the surgical care of Pediatrics. This session discusses the latest advanced technologies in pediatric surgery, and the pediatric patient peri-operative management care, fetal diagnosis and surgical interventions, pediatric surgical nutrition, pediatric surgical education, congenital diaphragmatic hernia, etc. There are several types of surgery such as pediatric invasive surgery, pediatric endocrine surgery, pediatric bone tumors, foot and ankle surgery, pediatric obesity surgery, pediatric cardiology surgery and so on.

Session 2Pediatric Cardiac Surgery

Pediatric Cardiac surgery deals with the heart and its related problems where surgery is necessary. There is an alarming rate of increase in the number of neonates with congenital heart deficiencies across the world. With the help of pathologists, and diagnostic experts, pediatric surgery deals with heart problems such as pediatric heart abnormalities, pediatric congenital heart defects, atrial, ventricular septal defects, pediatric open heart surgery, pediatric cardiothoracic surgery, performing diagnostic procedures for example echocardiograms, pediatric cardiomyopathy, complete atrioventricular canal defect (cavc), cardiac catheterizations and electrophysiology studies. This session discusses the various techniques and technologies available for pediatric cardiac surgery and what more advanced technologies are needed to strengthen pediatric cardiac surgery.

Session 4Pediatric Ophthalmic Surgery

Pediatric ophthalmic surgery and ophthalmic care in children is a must. We cannot take risk of children going blind for any reasons. Children may not complain all the time about their eye problems. Only their performance in studies and their poor blurring vision makes it hard for them we come to know of their eye problems. Hence, parents must take care of their children and immediately bring them to the pediatric ophthalmologists and in serious cases to pediatric ophthalmic surgeons. The eye problems in children are generally vision impairment, cataract or opacification of the lens, refractive errors, squint and lazy eye or amblyopia. Newborns may develop retinopathy of pre-maturity (ROP) which leads to permanent blindness. This session throws light on pediatric ophthalmic surgery and the major developments, the latest technologies, the application of laser and nanotechnology and robotics in pediatric ophthalmic patient care.  

Session 5Pediatric Surgical Nursing

Pediatric surgical nursing is the science of childcare and treatment of children ranging from newborns to adolescents. Pediatric surgical nursing requires special training and expertise in handling children during pre-operative and post-operative and during surgical procedures. Pediatric surgical nurse delivers patient care during peri-operative period, which means during, before and after surgery. Apart from taking care of pediatric patients, the surgical nurse also supports and assists surgeons, surgical technicians, anesthetists and pathologists.

Session 14Pediatric Preoperative Care and Anesthesiology

The rise of deaths every year due to infectious diseases is causing widespread alarm and concern across Pediatric preoperative care and anesthesiology promotes an environment satisfactory for the preoperative and perioperative anesthesia care of newborns and adolescents. Such an environment reduces the risk for adverse events and provides the safety and wellbeing of infants and children. Decreasing the risks of anesthesia for children have generated proposals for implementing performance based clinical privileging, recommending that well-trained qualified anesthesiologists provide anesthesia for children for a certain specific age children. Further recommendations mandate that all infants and critically ill children be given anesthesia by qualified specialist anesthesiologists. This session debates about the pediatric preoperative care and anesthesiology and the safety measures that need to be taken and bring down the morbidity and mortal rate.    

Session 15General Pediatrics

Pediatrics is the study of patient care management and treatment of diseases and illnesses in children up to the age 15 years; from neonatal to newborns to growing children and adolescents.
