Exacerbation of bronchial asthma during ascent

Tapash Ienka 

Dr Tapash Lenka is an India-based Emergency medicine physician who has been providing medical cover for a range of different expeditions and adventures with international clients.

In this session he reflects on two separate case studies of patients he’s treated in the field with acute presentations: a case of acute asthma in the mountains at 4,500 metres and full blown, bee-sting induced anaphylaxis on a river rafting expedition. He reflects on the unique challenge of working with limited equipment, in isolation and under pressure, when the rest of the team turn to you in a medical crisis and say, ‘’do something!!?’’

He talks about what these experiences have taught him and how he’s adapted his emergency medicine skills to work in any environment.

Holyrood Road, Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city is uniquely inspirational, not only for its fabled loveliness, but also for its associations – past and present – with innovation, creativity, discovery and progress.

It was here chloroform was first used as an anaesthetic and the founder of penicillin was born. Dolly the sheep was cloned at the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute. The first ‘bionic’ hand – a powered prosthetic with articulating fingers – was developed by a spin-out company from the city’s Princess Margaret Rose Hospital, and the fastest-selling video game of all time – Grand Theft Auto V, by Rockstar North was developed!

Edinburgh has great transport connections too; home to Scotland’s busiest airport which serves 188 destinations worldwide, rail links which run all over the UK, easy access from Scotland’s motorway network and public transport in the city itself is simple with a plentiful supply of buses, trams and taxis.

There’s plenty to do after dark with lots of unique venues to experience a full flavour of Scotland’s culture. We have partnered with Convention Edinburgh and all of our Extreme Medicine delegates will receive the Edinburgh Rewards Card with their conference badge, opening a door to special offers from a selection of bars, restaurants, shops and tour operators.

Our conference venue, Dynamic Earth is a 5 star visitor experience, inviting guests to take a journey through time to witness the story of planet Earth. Dynamic Earth offers synergy within a global health context which match our own sustainable, community minded focus.
