Simulation and Procedure Workshops (Sun 2/24)
Burgess Creek I
Pediatrics cases- Pediatric nightmares - prepare with practice! After residency training, Emergency clinicians seldom have any opportunity to practice high risk and often times lifesaving teamwork, communication, and procedural skills. Through participating in a variety of high fidelity, adult and pediatric medical and trauma scenarios, participants will lead resuscitations and safely learn and perform lifesaving procedural skills with the direct coaching of national expert faculty.
Workshop Director:
Michelle Sergel, MD Optional
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Airway Workshop (Sun 2/24)
Burgess Creek II
No skill better defines Emergency Medicine than Airway Management of the critically ill patient. Recognizing the need for intubation, preparing properly, placing and securing the airway, then managing the post intubation patient are absolutely fundamental skills for every Emergency Medicine clinician everywhere. Although many patients are straightforward, the unanticipated difficult airway demands procedural competency with multiple different airway techniques and devices. During this case-based procedural session, participants will learn under the coaching of national expert faculty the prerequisite knowledge and skills needed to prevent and even rescue the fatal failed airway
Workshop Director:
Michael Overbeck, MD Optional
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Ultrasound Workshop (Sun 2/24)
