In recent years, the annual hours of critical care delivered by emergency physicians has grown over 200%! It is during these early hours of illness, when the patient is in the emergency department, that many pathologic processes begin to take hold. It is during these early hours of illness when lives can be saved … or lost! It is crucial that emergency physicians be expert at resuscitating the crashing patient.
The Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiology pre-conference course is an outstanding resuscitation course for the emergency physician that encompasses a broad spectrum of topics including the critical airway, mechanical ventilation, fluid resuscitation, cardiac arrest, post-cardiac arrest management, sepsis, ultrasound, and recent updates from the critical care and cardiology literature. In addition, the course features two ECG workshops where critical findings in select patients will be reviewed. Emergency physicians who want to take a resuscitation course taught at an advanced level will find this to be an outstanding experience. Quite simply, this course will help you save lives!
