2019 Essential Procedures in Emergency Medicine Course is organized by University of Maryland School of Medicine and will be held on Jun 11, 2019 at VISTA Lab, Baltimore, Maryland, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
Essential Procedures in Emergency Medicine is a procedure-based course specially designed to focus on wound care management, non-invasive orthopedic procedures and lumbar puncture skills. The objectives for each procedure include learning the indications, contraindications, equipment, technique, complications, sites, post procedure follow up and pearls needed to perform the procedures competently. Procedures will be practiced in a controlled setting on human cadavers and high fidelity task trainers. The participants will be divided into small groups of 4-5 students with direct supervision of highly skilled instructors. Participants will have ample opportunity for guided practice of all procedures reviewed.
• Low instructor to student ratio
• Up to 5 CME credits
• Human cadaver lab
○ Provides accurate human anatomy and tissue with all the natural variations.
○ Palpation of landmarks and subtle anatomic differences provides a more realistic experience for the learner.
○ All cadavers have been screened for communicable diseases and pose no threat to the learner.
• High fidelity task trainer
○ For procedures not possible on human cadavers (lumbar puncture)
○ As the learner becomes more proficient the simulator may be manipulated to increase the difficulty of the procedure, for example simulating obesity.
○ Use a high frequency ultrasound probes to assist with identification of soft tissue infections and foreign bodies.
• Pathology simulation
○ Cadavers will be prepared in advance to simulate important pathology such as tendon injuries, abscesses, lacerations, joint effusions, and soft tissue foreign bodies.
○ Students will be able to appreciate the subtle presentation of flexor tendon injuries and learn the importance of hemostasis in wound exploration.
○ Abscess incision and drainage will yield simulated purulent discharge.
○ Arthrocentesis proficiency will be assessed with successful removal of colored fluid from commonly affected joints.
• Facial nerve blocks (supraorbital, infraorbital and auricular)
• I&D abscess (including loop drainage)
• Arthrocentesis (wrist, ankle and knee)
• Digital nerve block
• Laceration repair
• Wrist tendon injury identification
• FB identification with U/S
• Differentiating between abscess and cellulitis with U/S
• Task trainer
• Joint reduction techniques without use of sedation
At the conclusion of this activity, after performing procedures on human cadavers, high fidelity task trainers, or models for each of the 11 procedures listed, participants will be able to:
• Define indications and contraindictions, landmarks, complications, and techniques for the procedures.
• Perform the procedures with competence.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
