Conference Brochure

Critical Procedures Course is organized by University of Maryland School of Medicine and will be held on Jun 10, 2019 at VISTA Lab, Baltimore, Maryland, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 4 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.

Target Audience
Critical Care Medicine, Emergency Medicine.

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to list for each procedure the indications, contraindictions and equipment needed.  Futhermore participants will be able to describe the technique and anticipate complications and provide the follow up needed for all of the listed procedures. The participants will have practiced each procedure in a controlled setting on human cadavers. Ultimately, the participants will be more prepared to perform the following invasive procedures on patients.  The list of procedures covered in the curriculum is as follows:
• Lateral canthotomy
• Facial nerve blocks
• Endotracheal intubation
• Retrograde intubation
• Cricothyrotomy
• Central Venous access
• Tube thoracostomy
• Emergency thoracotomy
• Pericardiocetesis
• Arthrocentesis of wrist
• Arthrocentesis of knee

How often do you save a life?
Imagine this scenario: It’s 3a.m. and you get word that an unstable patient with a stab wound to the chest is on the way to your ED.  Its been YEARS since your last thoracotomy and that was in residency. The trauma surgeon is 45 minutes away and not answering your page.  What do you do?  Run to Roberts and Hedges and re-familiarize yourself with the procedure?  Do you feel comfortable treating such a critically ill patient? 

What if there was a way to practice life-saving, invasive procedures in an educational and controlled environment?  

This course is intended to educate and train emergency medicine professionals in critical invasive procedures.  Although these procedures are life-saving, many physicians perform them infrequently due to their rare and invasive nature. This course will focus on retraining or introducing physicians to a number of critical and invasive procedures.  By using a 2:1 participant to human cadaver ratio, emergency providers will have the opportunity to practice difficult procedures in a controlled but realistic setting. Participants in this course will have a forum to build on and maintain their clinical skills.

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
