Body Composition Measurements from Birth through 5 Years: Challenges, Gaps, and Existing & Emerging Technologies
May 30 - 31, 2019 | Bethesda, Maryland
Body Composition Measurements from Birth through 5 Years: Challenges, Gaps, and Existing & Emerging Technologies is organized by National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) and will be held from May 30 - 31, 2019 at NIH Campus Building 35A, Bethesda, Maryland, United States of America. Description: Measurement of body composition during infancy and childhood has important uses in primary and specialty health care settings, clinical research, and national surveys and surveillance. Health care providers can use body composition information to screen for current and future health risks, provide anticipatory guidance, monitor therapeutic progress, and tailor treatment for precision medicine. Researchers can better understand the longitudinal associations between body composition and various health/disease outcomes throughout the lifespan, beginning at birth, and the impact of various obesity prevention and weight management interventions. National reference data for body composition distributions by age, sex, race/ethnicity from survey measurements (e.g., NHANES) can be used for population monitoring and evaluation activities for young children (e.g., WIC clinics, Early Head Start). A number of approaches have been used to estimate or directly measure various aspects of body composition: fat free mass (FFM), fat mass (FM), percent body fat (% BF), total body water (TB H2O), etc. at various ages and include anthropometry (recumbent length, stature, weight, circumferences, skinfold thickness), bioelectrical impedance analysis, air displacement plethysmography; magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), multicompartment models including TBW by deuterium dilution, total body potassium counting, and bone mineral content by dual x-ray absorptiometry (DXA). However, several limitations have been identified across the various measurement procedures that can lead to inaccurate estimates of fat mass or percent BF or prohibit its use in younger children, including prediction equations that tend to be specific to the population from which they were derived (anthropometric measures), inaccuracies due to crying/movement during testing (BOD POD or MRI), exposure to radiation (DXA), and high cost or significant technical examiner expertise (MRI). These limitations and challenges can be considerable for body composition measurement in children from birth to 5 years. There are also presently no approaches that can be used across all ages from birth to adolescence or adulthood for tracking the natural history of obesity or the longitudinal outcomes of intervention research on body composition. Meeting Objectives: To identify specific needs for research that will help fill existing knowledge gaps and to identify opportunities to improve measurement of body composition components in infants from birth through age 5 years, with a special focus on measures that can be used longitudinally and for evaluation of intervention studies.

This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 15.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Overview : The Practical Emergency Airway Management 2 day course provides an in-depth look at effective airway management techniques that you will actually use in your next emergency airway This course provides an in-depth look at effective surgical airway management techniques that you will actually use in your next emergency airway. There is a unique focus on airway anatomy and imaging combined with one-of-a-kind opportunity to practice the techniques on a large variety of non-embalmed, specially prepared cadavers. This is the only cadaver airway course available. This course teaches practical, effective skills and strategies for adult and pediatric intubation that promote patient safety and increase provider confidence. Topics covered include orotracheal intubation, laryngoscopy, surgical airways (cricothyrotomy, tracheotomy), video laryngoscopy, fiberoptic intubation, nasotracheal intubation, pediatric intubation, and rescue ventilation devices such as the laryngeal mask airway. The intubation and ventilation techniques and devices are presented within an overall practical algorithm for the difficult airway that is applicable for emergency settings. There is significant focus on patient safety and a best practice approach to rapid sequence intubation. Learning Objectives : • Formulate an overall strategy for different emergency airway situations emphasizing pre-procedural assessment of the "difficult" airway, indications for nasal and surgical airways, and the role of rapid sequence intubation. • Apply and understand techniques of laryngoscopy including external laryngeal manipulation, head elevated positioning, and paraglossal straight blade technique. • Effectively use laryngoscopy adjuncts including tube stylets and introducers, as well as understanding the fundamentals of laryngoscopy blade design and selection. • Explain the role for and the methods of insertion for rescue ventilation devices including the laryngeal mask airway and tracheal-esophageal Combitube, as well as means of transitioning. • from such devices to tracheal tube placement. • Describe laryngeal and upper airway anatomy including the structures about the laryngeal inlet, and the significance of these anatomic landmarks in terms of laryngoscopy, rescue ventilation, and surgical airway techniques. • Cite the indications and techniques of emergency surgical airways including retrograde intubation, cricothyrotomy, and tracheotomy.

Jun 10, 2019 | CME 4.00 | USD $745 | Baltimore, Maryland
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. Objectives 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 Highlights: 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.
