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.

Dry Eye: Effective Solutions for Challenging Cases is organized by Johns Hopkins Medicine (JHM) and will be held on Sep 07, 2019 at Johns Hopkins University School Of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland, United States of America. Who Should Attend This activity is intended for ophthalmic technicians, residents, fellows, and physicians in ophthalmology and optometry. Accreditation: The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 7.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Overview: Dry eye drastically affects patient quality of life, with negative effects in patient's productivity at work, leisure activities, social life, ability to read and safely drive, and overall visual function, yet it remains vastly under-recognized, misdiagnosed and undertreated. Dry Eye is now proposed as a common pathway to many ocular surface disorders, yet the variability of presenting symptoms, along with confusion in management strategies, poses a significant challenge to eye care professionals who encounter these patients on a regular basis. Additionally, as new diagnostic and treatment options become available, ECP's need to understand the indications for those newer treatments, differential mechanisms of action, and ultimately efficacy of each treatment modality. This activity is a comprehensive educational initiative for ECPs whom manage and diagnose patients with dry eye. This dynamic learning experience will merge patient scenerios with evidence-based clinical concepts and audience interaction to provide memorable, relevant, and retainable educational ecounters. Objectives: • Screen for presence of dry eye including in asymptomatic patients. • Identify the two main types of dry eye disease. • Recognize other ocular surface diseases that could co-manifest with dry eye. • Assess available medical dry eye treatment options according to their differential mechanisms of action and efficacy. • Apply evidence based diagnostic and treatment plans to specific patient case scenarios. • Recognize various procedural treatment modalities. The registration fee includes instructional materials, continental breakfast, refreshment breaks and lunch. For registrations received after 5:00 p.m. ET on September 1, 2019 include a $50 late fee. On-site registrations are payable only by credit card.

Critical Procedures Course is organized by University of Maryland School of Medicine and will be held on Sep 09, 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.
