Day 2

Tuesday, June 11, 2024

Event: Registration

7:00 am - 4:00 pm

Description:

8:00 am - 9:30 am

Description:

This 1.5 -hour airway course uses interactive discussion and didactics, case scenarios and hands-on skills training to teach providers to effectively recognize, evaluate, and manage patients with airway emergencies and respiratory distress. With a focus on the goal of adequate oxygenation and ventilation for airway patients, there are skills stations for good bag-mask ventilation, capnography interpretation, supraglottic devices, endotracheal intubation, surgical airways, as well as non-invasive ventilation and special situations. It is appropriate for new and experienced providers.

This course will be a critical review of airway management, pitfalls, and proper technique to build confidence and enhance decision-making skills. It is appropriate for new and experienced providers.

 

8:00 am - 9:30 am

Description:

Advanced Trauma Workshop is a dynamic course designed to enhance the quality of trauma care in the field and decrease mortality. The curriculum is based on prehospital trauma life support (PHTLS) and advanced trauma life support (ATLS) programs, stressing the treatment and transport of multi-system trauma patients.

Each session will have rotating hands-on skills stations for trauma assessment, patient management, and scenarios with high-fidelity manikins. This is designed for paramedics, EMTs, physicians, and nurses involved in the initial management of injured patients

Workshop sessions may include:

Airway challenges and emergent surgical airway management
Ballistic wound packing lab and bleeding control techniques.
Chest decompression and lung lab.
Interventions for vascular access, fluid management, and permissive hypotension.

8:00 am - 9:30 am

Capnography Capstone – More Than Just Numbers

This lecture will provide in-depth information, explained in basic and simple language so even a novice can learn the power of this important assessment tool by applying the information it provides to determine if the patient is sick or not sick. To understand the entire process of capnography one must also understand how and why carbon dioxide is produced by the body. Without this basic understanding it would be difficult to comprehend why the presentation of higher concentrations or lower concentration of CO2 can help in determining if a patient is sick or not sick and ultimately lead to efficient and rapid treatment of a sick patient.

8:00 am - 9:30 am

Mastering the ECG – This interactive course is intended for physicians, nurses, and paramedics interested in sharpening their ECG interpretation skills. At times, over-reliance on computer interpretations, online experts, and today’s advanced technology could lead to complacency in reading ECGs. This class will simplify ECG interpretation, and the participants will be taught rapid interpretation techniques through a simple step-based method for both ECGs and 12-Lead ECGs.

8:00 am - 9:30 am

Trauma is the leading cause of death in children, and EMS professionals usually the first health care providers to encounter severely injured patients. This lecture will use a case-based approach to help participants understand the management priorities in the early minutes of care. Topics will include airway management, vascular access, and resuscitation with an emphasis on whole blood.

8:00 am - 9:30 am

Session 1: 8 AM to 12 PM

Session 2: 1PM to 5 PM

Lead Faculty: University of Miami Gordon Center Simulation and Innovation in Medical Education

  • Ivette Motola, MD, MPH
  • Marco Gonzalez, EMT-P
  • Samia Barbar, MD
  • Asit Misra, MD, MSMEd

Course Description:

This 4-hour workshop addresses the initial detection and management of the patients with acute stoke. Using interactive discussions, hands-on practice, video case scenarios and simulated patients, the workshop includes a discussion of the differential diagnosis of the stroke, rapid recognition of five major stroke syndromes, training and the use of a common stroke screening exam and initial management.

The course emphasizes stroke recognition and the time-sensitive nature of treatments, that Time is Brain. It is targeted for first responders and health professionals whose responsibilities include the care of patients at risk of a stroke.

At the completion of this workshop, participants will be able to perform a focused evaluation to identify stroke and its location; determine when to call a stroke alert and quickly transport the patient to the nearest appropriate facility; and provide initial management of stroke and its complications.

Objectives:

  • Identify the single dose killers in pediatric toxicology.
  • Recall common clinical manifestations associated with pediatric toxic emergencies.
  • Modify management plans to correct acidosis encountered in pediatric toxicology.
  • Recall indications for high dose insulin and intralipid therapy in select cardiotoxic emergencies.

See lighting-round presentations by emerging EMS leaders!

3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

A practice-based discussion (NOT a journal club, don’t worry!) of 10 papers that changed my EMS practice in 2023. These are papers, for good or bad, that all paramedics, system directors, and medical directors should know about. Topics are hot off the press, but past ones have included the use of TXA for trauma and nose bleeds, HeadUp CPR, risk factors for peri-intubation cardiac arrest, the use of video laryngoscopy in cardiac arrest, and more.

3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Description:

Despite the U.S. declaring measles eradicated in 2000, we continue to see sporadic cases yearly. However, in the first quarter of 2024, we have already seen more cases than we saw in all of 2023. Given the low frequency of cases in the past, many emergency nurses have likely not previously encountered measles, making identification more challenging. Early recognition and isolation are crucial to controlling the spread of this very contagious virus and mitigating potential complications. This presentation provides a review of the pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, and recommended management strategies for suspected and confirmed cases of measles.

Objectives:

  • Describe the clinical manifestations of measles.
  • Recall the management priorities for the patient with confirmed or suspected measles.
  • Modify plans of care to include isolation techniques when infectious diseases are a differential or diagnosis.
