Workshop Description: This course is intended to educate and train emergency medicine professionals in critical care invasive procedures. Although these procedures are life-saving, many physicians will perform them infrequently in clinical practice due to their invasive nature. This course will focus on retraining or introducing physicians to a number of critical and invasive procedures. By using a 2:1 physician to cadaver ratio, emergency physicians will have the opportunity to practice difficult procedures in a controlled but real life simulation. Participants in this course will have a forum to build on and maintain their clinical skills.
100% of the time in this course will be devoted to in-lab instruction and practice. Lecture videos will be made available to participants prior to the course in order to maximize the time in the lab. Procedures covered include lateral canthotomy, facial nerve blocks, subclavian and internal jugular central venous access, pericardiocentesis, knee and wrist arthrocentesis, tube thoracostomy, emergency thoracotomy and pericardiotomy.
