Intro to Critical Care and Anesthesia

Sponsored by AAEM/RSA

Sundays, February 13 - April 10, 2022 | 5:00pm PT / 6:00pm MT / 7:00pm CT / 8:00pm ET:
Online Course Prep
Saturday, April 23, 2022 | 1:00 - 5:00pm ET: In-Person Training

Due to the consistent need for early critical interventions in the Emergency Department, the relevance of critical care and anesthesia topics for third and fourth-year medical students and EM interns arises as a necessity for primary treatment centers and rural Emergency Departments who transport ICU-bound patients to a higher-level of care. Practical hands-on learning coupled with a flipped theoretical classroom drives this course. The learning strategy will ensure consistent, evidence-based care with the most up-to-date and relevant knowledge applicable to these fields.

Critical Care & Anesthesia – Online Prep

Sundays, February 13 - April 10
5:00pm PT / 6:00pm MT / 7:00pm CT / 8:00pm ET

Zoom Meeting

The theoretical/didactic portion of this course will be completed in advance of attending Scientific Assembly as participants will attend a one-hour zoom session once a week, for a total of eight sessions, with an optional ninth session covering POCUS in EM. Participants will be required to complete quizzes for each module of 5-10 multiple-choice questions (except for the optional POCUS component) with a minimum pass rate of 80%. Participants are allotted a maximum of two attempts at each quiz to achieve the minimal passing grade. Only after understanding of the incorrect questions is accomplished may you attempt the quiz a second time. Quizzes will be graded by course co-directors and faculty.

Participants will be provided with links to course content on Mondays and are required to have viewed the content prior to attending the weekly Zoom meeting the following Sunday evening. Participants are required to attend the Sunday Zoom sessions.

Registration is now open for the virtual portion of this course. 

 
Critical Care & Anesthesia – Hands-On Course

Saturday, April 23, 2022 | 1:00pm - 5:00pm ET

At the end of the course, students will receive a Certificate of Completion titled “Introduction to Critical Care and Anesthesia Course Completion” (with or without the “POCUS in EM” component) from the AAEM/RSA.

Resuscitation for Emergency Physicians (REP)

Saturday, April 23, 2022 | 7:30am - 5:00pm ET: Day 1
​Sunday, April 24, 2022 | 7:30am - 12:00pm ET: Day 2

Resuscitation for Emergency Physicians (REP) is the first integrated resuscitation course developed by an emergency medicine professional society that is tailored to the needs of emergency physicians (EPs). 

REP will encompass a broad spectrum of topics, including: neurocritical care disorders, cardiogenic shock, aortic catastrophes, mechanical ventilation, vasopressor use, sepsis, trauma, pediatric resuscitation, crashing pregnant patients, and reversing life-threatening hemorrhage secondary to new anticoagulant medications. In addition, the course will share the latest research and best practices on the management of critically ill patients with COVID-19.

EPs who want to take a single resuscitation course taught at an advanced level (rather than taking ACLS, PALS and ATLS) will find REP to be an outstanding experience. Quite simply, this course will help you save lives!

Learning Objectives
  • Discuss advanced resuscitation concepts that can be applied to medical, trauma and undifferentiated patients of all age groups
  • Identify and discuss current medical literature pertaining to the resuscitation of select critically ill emergency department patients
  • Discuss an integrated and standardized approach to caring for the critically ill emergency department patient awaiting admission to the intensive care unit

Ultrasound — Beginner

Saturday, April 23, 2022
10:00am - 3:45pm ET: Beginner Ultrasound Course
3:45pm - 5:15pm ET: Optional Skills Verification Program

This year’s Beginner Ultrasound course has been fully redesigned to be the ultimate hands-on course based on feedback from past participants. We’ll be highlighting the critical aspects of emergency ultrasound, including echocardiography and vascular access. 

After didactic lectures with state of the art audiovisual presentations led by veteran faculty, participants with have ample time for hands-on scanning in small groups of a maximum four participants to one instructor ratio. 

*New this year: Participants are invited to a lunchtime Q&A session with faculty so you can ask any questions you have about credentialing processes, ultrasound machine maintenance, and how to improve scanning skills.

2022 Medical Student Track 

Sunday, April 24, 2022 | 7:30am - 12:05pm ET

The Medical Student Track is an invaluable opportunity for you to learn more about a future career in emergency medicine while networking with other students, residents, and attending physicians in the field. 

This year, our course will focus on research opportunities for medical students by showcasing current student research and offering opportunities for students to be involved in ongoing research projects. We will also uncover the complexities of the current workforce of EM and how this affects #EMBound medical students. After break, we will return for subspecialty speed dating which will provide medical students with small group networking in subspecialty fields like critical care, ultrasound, EMS, and more.

*NEW* Stop the Bleed: New this year, we are incorporating a hands-on Stop the Bleed training session into our track! The 1-hour course is designed for individuals who may be called upon as immediate responders to provide initial trauma care and bleeding control to a victim of traumatic injury prior to the arrival of emergency medical services. All students who participate will receive a certificate of completion from the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma.

We hope to see you there!
