Resuscitation for Emergency Physicians (REP)

Tuesday, April 25, 2023 | 1:00pm - 5:00pm (Day 1)
Wednesday, April 26, 2023 | 7:30am - 5:00pm (Day 2)

Resuscitation for Emergency Physicians (REP) is the first integrated resuscitation course developed by an emergency medicine professional society for emergency physicians like you.

REP encompasses 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.

If you want to take a single resuscitation course taught at an advanced level (rather than taking ACLS, PALS and ATLS), you will find REP to be an outstanding experience that 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
Accreditation Statement 

The American Academy of Emergency Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Course Credit Designation Statement

The American Academy of Emergency Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 9.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
