The ED is home to the experts for resuscitation of the undifferentiated critically ill patient. So many decisions in the first hours of resuscitation will impact the patients course in the ICU but have to be made with little information. However, with advances in technology there are opportunities to better target therapies to care for patients in shock. This workshop will provide hands-on opportunities to practice using noninvasive monitoring in simulated patients to drive their initial resuscitation.

No matter how naturally a pregnant woman delivers her child, if it's in your ED, it becomes an emergency delivery. Although ED deliveries are not common, and complications are rare, emergency providers should be able to deliver timely, competent resuscitation for both mother and baby if needed. This workshop will cover the necessary equipment for an emergency delivery and neonatal resuscitation, the management of the complications associated with an emergency delivery both in the mother and the infant, and identifying patients who cannot be transferred to Labor & Delivery. Are you and your facility prepared for this event?

Patients with unstable bradycardias frequently require insertion of a transvenous pacemaker as part of their initial ED resuscitation. Although this is a relatively common procedure in the hospital setting, it isn’t done all that often in the emergency department. The procedure for insertion of a transvenous pacemaker is straightforward, but creates quite a bit of anxiety for providers who haven’t inserted one in a while. This lab will teach you the steps of pacemaker insertion & what to do once it has been placed. Participants completing this workshop will gain confidence in taking care of this group of critically ill patients.
