Program Purpose / Objectives
This seminar should be of interest to a wide variety of practitioners, including emergency physicians, family practitioners, internists and those who manage patients in emergency situations.

The scientific program should also be of interest to Nurse Practioners, PAs, and Nurses.

Objectives: To provide an update and review of emergency medicine topics for physicians caring for patients with acute emergencies. Emphasis will be placed on clinical decision-making and the role of new, diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to emergency care, as well as, clinical diagnosis and management of the acutely ill patient. Upon completion of this seminar, participants should be able to: manage difficult airway problems; utilize various airway techniques for airway management; use the latest techniques for diagnosing myocardial ischemia and infarction; utilize the most current resuscitation modalities with cardiac arrest, perform appropriate workup and management for patients with shortness of breath related to pulmonary embolisms and pneumonias.

Participants will be able to use the pneumonia severity index as a tool to manage community acquired pneumonia and identify those patients most at risk vs. those that can be discharged.

Also, participants should be able to describe toxidromes by identifying clinical signs and symptoms that help diagnose toxicological emergencies and review what is new in toxicology management; manage and recognize emerging severe skin infections and toxic shock syndromes.

Participants will also be informed and prepared to deal with new emerging infectious diseases and environmental injuries. Also, participants will be able to apply the latest recommendations of the American Heart Association regarding Advanced Cardiac Life Support in any practice setting. For those who teach medicine, you will be able to employ the teaching techniques that are associated with measurable outcomes.
