The Trauma and Critical Care Symposium

 

The Trauma and Critical Care Symposium is designed to review state-of-the-art information about the diagnosis and management of severely ill patients. The Symposium provides an ideal mix of the traditional standard-of-care principles with cutting-edge, forward-moving practices. It explores issues related to surgical technique, resuscitation, inflammation and infection, respiratory care, nutrition, prehospital care, and ethics. Surgeons, anesthesiologists, and other health care providers with an interest to trauma and critical illness is the target audience.

To provide a fine balance between the multiple facets of care encountered, the Symposium runs “joint” sessions in the morning and “specialty” sessions in the afternoon. In joint sessions, problems common to all specialties caring for trauma and critically ill surgical patients are explored. In the specialty sessions, the topics presented are related more specifically to anesthesiologists or surgeons. Among the highlights of the Symposium are debate sessions and expert panels that discuss real-life cases and seek audience participation. The education delivered is exciting, readily applicable, and memorable.

This Symposium provides in-depth and cutting-edge information in the field of critical care and trauma.

Participants will:

 -Improve clinical skills in managing critically ill surgical patients

-Establish priorities in resuscitation of trauma patients
-Learn the evidence that supports decisions and interventions
-Receive examples based on real-life cases through expert panel and debate sessions
-List important diagnostic test and therapeutic maneuvers that are considered standard of care
-Consider new interventions and against-the-dogma techniques that may improve outcome
-Understand relevant areas of basic science that provide the foundation for clinical decision-making
-Interact directly with local and national leaders in the field of trauma and critical care
