Overview

HOW OFTEN DO YOU SAVE A LIFE?

Imagine this scenario: It’s 3am and an unstable patient with severe trauma rolls into your ED. It’s been years since your last cricothyrotomy, and that was in residency! You are single coverage and the trauma surgeon is 45 minutes away. What do you do? Do you feel comfortable treating such a critically ill patient?

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

When was the last time you put in a chest tube or performed an emergency surgical airway? Would you like to learn to place central lines more safely using Ultrasound guidance? The Simulation-assisted Emergency Medicine Procedures course (SEMP) was designed to allow physicians to acquire, review, and practice their skills in essential life-saving emergency procedures.

PRE-COURSE WORK:

Before the course, the students will have access to web-based learning modules. These online modules will demonstrate the cognitive aspects of performing the procedure. Learners will complete this self-directed learning at their convenience, before arriving for the one-day hands-on procedure lab and human patient simulator sessions.

ONSITE @ CESEI:

The hands-on portion of the course consists of experienced instructors who will demonstrate the procedures and supervise the learners as they practice on animal and realistic plastic models. The learners will have the opportunity to integrate performance of these procedures into the real-time resuscitation of a critically ill patient using the latest Human Patient Simulator technology to create realistic scenarios.
