  • 9. 8 ABOUT THE COURSE TRAUMA CRITICAL CARE & ACUTE CARE SURGERY 2010 MARCH 22-24 CAESARS PALACE • LAS VEGAS, NV This annual Las Vegas Trauma, Critical Care & Acute Care Surgery Conference has become the best attended such course in the world. Word of mouth endorsements have led to this course being oversubscribed the last 10 years, and of the more than 1300 attendees, over 80% are physicians. Our faculty are physicians in active practice who continue “in the trenches” day after day, night after night, dealing with the most complex surgical challenges. Each year, new “rising stars” join a seasoned, expert faculty. As you read the scientific program, you will be impressed such a stellar faculty has been assembled and how so much practical surgical information has been incorporated into two and one-half days. Past attendees have aptly described the conference content as an, “Incredible journey in surgical knowledge, with ‘tour guides’ whose expertise and personalities make every excursion a uniquely exceptional experience,” “Amazingly wonderful, fast paced experience – like drinking water from a fire hose – blew me away!” “No other course like this in the world; can’t wait to return next year.” As we enter our 43rd record-breaking year, it is appropriate that the continued focus be TRAUMA, CRITICAL CARE, & ACUTE CARE SURGERY. For every community, there continues to be a need for surgical and medical teams to evaluate and treat the sickest of the sick and the severely injured. With many recent surgical graduates going into practices based primarily in minimally invasive surgical subspecialties, it is appropriate that this course take a leadership role in providing a continuing education venue for the complex operative and critical care surgical challenges, with major trauma continuing to be the epitome of such challenges. Objectives 1) Describe innovative, appropriate techniques and technology for optimal care of the injured or seriously ill patient in urban and rural settings, 2) Discuss treatments, techniques and technology for optimal care in the critical care setting, including sepsis, difficult extubations, metabolic and serotonin syndromes, vasopressor administration, pulmonary hypertension, and advanced ventilator management, 3) Apply concepts from urban and rural trauma and acute care surgery case studies to the practice settings, 4) Discuss practical exposure techniques and guidelines for management of traumatic brain injuries, fistula in the open abdomen, spinal cord injuries, acute limb ischemia, upper and lower GI bleeding, abdominal wall reconstruction, acute limb ischemia, appendectomy, strangulated inguinal hernia, and impacted foreign body, 5) Recognize appropriate application of military advances to civilian trauma and acute care surgery, 6) Understand the general surgeon’s role in managing generally accepted specialty areas, including male genitalia emergencies, hemorrhagic cystitis and multiple fractures, 7) Discuss appropriate surgical response to injuries and illness with added complicating circumstances, including obesity, pregnancy, cirrhosis, and coagulopathy, 8) Recognize the advantages and shortcomings of the EMR, 9) Present the changing principles and concepts relating to splenic injuries, administering blood in the ICU, timing of DVT prophylaxis, and timing and techniques for tracheostomy, 10) Discuss the ethical dilemmas of trauma and critical care, including the disruptive medical professional, use of TQIP for trauma centers, and the potentially life altering
  • 10. 9 ramifications of a malpractice law suit, 11) Discuss management, technology and techniques for optimal care of diverse trauma and critical care related issues, including managing large impacted common duct stone and pelvic sepsis, 12) Present and discuss the positive and negative aspects of contemporary issues in trauma and critical care, including helicopter transport, teleconsultations, and open vs closed ICUs, 13) Present the challenges surgeons are facing in an ever changing healthcare environment, as well as the external forces that affect many of these changes, 14) Evaluate lessons learned in providing quality trauma care in the practice setting, 15) Understand the effects of hospital diversions Educational Methods - Didactic lectures, panel discussions, audiovisual aids, course syllabus, questions and answers and self-test. Target Audience - The course is primarily designed for trauma surgeons working in Level I-IV trauma centers. In addition, general surgeons, emergency physicians, anesthesiologists, trauma coordinators, surgical residents, thoracic surgeons, trauma nurses, physician assistants, administrators and EMS coordinators will benefit from this course. The American College of Surgeons is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The American College of Surgeons desig- nates this educational activity for a maximum of 23 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Accreditation will also be applied for from other appropri- ate medical specialty organizations.

Vail, MD, FACS Director of Trauma Surgery Medical Director Tactical Medicine Program The Trauma Center at Maricopa Medical Center Phoenix, AZ FACULTY MEDICAL DISASTER RESPONSE 2010 SUNDAY, MARCH 21 Medical Disaster Response 2010, has been developed by the group that brings you Trauma, Critical Care & Acute Care Surgery. This course made its debut in 2008 and was an immediate sell-out. It is specifically for clinical personnel who, in the “heat of battle,” are trying to save patients’ lives and limbs, often with limited space and workers, while trying to quickly determine how to manage more patients than the facility can process. Whether it is an overwhelmingly busy Friday night or a full-scale mass casualty, the clinical personnel are on the front line. Course faculty were selected for their first-hand experience in medical disaster response, and the program was designed to present maximum content in formats most conducive to learning and audience involvement. Physicians, nurses, administrators and others in the hospital and clinical arenas will, sooner or later, be faced with the care of multiple patients following a natural, terrorism, industrial, or other catastrophic event that might be considered an overwhelming mass casualty or “disaster.” Many journals, courses, and even “model” disaster plans address infrastructure, supplies, causes, public health, and logistics. However, the medical/clinical aspects, the most important determinant of survival, are often overlooked. This course focuses on these aspects and targets the clinical personnel who are the first to receive the victims of a catastrophic event. Whether it is H1N1 or a devastating earthquake, the role of individuals responsible for immediate medical response will be the focus. Every physician, nurse and administrator working in a hospital clinical setting has the potential to be called upon, without notice, to fulfill these responsibilities. ABOUT THE COURSE
