ABSTRACT The abstract clearly defines what your topic will be about. Clear, thoughtful and concise
The Triangle of Death: Hypothermia, Acidosis and Coagulopathy The lethal combination of hypothermia, acidosis and coagulopathy, known as the triangle of death, poses a potential threat to every trauma patient. Hypothermia, which is more prevalent in the severely injured patient, is associated with increased mortality. With the increase in oxygen consumption associated with hypoperfusion related to shock, acidosis develops, as the oxygen supply becomes inadequate to meet the tissue oxygen demand. Treatment for acidosis should focus on the correction of hypoperfusion and hypothermia. The relationship between hypothermia, the degree of shock (acidosis) and to the development of coagulopathy produces increases the mortality by 90%. This lecture will explain the interesting interrelationship between these conditions and the treatment options.
Making Advanced Hemodynamics Simple With the advent of advanced hemodynamic monitoring systems, the dependency on medical personnel to perform waveform analysis and hemodynamic calculations is slowly dwindling. The current hemodynamic systems are very good at measuring waveforms and calculating the various formulas used in the critical care areas. However, whether perceived or not, there is a genuine need for staff to continue, in this day and age, to understand, identify and assist in diagnosing various disease processes. While computers are good, they will only do what they are commanded and do not look at the “whole” picture. This lecture will start with the basics and end with advanced hemodynamics for complex medical conditions as well as IABP and cardiac assist devices commonly seen by prehospital personnel.
VADS here, VADS there: Ambulatory Ventricular Assist Devices Everywhere Evolving cardiac technology and severe shortages of donor hearts for increasing numbers of transplant candidates have produced a once never thought of reality: the patient on a portable Ventricular Assist Device (VAD) which allows the patient to be ambulatory and discharged home. As Emergency Management Service Communities around the country become inundated with these patients, they are often unaware that the VAD-supported patients even exist in their area until a tragic accident or mechanical failure brings them face to face with one. This lecture examines the details necessary for care and transport for pre- hospital and emergency room personnel, development of a successful training program and Ten Questions you should ask before transporting or caring for the most common types of ambulatory VADs.
The Most Bizarre and Unusual Trauma Case Studies in Emergency Medicine 2012 Trauma continues to occur in epidemic proportions in our society today; however, this is not a new phenomenon. Trauma injury has been recognized as a part of human experience since early civilization. As the world’s population increases so does the incidence of those rare and bizarre cases which present a unique challenge to the healthcare team as life-threatening injuries must be rapidly identified and treated. When seconds count mental preparation and rehearsal can make the difference but if they are rare in occurrence how can we prepare? A review and analysis of a variety of situations with the use of a case study approach will provide insight and learning points to the critical care, emergency and transport nurse of patient management of unusual trauma cases.
Outline The outline should clearly show how your presentation will flow. It will give the reader an indicator of the content and timeframe of your lecture. It should start with Roman Number I, II, III etc.
