EMS2017 Procedural Cadaver Lab

Resuscitation of the critically ill is paramount for optimal patient care and outcome, yet it can be the most stressful and frustrating component of our clinical practice. Our patients deserve excellence in our ability to provide quality invasive procedures. Yet, these skills that are often required to save a life are often not utilized in a timely, optimal fashion if at all, due to lack of practice, unfamiliarity with the procedure itself or advances in equipment or technique.
This lab utilizes cadaveric teaching based upon educational theory to impart knowledge in a low stress environment, with internationally renowned quality instructors, utilizing actual tissue, making this the optimal learning environment. This lab utilizes fresh, unembalmed cadavers, to replicate a true and accurate clinical experience.
Under expert instruction, participants will have the opportunity to practice several procedural skills including direct and video laryngoscope intubation, surgical cricothyroidotomy, intraosseous access and needle thoracostomy.

Research in the prehospital domain of emergency medicine in scarce. It is well-known that such research is difficult to prepare, execute and publish in high impact journals. It is not uncommon that a young and dedicated researcher has the intention to start an interesting study and discover the hard way that the study cannot be completed successfully. At the same time, such prehospital research is needed to further improve the quality and effectively of current pre-hospital treatments.
The pre-conference workshop on prehospital research aims at gathering around the table practitioners seeking to improve their scientific research skills and in this way are able to contribute to improved pre-hospital emergency health care. The learning outcomes when participating in this workshop is: to create a sound prehospital research proposal.
