How often do you save a life?

 Imagine this scenario: It’s 3a.m. and you get word that an unstable patient with a stab wound to the chest is on the way to your ED.  Its been YEARS since your last thoracotomy and that was in residency.  You are single coverage and the trauma surgeon is about 45 minutes away and not answering your page.  What do you do?  Run to Roberts and Hedges and re-familiarize yourself with the procedure?  Do you feel comfortable treating such a critically ill patient? 

What if there was a way to practice life-saving, invasive procedures in an educational and controlled environment?  

This course is intended to educate and train emergency medicine professionals in critical care invasive procedures.  Although these procedures are life-saving, many physicians will perform them infrequently in clinical practice due to their invasive nature. This course will focus on retraining or introducing physicians to a number of critical and invasive procedures.  By using a 2:1 participant to cadaver ratio, emergency   physicians will have the opportunity to practice difficult procedures in a controlled but real life simulation. Participants in this course will have a forum to build on and maintain their clinical skills.

Participants will receive a 4:1 participant to instructor teaching

environment and a 2:1 participant to cadaver experience.
