Primary care providers must be aware of recent advances in the field of Urologic oncology, particularly indications and adverse events associated with newer therapies as well as the role of biomarkers in the various urologic malignancies. Lastly, pediatric urologic conditions are commonly identified in the primary care office and thus an understanding of commonly encountered pediatric urologic conditions will help primary care providers to determine what children need urgent evaluation and which children may be further evaluated and managed by the primary care provider. The team approach to management of such conditions may optimize care, minimize morbidity and cost.
The pediatric critical care review is intended to discuss important topics and updates on the care of critically ill children. We will touch on the evolving pediatric shock and sepsis recommendations as well as sedative and analgesic practices. A review of pediatric respiratory failure will include discussions on etiologies, the pediatric airway, non-invasive and ventilator management. Additionally, we will discuss pediatric sedation including pharmacologic options and scoring. The desired outcomes are for the attendees to have a better understanding of the current treatment recommendations and increased comfort with the care for these patients in their own practice settings.
