Program Purpose

This seminar should be of interest to a wide variety of practitioners, including emergency physicians, family practitioners, internists and those who manage patients in emergency situations.

The scientific program should also be of interest to Nurse Practioners, PAs, and Nurses.

Objectives: To provide an update and review of emergency medicine topics for physicians caring for patients with acute emergencies. Emphasis will be placed on clinical decision-making and the role of new, diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to emergency care, as well as, clinical diagnosis and management of the acutely ill patient. Upon completion of this seminar, participants should be able to: manage difficult airway problems; utilize various airway techniques for airway management; use the latest techniques for diagnosing myocardial ischemia and infarction; utilize the most current resuscitation modalities with cardiac arrest, perform appropriate workup and management for patients with shortness of breath related to pulmonary embolisms and pneumonias.

Participants will be able to use the pneumonia severity index as a tool to manage community acquired pneumonia and identify those patients most at risk vs. those that can be discharged.

Also, participants should be able to describe toxidromes by identifying clinical signs and symptoms that help diagnose toxicological emergencies and review what is new in toxicology management; manage and recognize emerging severe skin infections and toxic shock syndromes.

Participants will also be informed and prepared to deal with new emerging infectious diseases and environmental injuries. Also, participants will be able to apply the latest recommendations of the American Heart Association regarding Advanced Cardiac Life Support in any practice setting. For those who teach medicine, you will be able to employ the teaching techniques that are associated with measurable outcomes.

Adventure

Ports of Call

Ft. Lauderdale, Florida - There is an abundance of things to see and do in the Ft. Lauderdale area: visit the newly redesigned Ft. Lauderdale Beach and cafes, stroll the historic Riverwalk, shop the luxurious stores on Las Olas Boulevard or adventure to the Everglades for an intriguing air boat excursion.

At Sea - Cruising - Cruising

Labadee, Haiti - This tropical paradise, reserved exclusively for Royal Caribbean guests, features pristine beaches, walking trails and breathtaking vistas. Labadee is the perfect setting for parasailing, wave runners and the kayak tour, all available on your own private island.

Falmouth, Jamaica - Step off the ship and step back in time. You might not think so at first glance but little Falmouth was an economic and shipping powerhouse and center for dramatic social change during the English Colonial Period. Founded and named Martha Brae Point in 1769 by local English planter, Thomas Reid, Falmouth became the transshipment hub for the sugar plantations covering the hills of the North Coast of Jamaica. Edward Barrett, a wealthy English planter, strongly influenced the early development of Falmouth. From the wharfs of Falmouth, sugar, molasses, rum and coffee were sent to England while ships carrying African slaves and all the necessities of 18th century colonial life dropped anchor in the bustling port town. You'll return with sun kissed skin, timeless memories as well as interesting historical tidbits to share with friends, like this one: Falmouth received piped water before New York City.

Cozumel, Mexico - The Conquistadors first saw Mexico from the shores of Cozumel while searching for gold. Today, visitors to the island continue to seek out gold and silver jewelry in the shops of San Miguel while having a great time in its many local bars and restaurants. Plus, the waters around Cozumel's sheltered coral reefs make this one of the best snorkeling areas in the world.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe. To visit their site and explore your options click here or on the link above. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.
