Track 1: Anesthesia
Anesthesia is given to a patient to control pain during a surgery or procedure by using medicine called anesthetics. It can help control your breathing, blood pressure, blood flow, and heart rate and rhythm. Various types of anesthesia affect the nervous system in different ways by arresting nerve impulses causing pain. In today's hospitals and surgery centers, highly trained professionals use a wide variety of safe, modern medications and extremely capable monitoring technology. A medical specialist specialized in injecting and managing anesthetics is an anesthesiologist. The anesthetic medications will numb a section of the body or make you fall and stay asleep.
Track 2: Cardiac Emergencies
One of the leading reasons for people seeking care in an emergency room is heart failure, a chronic condition that can trigger symptoms such as shortness of breath, fluid retention, rapid or irregular heartbeats, and more. Heart failure is one of the top causes for hospitalizations in the U.S. today. Cardiac emergencies are life-threatening disorders; they should be recognized and treated immediately to minimize morbidity and mortality. Cardiovascular problems cause the deaths of 2,400 Americans every day. The rates of cardiovascular related deaths are decreasing from the last few years. In both pre-hospitalization situations and emergency care units, healthcare providers have rallied to the task with awareness, more effective methods and medications have taken great strides forward in the care of emergent needs. To get this pervasive cause of death under control more remains to be done by prompt recognition and initiation of appropriate treatment we can do our best in the battle to save lives from this deadly plight.
Track 3: Wound & Burns
The risk for injury during and after a natural disaster is high. Any wound or burn has the potential for becoming infected and should be assessed by a health-care provider as soon as possible. The treatment of these patients is often lengthy and requires extensive resources. Intensive and specialized burn centers are in existence all over the world but are very often situated in high-income countries. These innovative and expensive treatment techniques play an important part, and also the way in which a burn suffering patient is initially managed carries an equally important role. Burn care should begin at the site of injury and continue through prehospital care and transportation to the closest burn center, or to the closest emergency department (ED) with advanced life support capability. Wounds in complex patients which are poorly managed can lead to the development of a chronic wound. In USA, approximately 5.7 million people required medical intervention for chronic wounds annually. A host of innovations, dressings and technologies are obtainable for assessing, diagnosing and treating wounds with the list growing.
Track 4: Anaphylaxis
The ruling anaphylactic reactions are to foods, insect stings, medications. Human immune system exaggerates to allergen by releasing chemicals into blood stream that cause allergy symptoms. Anaphylaxis needs immediate medication, with a prompt injection of epinephrine and a trip to a hospital emergency department. Anaphylaxis can be fatal if it isn’t treated properly. Accurate diagnosis and successful management of allergies is essential. It is estimated that there are 30000 anaphylactic reactions to foods treated in emergency departments. The unpredictability of anaphylaxis is one of the most difficult aspects of living with a food allergy. The effectiveness of epinephrine and a growing awareness of the seriousness of food allergies made deaths from anaphylaxis not common. Those at highest risk for fatal reactions appear to be teenagers or young adults who also have asthma and who delay in receiving epinephrine. Research has shown that many fatalities could have been prevented if this life-saving medication had been administered immediately.
Track 5: Toxicologic Emergencies
Annually, more than 2 million people report toxic exposures to the American Association of Poison Control Centers in the United States. Toxicological emergencies involve acute poisonings, overdoses or intake of abuse/illegal substances, over the counter medications and prescription drugs. Antidotes are available for a variety of substances. An antidote is physiological antagonist that reverses the signs and symptoms of poisoning the drug or toxin can be quickly identified by a careful history, a directed physical examination, and commonly available laboratory tests. Attempts to identify the toxin should never be delayed. Once the patient condition is stable, the physician needs to consider how to nullify the bioavailability of toxin not yet absorbed, which antidotes to administer, and whether other measures to enhance elimination are necessary.
Track 6: Abdominal Emergencies
Abdominal emergencies usually present with abdominal pain in association with other signs and symptoms. Sudden abdominal pain is often an indicator of serious intra-abdominal disease. Any delay in determining the diagnosis can lead to significant morbidity and even mortality. Abdominal pain is the reason about 3% of adults sees their family physician. The rate of emergency department visits in the United States for abdominal pain increased 18% from 2006 through 2011. This was the largest increase out of 20 common conditions seen in the ED. Pain is observed in any quadrant of the abdomen and may be irregular, sharp or dull, achy or intent; it may radiate from a focal site and there may be associated symptoms such as nausea and vomiting.
Track 7: Neurologic Emergencies
Neurologic emergencies often arise and, if not diagnosed and treated quickly, they can have catastrophic results, with high rates of long-term disability and death. Prompt recognition is an important skill. During the past decades, the world has witnessed a significant improvement in the treatment of neurologic diseases. In addition, emergency department (ED) management of patients with neurological emergencies, including stroke, traumatic brain injury, and subarachnoid hemorrhage, continues to evolve at a rapid pace. Point-of-care technologies that impact the triage, transport, or treatment of these patients are critically needed. The lack of these technologies may result in delayed identification of patients of these devastating conditions and contribute to less aggressive therapies than is seen with other disease processes. Development of time-dependent technologies appropriate for use with the neurologically ill patients is needed to improve therapies and outcomes.
Track 8: Gynecologic/Obstetric Emergencies
Gynecologic/Obstetric emergencies occur mostly in women of reproductive age but can affect women of all ages. Over the past decade, severe maternal morbidity in the United States has increased by 75% for complications associated with delivery and, specifically, 114% for postpartum hemorrhage. The most common emergencies were prolonged/obstructed labour, postpartum haemorrhage, fetal distress, severe pregnancy-induced hypertension/eclampsia, and antepartum haemorrhage. Prevention/effective management of obstetric emergencies will help to reduce maternal and perinatal mortality in our environment. Non-pregnant women with abdominal pain often present diagnostic difficulties. The incidence of pelvic inflammatory disease is increasing, despite advances in diagnosis and treatment. Uterine haemorrhage remains a common problem which often responds to modern medical treatments, including progestogens, intravenous oestrogen.
Track 9: Psychiatric/Social Emergencies
People suffer with different types of psychiatric health problems during and long after emergencies. Patients will be more likely to recover if they feel secured, connected, calm and hopeful; have access to social, physical and emotional support; and seek ways to help themselves. In spite of their mental disorders, psychiatric emergencies are also chances to build better mental health systems for all patients in need. Global progress on mental health reform will happen more quickly if, in every crisis, efforts are made to convert short-term interest in mental health into momentum for long-term improvement. Mental health is essential to the overall wellbeing, functioning, and resilience of individuals, societies, and countries recovering from emergencies. Psychiatric disorders are found in up to 90% of people who commit suicide and the time span following the decision to commit suicide is often very short, within 24 h. In psychiatry and psychotherapy, suicide prevention is a central duty and obligation.
Track 10: Respiratory Emergencies
The lung has umpteen functions beyond ‘simple’ gas exchange one function is to strain out large solid things from the circulation so they do not hit your brain, heart or other important organs. Respiratory emergency develops when lungs become very inflamed due to a severe infection or injury. The inflammation causes the air sacs to collapse and fluid from nearby blood vessels to leak into the lungs. Over time, the lungs will become so full of fluid that breathing becomes and will lead to death. A patient’s airway and breathing are critical to their survival. A large, prospective European trial estimated that 7.1 percent of patients admitted to an ICU and 16.1 percent of all patients on mechanical ventilation develop acute lung injury or ARDS. The in-hospital mortality rate for these conditions is estimated to be between 34 and 55 percent.
Track 11: Emergency Imaging
It is crucial for the emergency radiographer to be aware of the different imaging modalities, and have more than a passing knowledge of different pathologic processes that may be seen in patients presenting with both traumatic and nontraumatic emergencies. The most important changes in the fields of emergency medicine and surgery have come about because of the tremendous advancements in radiologic imaging that we have witnessed in the past years. Emergency radiology is now becoming a specialist area and the presence of radiologists on site in major accident and emergency departments is essential for the smooth running of the service. Teleradiology is the transmission of radiographic images from one location to another for interpretation by an appropriately trained professional, usually a Radiologist or Reporting Radiographer. The major benefit of teleradiology is the facility to use it in different time zones to provide real-time emergency radiology services around-the-clock.
Track 12: Endocrine Emergencies
Endocrine emergencies constitute only about 1.5% of all hospital admission. Most physicians will see diabetic emergencies on a regular basis, as they are common. However, nondiabetic endocrine emergencies are rarer and require a high index of suspicion. The true incidence of primary endocrine emergencies is not well defined, which is likely because the disease process is often not recognized. This is particularly relevant in adrenal insufficiency and has led to potentially avoidable excess morbidity and mortality. The timely diagnosis and administration of timely therapeutics in common endocrine disorders like severe thyroid disease, acute adrenal insufficiency and diabetic ketoacidosis significantly influence the outcome and prognosis. the practicing intensivist needs not only to be able to diagnose and manage these conditions as presenting diagnoses but also to recognize endocrine emergencies in the context of critical care more generally.
Track 13: Musculoskeletal /Orthopedic Emergencies
Emergency orthopedics is an integral part of the practice of emergency medicine. Musculoskeletal problems account for an estimated 3.5 million emergency department (ED) attendances each year. In most instances, these injuries include loss of mechanical function of the limb, such as suspensory apparatus disruption , fracture, tendon transection or rupture, ligament rupture, and joint lixation, but will also include life-threatening joint injuries/infection and lacerations of the limb neurovascular supply. Musculoskeletal trauma includes injuries affecting the pelvis, upper and lower limbs. These injuries occur in a large number of multiply-injured patients and, as such, are often underestimated, incorrectly treated, and occasionally undiagnosed. Although, the definitive treatment of fractures and joint injuries is managed by the orthopedist, the first steps properly taken by the emergency physician are essential for an accurate prognosis and appropriate triage.
Track 14: Pediatric Emergencies
Children are a unique and significant subset of patients presenting to the emergency department. Pediatric emergencies account for only 20% of all medical emergencies. From asthma exacerbations to seizures to trauma, pediatric emergencies test the mettle of emergency department. Emergency physicians have revealed that delivering emergency care to children causes extreme emotional stress and anxiety. It’s important to understand that not all doctors are trained to handle pediatric emergencies. Emergency Pediatric Physicians are the best doctors to see for these types of situations. Improvements in pediatric education for emergency medical technicians, and a new emergency medical technician basic curriculum is lacking in these days. Clinical deterioration in children develops more rapidly than in adults, but with correct treatment the child has a greater capacity for quick and complete recovery.
Track 15: Dermatologic Emergencies
Despite the broad impression impregnated in the old saying that dermatology patients never die and never get well, dermatology does involve emergencies. Dermatologic problems represent about 15%–20% of visits to family physicians and emergency departments. Life-threatening dermatologic conditions include Rocky Mountain spotted fever; necrotizing fasciitis; toxic epidermal necrolysis; and Stevens-Johnson syndrome. It is necessary to acquire skills in ‘emergency dermatology’, where a dermatologist’s right decision and intervention can make an important difference between life and death. Emergencies in dermatology are best categorized into primary skin diseases and severe systemic disorders with cutaneous manifestations. Dermatologic Emergencies could all lead to acute skin failure with its attendant sequelae such as sepsis, multi organ failure and pulmonary embolism. Skin failure is an emerging concept which refers to a state of total dysfunction of the skin resulting from different aetiological factors.
Track 16: Renal and Genitourinary Emergencies
Genitourinary Emergencies are a common complaint in the emergency department. Urinary tract infections are the second most common infection in the body and affect women more often than men. Up to one in five females will have at least one UTI in their lifetime. Kidney stones are one of the most common disorders of the urinary tract. The Genito urinary tract consists of the kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, urethra, and external genitalia. Acute renal failure (ARF) is the abrupt loss of renal function such that body fluid homeostasis can no longer be maintained. Patients with compromised renal function often arrive at the Emergency Department with life-threatening fluid and electrolyte imbalances. Emergency physicians often play an important role in the evaluation and management of renal disease. Early recognition, diagnosis, prevention of further iatrogenic injury, and management of renal disease have important implications for long-term morbidity and mortality.
Track 17: Environmental Emergencies
Emergency situations, including those due to natural hazards like earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, landslides, wildfires and droughts and technological hazards like chemical spills, disruption to infrastructure, complex situations produced by conflict and outbreaks. These emergencies often occur without warning and can lead to health-related diseases and affect populations in all contexts.
Track 18: Emergency Nursing
Humans have been accosted with the unexpected, sometimes resulting in medical emergencies. When physical injury or crisis is involved, we seek out the comforts provided by physicians and nurses to ease our pain and help us heal. An Emergency Nurse is characterized by high degrees of knowledge and skills, with diagnostic and decision-making power to accomplish immediately needed activities in autonomous fashion or in the closely-collaborative team approach with other health professionals.
