The care of injured and critically ill patients is complex and challenging. The Trauma and Critical Care Symposium aims to give clear guidelines to practicing clinicians who manage such patients. The Symposium offers an ideal mix of the traditional standard-of-care principles with new, leading-edge information. It explores issues related to resuscitation, surgical techniques, bleeding control, inflammation and infection, respiratory care, nutrition, prehospital care, rehabilitation and ethics.
To provide a fine balance between the multiple facets of care encountered, the Symposium runs joint sessions in the morning and specialty sessions in the afternoon. In joint sessions, problems common to all specialties caring for trauma and critically ill surgical patients are explored. In the specialty sessions, the topics presented are related more specifically to anesthesiologists or surgeons. Among the highlights of the Symposium are debate sessions and expert panels that discuss real-life cases and seek audience participation. The education delivered is exciting, readily applicable and memorable.
This Symposium provides in-depth and leading-edge information in the field of critical care and trauma.
