EM Monthly February 2024: Rare Emergency Procedures

Rare Emergency Procedures encompass a range of protocols and interventions that are highly time critical. A structured planned approach is needed to ensure such procedures are performed expeditiously and appropriately.

Key to this is a knowledge of when the procedure may benefit a patient and training in the procedure. As they are amongst the most complex events Emergency Physicians may encounter, coordination amongst the team enhanced by regular drills and simulation exercises is key to success. 

Learning from such rare events to refine protocols and sharing lessons learnt  is essential to ensure readiness.

This webinar will cover the following presentations and conclude with a Q&A session. Moderated by Dr. James Connolly.
