August 5, 2015

8:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Traumatic Brain Injury and Cerebral Vascular Injury

Location:
Lompoc Valley Medical Center, Surf Room

Seminar Topic(s):

Please join us for an in-depth look at the pathophysiology of the injured brain. Learn how the body and brain attempt to adapt to the assault. The primary injury has occurred; your focus will be on preventing the secondary brain injury that follows. Each of us who will be caring for that victim has a part in that patient’s potential outcome.

Instructor:
Suz Roehl, RN - Critical Care Flight Nurse with CALIFORNIA Shock Trauma Air Rescue (CALSTAR) Suz has 26 years of critical care and emergency nursing in a diverse background of Pediatric ICU, Burn ICU, CV ICU, Level 1 Trauma ED, Flight Nursing and Clinical Nursing Educator for ICU and ED.

This Seminar is appropriate for nurses, paramedics and first responders, and will provide 3 hours of continuing education credit.

Have Package, Ready to Travel!

Location:
Hazel Hawkins Memorial Hospital, Great Room in the Support Services Bldg.

Agenda::

Whether you are paramedic responding to a vehicle accident or a nurse working in the ED or ICU, a rapid, systematic patient assessment is the critical first step in the care of your trauma victim. This entails a rapid primary survey which includes airway, breathing, circulation (with hemorrhage control), all while exposing your patient fully. This is the time that a life threatening injury is immediately treated. Your secondary survey is a rapid head to toe assessment identifying all of the patient’s injuries.

Many obstacles arise that can prevent a proper, and often lifesaving, assessment. Lacking a systematic approach, focused attention of distracting injuries and the speed and efficiency of your exam is critical. Utilizing the understanding of anatomy and physiology, anatomical differences of adults and pediatric and incorporating the understanding of how injuries occur (mechanism of injury) can only enhance your Primary and secondary survey. It can and will make a difference!

Whenever you are preparing to transfer your patient to another facility, the patient and all collected data must be organized and provided to maintain the optimal continuity of care.

Speaker:
Suz Roehl, RN - Critical Care Flight Nurse with CALIFORNIA Shock Trauma Air Rescue (CALSTAR). Suz has 26 years of critical care and emergency nursing in a diverse background of Pediatric ICU, Burn ICU, CV ICU, Level 1 Trauma ED, Flight Nursing and Clinical Nursing Educator for ICU and ED.

This Seminar is appropriate for nurses, paramedics and EMTs, and will provide 3.5 hours of continuing education credit.

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Burn Management

Location:
Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital, Building 3 Outpatient Center, Conference Room 130

Lecture Topic(s): :

Burns are a leading cause of accidental injury and death in the United States and worldwide. Each year approximately one million people in the United States seek medical care for burns, approximately one-third of these in the emergency department (ED). Although the vast majority of injuries do not require hospitalization, severe burns can lead to significant morbidity and death. In this lecture, we will discuss; the differences associated with pediatric and adult burn patients, classification of burns, treatment, and case studies.

Lecturer: :
Michelle Oddi, RN, MSN, CFRN, CCRN, C-NPT

Michelle is a Critical Care Flight Nurse with CALIFORNIA Shock Trauma Air Rescue (CALSTAR).

This Lecture is appropriate for nurses, paramedics and first responders, and will provide 2 hours of continuing education credit.

8:30 AM - 4:45 PM

Acute Brain Care, from Fetus to Child

Location:
Mission Bay Conference Center, Betty Irene Women’s Hospital, William & Susan Oberndorf Auditorium

Symposium Topic(s):

Knowledge of common neurological diagnosis and management is an essential component to pediatric, neonatal, and maternal-fetal care. This program will review selected neurological diagnoses, current treatments and outcomes, as well as research in neuroprotection from the perspectives of emergent presentation, transport, and tertiary care.

Desired Outcomes::

  • • Apply best practices in perinatal and pediatric neurosciences, including stroke, seizures, head injury, cardiac arrest
  • • Recognize major findings in basic neonatal/pediatric neuroimaging studies
  • • Utilize technological and programmatic advances extending perinatal and pediatric tertiary care center support to community institutions and providers
  • • Demonstrate emergent resuscitation skills as applicable to neurologic disease or neuroprotection in maternal-fetal, neonatal, and/or pediatric settings
  • • Understand basic infant and pediatric emergent neurologic disease issues sufficiently to be able to orient parents correctly to the respective diagnosis, and prime them for further education in the pediatric tertiary care center.
