Course Description

In recent years, it has become all too common for critically ill patients to remain in the emergency department for exceedingly long periods of time. It is during these early hours of illness that many detrimental processes begin to take hold. It is during these early hours of illness that lives can be saved … or lost! In order to prevent unnecessary morbidity and mortality, the emergency physician must be an expert at resuscitating the critically ill patient.

Resuscitation for Emergency Physicians (REP) is an outstanding resuscitation course for the emergency physician that encompasses a broad spectrum of topics including undifferentiated shock, the critical airway, anaphylaxis, cardiac arrest, cardiogenic shock, emergency transfusions, toxicology disasters, sepsis, CNS catastrophes, and pediatric resuscitation. REP is the first integrated resuscitation course developed by an emergency medicine professional society that is tailored to the needs of emergency physicians. Emergency physicians who want to take a single resuscitation course taught at an advanced level, rather than taking ACLS, PALS and ATLS, will find REP to be an outstanding experience. Quite simply, this course will help you save lives!
