Meet the CriticalCareGuys
Join course director Amal Mattu and other University of Maryland faculty at The Crashing Patient conference in Baltimore on Oct 15-17, 2014.
Looking for a great Fall conference? Look no further! The Crashing Patient has been created to address both parties at risk in emergency medicine - the patient and the provider. Topics pertain to the optimal care of the sickest patients we see in daily ED practice - sepsis, cardiac ischemia, aortic dissection, etc. - as well as to educate attendees in how to bullet-proof themselves from the plaintiff attorneys. This conference will be the most productive you’ve ever attended! The goal is simple... to teach you how to save lives and to minimize risk of malpractice.
