This full-day course will examine the usefulness and implementation of a variety of advanced neurologic monitoring modalities in the intensive care unit. Indications, choice of appropriate patients, advantages, and pitfalls will be discussed. Topics will include continuous electroencephalography (EEG), including post-processing modalities such as quantitative and amplitude-integrated EEG, brain tissue oxygenation, transcranial Doppler, microdialysis, and neurosonology, including ophthalmic ultrasound, intracranial pressure monitoring, biomarkers, and neuroimaging. A pediatric and adult case-based format will be incorporated, including medical and surgical clinical scenarios in cardiac arrest, stroke, traumatic brain injury, subarachnoid hemorrhage, and status epilepticus.
Providing palliative and end-of-life care in the ICU is one of a clinician's greatest challenges. This half-day course provides both didactic and experiential learning with multidisciplinary experts in the field. Attendees will learn the latest evidence in the fields of primary and specialty palliative care, as well as techniques to optimize complex discussions with clinicians, patients, and families. Participants will practice these skills in small group sessions focused on difficult conversations and formal family meetings.

This two-day program is designed for veterinary emergency and critical care practitioners, residents, and interns. The first day will feature an in-depth look at common toxicities affecting cats and dogs. The program will emphasize mechanism of action, diagnosis, and treatment of toxins leading to emergency presentation and requiring intensive care and support. Many veterinary intensive care units and emergency departments around the country have been faced with patient management in the face of a natural disaster. The second day of the program will cover common environmental emergencies that occur with fires and hurricanes, as well as facility preparedness, disaster response teams, and unanticipated events based on the experiences of the presenters. This course will take place on February 15 - February 16, 2019.
