What is this meeting about? 

Critical Points is a high intensity CME course teaching the critical care skills needed to best manage the acutely dying patient.  Specifically designed for emergency physicians, hospitalists and surgeons, this unique course gives the attendee the framework and tools to feel confident caring for the critically ill patient.  Expert faculty use a blend of interactive case-based lectures, hands-on workshops, and group simulation to model the principles of resuscitation, and teach lifesaving skills such as advanced airway management, emergency surgical airway, ultrasound, and chest tube thoracostomy. Nationally regarded speakers employ interactive case-based scenarios and hands-on simulations to lead the attendees in the goal directed management of sepsis, multiple trauma, cardiac and respiratory failure. From the initial resuscitation, to the first critical hours of stabilization this comprehensive course provides the attendee with the confidence and skills to optimize the outcome of the patient. The mission of Critical Points is to educate emergency physicians and hospitalists in accordance with the highest standards, preparing them to best manage the acutely dying patient, and to grant medical providers the confidence and skills necessary to optimize patient outcomes.

We hope to see you in Charleston, SC!

"Brilliant course, so much fun learning, appreciated the wealth of knowledge. Will recommend course to colleagues, will do it again in a minute. Great contribution to medical education."

"This is the best emergency medicine conference I have ever attended. I am returning to my ED with intent to provide education to others who work with me especially nurse and other staff."

"The instructors are all outstanding. The Wynn was a great choice for the conference. My expectations were exceeded. Some of the conference sessions alone were worth the tuition. All medical conferences should be this good."

"This was an excellent course and the faculty was outstanding. I was impressed by the references to the most recent evidence-based medicine to back up why we do what we do. I learned so much and will definitely recommend to others."

"Dr. DeBelieux as well as the other faculty greatly enhanced my critical care skills. This gives me greater confidence in managing critical patients. Dr. DeBlieux should be proud that he greatly improved physicians skills. Many patient’s lives will be saved as a result."

"Physrythmia EKG lecture was one of the best, as was the ultrasound."

As a nerver PA, I felt like this was a great conference and offered a lot of great information. I really enjoyed the skills and procedures workshops.
