Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Emergency Medicine Volume 30, Issue 22: Fractures.
The goal of this program is to improve the management of fractures and the unstable patient with a pelvic fracture. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Discuss the criteria for determining the timing of definitive repair of fractures.
2. Elaborate on how the systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) and the compensatory anti-inflammatory response syndrome affect the timing of fracture fixation.
3. Determine the safe periods for performing fracture fixation.
4. Recommend computed tomography to determine the presence of pelvic arterial bleeding.
5. Adopt a protocol for the management of an unstable patient with a pelvic fracture.
The original programs were presented by Ronald Simon, MD, Professor of Surgery, New York University School of Medicine, and Director of Acute Care Surgery, NYU Medical Center/Bellevue Hospital Center, New York, NY, David Wisner, MD, Professor and Vice Chair of Surgery, University of California, Davis, School of Medicine, Sacramento, and H. Gill Cryer, MD, Professor of Surgery, Ronald Reagan University of California, Los Angeles, Medical Center.
