Topic 2. Resuscitation

How to enhance chain of survival? Part I

Cardiac arrest is worldwide public health problem. To improve survival after cardiac arrest, the chain of survival should be strengthened. In this session, we will look at each step of the chain of survival and how we can strengthen each chain.

How to enhance chain of survival? Part II

Cardiac arrest is worldwide public health problem. To improve survival after cardiac arrest, the chain of survival should be strengthened. In this session, we will look at each step of the chain of survival and how we can strengthen each chain.

Highlights in ALS

Drugs used during ALS are still controversial. In this session, we will review the current evidences for the major drugs used during ALS and discuss the topics to be studied in the future.

Critical care after CA

Targeted temperature management (TTM) is now recommended as standard care after cardiac arrest. However, the optimal dose is still unknown. In this session, we will discuss the latest knowledge of TTM after cardiac arrest. In addition, we will discuss the recent findings of emergency coronary angiography and the detection and management of seizures commonly occurring after cardiac arrest.
Topic 3. Nurses

Topic 4. Toxicology

The National Poisons Centre experience

In September 2017, only 46% of WHO member states have a poison center. The Poison Center serves to advise and support the prevention, diagnosis and management of poisoning. The role of the poison center varies from telephone consultation on toxic substances to toxicology laboratories and treatment of poisoned patients, depending on the medical environment in each continent or country. Therefore, we would like to compare the roles of typical toxic centers in each continent.

Antidote – Is it really useful? (something old, something new, something borrowed)

An antidote is a substance that can counteract a form of poisoning. Although clinicians use only positive effects when using antidote for toxic patients, side effects are also common. Let's take a look at oxime, lipid emulsion, flumazenil, and naloxone, which are antioxidants commonly used in the emergency room, to determine whether the use of antidote to toxic patients improves the clinical outcome.

Toxicology of specific pesticide

Pesticides are a group of substances with heterogeneous toxicity, the main groups are insecticides, fungicides, herbicides and rodenticides. Let's look at the clinical features and treatment of each of the pesticides of organophosphate, pyrethroid, glyphosate and paraquat.

Toxicology management of the critically poisoned patient

The clinical outcome of poisoned patients depends on various variables such as dose, time of exposure and patient's existing health. If poisoning is detected early and adequate supportive care is initiated quickly, most of the patient outcomes will improve, but if not, long-term care should be provided. The purpose of this topic was to investigate the biomarkers of predicting the severity of patients and to evaluate the indications and clinical experience of CRRT and ECMO which are frequently used in critically poisoned patients.

Topic 9. Paramedicine

An analysis of 2018 MASTER study : ‘Where we are’ and ‘Where we have to be’

The emergency medical technician (EMT) profession, which was produced along with the establishment of Korea’s emergency medical service (EMS) in 1995, has grown key personnel for EMS. More than 20 years later, the 2018 Mass Survey on EMTs in the Republic of Korea (MASTER) now collects and analyzes EMT personnel’s status, curriculum, practice, and academic roless as the first official large-scale survey on Korean EMTs conducted in cooperation with the Korean Association of Emergency Medical Technician, the Korean Society of Emergency Medical Services, and the Department of the Emergency Medical Service Professor Council. 2018 MASTER’s results are expected to shed light on the social role of EMTs in Korea’s rapidly growing EMS and serve as a basic reference usefully for quality growth in education, research, and practice. (Korean session)

International paramedicine - System matters ?

While it is difficult to categorize EMS, which is combined with various factors, into a particular model, EMS can be divided conceptually from different perspectives. For instance, there are a medical direction, a self-regulation model, and BLS and ALS models. They are the constructs that make up a complex medical system in each country. While there is little evidence that supports a particular EMS system, they should be taken into account when conducting an EMS literature review since their strengths and weaknesses are often crossed and exchanged, and another model is introduced as an alternative for a particular model. This session will examine EMS models’ strengths and weaknesses and provide an opportunity to expand an understanding of EMS.
Topic 10. Emergency Cardiology

Electrocardiography of acute myocardial infarction

Diagnosis of ventricular tachycardia

Echocardiography of acute coronary syndrome

Topic 20. Education

Challenges of EM education and training

Recently, there are many new changes in the field of emergency medicine such as education for multinational medical staff, interprofessional education, various contents and methods of education, and we would like to share the experiences.

EM professionalism

Since the 21st century, the concept of medical professionalism has been changed in the era of the 4th industrial revolution and artificial intelligence. There is also a change in the professional competency that emergency physicians have to offer. Therefore, we would like to discuss medical professionalism and professional identity formation of emergency physicians.
Topic 21. IT EM

Information Technology in EM (1): ED service Innovation through emerging health information technology

In the era of the fourth industrial revolution, information technology will be necessary in the field of emergency medicine. Future technology will give emergency patients much extended services. In this session we are going to get a glimpse of the future medical environments.

Information Technology in EM (2): The Future of Emergency Medical Informatics

In the future, information technology will bring about a revolution. For example highly secured personal medical information will be shared and it will help to improve quality of emergency department care. As well as, artificial intelligence may change the role of emergency physician. In this session you will see a wave of transformation and what you will do for the revolution.
Topic 22. NGO ODA

How to develop and improve emergency care in African countries ?

Topic 23. Procedural Sedation and Analgesia

Procedural Sedation and Analgesia I - Ketamine, Propofol and Midazolam for Procedural sedation

Ketamine, propofol and midazolam are the widely used drugs for PSA. In this section we will focus on not only the mechanism of action, indication, general usage (dose, route of administration), side effect and combination but also combination drugs of ketamine, propofol and midazolam.
Topic 24. Sepsis

Current evidence based sepsis management

Sepsis is worldwide critical issue due to its high mortality rate. Periodically surviving sepsis campaign in SCCM and ESICM has reported an international guideline for sepsis management. In this session we are going to looking a critical sepsis management in guideline especially there still has been low evidence and argument such as fluid resuscitation, corticosteroid therapy etc. We hope to get a recent evidence of critical sepsis bundle therapy.

Emerging issues for sepsis management

Sepsis is a highly critical disease status. Its mortality rate is still high although bundle therapy in international sepsis guideline which focused rapid hemodynamic stabilization and infection control, has improved survival rate. Therefor we focused another emerging sepsis management such as metabolic resuscitation, nutritional support etc. We hope this session will open up new prospect of sepsis management.
Topic 25. Injury Prevention
