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 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 5. Trauma

Trauma Education for Emergency Medical Personnel's

Trauma education are very important and essential components of a robust trauma program. Each educational programs can provide focused and structured learning about trauma management to various medical practitioners.

Prehospital Management of Trauma Patients

Prehospital management of trauma patients developed over the last decades. and the treatment that patients receive in the field may be significantly alter their outcome. Thus, it is essential to optimize trauma care in the field when trauma patients have their first contact with medical personnel.

Trauma System

From the point of view of trauma there is a lot of variation in outcomes across the system. So better organization of trauma care could ensure consistently higher standards of care. Several evidences suggest that applying trauma systems can reduce mortality rates in several countries.

The Update of Trauma Management in ER

Nowadays, new protocols and strategies are emerging to treat major trauma patients. The challenge in trauma care is to provide optimum care to injured patients in a changing environment in various resuscitative situation.

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.

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. 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.
