Peter DeBlieux, MD, regularly teaches updates on critical care medicine for emergency medicine physicians. An emergency physician and intensivist, he practices both and teaches both at Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans. And at ACEP 2015, he wants to be a resource for emergency physicians who don’t have that luxury.

His session, “New Trends in Clinical Care for the Busy Emergency Physician,” will focus on new and updated strategies for stabilizing patients with rapidly dropping saturation, undifferentiated shock, coagulopathy, and sepsis, among other issues. It’s up to attendees to decide which topics may change their practice most.
“The goal of the session is to let practitioners walk away with at least three points that may change their care delivery, which may result in improved results for their patients,” said Dr. DeBlieux. “At least three practice changes, and hopefully more.”
Dr. DeBlieux hopes attendees get valuable information from his session, but he doesn’t want their approach to learning to stop there. “There are different tools that you can use,” he said, “everything from podcasts that focus on critical care to newsletters than focus on critical care to scouring the literature…we’re going to need to come up with some way to stay current. Critical care medicine in the ED is moving very quickly, and it is tough to remain current in our practice.”
