5 Can't-Miss EKGS with Jennifer Carlquist, PA-C

In this recorded webinar, Jennifer Carlquist, PA-C, will give you a process and practice for spotting 5 concerning arrhythmias you can't afford to get wrong on EKGs. She'll teach you to plot the patterns and read between the lines, so you make good catches instead of misses.

This recorded program covers:

Identify two high-risk findings that can kill young people. Learn why you should get an EKG any time a young patient presents with palpitations or syncope, and how to look for ticking time bombs. Differentiate STEMI from its mimics so you can determine when to treat and discharge, refer to primary care or cardiology, or rush to the ED. Decipher EKGs to spot warning signs and pathologic patterns (delta waves, biphasic waves, Wolff Parkinson White syndrome and more)

If you appreciated the practical, evidence-based pearls presented during the webinar, you're sure to benefit from EB Medicine's practice-improving resources. EB Medicine joined forces with Jennifer Carlquist, PA-C, to bring you The Urgent Care EKG Course, an in-depth training program focused on EKG interpretation essentials and best practices. This expert-guided self-study course picks up where your academic program and previous training likely left off. The Urgent Care EKG Course gives you practical, hands-on, time-tested techniques for enhancing clinical skills, improving accuracy of EKG interpretation, and, in so doing, boosting clinician confidence.

Fireproof Your Finances: Expand Your Provider Skills, Expand Your Urgent Care

Urgent care operators have struggled for years with hiring and retaining providers skilled in injury procedures. When loyal patients are turned away for reasons advertised as treatable at the clinic, the patient's trust is broken and they may never return.

According to the Journal of Urgent Care Medicine, laceration repairs performed in urgent cares have decreased by 27.7% from 2019 to 2022. The Urgent Care Association reported that 15% of urgent care providers are not offering basic X-ray services at all, while many more turn patients away when they do not have staff to support their radiology equipment. While operators cite skill and cost as barriers to entry, research shows that there is a higher price to pay for both providers and patients in not making the small investments in these services that offer big returns.

In this webinar + Q&A, you'll learn:

  • Industry data surrounding the financial benefits of keeping injury patients in urgent cares, supply trends, and how degrading acuity in urgent cares affects healthcare consumer trust
  • 5 key strategies to improve high acuity competency and consistency in your urgent care clinics
  • Where to begin if your business is not performing laceration repairs currently due to a lack of skilled providers or perceived costs
  • How a real urgent care increased their financial and patient loyalty outcomes through increasing provider skill levels

Urgent Care Management of Acute Gastroenteritis in Pediatric Patients

In this webinar, Emily Montgomery, MD, MHPE, FAAP will discuss Acute gastroenteritis, the most common discharge diagnosis for children who present to urgent care with nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

In this 1-hour webinar moderated by Chrysa Charno, PA-C, MBA, FCUCM, Dr. Montgomery will discuss;

  • The signs and symptoms that indicate a case of acute gastroenteritis (AGE) in a pediatric patient versus a more serious illness that may require transfer to the emergency department.
  • Indications for laboratory testing in pediatric patients with AGE.
  • The appropriate use of antiemetics to increase the chance that oral rehydration will be successful.
  • Evidence-based recommendations for diet and fluid intake for patients who are discharged home, including the latest evidence on the use of probiotics and prebiotics in the treatment of AGE.

Audience Q&A is also addressed within this webinar.

Tick-Borne Illness: An Emerging Threat

In this webinar led by Dr. Christopher Chao and moderated by Dr. Joseph Toscano, tick-borne disease is addressed as an emerging health threat in the United States. Ticks are known to transmit bacterial, viral, and parasitic disease to humans, and while early treatment of tick-borne illness usually results in good outcomes, a missed diagnosis can lead to disability and death. In the urgent care setting, tick-borne illnesses can be challenging to diagnose due to nonspecific presentations and the limitations of testing in early disease.

Within this hour, Dr. Chao addresses identification of tick-borne illnesses in the United States, proper tick removal procedure, signs and symptoms of illness, limitations of lab testing, and more.

Dr. Chao is the current President of the College of Urgent Care Medicine and an active member of the Urgent Care Association. Dr. Chao is also an urgent care physician with WakeMed Health and Hospitals in Raleigh, North Carolina. He is passionate about teaching and mentoring students and clinicians who want to transition to the practice of urgent care medicine.

Traumatic Hemorrhagic Shock in the ED

Hemorrhagic shock is the major preventable cause of morbidity and mortality in patients who suffer trauma. The management of traumatic hemorrhagic shock has evolved, with increasing emphasis on damage control resuscitation principles, and it requires swift coordination of ED resources and protocols.

This 1-hour didactic, by leading critical care expert Dr. Scott Weingart, will present evidence-based recommendations for:

  • Logistics of massive transfusion
  • Lethal tetrad (rather than lethal triad)
  • Factor replacement
  • Crystalloid's role (none)
  • Monitoring
  • When and how to intubate a bleeding patient
  • The hemorrhagic cardiac arrest

The Timing-and-Triggers Approach to the Patient with Acute Dizziness

Although dizziness is common in the ED, understanding the fundamentals of physical examination findings in dizzy patients can be difficult. By using a "timing-and-triggers" approach instead of the old "what do you mean, 'dizzy'?" approach, you can more confidently make the correct diagnosis and ensure that patients with central causes of dizziness receive appropriate care in a timely manner. This course will answer the following questions and more:

This live event will discuss:

  • How dizziness patients can be categorized into one of three strata. For each strata, both benign and more serious specific diagnoses will be identified.
  • A systematic history, physical exam, and neurological exam, so the evaluation of dizziness patients can be streamlined and efficient.
  • Nystagmus, the role of the CNS, and the role of the peripheral vestibular system will be clarified, so it’s possible to interpret this important physical exam finding in dizzy patients who are evaluated in the acute setting.
  • EMR documentation tips that will allow the practitioner to use templates to create effective dizziness patient charts.

Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

  1. Utilize the timing-and-triggers approach to diagnose patients who present with dizziness
  2. Identify the differential diagnosis of vestibular syndromes
  3. Recognize a posterior circulation transient ischemic attack in patients presenting with transient episodes of dizziness
  4. Utilize bedside physical examination maneuvers to diagnose and treat acute dizziness, when appropriate
  5. Identify management caveats related to COVID-19 for patients presenting with dizziness
