Take a “ride along” with a helicopter critical care transport team and choose the appropriate management for critical patients encountered at referring hospitals and in the back of an ambulance at a scene. Attendees will be provided with history and physical assessment findings and then will choose the best course of treatment via a webpage on their cell phone or mobile device. These responses will form the basis for discussing several critical care management guidelines, including blood gas analysis and therapy for ARDS-like lung pathology, persistent hypotension and vasopressors, identifying the "man down" due to possible toxicological cause, and the use of point-of-care ultrasound to direct management of the critically ill patient with undifferentiated shock.
