H&R2019 The Hospitalist & The Resuscitationist: The Essentials On Demand!

As requested, H&R2019 was recorded, and “The Essentials” is now available on-demand –  CME is currently under processing, so it is currently offered at a temporarily reduced price, until formal accreditation is finalized.

This represents most of the talks originally given in Montreal on May 23rd and 24th, as well as some bonus footage of several workshops as well as some didactic and practical sessions from the pre-congress courses.

Of course, nothing beats being at a conference, especially H&R, whose ethos is not only cutting-edge, but even more so, cutting thru barriers between specialties and between attendees and faculty to take everyone’s game to the next level. But hey, if you couldn’t make it, this is the next best thing.

This second iteration of the coolest conference in Canada brought together a fantastic faculty from all over Canada, the US, Europe and Australia to explore various facets of acute care, from the ED to the wards and the ICU.

Note that this is complimentary for H&R2019 attendees and faculty. If you are, please email hospresusconference@gmail.com to obtain your access code.

         This activity is brought to you by the Cabrini Critical Care Group, and represents 30 key lectures from the annual Hospitalist & Resuscitationist Conference, held at Santa Cabrini Hospital in Montreal, Canada, every spring. Each lecture is approximately 15-20 minutes. There is additional bonus footage from the workshops, the Hospitalist POCUS and Critical Care Procedures courses.

BONUS WORKSHOP & COURSE VIDEOS – this bonus section brings you into some of the workshops of H&R2019, and while watching is no substitute for hands-on practice, these clips are packed with clinical pearls only seasoned veterans can share, and make for a great review prior to doing these procedures as well as teaching them to colleagues and trainees. Due to the organic nature of the workshops, we were not always able to catch the very beginning of each discussion, so we do apologize if you feel like you’re just “jumping in,” but it’s better than missing out! In certain workshops, the audio quality is imperfect due to hearing other groups as well, but again we felt there is valuable learning nonetheless. These reasons are why this is a bonus section.

Lung Ultrasound – OLUSANYA & SPIEGEL

Renal Doppler  – HAYCOCK

Micropuncture kits and Midline Catheters  – SPIEGEL

REBOA – HAYCOCK

…and the bonus section may keep growing as we work on cleaning up audio as much as possible.
