General Information
Welcome to the 2012 Society for Academic Emergency Medicine Annual Meeting. It is my distinct pleasure to
be your guide on what will undoubtedly be an enjoyable, educational, and enlightening 4 day extravaganza.
I have now used more words starting with the letter E than Ernest Vincent Wright; and thus feel so undignified.
The planning for the 2012 Annual Meeting began in earnest (here we go again) in early spring of 2011. It is
a true testament to the staff members at the home office in SAEM (I am particularly indebted to Maryanne
Greketis, Sandy Rummel, Holly Gouin, and Jason Smith) that despite all the moving pieces and steps in the
process, many of us will walk through the meeting and marvel at the day’s events.
As you attend the meeting, hopefully you will notice the many significant innovations we have implemented
for 2012. This was based upon extensive surveying of the general membership and in collaboration with the
various committees/task forces/academies within SAEM. Please allow me to introduce them to you:
1. The Resident Leadership Forum
Every year, SAEM hosts the Chief Resident Forum to much fanfare. However, many residents have often
asked why they couldn’t attend the forum as well considering the forum was ultimately designed to
cultivate the future generation of emergency medicine. Of course, opening the chief resident forum to
all residents would then change the meaning behind it. Hence, the creation of the Resident Leadership
Forum. This is all day event for the chief residents (just as before but with new lecture content), and an
open afternoon for any resident of any year. The afternoon session is applicable to chief and resident
alike as it focuses on growth potential.
2. The Junior Faculty Forum
Similar in theme (and as an all day event) to the resident leadership forum with regards to future EM
leadership foundation building, the junior faculty forum is designed specifically for those attendings in
the first few years of their career. It focuses on advancement in education, research, and administration—
as told through the eyes of faculty who have only recently passed through these formative years.
3. Academy Spotlight Sessions
The academies started from the humblest of beginnings—often as interest groups that boomed
with need and popularity. To honor their service to SAEM, spread throughout the Annual Meeting are
individual two hour academy sessions with content specifically designed by the Academies. This is an
addition to their various business meetings and other didactic/research initiatives.
4. Program Director Track Sessions
In response to the ever fluctuating ACGME requirements, and in understanding the special needs that
a PD or APD or burgeoning educator has, SAEM has pulled together some of the finest educators in
the country (and not just from EM) to discuss the present and future state of resident education. These
sessions will be held for one hour per day starting on Thursday.
5. Guided Oral Presentations
Two years ago, SAEM introduced the lightning oral. This year, we aim to move abstract presentations
in another direction once again. In these guided sessions each individual abstract presentation will be
followed by teaching points organized by the moderator. As a result, medical students, residents, and
faculty alike will not just hear the latest research but also learn about how it may impact their practice.
One session per day will be held in this format.
6.IEME
Innovations in emergency medicine education can take many forms, and often they involve similar
disciplines. The Program Committee introduces three themed IEME sessions: US, simulation, and
faculty-resident collaborations. In these sessions, you will learn about state of the art educational tools
as it pertains to a specific topic. In addition, IEME will also host three general sessions.
7. Networking events
At 11 am on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, SAEM will host a themed coffee-donuts mingling hour.
Leaders in research, technology, and education will be on hand to answer your questions and share in
your ideas.

8.Technology
Use your iphone or droid to download the free SAEM Annual Meeting or use your smartphone to go
directly to the annual meeting SAEM website (am2012.saem.org). Here you will find up to the minute
schedules, descriptions of sessions, and handouts. Also bring a poster with you as SAEM is proud to
introduce e-posters. Assuming the presenter uploaded their poster to the OASIS e-poster site, you can
view/zoom/and read a poster while sitting in the lobby or in your room.
No SAEM Annual Meeting is complete without the Medical Student Symposium and all our star studded
didactic and abstract sessions. 2012 has this and more as the Program Committee was able to expand
content and time by re-designing our traditional schedule grid. Enjoy!

focus on a specific aspect of successful grant writing. Stations will include: specific aims section, revising
and resubmitting grants, and other aspects of the grant application (i.e. budget, letter of recommendation
for career development awards).
** Optional Break-Out Session (2 hours max): Workshop attendees are invited to submit grant applications
that are being prepared for submission or resubmission before the event in order to gain valuable
feedback from our experts. During this optional session, participants that have submitted a grant for
feedback will have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with a reviewer to discuss how they can improve
their application. Grant applications for this session must be submitted by April 1, 2012. Only a limited
number of grants will be selected for this session. Preference will be given to federal grant applications
and applications that are complete or nearly-complete.

Resident Leadership Forum - Thursday, May 10, 2012
The 2012 Annual Meeting will mark the initiation of the
SAEM Annual Resident Leadership Forum, formerly the Chief
Resident Forum. We’ve taken all the traditional and timehonored sessions of the Chief Resident Forum and enhanced
them with fresh new didactics on strategies for success
during residency and beyond.

Advances in the Evaluation and
Treatment of Acetaminophen Poisoning
DS172 • Chicago 6
Session Time: Wednesday, May 9, 2012 - 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Over the past several years, emergency medicine researchers have made
several advances that have are changing the evaluation and treatment of
acetaminophen-poisoned patients. Historically, patients are risk stratified by
plotting a timed serum acetaminophen concentration on the Rumack-Matthew
Nomogram. This approach is limited as the time of ingestion is often unknown.
Two new time-independent approaches have recently been described. One
uses standard laboratory methods (the serum acetaminophen concentration
and serum ALT) and the other uses a novel biomarker (acetaminophenprotein adducts). Drs. Sivilotti and Heard are leading researchers who have
developed these methods. They will describe the applications and limitations
of these methods for the evaluation of acetaminophen-poisoned patients.
The other main advancement in the treatment of acetaminophen poisoning
has been modification of the duration of treatment. While classic treatment is
time-based, recent work suggests that a patient-tailored approach may allow
truncation in therapy for many patients, while providing additional protection
to high-risk patients. Dr. Hoppe, a co-investigator in a recent multi-center trial
describing the treatment of more than 400 acetaminophen poisoned patients,
will review the literature and describe the application and limitations of the
shortened course of treatment. The session will include a brief introduction
three clinical presentations and end with a wrap up with audience questions
and the panel will address what additional research is required and how these
exciting advances can be incorporated into clinical practice.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Risk stratify acetaminophen poisoned patients using these new methods.
2) Describe how novel biomarkers may be used for the evaluation of
acetaminophen poisoning.
3) Apply the latest studies describing acetylcysteine treatment protocols to
acetaminophen poisoned patients.

Spatial Information, Geographic Information Systems (GIS),
and Geo-Spatial Methods in Public Health and Emergency
Care Research
DS193 • Chicago 6
Session Time: Wednesday, May 9, 2012 - 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Incorporating spatial information, GIS and geo-spatial methods into research
and application is becoming increasingly popular among medical and public
health researchers. Long used by urban planners, geographers, and industries
such as shipping and transportation, such methods only recently started to be
applied to problems of infectious disease spread, environmental carcinogenic
exposures, and emergency medical care access and delivery. This session will
first describe how macro-level concerns such as the availability of specialty
care and the development of care systems can make use of spatial information,
GIS, and geo-spatial methods to fully describe problems and help to identify
solutions. Subsequent speakers will briefly present real-life examples of
how spatial information, GIS, and geo-spatial methods have been used in
research and practice and have been an asset to more traditional analyses by
broadening scope and potential efficacy. Participants will be exposed to a new
and exciting perspective on data that you know and love by considering its
place in space and its location in geography in order to approach research and
system development in a new light. There will be an overview of how spatial
information, GIS, and geo-spatial methods can complement and enhance
traditional analyses, and show the immense range of potential applications.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Explain fundamental analysis considerations of spatial information, GIS, and
geo-spatial methods and how they differ from traditional analysis.
2) Describe the concept of population planning and how it relates to spatial
information in designing and measuring systems of care.
3) Validate spatial information, GIS, and geo-spatial methods that have been
used in research and real-life systems development.

Ethics in Disasters:
Responsible Resource Stewardship in Times of Crisis
DS163 • Sheraton 5
Session Time: Wednesday, May 9, 2012 - 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Recent events have brought the issue of responsible resource stewardship
to the forefront. Specific shortages, such as a lack of ventilators during a
pandemic influenza outbreak, or general shortages, such as those seen after
the Haitian earthquake, are predicted to occur during future disasters. Policy
makers and providers alike must prepare to make tough moral choices when
resources are scarce. After a brief introduction to the topic, audience members
will be presented with a series of cases involving difficult resource allocation
decisions. They will be polled to determine which patients they would choose
to receive a resource, and what factors influenced their decisions. This exercise
will serve as a springboard to discussing two key questions: who should make
allocation decisions and what ethical principles or frameworks should guide
the process? Controversy exists over who should be in charge of resource
25
allocation decisions. Ideally, providers should not serve dual roles as caregivers
and resource stewards, yet providers must be morally prepared for times when
by necessity, they must do both. Controversy also exists over what ethical
frameworks should be used to guide policy and practice. Utilitarian plans strive
to achieve the greatest good for the greatest number, but they vary greatly
in their implementation. Egalitarian plans focus on fairness, and are more
consistent with the ethical principles that guide our daily clinical practice. The
question of whether a new framework for “disaster-ethics” is needed, will be
discussed. The session will conclude with the generation of an educational and
research agenda.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Critically analyze factors that may influence their resource allocation decisions
2) Determine who (ideally) should make resource allocation decisions
3) Understand different ethical frameworks for resource allocation during
disasters.

Defining the Emergency Care Health Services and Policy
Research Agenda in the Era of National Health Reform
DS122 • Sheraton 4
Session Time: Wednesday, May 9, 2012 - 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Emergency medicine sits at the cross roads of the outpatient and inpatient
arenas of the US health care system. The contemporary emergency department
has seen huge growth in patient visit volumes, rising concerns with crowding
compounded by the practice of boarding, and mounting pressure to contain
costs and deliver quality care even as large numbers of EDs have closed. New
quality measures and national health policy initiatives are increasingly involving
emergency care, setting the stage for the exploration of never previously
considered investigations. Emergency care health services research is therefore
at the forefront of policy relevant solutions for US health care. Despite this reality,
well publicized health policy initiatives from readmissions reduction efforts
to the development of accountable care organizations and health insurance
expansion—each with unique relevance to emergency care—have largely
been explored from non-emergency frameworks in national discussions. Policy
makers and the public also continue to view the role of emergency care from
perspectives that are often inconsistent with the evidence. For these reasons
health services research in emergency medicine is due for investment and
expansion. The objective of this didactic is to:
1. Explore the agenda for emergency medicine health services research with a
focus on policy relevant questions, 2. inspire the next set of research questions
and a new generation of emergency medicine investigators, and 3. Suggest the
skills and capabilities necessary to acquire and develop in order to become a
successful investigator.
Objectives: At the completion of the session, participants should be able to
understand issues in health services and policy relevant research in emergency
medicine, specifically:
1) Describe current trends in emergency medicine that lend itself to policy
relevant research
2) Define health services research in emergency medicine
3) Consolidate the skills necessary to become successful in health services
research
4) Describe how to effectively disseminate research findings to have a policy
impact.

Engineering Innovation: Forming Collaborations to Bring
Operations, Design, and Engineering in to your Department
DS160 • Chicago 7
Session Time: Wednesday, May 9, 2012 - 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Research in engineering is distinct from other approaches to research in that
it is goal driven rather than hypothesis driven and is characterized by the
use of technical and mathematical techniques. From architectural design
to optimization of staffing and even development of novel devices, most
emergency departments are “doing” engineering research as a part of dayto-day operations. Many of these problems have a significant technical
underpinning in other fields. Solving these problems is necessary to our
practice. Identifying problems that would benefit from a more sophisticated
approach, identifying appropriate technical collaborators, and finding routes to
academic productivity are essential to improving our solutions to these diverse
problems. This panel discussion will feature presenters who work in several of
technical fields who will share their experiences. A framework for the scope of
potential collaborations based on experiences working with academic faculty
will be presented. Collaborations with engineers will be discussed highlighting
development of educational simulation devices. Other collaborations leading
to commercialization of novel devices will also be discussed. The complex
relationship between care processes, design of the built environment, and
patient safety will also be considered.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Identify current problems within their own emergency department that
might be amenable to engineering approaches
2) Develop models for operationalizing engineering opportunities
3) Recognize potential funding and publication opportunities.

Jelly on the Belly:
Cutting Edge Pediatric Ultrasound Applications
DS135 • Sheraton 5
Session Time: Wednesday, May 9, 2012 - 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
While the average academic clinician is aware of the positive impact of bedside
ultrasound on the care of adult emergency patients, many might not be familiar
with its potential to facilitate care in the pediatric population. Over the last
decade, a number of studies have been published describing various pediatric
emergency bedside ultrasound applications. Many of them can be easily
learned by the physician sonographer with basic ultrasound skills. This session is
designed to familiarize the participants with these state-of-the-art applications.
Specifically, the speakers will discuss how to acquire the ultrasound images,
explain typical image findings, and discuss how to incorporate such knowledge
into emergency department practice. Limitations, gaps and voids in the current
literature will also be discussed to encourage further investigations by aspiring
researchers. Time will be available after each lecture for brief questions from the
audience. This session will consist of three separate presentations on pediatric
bedside ultrasound applications in the emergency department. 1. Evaluation
for abdominal emergencies: appendicitis, intussusception, and pyloric stenosis,
2. Procedural applications: localization of abscess, peripheral IV insertion,
ultrasound-assisted lumbar puncture, 3. Musculoskeletal applications:
evaluation for fracture and hip effusion.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Recognize the typical appearance of pediatric appendicitis, intussusception,
and pyloric stenosis on ultrasound
Describe the steps to perform ultrasound assisted abscess localization,
2) peripheral IV insertion and lumbar puncture
3) Evaluate for suspected pathology like fracture and hip effusion in the
pediatric population
4) Cite the current literature on all of the above pediatric bedside ultrasound
applications in the emergency department setting, and identify areas in
need of further research.

Training the Trainers Who Train: A Workshop for Those Who
Teach Emergency Medicine Elsewhere in the World
DS120 • Chicago 8
Session Time: Wednesday, May 9, 2012 - 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
There are now over 30 International / Global Emergency Medicine (EM) fellowship
programs in the United States alone, and many EM faculty and residents are
involved in international collaborations. Many times, these collaborations lead
emergency physicians (EPs) to travel to other countries in order to train the
physicians working there. One common model used is to “Train the Trainers”.
In this model, experienced EPs from countries with a more mature system for
emergency care teach physician and nurse leaders in countries with “underdeveloped” and “developing” systems of national EM development to then
become the “trainers” of other clinicians who provide emergent / urgent care in
their home country. Although the traveling physicians are usually experienced
in both the practice of EM, many of them have not been trained how to teach.
Furthermore, the skills needed to teach physicians in one’s home country are
different from the skills needed to train physicians in a different system. In this
session, nationally-recognized expert teachers in EM will dialog with experts in
International / Global EM to facilitate a session instructive for anyone teaching
EM in the United States or abroad.
Objectives: At the completion of this session the participant should be able to:
1) Devise a successful “Train-the-Trainers” program;
2) Formulate effective teaching methodologies/strategies;
3) Recommend effective tools/methods for feedback; and
4) Discuss strategies for applying objectives # 1-3 in varying cultural and resource settings.

The Nadir of Clinical Operations Innovation:
Implications for Future Growth
DS123 • Sheraton 4
Session Time: Wednesday, May 9, 2012 - 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
The first time a physician or mid-level provider was placed in triage, it was
ground-breaking. The first time we used clinical practice guidelines and created
order sets, it seemed amazing. The first time we created a rapid-treat area in our
emergency department, we smiled at our success. Different versions of these
techniques have been applied at various emergency departments throughout
the country, be they academic or community sites. Every day it seems as if
there is something else on the horizon even though the reality is much starker.
Eventually, short of new technology and treatment modalities, there will be
nothing else left to employ. But what happens when there are no more ideas,
no more room for improvement, no more opportunities to advance the cause
of the patient experience from a throughput perspective without sacrificing
quality and safety? Are we there now? From an innovation standpoint, have we
reached our process flow peak? A panel of four emergency medicine leaders
in clinical operations will explore the possibility that at least in the near term
there is no more change forthcoming. They will briefly analyze the current state
of process flow, including the latest modalities, and then debate the future
of throughput innovation. This session is not meant to be one focusing on
actual processes, but rather one of a philosophical nature, talking to our core
as physicians who continually seek the latest development. A short question
and answer period will follow at the end of the panel presentation to allow for
audience participation.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, the participants should be able
to:
1) Identify the inherent problems that arise when the emergency department is
expected to constantly transform itself to meet certain key metrics.
escribe the conflict between “change for change” sake and true revolution
2) D
in operational process improvements.
3) Analyze the possibility that ED leadership has reached an end-point as it
pertains to the evolution of clinical operations innovation.

The Future Role of Emergency Physicians in Trauma:
A New Category of Trauma Specialists?
DS205• Sheraton 5
Session Time: Wednesday, May 9, 2012 - 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Emergency physicians are integral to the treatment of, research around, and
teaching about patients requiring advanced trauma care. As the treatment of
these patients becomes more technology driven and less operative (and in
light of the limited availability of specialized trauma surgeons) the specialty
of Emergency Medicine is uniquely positioned to develop physicians who can
oversee both the ED and inpatient care of trauma patients. The discussions will
include: The overview of current needs in trauma surgery with the rational and
motivation to train EPs alongside surgeons, how graduates have fared in critical
care and trauma services with focus on the future plans for fellowships to train
EP in trauma critical care, and the clinical, political and logistical challenges of
crossing departments and combining disciplines.
Objectives: At the conclusion of this course, attendees should be able to:
1) Analyze the current state of trauma surgery work force shortage
2) Be familiarized with the current EM fellowship opportunities relating to
trauma surgery and what unique options are currently being practiced at
several sites
3) Appraise the knowledge of political, clinical and logistical challenges of EPs
involvement in trauma past the emergency department as well as future
educational and research opportunities to explore their benefits.

Real World Evidence-Based Diagnostics:
The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly
DS118 • Chicago 7
Session Time: Wednesday, May 9, 2012 - 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
This lecture will use real examples from the emergency medicine literature.
We will review multiple studies of diagnostic tests and show how the research
data can be (but often are not) presented to maximize the information to
be gained from the test. We will also discuss various common but underrecognized biases and how they affect results. We will discuss both reading and
preparing systematic reviews of diagnostic test accuracy. After this course, you
will understand (1) the principles of diagnostic test assessment, including the
calculation and use of interval likelihood ratios and the relationship between
these likelihood ratios and the ROC curve (2) how to go beyond the area
under the curve to get the most out of published ROC curves (3) recognize
underappreciated flaws, biases, and limitations in studies of diagnostic tests (4)
how to find, use, and author emergency medicine relevant systematic reviews
of diagnostic test accuracy, including SROC curves. The session will also discuss
the Academic Emergency Medicine “Evidence-Based Diagnostics” paper on
27
diagnosing septic arthritis, and possibly the papers on diagnosing serious
closed head injury, and gonorrhea.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should:
1) Understand the calculation and use of likelihood ratios, both for dichotomous
and multi-level tests.
2) Critically read a paper on diagnosis, identifying errors in the calculation or use
of likelihood ratios and potential biases in their estimation.
3) Recognize errors in the studies of others to avoid these errors in their own
studies.
4) Discuss with other experienced clinicians the application of study results to
real-world diagnostic problems.
5) Evaluate and, to some extent, perform systematic reviews of diagnostic test
accuracy.

Is Hypothermia the First Broad Spectrum Therapy for the
Syndrome if Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury?
DS152 • Sheraton 5
Session Time: Wednesday, May 09, 2012 - 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
After restoration of perfusion in the post-arrest patient, effective treatment
of the inflammatory, apoptotic, and disordered remodeling that results from
ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) may become the most important component
of acute care medicine in disease states such as stroke, myocardial infarction,
and cardiac arrest. IRI is protean in its components, likely including free radical
and reactive oxygen species, disordered vasculature, inflammatory injury,
programmed cell death, and pathologic remodeling among others. IRI is not
limited to the thromboembolic events of classic organ infarction, and is likely
a part of all acute organ threatening processes. The cascade nature of IRI has
defeated the single molecular target pharmacologic model, and failed therapies
for entities such as cardiac arrest and stroke have been numerous. The last few
years has seen a broad amount of literature reporting laboratory and empirical
efficacy for hypothermia applied at, or shortly after, reperfusion. If it is found to
be effective, it may be secondary to the fortuitous circumstance that the sum
of the positive effects is greater than the toxicities. This lecture will review the
molecular biology and pathophysiology of ischemia-reperfusion, including
the known effects of hypothermia on those pathways and the pre-clinical and
clinical evidence of efficacy. Specific clinical applications of hypothermia’s

Floodlighting the Hidden Threat of Unconscious Bias
DS170• Chicago 8
Session Time: Thursday, May 10, 2012 - 9:00 am - 10:00 am
As its names implies, unconscious bias (UB) flies under the radar and, if
not understood and openly addressed, can adversely impair the decision
making of individuals, regardless of their gender or background, involved in
evaluating, hiring, and advancing faculty. This session will focus on the role of
28
UB in the work place. Important literature will be reviewed on how UB impacts:
writing letters of recommendation; curriculum vitae evaluation; hiring and
promotion; and selection for committees and other leadership roles. Finally,
this session will provide effective strategies to identify and successfully
address UB so that institutions can move their best talent forward. The session
will be focused on UB and gender but many of the concepts discussed will
be readily transferable to other areas impacting diversity such as age, race,
economic class and sexual orientation.
Objectives: Upon completion of the session, participants should be able to:
1) Describe the research exposing the impact of UB in hiring and advancing
faculty,
2) Identify impediments to achieving gender diversity in academic emergency
medicine,
3) Utilize effective techniques to address and reduce UB.

Getting the Story: How to Teach Residents and Medical
Students Essential Narrative Tools
DS134 • Sheraton 5
Session Time: Thursday, May 10, 2012 - 10:00 am - 11:00 am
The crux of emergency medicine (EM) practice depends on listening to stories
– the narrative - from emergency department (ED) patients. Medical students
and resident physicians are not only expected to get the story right, but must
develop the skills to respond efficiently, accurately, and compassionately. Often
in the ED, a “pressured listener” tries to understand a “pressured storyteller.”
This chaotic environment can be considered a narrative disaster zone. Academic
emergency physicians learn to some extent through experience how to best
guide the narrative and “get the story” from patients, but do not necessarily
know how to impart these skills to more novice providers. Tools from literature
and creative writing can be very useful in becoming a more skilled, curious
and astute pressured listener. In this session, experts in narrative, will dissect
stories and demonstrate how literary elements like character, desire and
conflict, language and dialogue, voice and point of view, narrative arcs,
metaphor, mystery and meaning operate in our daily EM practice, and how
a deeper understanding of these elements promotes more attuned clinical
and emotional responses to an increasingly diverse patient population with
complex needs. Often, patients are labeled as “difficult” when the truth is that
only their stories are difficult.
Objectives: At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
1) Describe key elements of stories, and how to teach these elements to trainees.
2) Implement narrative tools that foster communication, facilitate sensitivity,
and help resolve moral dilemmas.
3) Classify barriers to narrative understanding in EM and develop flexible
strategies for improvement.
4) Develop novel modes for educating residents, medical students and
attending physicians.

Social Media and the Academic Physician
DS115 • Chicago 7
Session Time: Thursday, May 10, 2012 - 9:00 am - 10:30 am
The internet has become a ubiquitous presence in the lives of academic
physicians, and patients. Recently there has been an explosion in usergenerated content and information in the form of Social Media. As utilization
grows, physician groups and organizations have moved to create guidelines
for online professionalism, in an effort to help doctors and students protect
their “digital footprint.” Tools for Web 2.0 Social Media endeavors range from
well known such as Facebook and Twitter, to lesser known and newer apps.
In the field of academic Emergency Medicine, these tools can be used to add
value to education, research, and collaboration. This didactic will review online
professionalism guidelines and protecting your digital footprint. Social Media
tools and their use will be reviewed, with examples of research publications that
make use of these tools. Finally the discussion will focus on recommendations
for online engagement and collaboration. In keeping with the theme of the
didactic information and important points and questions from attendees will
be broadcast via Twitter with the hashtag #SAEM12 and displayed with the
presentation.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, the participants should be able to:
1) Define and understand online professionalism guidelines.
2) Describe Social Media tools and their basic use.
3) Choose recommendations for online engagement with users.
4) Synthesize current research in Social Media and prepare for future directions.

2012 Updates in Gender-Specific Emergency Care
DS112 • Chicago 8
Session Time: Thursday, May 10, 2012 - 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Current research indicates there are significant physiologic differences between
men and women that may have important clinical implications in the emergency
care of patients. However, a gap persists between the research demonstrating
gender differences in disease presentations, responses to treatment, and
clinical outcomes and the knowledge and clinical practice of physicians. This
State of the Art Presentation will review 8 clinical topics, covering 7 organ
systems, applying the “gender lens” as it relates to the practice of emergency
medicine. Topics will include Cardiovascular, Pulmonary, Gastrointestinal,
Neurology, Pharmacology, Critical Care, Injury and Trauma, Orthopedics, and an
updated look at Obstetrics and Gynecology. We will provide this overview using
the “Pecha-Kucha” style of presentation, in which speakers are limited to brief
(5 or 6 minute) talks that are concise and well-rehearsed. Pecha-Kucha, or “chitchats” have become a world-wide phenomenon for their ability to maintain
listener engagement through dynamic, fast-paced presentations. A series of
“lightning” teaching rounds, Pecha-Kucha will enable us to represent the broad
range of topics for which consideration of gender is key to good emergency
medicine in a relatively short amount of time, taking advantage of the average
learner’s brief attention span.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Describe concrete examples of physiologic gender differences with significant
implications for the clinical practice of Emergency Medicine, and
2) Describe examples of a gender-specific approach to several common disease
entities.

Educational Scholarship: Creating and Publishing Academic
Products from your Teaching
DS126 • Chicago 7
Session Time: Thursday, May 10, 2012 - 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Many academic emergency physicians in SAEM have significant professional
involvement in teaching activities, curriculum development, production of
educational resources, and other academic endeavors. The recognition that
scholarship encompasses a much wider range of academic activities than
the traditional research paradigm has increased opportunities for faculty to
be recognized by local promotion and tenure committees for their work as
educators. This session will teach participants about Boyer’s Model of Scholarship,
with a focus on the scholarship of teaching. The process of peer review, public
dissemination, and the creation of a platform for further development will be
discussed as important components for faculty to focus on when creating academic
products. Areas where opportunities exist for scholarship will be highlighted,
with an emphasis on the creation of scholarship from teaching activities that
faculty are already doing. Locations for the peer review and dissemination of
educational materials will be presented, including traditional print journals
such as Academic Emergency Medicine, various open-access publications, and
electronic publication repositories. The process for submission, peer-review,
and publication of educational materials to electronic repositories, including the
AAMC MedEdPORTAL, will be described. Course attendees will participate in a
brainstorming workshop activity where faculty will collaborate and share ideas
for creating scholarly materials based on current teaching activities.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Identify scholarly products that can be produced from teaching activities.
2) Categorize the four different types of scholarship as presented in Boyer’s
model.
3) Examine the resources available for peer review and publication of
educational materials.
4) Produce a written series of steps to accomplish the publication of an academic
product based on current teaching activities.
5) Review emergency medicine educational resources that have been peerreviewed and published in publicly available electronic repositories.

Beyond Evidence Based Medicine:
Educational Strategies to Promote Knowledge Translation in
Graduate Medical Education
DS121 • Sheraton 4
Session Time: Thursday, May 10, 2012 - 10:30 am - 12:00 am
While evidence-based medicine skills are usually the focus of journal club and
didactic teaching within graduate medical education, there is a pressing need
to develop new competencies that focus on the integration of knowledge from
clinical research and implementation science into practice at both the individual
and system level. Using a brief didactic presentation followed by a facilitated
round table discussion, this session will provide attendees with accessible
and replicable educational strategies to enhance residents’ incorporation of
evidence-based principles and knowledge translation (i.e. the scientifically
sound and systematic incorporation of evidence into clinical practice) at the
learner, department, and systems level. We will review three examples of
emergency medicine specific knowledge translation curricula that have been
employed for several years resulting in numerous teaching awards and peerreviewed publications. We will also discuss common barriers to initiating and
sustaining knowledge translation programs within graduate medical education
programs while offering actionable solutions to these obstacles. Each
participant will be provided with an array of resources to facilitate successful
uptake of these curricula within their institutions.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Outline complementary approaches for teaching implementation science to
residents at the individual learner, department, and systems level
2) Identify common resident and faculty barriers to these curricula along with
previously successful solutions to these obstacles.

Making Research Matter to our Patients: Implementation
Science, the Next Frontier
DS145 • Ontario Room
Session Time: Thursday, May 10, 2012 10:30 am - 12:00 p m
This session will build on key concepts from the well received 2011 Didactic: Role of Research in
Practice Change. This didactic will continue the discussion of the interplay between research and
the external forces that influence practice change, focusing on the evolving field of implementation
science. Implementation science seeks to understand how to best translate research findings into
clinical practice, primarily working in the late stage of the translational continuum; focus is critical
evaluation of facilitators and barriers associated with translating proven intervention into practice
while retaining interventional fidelity. Topics to be covered include critical analysis of the principles
and optimal evaluative methods for implementation science research using 2 cases studies as example;
understanding training requirements and opportunities in implementation research; and developing
a competitive portfolio and research plan. Attention will also be paid to federally funded, versus
industry funded research and challenges associated with transitioning implementation from academic
to nonacademic settings. Following a brief focused introduction (overview of the conceptual evolution
of this field and range of research opportunities), Speakers will give examples of EM researchers (one
clinical one public health) that have conducted research in this arena and have competed for NIH and/or
industry funding in order to provide insights into the methods and process of designing and conducting
implementation research. There will also be a NIH and industry panel discussing opportunities and
challenges (to include program officers from NIH - e.g. NCATS, NIMH, NHLBI) and industry.
Objectives: At the end of this session, the participant should be able to:
1) U nderstand differences between demonstration projects, operational research, and implementation
research.
2) U nderstand study design, as well as facilitators and barriers to implementation research.
3) Understand role of regulation in practice change and implementation research.
4) U nderstand local and national training opportunities for implementation research.
5) Identify mechanisms (NIH institutes and industry) that support implementation science in
emergency medicine.

Surviving Sepsis Campaign 2012: An Update on
Recommendations for Emergency Medicine
DS114 • Sheraton 5
Session Time: Thursday, May 10, 2012 - 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC) consensus guidelines for the treatment
of severe sepsis and septic shock are widely regarded as the most pertinent
recommendations for the emergent management of sepsis. First published
in 2004, the most recent revision to be released in 2012 contains revised
recommendations, many of which are important for emergency physicians
to completely understand. This session will be moderated by the SAEM
representative to the SSC 2012 writing group who will present an overview of
the process of SSC recommendation process followed by a summary of the new
recommendations pertinent to emergency medicine. The course faculty will
then provide an in-depth exploration of the pertinent literature supporting the
new recommendations.

Educating and Assessing “In-Training” Physicians in the Finer
Skills of Communication: Handoffs and Consultations
DS149 • Sheraton 4
Session Time: Thursday, May 10, 2012 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
As reported in 2005 by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare
Organizations, communication was the leading root cause of sentinel events in
all categories! This session will focus on education and assessment techniques for
resident and medical student communication skills, with particular attention to
hand-offs and consultations. Presenters will discuss why hand-offs and consults
are becoming more important patient-safety related issues each year with
new work-hour requirements and ACGME mandated directives. Specifically,
an interactive discussion about various handoff tools will occur to take a more
in-depth look at a curricular tool developed by and for Emergency Physicians.
There will be a discussion of the critical aspects of the consultation and handoff
process. Following, there will be a review of educational strategies, based in
adult learning theory, to engage residents and students in the process such as
didactic teaching, audio and video files, the use of standardized consultants/
physicians and other simulated scenarios. The principles of how to motivate
learners, make these tools “stick,” and have residents/students incorporate
these communication tools into every day practice will also occur. The session
will conclude with a “how to” guide for core competency assessments using
existing consultation and handoff tools.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to:
1. Understand the impact of ineffective and inefficient handoffs and
consultations in the Emergency Department,
2. Critique frameworks for handoffs and consultations within Emergency
Medicine,
3. Identify a framework for teaching medical students and residents handoff
and communication skills,
4. Appraise and utilize a handoff and consultation taxonomy within Emergency

Geriatric Emergency Departments:
Challenges and Opportunities for Clinicians and Researchers
DS195 Ontario Room
Session Time: Thursday, May 10, 2012 - 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Over the past 5 years, geriatric emergency departments (EDs) have emerged
as a means to address the unique needs of older ED patients. Characteristics
of these geriatric EDs are varied but include additional room space to
accommodate family members and care providers, additional access to
personnel such as social workers and pharmacists, and specific infrastructure
to facilitate movement and prevent falls. The objectives of these interventions
include: 1) providing an optimal environment for the assessment and treatment
of older ED patients; 2) improving patient safety; 3) increasing patient and family
satisfaction with the ED visit; 4) reducing return visits and re-admissions; and
5) minimizing ED length of stay. Unfortunately, little is known about how the
various components or combinations of components of care currently being
implemented in geriatric EDs impact these outcomes. This session will discuss:
1) Characteristics of existing geriatric EDs and efforts to date to study these EDs;
2) Strategies for integrating research into a geriatric care environment; and
3) Some of the challenges of conducting this researching including selecting
comparison populations, defining the intervention, and selecting outcomes.
Objectives: By the close of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Characterize current geriatric EDs,
2) Describe the components of successful programmatic research,
3) Discuss the challenges of implementing programmatic research to study the
impact of geriatric EDs.

Requirements
DS137 • Sheraton 4
Session Time: Thursday, May 10, 2012 - 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The new Web Add requirements and the evolving ABEM Assessment of Practice
Performance requirements mandate a focus on patient safety (PS) and quality
of care metrics. Academic physicians, well skilled in education and research,
are generally not well versed in Emergency Department (ED) operations and
Quality Improvement (QI). Administrators, often not well versed in teaching and
research as well, often set metrics, which are not evidence based or clinically
effective. In this pro-active panel discussion, one discussant will present the
current ACGME oversight guidelines and two discussants will present the
expert consensus on creating goals and developing curriculum and research
parameters to evaluate QI benchmarks with a specific focus on applying
evidence and the science of education to ED clinical operations. The last portion
of the session will be devoted to small group think tanks on the three aspects of
QI/PS curriculum: creating, teaching, and evaluating.
Objectives: At the completion of the session, participants will be able to:
1) Describe the importance of QI/PS in today’s healthcare environment;
2) Review the new ACGME oversight guidelines (Web Adds, PBL/I PIF Questions,
Chapter 11-15, ACMGE 2011 Duty Hour Standards);
3) Utilize tools to create a QI/PS educational and research curriculum.

reimbursement. Additionally, the session will offer medical student elective
curriculum, elective structure, and elective locations. Further, the learning
theory behind and practice tactics of the established teaching and learning
modalities of scenario-based education, small group problem solving, and
in situ simulations with “standardized patients” will be offered. Wilderness
medicine curriculum and WM cases in high fidelity simulations will be discussed
as they relate to overall EM education. The role of the resident in WM student
education will also be discussed. Lastly, the differences between medical
student and resident electives curriculum will be described. The unique
educational needs, leadership mentoring, and teaching instruction of residents
in relation to their curriculum will be described. The course will also cover
methods of evaluation for a Wilderness Medicine rotation, including objective
and subjective evaluation tools for all aspects of a WM rotation. Differences in
student vs. resident evaluation techniques will be addressed. The course will
also discuss overall course/elective evaluations. A roadmap for EM educators
31
will be developed to mature a program, and how such a strategy can create
educational and professional opportunities for students, residents, faculty, and
the department as a whole.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Understand the relevance of wilderness medicine training within a medical
university or emergency department,

Mastering Milestones - Achieving Outcomes in Education
The 2009 NIH Roundtables on Emergency Research identified strategic
goals for enhancing the national EM research infrastructure and improving
collaboration between EM researchers and the NIH. Major priorities in these
discussions included the establishment of EM clinical research networks and
research training programs; expansion of EM-specific initiatives within existing
NIH institutes; and the integration of emergency investigators into federal
grant review and research advisory roles. Three years after the roundtables,
this didactic will be an update on our progress: What have we accomplished?
Which groups of investigators have been particularly successful in advancing
their research agenda? What lessons can we learn from them, and which
other emergency research domains can benefit most from those lessons? Our
moderator and panelists, all of whom served on the original roundtables, will
provide insight into these questions and participate in an interactive discussion
with audience members on how to promote greater faculty engagement in our
federal research agenda. Two products will be produced from this program:
Web content will be developed for faculty with specific instructions on
applying for federal research advisory positions, and a manuscript reviewing
the successes and future direction of the roundtables will be submitted to
Academic Emergency Medicine.
Objectives: At the completion of the session, participants should be able to:
1) Evaluate progress in advancing the science of emergency care since the 2009
NIH Emergency Care Research Roundtables.
2) Identify components of the national EM research agenda needing further
development, including faculty participation in federal research advisory
roles.
3) Evaluate roles in federal research agencies that would allow research for
emergency physicians, such as NIH grant review, study section participation,
and institute advisory councils.

Increasingly educators are asked for goals and outcomes measurements to
assure that education in a specific area or task has been adequate. Whether
it is procedural competency, medical knowledge, transitions of care,
communication, or professionalism we need to be able to prove that our learners
have achieved the goals set before them. These “milestone measurements”
offer educators the opportunity to target strengths and weaknesses of learners
and develop individualized improvement plans. In addition, it allows the
educator to assess the effectiveness of education at a systems level. However,
developing this system can be an intimidating task. This session will describe
how to develop a process that will work for your group of learners including

Principles of Medical Photography and the Use of Clinical
Images in Medical Education
DS132 • Sheraton 5
Session Time: Friday, May 11, 2012 - 8:00 am - 9:30 am
Medical photography is a powerful tool that can establish permanence of clinical
teaching opportunities. In order to maximize the sharing experience and learning
from clinical photographs, the educator must obtain the highest possible quality
medical images. This session consists of a series of short lectures addressing a)
the essential equipment needed to produce excellent clinical images, b) the
fundamentals of medical photography including explanations of exposure,
lighting, establishment of view, reproduction ratios, management of distortion,
c) the use of clinical images to augment teaching, and d) clinical applications of
medical photography. Following the lecture segment, the faculty will teach a
hands-on workshop so that participants can practice newly learned techniques.
During the workshop, the faculty will use digital SLR cameras and projection
equipment to demonstrate how proper technique generates high quality
images as well as how improper technique may result in poorer quality images.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own personal digital SLR cameras, but
cameras will be provided during the workshop for the use of the audience.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Describe the fundamentals of medical photography including appropriate
equipment, proper photographic techniques for maximum image quality,
the use of medical imaging in teaching and clinical applications,
2) Utilize these newly learned photographic techniques, with hands-on practice.

Prescription Drug Misuse: The Scope of the Problem and the
State of the Research
DS203 • Chicago 9
Session Time: Friday, May 11, 2012 - 9:00 am - 10:30 am
Pharmaceutical misuse, now reaching epidemic proportions, has become a
public health crisis in the United States. The Emergency Department (ED) plays
a central role in this epidemic: not only is the ED a source of drugs that may be
diverted to illicit use, it is also a site where consequences from prescription drug
misuse are often treated. The ED is, therefore, an excellent venue for studying
prescription drug misuse, but future directions for research investigations may
not be clear to emergency physicians who do not engage in toxicology or injury
prevention research. This course will describe the epidemiology of prescription
drug misuse, assess the relationship between prescribing patterns and
mortality, and describe poorly-understood phenomena such as opioid-induced
hyperalgesia and delayed respiratory depression. Furthermore, we will examine
the impact of departmental and individual prescribing habits on patient/
provider satisfaction as well as patient morbidity and mortality. Lastly, our
speakers will discuss the landscape and priorities for funding of pharmaceutical
misuse research through NIDA and the NIH over the next 5-10 years.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Appreciate the extent and impact of prescription drug misuse in the United
States and
2) Appreciate new research questions and the funding potential and priorities
of NIDA and the NIH.

NHLBI K12 Research Career Development Programs in
Emergency Medicine Research
DS110 • Chicago 9
Session Time: Friday, May 11, 2012 - 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
In July 2011 the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) funded
six institutional research career development (K12) awards to promote
multidisciplinary clinical research training programs in emergency medicine.
These programs are designed to prepare clinician-scientists for independent
research careers and academic leadership roles in Emergency Medicine. This
five year, $21 million award represents a major opportunity for junior emergency
medicine researchers to obtain NIH funded, mentored research career training.
The panel will include a moderator, the NHLBI K12 program officer, and a
member from each of the six K12 award programs. The NHLBI program officer
will discuss the development of the NHLBI EM K12 program as well as the
overall design of the program including candidate eligibility criteria and the
goals for the program/program graduates. Following the K12 program officer’s
presentation, members from each program will provide a brief description of
their respective programs. These presentations will highlight the strengths and
unique attributes of each individual program, the types of candidates they are
targeting, and the application process.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to
1) Describe the goals of the NHLBI K12 program,
2) State K12 candidate eligibility,

Peer to Peer Feedback:
Making it Meaningful and Delivering it with Grace
DS175 • Sheraton 5
Session Time: Friday, May 11, 2012 - 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
It is unarguable that feedback is crucial to building expertise and reaching
33
maximum performance in the workplace. While educators view providing
feedback as a crucial step towards improving learner performance, less is
understood about how to provide effective feedback to peers. Peer-to-peer
feedback (at both a faculty-faculty and resident-resident level) is important in
forming a 360-degree evaluation. Building on last year’s workshop focused on
teacher-learner interaction, this year’s workshop looks at the advanced skill of
providing feedback to peers, including the special circumstance of when the
peer also functions as a supervisor. We will draw upon seminal articles in the
feedback literature to both enable the participant to understand feedback
from the receiver’s perspective, and empower participants to employ practical
strategies to improve real-time feedback.
Objectives: At the end of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Develop a plan to incorporate evidence from the feedback literature into
their clinical teaching practice,
2) Outline steps required to provide effective feedback given the new
conceptual framework,
3) Apply principles of feedback specific to peer and supervisor feedback.

Pediatric Care in Emergency Medicine:
Knowledge in Translation
DS154 • Chicago 10
Session Time: Friday, May 11, 2012 - 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Emergency medicine (EM) residents continue to express discomfort over care
for pediatric patients, both during training, and after entering the workforce,
despite focused pediatric emergency medicine (PEM) education. The
challenges of educating EM residents during training are many, including the
lack of exposure to critically ill children, the limited exposure and volume, and
the seasonal variability of pediatric illness. Equally challenging is the continued
incorporation of current evidence into the general emergency medicine
community, after completion of training. Although advances in PEM care have
been made in recent years, implementation of this evidence has remained a
challenge. Consequently, evidence-based medicine (EBM) and knowledge
translation (KT) efforts have gained increased attention in the field of PEM.
In this session, the participants will describe two techniques of knowledge
translation, including programmatic methods focused on resident trainees, and
specific methods of implementation of evidence-based practice aimed towards
general EM practitioners. In addition, descriptions of existing and proposed KT
programs, using community based in-person education modules and real-time
clinical decision support tools will be included. Audience participation will be
solicited along with an open-discussion among presenters and participants
following the session.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Recognize the potential for EBM and KT techniques to enhance dissemination
of evidence-based practice to the general ED community, and
2) Analyze current and future methods of KT.

Opportunities to Broaden the Role of EMS
DS157 • Missouri Room
Session Time: Friday, May 11, 2012 - 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Emergency Medical Services (EMS) systems predominantly offer a one size fits
all approach of providing ambulance responses and subsequent transports
to an emergency room for all 9-1-1 calls. There are many instances when this
approach may neither be the best solution for the patient, nor for our high cost,
fragmented health system. The EMS community has been interested for a long
time in breaking this mold and becoming a more flexible, patient centered,
clinically integrated health service working with partners in the inpatient and
34
outpatient world. This could provide better care and reduce redundancies and
inefficiencies in the healthcare system. However, few innovations have been
put into general practice largely because of legal constraints and financial
incentives that favor the status quo. Under health reform, and more generally
within the trends in healthcare policy toward greater coordination of care and
efforts at cost-containment, there may be new opportunities available for EMS/
Prehospital Care systems to expand their role beyond emergency care delivery
into the areas of public health and care management to improve the underlying
health of the populations they serve. This session will feature two leaders in the
EMS community who will update us on the latest innovations in the expanded
practice of EMS systems and providers, describe the grander visions for
prehospital care and describe the opportunities available under health reform
that might help us realize these visions.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Describe the limits of the existing prevailing EMS model and the missed
opportunities therein.
2) Outline the financial and legal obstacles to changing that model.
3) Understand the term “community paramedicine.”
4) Critique the grand vision of EMS described by the panelists.
5) Describe the opportunities under health reform for realizing that vision.

More than Just a Hobby:
Building an Academic Career in Global Emergency Medicine
DS101 • Chicago 10
Session Time: Friday, May 11, 2012 - 1:00 pm- 2:30 pm
As the specialty of Emergency Medicine continues to spread around the world,
a growing number of academic emergency physicians have begun to involve
themselves in the realms of global emergency medicine development, research,
and teaching. While academic departments have always found this work
laudable, they have only recently begun to accept global emergency medicine
as a rigorous academic pursuit in its own right. This didactic will cover the
various ways in which emergency physicians can translate their global health
work into “academic currency.” The first portion of the session will be split into
two successive blocks, the first intended for academic emergency physicians
pursuing a “teaching” track and the second intended for those pursuing a
“research” track within their departments. For each track, we will discuss the
challenges involved in pursuing a career in global emergency medicine and
how to overcome those challenges. Specific skills will include a discussion of
how to “sell” the importance and relevance of one’s international work to the
chair and the department, how to fund one’s time and effort abroad, and how
to successfully integrate global health work with the many other responsibilities
of an academic emergency physician. This didactic session will conclude with
a panel discussion on the types of training available to help launch a career
in global emergency medicine, including the relevance of an international
emergency medicine fellowship and tips on what to look for in a fellowship
program.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Discuss the career pathways and training opportunities available in global
emergency medicine.
2) Create a roadmap for developing an academic career in global emergency
medicine that fits their particular interests and needs.
3) Describe specific examples of “academic currency.”
4) Cite specific challenges they are likely to face in building a career in global
emergency medicine and ways to overcome them.

Adaptive Designs for Clinical Trials
DS190 • Missouri Room
Session Time: Friday, May 11, 2012 - 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Our discussion of adaptive clinical trials will focus on a very specific class of
flexible designs. Our use of the term adaptive refers to trials which make use
of accumulating information from enrolled subjects to make changes in the
conduct of the ongoing trial. Importantly, all of these changes are prospectively
planned using extensive numerical simulation and sensitivity analyses. These
designs can help the trial investigators concurrently accomplish important
scientific and medical goals. Recent advances in simulation techniques via
advances in modern computing power have made these designs increasingly
feasible. In this session we will identify situations where specific types of
adaptive clinical trial designs could be useful. In addition, we will identify
situations in which adaptive designs may not be as useful or may even be less
efficient. Adaptive trials offer potential benefits in improving trial efficiency
(smaller trials which are more likely to be successful) that must be balanced
against the additional complexities (extensive up-front simulation work and
the need to rapidly incorporate accumulating data from participants within the
on-going trial). We will provide an overview of the key characteristics of highquality adaptive clinical trial designs. Then, the panel discussion will focus on
lessons learned from the trial design process and the attendee will learn about
potential methods to enhance the efficiency of trial design.
We use “adaptive clinical trials” to refer to trials which make use of accumulating
information from enrolled subjects to make changes in the conduct of
an ongoing trial. These designs are valuable because they do not require
investigators to make as many assumptions ahead of time and can provide
more flexibility than traditional designs while still protecting against bias and
statistical error. Importantly, this flexibility must be prospectively planned using
extensive numerical simulation and sensitivity analyses. Recent advances in
simulation techniques and the widespread availability of increased computing
power have made these designs increasingly feasible and accessible.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, the participant should be able to:
1) describe the taxonomy of adaptive clinical trial designs and areas where such
designs may be useful,
2) understand the advantages of using numerical simulation in clinical trial
design and will be motivated to use these methods, and
3) anticipate potential process issues within trial or research design and use best
practices to maximize the efficiency of the process

Emergency Care Research Opportunities with the Center for
Medicare and Medicaid Innovation
DS192 • Sheraton 4
Session Time: Saturday, May 12, 2012 - 8:00 am - 9:00 am
In the aftermath of health care reform, emergency medicine and emergency
department visits have received a great deal of scrutiny. As federal and state
governments work to implement the health care reform, a variety of changes
to the health care delivery system loom. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid
Innovation (CMMI) with a $10 billion appropriation will be responsible for
testing a variety of health care delivery models over the coming years. It will be
important to understand opportunities for emergency medicine to influence
the discourse through research. This session will review past and current
initiatives coming from CMMI and their implications for emergency medicine. In
addition, we will discuss opportunities for the emergency medicine community
to engage with our federal partners and influence future work. Both of the
speakers have spent time working with CMMI and will share their experiences
and perspectives.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Define the role and mission of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid
Innovation (CMMI),
2) Identify current CMMI projects which will influence emergency care,
3) Describe opportunities for emergency medicine research in-line with CMMI
activities.

Perfecting Procedural Skills:
Applications of Learning Theory for Educators
DS169 • Chicago 10
Session Time: Saturday, May 12, 2012 - 8:00 am - 9:30 am
Procedural skills involve a complex combination of cognitive decisionmaking and technical skills that need sufficient time for learning and practice
in order for the learner to attain mastery. Increasing restrictions on resident
work hours and decreasing resident exposure to opportunities for learning
important procedural skills make it imperative that educators provide a
learning environment that best fosters development of these skills in trainees.
An introductory lecture will introduce concepts of learning theory as it applies
to the development of procedural or psychomotor skills. These concepts
include 1) general adult learning theory, 2) the stages of learning psychomotor
skills, 3) conditions of practice, such as massed vs. distributed practice, 4)
deliberate practice (Ericsson, 1993), and 5) components of effective feedback.
Next, a standardized four-step method of teaching procedural skills (Walker
and Peyton, 1998) will be demonstrated for a procedural skill essential to the
practice of emergency medicine. Different methods available for teaching
procedures and the evidence for each will be discussed. Specific alternatives
to bedside teaching, such as simulation, task trainers, cadaver and animal labs
will be discussed. A discussion will show how procedural education can be
incorporated into a residency or clerkship curriculum. Participants will then be
divided into small groups. Each group will participate in interactive activities
that involve a variety of simple, procedural skills. Both clinical and non-clinical
procedures will be included to ensure unfamiliarity of some tasks for the
learners. Groups will apply principles learned in the lecture above to develop a
strategy for teaching these skills and then reconvene as a large group to teach
each other the skills. Feedback will be provided from panelists and solicited
from attendees.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Discuss learning theory as it applies to teaching and learning procedural skills
to adult learners.
2) Identify essential components for attaining skill mastery.
3) Develop a plan to incorporate relevant learning theory into their teaching of
procedural skills in both the clinical and laboratory settings.

cognitive theory as a basis for the introduction to alternative and innovative
methods of teaching. During the session, participants will share in handson experiences and demonstrations using alternative methods of teaching
including readiness assessment testing, modified team-based and problembased learning, jig-saw small groups, think-pair-share, 1 minute paper, using
stimuli, role plays, facilitated discussion and “Jeopardy” based assessment. At
the completion of the session, participants will be able to select and employ new
tools specific to their teaching environment as well as gain an understanding of
some of the foundations of cognitive learning theory.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Develop an understanding of some of the foundations of cognitive learning
theory.

DS189 • Sheraton 5
Session Time: Saturday, May 12, 2012 9:30:00 AM - 10:30:00 AM
With so many different priorities in Emergency Medicine, education is often lost
in the process. The purpose of this session will be to lead a discussion on how
to bring education into the spotlight of priorities. The session will be lead by
Department Vice-Chairs and Leaders in Emergency Medicine. The session will
start with brainstorming about how to prioritize education. Then there will
be a panel discussion of 4 model programs: 1) design and implementation of
educational RVUs (eRVUs), 2) use of a scholarship pipeline to encourage faculty
to turn education into scholarship, 3) educational criteria for “citizenship” and
incentive, 4) faculty development programs Following the panel discussion,
the participants will break in to smaller groups to discuss each of the models.
These sessions will help guide participants in taking these models back to their
institutions to improve the focus on education.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Design and implement a comprehensive faculty work plan in education. This
may include an educational RVU process, matching individual faculty effort
to department deliverables, developing an incentive plan for educational
productivity and incorporating individual requirements for faculty
development.
2) Facilitate faculty members turning educational activities into scholarship
using reflection, peer review and diverse means for the dissemination of
educational products.
3) Develop specific educational outcomes that can contribute to faculty
incentives.

Update on Public Health Research in Emergency Medicine: Follow-Up to the 2009 AEM Consensus Conference
DS155• Chicago 6
Session Time: Saturday, May 12, 2012 - 9:30 am- 11:00 am
The 2009 Academic Emergency Medicine Consensus Conference, Public Health
in the ED: Surveillance, Screening, and Interventions, brought together over 160
researchers, policymakers, funders, and others to craft a research agenda for
academicians in this broad, fast-changing area. The conference proceedings,
published in the November, 2009 issue of AEM, contained 31 papers outlining
the broad themes of this agenda. Content areas included substance use, injury
prevention, sexual behavior, and mental health. In the two years since, many
EM researchers have moved this agenda forward, by securing federal grants in
these areas, joining NIH study sections, and publishing papers in high-impact
journals. This session will feature presentations and an interactive discussion
between the audience and the organizers of the Consensus Conference. Steven
L. Bernstein, MD, will survey the grants and projects that have been funded
since the 2009 meeting. Gail D’Onofrio, MD, MS, will review the federal agencies,
foundations, and state and local public health agencies that support public
health research in the ED. Rebecca Cunningham, MD, will review advances in
designing and testing brief interventions for risky health behaviors, particularly
substance abuse. Lastly, the panelists will engage in a conversation with the
audience about future directions in public health research in the ED, with a
focus on preparing residents, fellows, and junior faculty with a “roadmap” to
build a career in this area. This will include discussion of training and networking
opportunities, existing research networks, and offline mentoring advice.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to:

Where is the Evidence II: Evidence-Based Approach to
Pediatric Abdominal Complaints
DS130 • Chicago 10
Session Time: Saturday, May 12, 2012 9:30:00 AM - 11:00:00 AM
Abdominal pain is among the most commonly encountered complaints in
emergency medicine, accounting for thousands of ED visits per year. Although
a frequently evaluated condition that can be indicative of pathologies with
significant morbidity and mortality, the majority of children with abdominal pain
do not have severe disease. Therefore, emergency physicians often have great
anxiety regarding evaluation these patients, and difficulty remains in identifying
appropriate children for diagnostic work-ups. In many cases, these challenges
result in excess diagnostic testing, radiation exposure, and unnecessary
hospitalization or interfaculty transfers for these children. For this didactic
session, the diagnostic approach to three common abdominal emergencies: 1)
intussusception, 2) acute appendicitis, and 3) blunt abdominal trauma, will be
discussed. Recent investigations have focused on the approach to each of these
conditions, specifically with respect to physical examination, serum testing, and
appropriate radiologic imaging. Influential studies on each of these conditions
have recently been completed, including multi-center investigations through the
Pediatric Emergency Medicine Collaborative Research Committee (PEM CRC) and
PECARN. Using these recent studies, the presenters will synthesize the evidence
and recommend evidenced-based best practices that emergency physicians can
readily implement into their everyday practice. Following the formal didactic
presentation, audience participation, queries, and discussion, will be welcomed.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Apply state-of-the-art PEM research to diagnosis and evaluation of abdominal
emergencies, and
2) Use current research to form sound evidence-based approaches to commonly
encountered abdominal emergencies that can readily be incorporated into
practice.

Funding Your Research
DS167 • Chicago 9
Session Time: Saturday, May 12, 2012 10:00:00 AM - 11:00:00 AM
Emergency medicine physicians often consider pursuing funding to support their
investigative efforts. This session is designed to describe the types of grants and
the funding mechanisms available to support research. The session will begin
with an introductory lecture followed by a panel discussion with individuals
who have successfully secured funding to support emergency medicine
research. Different types of grants appropriate for investigators at all stages of
their career, from novice researcher to seasoned investigator will be discussed.
A stepwise approach to funding in support of a logical progression of scientific
investigation will be presented. An overview of grant funding sources, including
federal and foundation grants will be discussed, as well as opportunities for
industry sponsored research. The introductory lecture session will be followed
by a panel discussion led by individuals who have received funding to support
research from a variety of sources, including federal grants, foundation grants,
and industry. The panelists will discuss the (1) typical application process for each
type of funding; (2) advantages and disadvantages of each funding category;
and (3) tips for application success. Session attendees will subsequently have the
opportunity to ask questions of the speaker and panelists.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, the participant should be able to:
1) Describe the available funding types and mechanisms,
2) Analyze the advantages and disadvantages of the various funding types,
3) Diagram and utilize the application process for grant funding to various
funding sources.

Death Warmed Over:Bringing Clinical Reasoning and DecisionMaking Sciences to Morbidity and Mortality Conference
DS140 • Sheraton 4
Session Time: Saturday, May 12, 2012 - 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Morbidity and mortality conference (M&M) is a common forum for discussing
clinical cases with undesirable events or outcomes for the purpose of improving
medical practice. EM residents frequently are responsible for leading M&M
conferences but often receive little training on how to facilitate sessions that
are educationally effective and engage the audience. EM faculty who supervise
M&M discussions often have little formal training as well. Central to the purpose
of the M&M conference is deciphering why a medical error occurred and what
measures can be taken to prevent reoccurrence. Case analysis too often focuses
on blame rather than identifying cognitive errors or faulty systems that could
easily happen again. It is paramount that presenters of M&M cases be trained to
analyze and critique clinical reasoning and involve the audience as active learners
in the process. This session will be particularly useful for EM residents and those
who mentor them, faculty involved in quality assurance and safety programs,
and faculty who coordinate M&M conferences. The presenters will demonstrate
how cognitive theory can be used to analyze diagnostic errors in the Emergency
Department. Cognitive biases that are often at the root of the “bad outcome” will
be presented along with common ED systems issues that are often contributing
factors. Finally, the presenters will discuss cognitive forcing strategies and other
tools that can be used to promote safe and effective decision-making in the ED.
Objectives: At the end of the session the participant should be able to:
1) Describe cognitive factors that physicians use in medical decision-making
and common cognitive errors present in emergency medicine.
2) Discuss ways cognitive and systems issues interact to either lead to or protect
against errors in ED decision-making.
3) Apply a structured approach to analyzing clinical reasoning and error in
morbidity and mortality cases.
4) Facilitate morbidity and mortality presentations that accomplish the
educational goal of promoting patient safety through active learning and
audience engagement.

Improve your Teaching: Evidence-based Teaching Workshop
using Articles that will Change your Teaching Practice
DS127 • Sheraton 5
Session Time: Saturday, May 12, 2012 - 10:30 am- 11:30 am
Rationale: In teaching, medical educators, like in clinical practice, should use the
37
evidence from the education literature and incorporate it into their teaching
practice. This session will help participants translate the evidence from some
landmark education articles to develop strategies to improve their teaching. The
major concepts include the evidence on: 1) how to improve memory and retention
2) optimizing instructional slides through cognitive theory of multimedia media
3) diagnostic error and clinical reasoning 4) divergence between self-assessment
and self-monitoring. The evidence will be briefly presented, then, in small groups
the participants will plan learning or assessment exercises from their own setting.
The session will be highly interactive, requiring participants to use both the
evidence and apply it to their teaching, learning and assessment practices. This
forum will incorporate exercises to understand the concepts and develop ways to
improve each participants’ teaching skills. Intended outcomes: The participants
will understand the evidence in these areas for effective teaching and assessment,
take home strategies for improving their teaching using and develop a plan for
how they will incorporate the evidence into their teaching practice
Objectives: By the close of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Identify new thinking about traditional teaching,
2) Describe the evidence from the teaching and learning literature,
3) Apply the evidence to develop strategies to change and improve your
teaching practice.

The Next Match What Academic Departments Want to See When They Hire
DS196 • Sheraton 5
Session Time: Saturday, May 12, 2012 - 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Matching the talents of EM residents and faculty applicants with the needs
of academic departments results in greater productivity and professional
gratification for both groups. Combining the experiences of long time program
directors and chairs, the moderator and panelists will discuss real and perceived
needs of academic departments, trends in hiring, desired cover letter and
CV features, and how the right individuals are found to fulfill the marketed
(and actual)positions. Continually evolving departments will benefit from
techniques used in selection, interviewing and landing new faculty, while
residents will glean insight into the next world of academics they hope to
inhabit in a contributing, sustainable way.
Objectives: By the close of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Describe major factors considered in interviewing faculty applicants
including desired features of cover letters and CVs.
2) Discuss long-term and recent trends in hiring. 3) Evaluate the actual selection
process of the persons comprising academic departments today and in the
future.

Dissemination and Translation of Research Results for Lay
Audiences and Policy Makers
DS191 Chicago 6
Session Time: Saturday, May 12, 2012 - 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Research, no matter how well designed and executed, has little impact if
the results cannot be easily translated and widely disseminated for patients,
providers, and policy makers. Emergency care is likely to be both blessed and
cursed by the fact that it is among the health care settings that is often most in the
public eye: while myths and anecdotes create barriers to effective dissemination
of emergency-care science, the same factors create an opportunity for
researchers to explain scientific results. The federal government has made
substantial investments in the domain of dissemination and translation of
health care evidence—particularly for comparative effectiveness research. The
overall objective of this didactic is to introduce methods which will provide
38
didactic participants and SAEM membership at large with the ability to “explain
the science” to a diverse groups of stakeholders using novel and effective
translational methods. Areas of focus will be 1) writing for lay audiences from
an evidence based perspective, 2) providing testimonials and scientifically
focused messages to policy makers, 3) using narratives to make results “sticky”
with real-life human impact, 4) crafting press releases and more modern
means of disseminating research results including social media and blogging.
Panelists will each describe their approach to communicating, translating, and
disseminating research results, practice guidelines and/or evidence-based
principles to key stakeholders in all areas of health care including hospital and
medical school leadership, local and national policy makers, the press, and the
public at large.
Objectives: At the completion of the session, participants should have an
improved understanding of the landscape, including gaps and opportunities,
for the dissemination and translation of research results: 1. Identify ten common
mistakes researchers make when communicating to lay persons (e.g. using
jargonized terms such as relative risk without context or explanation, conflating
statistical significance with clinical significance, failing to explain the difference
between effectiveness and efficacy, etc.) 2. Illustrate novel and effective
approaches to engaging non-academic audiences about the investigational
aspects of emergency care (including best practices for engaging the press, use
of social media, and using narratives to translate nuanced research and statistical
concepts). 3. Acquire techniques to overcome the linguistic and cultural barriers
that exist between scientific inquiry and the public interest and attention.

Research Fellowships: Picking the Right One
DS113 • Sheraton 4
Session Time: Saturday, May 12, 2012 - 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
The program will begin by describing the essential components of a research
fellowship in detail including mentorship (within and outside of emergency
medicine), research skills training, a terminal research degree, an institutional
training track record, and grant writing education and support, and a
perspective from the NIH about their expectations for research training. This
portion of the program is designed for residents and junior faculty who are
exploring fellowships and for more established faculty who may be considering
establishing a formal fellowship program. It will then discuss, “Why should I
do a research fellowship?” and describe the many granting mechanisms that
support fellows and junior faculty available through the NIH (T32, F32, K12,
IRTG, K08, etc) and foundations (RWJ, AHA, etc.) Following the overview of the
essential components of a research fellowship, a number of historic pathways
will be highlighted using case examples. These will include entering into an
established research training program not housed within emergency medicine,
entering an existing fellowship within emergency medicine, and developing
a research fellowship that builds upon components within and outside of
emergency medicine.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Identify the existing funding mechanisms for research training in emergency
medicine,
2) Identify the essential components of a research fellowship in emergency
medicine, and
3) Understand the many pathways to achieve research training in emergency
medicine.

Conflict Prevention & Resolution 101 Developing Skills for Trainees and Faculty
DS181 • Chicago 8
Session Time: Saturday, May 12, 2012 - 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
DS103 • Sheraton 5
Session Time: Saturday, May 12, 2012 - 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Conflict is a source of challenge in the medical workplace - requiring
professionalism and good listening skills. Working towards highly skilled
trainees requires active engagement and the use of tools to help understand
high-risk situations, to prevent escalation and when it occurs safely and
politically to find solutions that lead to adequate resolution of the problem. Our
current educational process has limited training in this area, leaving trainees
and faculty in uncomfortable positions when exposed to these situations. This
workshop is intended to give the participants the skill set to both learn some
techniques in conflict prevention / resolution as well as some of the tools to
facilitate and teach these skills in their home departments. Using case based
learning with role playing and active audience participation, attendees will
be introduced to communication techniques such as “PEACE” and “LEAPS”, as
well as other tools used in the management of situations which are polarities.
Audience will also be able to use these learning and teaching techniques to
develop their conflict resolution curriculum for their own institutions.
Objectives: By the close of this session, participants should be able to:
1) Understand different types of conflict commonly encountered in your
professional life,
2) Formulate specific techniques to prevent, reduce and resolve conflict,
3) Create case based scenarios that can be used for the education of trainees

The American Board of Medical Specialties approved a Maintenance of
Certification (MOC) program to “ensure that the highest standards of patient care
are established and maintained and that certified physicians are being assessed
by reliable and valid measures to continually improve patient care.” This session
will present an approach to MOC utilizing the unique properties of a simulationbased education program in which simulated patient care scenarios provide
practitioners the opportunity to refresh currently existing skills while adding
newer techniques to their professional toolbox. Other specialty boards are
currently piloting such efforts. It is the vision of experts in emergency medicine
(EM) simulation that the requisite expertise and infrastructure exists within
EM departments and could be mobilized to provide expert simulation-based
programs for physicians seeking experiential learning-based MOC. This didactic
session will (1) update attendees on advances in simulation-based training
and assessment at the level of the practicing physician, (2) describe a network
structure that could implement simulation as a mechanism for maintenance of
certification, (3) provide a sample curriculum for an MOC simulation session,
and (4) discuss potential barriers and challenges to advancing CME-based
simulation in a more structured manner.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, participants should be able to
1) Identify current barriers and opportunities inherent in the current MOC
processes,
2) Evaluate how present emergency medicine-based simulation activities can
be leveraged for future MOC,
3) Identify potential challenges and barriers to developing and implementing a
simulation-based MOC program, and
4) Propose possible solutions to the challenges and barriers discussed.

Continually incorporating technology into emergency medicine research is an
essential process. Newer technologies are increasingly part of the infrastructure
of medicine, and our patient population is increasingly familiar with receiving
information and communicating through technology-based modalities.
Further, technology provides potential solutions to perennial barriers to ED
research, such as time constraints, accessing difficult-to-reach populations,
systematically identifying potentially eligible patients for research, conducting
outcome assessment and obtaining follow-up after an index visit or
enrollment. The objective of this didactic is to discuss selected technologies
(interactive computer programs, text messaging, social media) and how their
use can improve the efficiency, efficacy and fidelity with which researchers are
able to perform core research functions. We will address approaches to major
concerns over using technologies for EM research, including ethical, privacy,
and safety issues.
Objectives: At the completion of the session, participants should have
an improved understanding of using selected technologies for research,
specifically:
1) Applications of selected technologies for subject recruitment, education,
consent, interventions and follow-up assessments;
2) Analyzing the technical expertise, infrastructure, and costs involved in using
selected technologies for EM research;
3) Evaluating privacy/confidentiality issues that arise when using technologies
to gather and store subject information.

Using Formal Reflective Exercises to Improve Medical Education
DS124 • Sheraton 5
Session Time: Saturday, May 12, 2012 - 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Reflection is a metacognitive process that creates greater understanding of self
and situations to inform future actions. When done correctly, reflection leads
to growth of individuals – morally, personally, psychologically, emotionally,
and cognitively. Ultimately, appropriate reflection may lead to improvement in
patient care. There is an inherent desire to reflect upon work experiences. We
reach out to colleagues to discuss cases, we vent frustration with loved ones,
and we refer ourselves to morbidity and mortality for peer review. Our desire to
reflect can lead to inappropriate actions as well such as Facebook postings and
Tweets about our feelings related to patient care. Educators should formalize the
reflection process and provide guidance to learners at all levels as they progress
through training. Teaching learners to reflect in an appropriate manner will help
them develop professionally during training and to continuously grow over a
long career. This session will define reflection and explain the role of reflection
in modern learning theories. The session will also discuss how reflection can
help achieve LCME and ACGME competencies. Concrete examples on how to
formalize the reflective process during medical student and resident training
will be demonstrated. The session will inform educators of best practices
regarding guiding learners through formalized reflective exercises.
Objectives: At the completion of this session, should be able to:
1) Define reflection,
2) Integrate reflection into personal and professional development,
3) List and show how to implement ACGME competencies that can be taught
through reflection,
4) List formats and modalities that can be used for structured reflection,
5) Evaluate the problems and pitfalls with unstructured or informal reflection.

Violence against Emergency Department Workers
DS138 • Erie Room
Session Time: Saturday, May 12, 2012 - 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Violence directed against emergency department workers affects everyone
involved in emergency care. This often-hostile environment can be a difficult
place to deliver appropriate clinical care. The many prongs of violence can
affect overall emergency department operations at several levels from
personnel morale to regulation at a state and federal level. This session will be
a moderated panel discussion discussing issues pertaining to violence against
health workers in the emergency department. Both of the speakers are funded
NIH and CDC researchers on the subject with multiple publications in the field.
They will discuss the current state of violence against healthcare workers,
regulatory issues, potential prevention measures, state laws, and ongoing
research pertaining to violence prevention.
Objectives: By the close of this session, participants will be able to:
1) Describe the extent of the problem of violence in the emergency department.
2) Analyze the reasons why emergency department staff are at risk and discuss
ways to prevent violence.
3) Identify ongoing research and areas of future research opportunities.

Conclusions: ED patients with AMS have a high prevalence of EEG
abnormalities, including encephalopathy and NCS. ED physicians
should have a high index of suspicion for such pathologies in AMS
patients. EEG is necessary to make the diagnosis of NCS/NCSE, for
which early treatment significantly reduces morbidity.
Results: As of November 21st, 2011, 880 of 1000 patients have
been enrolled (mean age: 54±8, 46.5% female, ACS rate 7.55%). The
anticipated completion of the last patient visit is 02/28/12 and the
database will be locked in early March 2012. We will present the results
of the primary, secondary, and some tertiary endpoints for the entire
cohort.
Conclusion: ROMICAT II will provide rigorous data on whether
incorporation of CCTA early in the ED evaluation process leads to more
efficient management and triage than SOC in patients with acute
chest pain at intermediate risk for ACS.

Inter-alpha Trypsin Inhibitor (ITI) levels in Emergency
Department Patients with Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock
Anthony M. Napoli, Ling Zhang, Fenwick Gardiner, Patrick Salome.
Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, Providence, RI
Background: Inter-alpha trypsin inhibitor (ITI) is a protein in a family
of plasma protease inhibitors that are thought to be protective in
sepsis by inhibiting serine proteases that play a role in inflammation.
Prolonged negative feedback of the inflammatory cascade is thought
to exhaust the body’s reserves of ITI leading to dysregulation of cellular
immunity and inflammation seen in sepsis. Low levels of ITI have
been associated with severe sepsis in ICU patients when compared to
healthy controls.
Objective: To determine if ITI levels in ED patients are significantly
lower in patients with severe sepsis and septic shock. To determine if
ITI levels correlate with the APACHE score.
Methods: Prospective observational cohort of controls(C), acutely ill
inflammatory non-septic illnesses (AINS) patients with SIRS criteria but
no clinical or pathologic evidence of infection, and patients with severe
sepsis or septic shock (SS) (lactate >4, SBP<90 after 2L normal saline).
Exclusion criteria include neutropenia, active treatment for cancer,
pregnancy, incarceration, hypothermia (environmentally induced, < 95
F), hyperthermia (environmentally induced, >104 F), or any attending
suspicion of coexisting traumatic, cardiogenic, or neurogenic shock.
A competitive ELISA assay using murine 69.26 antibody was used to
measure ITI levels. Based on prior results from inpatients with sepsis,
a sample size of 100 patients would be necessary (2 tail, p<0.05,β=0.8),
assuming a standard error of difference of 140.
Results: 103 patients were enrolled, 8 excluded secondary to protocol
violations, leaving a total of 95 patients. Mean age was 57±21. In SS
patients, mean shock index was 1.1±0.3, lactate 2.1±1.3, ScVO2 63±21,
and APACHE 15±6. ITI levels are lower in patients with SS (252 95%CI
234-269) vs. AINS 262 (95% CI 237-289) or C (292 95%CI 260-325),
p=0.05. ITI levels are weakly positively associated with APACHE score
in severe sepsis patients (r=0.36, p=0.01). However, ITI significantly
varied as a function of age within each cohort.
Conclusion: ITI levels in ED patients presenting with severe sepsis
are higher than control and AINS patients. However, the degree of
variability in ITI levels within each cohort as well as the differences
in ITI as a function of age between cohorts limits the utility of these
results without further research exploring whether age itself or
disease specific factors may account for these variations.

Increased Serum Albuterol Concentrations May Be Associated
With Elevations Of Serum Lactate In Subjects With Acute Asthma
Exacerbations
Kristen Aubuchon1, Kazuko Matsuda2, Stacey L. House1, Ian Ferguson1,
John Schneider1, Lawrence Lewis1. 1Washington University in St. Louis,
St. Louis, MO; 2Medicinova, Inc., San Diego, CA
Background: We have previously described increased serum lactate
concentrations in subjects with acute asthma exacerbation. It is not
78
clear if this is due to increased work of breathing or possibly a side
effect of treatment.
Objectives: 1) Determine if there is a significant correlation between
increased treatment lactate or ∆ lactate and serum albuterol
concentrations during treatment of an acute asthma exacerbation
after adjusting for dyspnea score. 2) Determine if elevated treatment
lactate concentrations or ∆ lactate concentrations are associated with
increased hospital admissions.
Methods: This is an interim, subgroup analysis of a prospective,
interventional, double-blind study performed in an academic urban
ED. Subjects that were consented for this trial presented with acute
asthma exacerbations with FEV1 < 50% predicted within 30 minutes
following initiation of “standard care” (includes a minimum of 2.5
mg nebulized albuterol; 0.5 mg nebulized ipratropium; and 50 mg
of a corticosteroid). ED physicians who were unaware of the study
objectives administered all treatments. Subjects were randomized
in a 1:1 ratio to either placebo or investigational intravenous beta
agonist arms. Blood was obtained at 1 and 1.25 hours after the start
of the hour long infusion for determination of albuterol and lactate
concentrations, and a Modified Borg Dyspnea Score (DS) was obtained
for all patients. The treatment lactate and ∆ lactate were correlated
with 1 hr serum albuterol concentrations and hospital admission using
partial Pearson correlations to adjust for DS.
Results: 42 subjects were enrolled to date, 20 with complete data.
The mean baseline serum lactate level was 19.3 mg/dL (SD ±9.5).
This increased to 32.6 mg/dL (SD ±15.8) at 1.25 hrs. The mean 1 hr DS
was 3.85+ 2.0. The correlation between treatment lactate, ∆ lactate,
1 hr serum albuterol concentrations (R, S and total) and admission to
hospital are shown (Table 1). Both treatment and ∆ lactate were highly
correlated with total serum albuterol, R albuterol, and S albuterol.
There was no correlation between treatment lactate or ∆ lactate and
hospital admission. There was also no significant difference in the
mean lactate levels in admitted vs. non-admitted patients (32.8 mg/
dL vs. 32.1 mg/dL, p=0.9). While not statistically significant, there was
a trend in twenty-four hour dyspnea scores in patients with markedly
elevated lactate (≥ 30 mg/dL) compared to those with lactate < 30 mg/
dL (3.19 vs. 1.88, p=0.08)
Conclusions: Lactate and ∆ lactate concentrations correlate with
albuterol concentrations in patients presenting with acute asthma
exacerbations after adjusting for dyspnea score, but do not correlate
with hospital admission.

be presented at their respective scientific assemblies. In an effort to provide a forum for SAEM Annual Meeting attendees to hear and experience the vast breadth of emergency medicine
research, abstracts submitted to or presented at other, non-emergency medicine, national meetings within the past calendar year (June 2012 to May 2013) will be considered for presentation at the SAEM Annual Meeting. Original abstracts presented at SAEM 2012-2013 Regional Meetings or the 2013 CORD Academic Assembly will be considered.
Only reports of original research may be submitted. The data must not be published in a manuscript or e-publication prior to the first day of the Annual Meeting except in abstract form
when associated with a presentation at a non-emergency medicine national conference.
Abstracts accepted for publication at the Annual Meeting will be published in the Academic Emergency Medicine online supplement. SAEM strongly encourages authors to submit their
manuscripts to AEM. AEM will notify authors of a decision regarding publication within 60 days of receipt of a manuscript.
Proposals for Innovations in Emergency Medicine Education (IEME) will be solicited with a deadline in January, 2013. Submission information will appear online on the SAEM Annual
Meeting webpage www.saem.org in November, 2012.
