This accredited curriculumâ€™s highlights include pathophysiology, treatment and prioritization of care for a variety of medical problems commonly encountered in wilderness environments and settings remote from hospital/ definitive care. Physicians and allied health care providers who counsel patients traveling to remote areas will be interested in the topics covered during this unique CME event. Curriculum includes altitude safety, altitude risk reduction, recent recommendations on altitude-related illnesses prophylaxis, rescue strategies and ethics, as well as real Everest war stories- uncovering what it really takes to save a life in the high mountain environment. This will be achieved through didactic lectures, small-group discussions, hands-on training and scenario-based simulation.
Berg Adventures International is operating an Everest expedition Sept. 15 to Oct. 31 â€˜09 - physicians apart of this CME will spend two nights at base camp to experience a working summit expedition- an exclusive opportunity. Discussions at base camp include the expedition physician.
