Combined toxicology workshop

Combined toxicology workshop:

  • Antidotes in toxicology - Anecdote or evidence-based use? (Andis Graudins)
  • 'Toxic seizures in the ED' and 'Tox-EKG: drug-induced arrhythmias' (Naren Gunja)

Combined toxicology workshop by Andis Graudins and Naren Gunja both providing a 45 minute workshop in separate rooms. After each workshop the participants will switch between these rooms.

Antidotes in toxicology - Evidence and anecdote
There are a number of antidotal agents recommended as so-called ‘magic bullets’ in the treatment of specific poisonings and intoxications
While some of these are used often and have a relatively high level of evidence supportive their effectiveness, there are a number of antidotal agents recommended in specific poisoning scenarios where the effectiveness  and indications are not well defined.

This workshops aims to discuss some of the more commonly recommended antidotal agents used in acute intoxication and their effectiveness and evidence behind their use. This will include acetylcysteine and tailored regimens for various paracetamol overdose types, high-dose insulin therapy and glucagon in beta-blocker and calcium channel blocker overdose, lipid rescue therapy, treatment of vasodilatory shock, treatment of hypoglycaemic poisoning, and other significant intoxication scenarios.

Trippin’ and Fittin’: drug-induced seizures

  • how do drugs cause seizures? mechanisms and toxicodynamics explored in this important topic in toxicology
  • which drugs can induce seizures?
  • management and antidotes will also be covered

To QT or not to QT: ECGs in Toxicology

  • measuring the QT - what’s the big deal?
  • the QT nomogram
  • sodium channel blocking drugs and their effects on the ECG
  • management of drug-induced arrhythmias

Tactical Medicine

Unfortunately the world around us is becoming more and more dangerous. Terrorist attacks, bombings and active shooters are scenarios emergency medicine providers should prepare for. Tactical Medicine is medicine in combat situations where provider safety is not guaranteed.
In this workshop you will learn the gist of Tactical Medicine. The life you save may be your own.

Time 11.00 - 12.30h and 13.45 - 15.15h

Kritisch denken voor beginners

Alles wat je als dokter doet, zou 'redelijk' moeten zijn, gebaseerd op goede argumenten. Goed argumenteren hebben de meesten van ons echter nooit op school geleerd; we denken wel dat we competent zijn, maar dat valt in de praktijk vaak vies tegen. ECHT goed kunnen argumenteren is echt heel moeilijk. Maar ook echt heel leuk om te leren. In deze workshop maak je kennis met enkele basics van de schone kunst van het kritisch denken.

Tijd 13.45 - 15.00 uur
Room 533
Spreker Menno de Bree
