Dr. Juan Asensio addresses attendees at the Trauma Symposium

Almost 300 health care professionals attended this year’s Trauma Symposium to learn about everything from resuscitation to the effects of trauma. The vital role of EMS in patient outcomes was also covered, along with “Secrets of the Master Trauma Surgeons.”

A first at this year’s symposium: a table of recent trauma patients who joined the healthcare professionals in the grand ballroom for lunch. The daylong event also attracted reporters from three television stations and the Omaha World-Herald.

The course directors were Juan A. Asensio, MD, FACS, FCCM, FRCS (England), KM, and Michel Wagner, MD, FACS. The symposium was jointly provided by the Creighton University School of Medicine Department of Surgery, the Division of Trauma Surgery and Surgical Critical Care, the CHI Health Creighton University Medical Center Trauma Program, Creighton University Health Sciences Continuing Education, Creighton University EMS Education, CHI Health, Life Net Air Medical Services, the Nebraska ENA State Council and the Emergency Nurses Association.
