Battling Opioid Over-Prescription from Inside the ED

From treating acute traumatic pain like a fractured hip to dealing with patients reporting chronic pain, emergency physicians are identifying new ways to alleviate patient suffering without prescribing potentially addictive narcotics. Innovative methods like ultrasound-guided regional nerve blocks can take patient pain from 10 to 0 in a matter of minutes.

Join Fujifilm SonoSite (booth #2307) in Washington D.C. at ACEP 2017, to hear Dr. Alexis LaPietra speak about the U.S. opioid epidemic and how EMED doctors are using point-of-care ultrasound for regional nerve blocks to help reduce opioid prescriptions.

Dr. LaPietra, Medical Director of Emergency Medicine Pain Management at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in New Jersey will be speaking at SonoSite booth #2307:

Sunday, October 29th 10:45am - 11:30am
Monday, October 30th 10:45am - 11:30am
