A proposed model for a residency experience in mass gathering medicine : the United States Air Show.
Society for Academic Emergency Medicine annual meeting. Toronto ON (CAN), 1992/05.
Mass gathering medicine is an increasingly important responsibility for emergency physicians.
A formal experience in mass gathering medicine can introduce emergency medicine residents to this aspect of community medicine.
Educational model based on field experience and retrospective chart review from 1981 through 1991.
The US Air Show is a summer event that attracts an average of 223,000 spectators annually.
Medical care is provided by physicians, nurses, and technicians operating within an organized system of care.
Emergency medicine resident physicians (first-, second-, and third-year) evaluate and treat patients appropriate for the resident's level of responsibility.
Residents provide immediate medical control and are integrated into the event disaster plan.
