Diagnosis and Treatment of Common Minor Hand Emergencies: What Every Primary Care Physician Would Like to Know
We use our hands at work and play. Our hands bring us enjoyment but are frequently injured. Timely recognition & treatment of common hand and upper extremity injuries & emergencies help return our patients to full productivity. This webinar will enable the learner to confidently diagnose and treat minor emergencies, adequately stabilize & triage more complex emergencies, and recognize the very serious, though sometimes misdiagnosed, urgent emergencies that require immediate recognition and referral.

Objectives
Hand and upper extremity emergencies present commonly to emergency rooms. At the conclusion of this activity, the attendee should be able to:
Recognize and diagnose treatment patterns.
Treat, stabilize, and triage more common emergencies.
Understand major limb threatening emergencies that may initially seem trivial.
