Surgeons worldwide gather online to discuss treatments for trauma
Date:3/20/2013

AKRON, Ohio, March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A sad but universal truth is that children, no matter where they live in the world, are always at risk for injury.

A March 21 GlobalCastMD trauma symposium – an interactive television show produced at Akron Children's Hospital and streamed through the Internet – will bring together upwards of 800 physicians to share ideas on how to best treat injured children, with a strong focus on hospital preparedness for mass casualties.

"The information we exchange Thursday could very well save a child's life on Friday," said Todd Ponsky , MD, a pediatric surgeon at Akron Children's and founder of GlobalCastMD.

In some parts of the world, doctors have to rely on textbooks that are 10 years old. Our format removes the challenges of time, distance and travel expense, and gives everyone access to key opinion leaders as long as they have a computer in their home or office."

Dr. Ponsky will moderate, along with Wayne Meredith , MD, of Wake Forest University and the Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma, and Martin Eichelberger , MD, of George Washington University and Children's National Medical Center.

They will facilitate the discussion from a studio at Akron Children's, while an additional 14-member faculty will be joining online from as far as England and France to present research, new techniques and case studies. Hundreds of participants – most likely representing the seven continents – will follow along on their computers.

"It's not a webinar," noted Dr. Ponsky. "This format allows for three-way learning. The presenters teach and participants can call or email ques
