The 2018 9th Annual Gulf Coast Acute Care Surgery Symposium aims to exceed expectations and provide physicians, surgeons, nurses, and technicians with current evidence-based concepts and techniques of resuscitation, diagnostic evaluation, and therapeutic intervention from scientific and humanistic perspectives. The rapid assessment and early intervention are essential to achieve optimal outcome for the critically ill and/or injured patient. Data related to the care of critically ill and injured patients is rapidly evolving with advances in science and technology. If implementation at the bedside fails to keep pace, optimal patient care can be compromised.
