2019 Advanced Case-Based Interactive Critical Care
Experts in the field of critical care medicine will integrate evidence-based management strategies with hands-on simulation to provide a highly interactive course that includes both dynamic lectures and human simulator education to augment state-of-the art evaluation and management of critically ill patients. This innovative pre-course will offer the latest evidence based in topics such as shock and pressor management; basic and advanced mechanical ventilator strategies; approach to airway management; use of ultrasound in the critically ill patient; neurological critical care; medical toxicology. The didactic sessions will serve as a foundation of evidence that participants can then actively apply during the simulation sessions, especially in the management of difficult hemodynamic and airway cases.
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants will be better able to:
- Utilize mechanical ventilator physiology to strategically manage complex critical care situations including troubleshooting ventilator problems and caring for acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS)
- Integrate physiology and literature evidence in the management of common and less common forms of shock as well as the poisoned patient
- Identify and manage basic and difficult airways including difficult to oxygenate and/or ventilate patients, utilizing bag-valve-mask optimally, and efficiently securing an airway
- Assess, triage, and manage patients with neurocritical emergencies as well as critically ill patients with cardiovascular insults, and understand the utility of point of care ultrasound in the care of the critically ill patient.
