2022 Turning Chaos into Calm: Critical Care Management for Today’s Hospitalist
Whether you have practiced for years in the ICU or jumped (…or were thrown) into critical care during the pandemic, this course will provide you with the knowledge and skills you will need to thrive in the care of critically ill patients. We will walk you through the management of many urgent and emergent situations that every hospitalist encounters, as well as discuss when to call for help. Topics addressed will range from basic ventilator management and ARDS to shock and sepsis, to neurologic emergencies, toxidromes and more. The interactive course will bring together experts in critical care and include audience response questions, case-based discussion, and small group activities.
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants will be better able to:
- Manage patients with respiratory failure including making decisions about airway management, initiation of non-invasive and invasive ventilation, and other therapeutic interventions
- Determine initial mechanical ventilation settings and troubleshoot changes based on patient physiology and ventilator synchrony
- Categorize different types of shock and the pathophysiologic mechanisms behind each, with a focus on formulating appropriate treatment strategies for septic shock and incorporating the latest guideline recommendations
- Recognize and describe evidence-based management of neurologic emergencies, abdominal critical illness and common toxidromes.
- Apply the newly acquired knowledge and skills to allow for greater confidence in the management of the complex critically ill patient
