2023 The Calm After the Storm – Critical Care for Today’s Hospitalist
This course will walk you through the diagnosis and management of many common urgent and emergent conditions that every hospitalist will encounter. We will discuss when to call for help and how best to transfer a patient from a rural to a tertiary care center. This interactive course will bring together critical care experts, and include audience response, case-based discussions, small group activities and hands on airway management.
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, especially in the first 48 hours of initiation
- Diagnose and formulate appropriate treatment strategies for shock and incorporate the latest guideline recommendations
- Recognize and describe evidence-based management of common neurologic, hematologic, oncologic, endocrinologic emergencies that hospitalists will encounter
- Apply the newly acquired knowledge and skills to allow for greater confidence in the management of the complex critically ill patient, as well as apply alternatives to “best practices” in a resource limited environment
