Unstable Tachyarrhythmias For The Hospitalist

SUMMARY

Many hospitalists provide critical care services without adequate support or training, putting patients at risk and exposing hospitalists to medical liability. This educational series covers common or high-risk clinical scenarios that hospitalists encounter in and out of the intensive care unit.

TARGET AUDIENCE

Any hospitalist physician or advanced practice provider who manages patients in an intensive care unit (ICU). 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

After completing the module, the participant should be able to:

  • Recognize patients at high risk of decompensation and how to intervene early to prevent decompensation.
  • Focus on physiology and pathophysiology to understand the disease process and how interventions are intended to correct these pathophysiological mechanisms.
  • Discern commonly encountered critical care scenarios/pathology: Airway management, Non-Invasive Positive Pressure Ventilation, Tachyarrythmias, Pulmonary Embolism, and Intra-cranial hemorrhage. The intent is to continue this lecture series with other commonly encountered critical care scenarios.
  • Formulate and implement a treatment strategy in a timely manner for those commonly encountered critical care pathologies in a timely manner based on current evidence and guidelines (when available). 
  • Decide when to call for help and what service/support to request.
