Critically Ill Patients: Do You Know How to Hold Them?

Are you a Crisis Nurse? Resource Nurse? Charge Nurse? ICU Nurse? Have you ever cared for an ICU patient outside of the ICU? Any patient in the hospital can become critically ill. It is common for the critical care units to be fully occupied and the patient remains where they are for a period of time.

This program will focus on the care needs of the adult critically ill patient “boarded” in a non-critical care unit. The common unstable events of Heart Failure, Acute Coronary Syndrome, Pneumonia, Sepsis, COPD, Stroke and DKA will be reviewed.

The evidence-based practice and national guidelines will be addressed. And pharmacological management including vasoactive drug titration will be discussed. Advanced assessments, such as dysrhythmia and fluid/ electrolyte monitoring and management will be evaluated.

This course is intended for all nurses who care for the inpatient adult population. The nurse will be challenged to stretch their knowledge beyond the initial resuscitation of the critically ill patient.
