TARGET AUDIENCE

This course is designed for physicians, certified registered nurse anesthetists, registered nurses, physician assistants, and other medical care providers who need to obtain or update resuscitation skills and documentation.

PROGRAM PURPOSE

Due to the inherent knowledge, skills, practice locations, and populations of patients served by practitioners of anesthesiology and/or emergency and critical care medicine, the physicians, nurses, and other such advanced care providers are summoned to serve the dying patient, particularly those whose death is sudden and unexpected. This program is designed to update these practitioners with the latest consensus on this body of scientific information in the form of formal guidelines provided by national agencies, recognized to possess the resources to develop guidelines and identify mandatory skills, which are required to provide quality resuscitative care for patients of all ages in all clinical and non-clinical locations.

OBJECTIVES

At the conclusion of this program, the participant will be able to:

Explain the latest guidelines for resuscitation, including but not limited to basic scientific studies, pharmacology, dysrhythmia identification, pertinent equipment, and recommended therapeutic intervention, featuring those most recently added or altered, through the citation of the specific scientific background for each and the description of how this newer information impacts the performance of resuscitative procedures.

Successfully meet the current requirements of the American Heart Association and, as appropriate, other pertinent agencies jointly sponsoring guidelines with this association, in documenting proficiency in providing resuscitative care

Apply this information in the clinical setting most commonly encountered in the day-to-day clinical practice of the participant.
