EMET FNQ - Critical Care Fusion Simulation
- : Online
Target audience is Rural Medical Practitioners, Rural Registrars and senior nursing staff.
Participants will work through a number of scenarios in discussion and simulation sessions. Topics will include resuscitation (including advanced airway management) of the hypoxic, the hypotensive, trauma (adult and paediatric), septic shock (adult and paediatric), toxicological, acute endocrine, behavioural disturbance, and anaphylaxis patient. These are patients who present difficult physiological challenges to the acute treating team. Participants will also cover the use of inotropes, vasopressors, and electrolytes in resuscitation. Participants will explore methods to better stabilise these patients to minimise the risks associated with airway management and ventilations.
Practise communication skills around the management of the severely ill patient.
Understand and practise the tools of crisis resource management.
Recognise physiological factors that may compromise airway/ventilation management in the severely ill patient.
Practise the optimisation of physiologically compromised patient prior to airway/ventilation management.
Understand utility of non-invasive ventilation in management of patient with respiratory failure.
Manage an airway, including intubation, in an unstable trauma patient.
Revise the management of major chest injury
Revise primary and secondary survey in management of trauma.
Revise the management of a paediatric patient with severe head injury.
Revise initial management of patient with acute severe burns.
Understand principals of crisis resource management in the setting of trauma resuscitation.
Review use of inotropes and vasopressors in resuscitation.
Update management of severe electrolyte disorders including hyperkalaemia
Review current management of anaphylaxis
Review principles of acute management of endocrine disorders
Update management of adult and paediatric patient with severe sepsis
Review principles of toxicological management
Understand principles of rapid sedation and a graded approach to pharmaceutical agents.
Approach to assessing organic and non-organic causes of behavioural presentations and discussion of practical application.
1) Evaluation Form
2) Skill-based Assessment
3) Participation in Discussions.
Active participation in the workshop is sufficient for completion.
Accredited for 1 day Procedural Grant under the Emergency or Anaesthetics component.
This workshop is designed to allow participants to explore aspects of resuscitation of some common conditions and also some less common conditions that are important for participants to be able to manage.
Airway management and ventilation of the critically ill patient are revisited with the emphasis on physiological factors. These factors include respiratory failure, hypotension and acidosis. Participants will explore techniques to optimise their patients prior to any intervention (revisiting the concept of ‘delayed sequence intubation’).
There will be a minimum of six and a maximum of eight high fidelity scenarios – the number will be tailored to the group’s needs. The scenarios will cover septic shock in the adult and paediatric patient, trauma in the adult and paediatric patient, acute behavioural disturbance, endocrine causes of shock, anaphylaxis, and sever hyperkalaemia.
The scenarios will be utilised to allow participants to explore the topics and skills discussed. Debriefing will reinforce the earlier learning and allow discussion of crisis resource management skills in the setting of critical resuscitations.
