SHOCK!

  • : Online

This one-day workshop has been developed to meet the needs of medical officers in the management of life threatening emergencies in rural Emergency Deparments. Using high fidelity simulation as well as skill stations, the workshop incorporates key aspects of Advanced Life Support skills in accordance with the Australian Resuscitation Council guidelines.

The course is conducted by FACEM instructors experienced in Rural Emergency Departments.  

Participation is capped to 16 medical staff for maximum learning benefit from hands-on nature of the course. 

This workshop aims to provide participants with the following skills and knowledge:

  • an understanding of, and practical competence in both basic life support (including CPR, etc) and advanced life support with a focus on the issues that a rural practitioner might encounter

  • competence in airway management techniques that include basic airway manoeuvres such as Guedel airway, bag and mask, oxygen therapy, and more advanced airway manoeuvres such as the use of  laryngeal mask or intubation

  • demonstrated ability to efficiently use a manual defibrillator and an automated external defibrillator (AED)

  • demonstrated ability to identify and manage basic life threatening arrhythmias such as VF and VT

  • competence in intravenous and intraosseous access and have understanding of the administration of drugs in resuscitation, in particular the dose and frequency.
