About the Event

Join Chloe Fay BSc (Hons) RVN CertVN ECC NCert (Anaesthesia) VTS ECC BLS & ALS RECOVER Instructor   in this fantastic immersive day addressing the fundamentals of emergency and critical care, this course will provide you with the skills and knowledge to nurse any ECC case. The course will focus on the practical skills required to nurse high intensity cases, as well as the knowledge of how to identify these patients, the critical

care thinking skills required to nurse them and a deep dive of some of the more commonly

encountered patients. 

The course will be hands on, as well as interactive with lots of cases to talk through, to help increase

understanding of some of the more complex skills. An appreciation of triage and the application of

the rule of 20, ECG recognition, fluid therapy and blood gas analysis will be followed by nursing

considerations for specific conditions such as cardio-respiratory patients. You will be treated to a fantastic day, great food and a beautiful venue.

*Lecture One: Triage and the Rule of 20

Discussion of triage from the phone right through to the critical care setting, using patient scoring

systems and using Kirby’s rule of 20 and its application.

*Lecture Two: ECG Recognition

Understanding the ECG trace, how we can differentiate rhythms and what may cause them, with

reviewing of hyper/hypokalaemia and its effects.

*Lecture Three: Fluid Therapy

In depth review of the differences between shock and dehydration, how these are treated and

evaluation of the component therapies that are available. Discussion of the nursing considerations

for the fluid therapy choices will also be addressed as well as assessing fluid responsiveness and

which catheter placement is most appropriate.

*Lecture Four: Blood Gas Analysis

This lecture serves to build a better understanding of blood gas analysis and acid-base derangements

that are so commonly seen in the critical patients. This lecture will tie in with the previous lectures

and a deeper discussion of how these derangements can come about, as well as treatment indicated

will be addressed.

*Lecture Five & Six: Nursing Considerations

This lecture will serve as a short series of the specific nursing considerations for the cardio-

respiratory patient, the urinary/renal patient, the head trauma patient and the septic patient.
