Critical Care Bootcamp 2014!

Emergency department and in-hospital providers are under more pressure than ever before to practice critical care medicine outside the ICU. The simultaneous occurrence of hospital overcrowding, an aging population, and increasing nursing home referrals of patients with multiple co-morbidities has resulted in a substantial increase in critically ill patients in the hospital, and a national shortage of critical care-trained physicians has brought the burden of caring for these patients to emergency physicians and hospitalists. These providers are now routinely required to manage patients for prolonged periods on ventilators, to initiate and sustain sepsis protocols, to diagnose and treat the various forms of shock, and to perform advanced techniques in hemodynamic monitoring.

The “Critical Care Bootcamp” is designed and taught by experts in resuscitation with a single goal in mind—to train you how to provide optimal care for the most critically ill patients in your practice, whether in the ED or on the medical floors.
