Emergency and critical care patients can present the nursing team with a number of challenges, but when approached systematically and with confidence, this group of patients can be hugely rewarding to nurse. These patients often have a requirement for indwelling devices such as catheters, drains or feeding tubes and nurses can be actively involved in the placement of these devices, in addition to managing them and troubleshooting complications that may arise. Nurses should also feel familiar with the concept of CPR, how best to be prepared and how to deliver basic and advanced life support techniques in the crashing patient.
A combination of theory and practical sessions will be used to explore some of the more commonly utilised techniques and devices used in the management of the sick hospitalised patient.
The theoretical component of this course aims to refresh your knowledge of the indications when specific devices or techniques may be considered, placement methods, the principles of management and how to troubleshoot complications.
A significant part of the day will be spent in practical sessions giving you the opportunity to practice the techniques discussed in the lectures.
Topics to be covered include:
- Central venous catheters
- Nasal oxygen catheters
- Naso-oesophageal feeding tubes
- Urinary catheters
- Seldinger chest drains
Please Note: This is a cadaver-based course
