Mayo Clinic’s Critical Care Review for the Nurse Practitioner and Physician Assistant is an interactive course designed for advanced practice providers working with critically ill adult patients. The course is comprised of lecture-based sessions covering essential acute care topics such as vasoactive support, ECMO, secondary trauma assessment, intracranial pressure, anticoagulant reversal, acute liver failure, toxicology, and more. Each day offers an optional ultrasound workshop and an optional procedural skills workshop (workshops are repeated with the same content on both days to increase attendee capacity for each). These workshops provide both introductory and advanced concepts in ultrasound, airway management, and bedside procedures necessary for daily practice in an intensive care setting.

Target Audience

This course is designed for nurse practitioners, physician assistants, hospital and intensive care physicians and residents, registered nurses, allied health professionals, respiratory therapists, and NP/PA students in acute care.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Develop differential diagnoses for common presenting symptoms in the critically ill patient and order/interpret diagnostic testing based on these differentials.
  • Recognize normal and abnormal function of mechanical support devices and troubleshoot commonly encountered problems.
  • Demonstrate ultrasonographic image acquisition and interpretation of cardiac, lung, abdominal, and vascular images.
  • Recognize the need to tailor pharmacologic and procedural interventions to the unique characteristics of the critically ill patient.
  • Demonstrate the ability to perform the following procedures: central vascular access, intubation, bronchoscopy, emergency cricothyrotomy, and percutaneous tracheotomy.

Attendance at any Mayo Clinic course does not indicate or guarantee competence or proficiency in the skills, knowledge or performance of any care or procedure(s) which may be discussed or taught in this course.
