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.
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.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Define common organ failure syndromes in the critically ill patient, such as shock and respiratory failure.
- Practice evidence-based strategies for management of complex patients with multiorgan system dysfunction.
- Discuss management and resuscitation of the post-surgical critical care patient.
- Demonstrate ultrasonographic image acquisition and interpretation of cardiac, lung, abdominal, and vascular images.
- Demonstrate the ability to perform the following procedures: central vascular access, intubation, bronchoscopy, emergency cricothyrotomy, and percutaneous tracheotomy.
