COVID-19 Video Series Back To The Basics: Caring For The Critically Ill

In support of nurses during the COVID-19 pandemic, I have been in my home studio recording a series of free videos that focus on care for the critically ill. There are 6 videos that are 15 - 20 minutes long, covering the basics of mechanical ventilation for a patient that has respiratory failure.

These videos are targeted to nurses who work in low acuity critical care and non-ICU areas.

The video series includes:

Initiatives in Safe Patient Care

Early Warning Scoring (EWS) systems provide a commonly understood way to recognize the degree of deterioration in a patient’s status, and can ensure that every patient is seen at the right time by the right person. The EWS is based on the collection of a combination of vital signs including heart rate, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation, blood pressure and body temperature. In this webinar, there will a discussion of the benefits, variations and strategies for overcoming barriers to successful implementation of EWS in hospitals.

Upon completion of this webinar, the participant will be able to:

  1. Discuss the purpose of early warning systems (EWS)
  2. Describe common reasons for clinical decompensation
  3. Discuss the benefits of EWS
  4. Identify barriers to implementation of EWS

The Right Balance: Optimizing Fluid Management

Fluid therapy is provided to restore and maintain tissue perfusion, and is part of routine management for most hospitalized patients. However either too much or too little fluid can have serious consequences. Safe intravenous fluid management requires the relevant clinical skills and critical assessment of fluid balance carefully tailored for each patient.

Assessing whether fluid may help or harm your patient is a critical step in optimizing treatment. Through a comprehensive review of clinical evidence and case studies, this webinar series will help clinicians improve their critical decision-making to find the right balance.
