2017 Advanced Critical Care & Emergency Nursing Conference

Nov 1, 2017 ‐ Nov 4, 2017


ICU and ED nurses are a unique group of high energy, confident, quick-thinking individuals with an ever-present need for more knowledge in order to provide the best possible care and outcomes for their patients. We hope the content offered in this conference and presented by nationally-known experts will help you achieve this goal.

Learning Objectives:

This program will enable experienced ICU and ED clinicians to:

Better assess critically ill and injured patients, provide timely, appropriate evidence-based care, and evaluate patient response through collaboration with the ICU and/or ED team.

Explore pharmacologic challenges surrounding anesthesia, Cytochrome P450, antimicrobial use and abuse, street drugs, overdoses, anticoagulation and ED medications.

Utilize information from new STEMI and Sepsis Guidelines when assessing ICU and ED patients.

Describe the utilization of diagnostic and monitoring tools including 12-lead ECG, PA catheters and imaging.

Examine the pathophysiology associated with toxidromes, acute CHF, cardiomyopathy, pulmonary arterial hypertension, AKI, brain death and endocrine emergencies.
