Date: Monday 3rd June, 2024 - Friday 12th July, 2024
Start time: 12:00 AM - 12:00 AM
Duration: 15 hour(s)
Cost: £255

This six week course covers advanced anaesthesia and critical care concepts, and is therefore most suitable for experienced nurses working in referral centres, or those taking further qualifications in this field. The course covers anaesthesia techniques including spirometry, blood gas analysis, invasive blood pressure, mechanical ventilation and ECG interpretation.


Week 1 - Preparation and Monitoring of Critical Cases

Preparedness
Considerations
Invasive blood pressure monitoring
Blood gas analysis
Spirometry

Learning objectives
After completion of this week, participants should be able to:

List generalised considerations for preparing to anaesthetise emergency cases
How to setup and use invasive blood pressure monitoring and how this relates to oscillometric and doppler techniques
Interpret a basic blood gas analysis and outline how this abnormality may have occurred
Explain what spirometry is and how it differs from capnography


Week 2 - Abdominal Surgical Emergencies

Gastric dilatation and volvulus
Haemoabdomen
The acute abdomen
Epidural anaesthesia

Learning objectives
After completion of this week, participants should be able to:

Understand the physiological disturbances caused by gastric dilatation and volvulus
Understand the physiological disturbances caused by haemoabdomen
Understand the physiological disturbances caused by the acute abdomen
Suggest considerations for these surgeries and list possible complications that may arise during anaesthesia
List the total and relative contraindications for epidural anaesthesia


Week 3 - Thoracic Surgical Emergencies

Pyothorax
Penetrating injuries
Diaphragmatic rupture
Mechanical ventilation

Learning objectives
After completion of this week, participants should be able to:

Understand the physiological disturbances caused by pyothorax
Understand the physiological disturbances caused by a penetrating injury
Understand the physiological disturbances caused by diaphragmatic rupture
Suggest considerations for these surgeries and list possible complications that may arise during anaesthesia
Feel able to safely choose ventilator settings for use during non-emergency surgery


Week 4 - Caesarean

Physiology
ASA categorisation
Anaesthesia protocols
Anaesthesia infusions (TIVA)

Learning objectives
After completion of this week, participants should be able to:

Understand the physiological considerations for caesarean section
Assign and justify the choice of an ASA category to the caesarean section patient
Suggest a safe protocol for caesarean section, with variation based on differing drug availability depending on clinical setting
Understand the basis of total intravenous anaesthesia infusions


Week 5 - What's Happening? What Should I Do?

Hypoxia
Hypocapnia
Hypotension
ECG Abnormalities

Learning objectives
After completion of this week, participants should be able to:

List possible causes of, and suggest treatments for hypoxia and hypocapnia
List possible causes of hypotension and discuss the physiology of both pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment options
Interpret the most common ECG abnormalities seen and understand how these rhythms will affect the patient, and have an understanding of possible treatment options


Week 6 - CRASH!

Recover CPR guidelines
Crash box
Basic life support
Advanced life support

Learning objectives
After completion of this week, participants should be able to:

List the vital components of a crash box
Perform safe and effective chest compressions in a variety of patient sizes and conformations.
Understand how to monitor the effectiveness of CPR in the clinical setting
Interpret the most common ECG rhythms seen during CPR
Know what drug treatment options are available during CPR
