The ECT4Health HDU/ICU/Critical Care Series (HICCS) online education series is designed to assist nurses who have found themselves having to update their knowledge to be confident to work with patients that have critical illness. The program focuses on respiratory assessment distress and respiratory failure management.
There is a review on ABG analysis, up to date assessment and management of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) as a pathophysiological consequence of COVID19. Cardiac support looking at a range of critical care specific medication, a session updating the learner on sepsis and shock to completes this 10 CPD (10 Part series).
