Two Seminar Topics: Rapid Response & Rhythms and 12-Leads


Rapid Response: Avoiding Failure to Rescue
Seminar 1 | Monday, February 6, 2017

This comprehensive day course will provide the bedside nurse and members of the Rapid Response Team (RRT) with the tools necessary to recognize clinical deterioration and avert failure to rescue. The course will begin with an overview of the Rapid Response System (RRS) and the subsequent development of an RRT. This is followed by an overview of the roles for the bedside caregiver and members of the RRT. Detailed scenarios will be presented that will challenge the attendee to critically think through the process of assessment, identification of the problem and then strategies for management.

Program Learning Outcomes
This program prepares the learner to:

  1. Identify early warning signs of clinical deterioration.
  2. List the indicators for the implementation of the RRS.
  3. List appropriate assessment and differentials for selected clinical crises.
  4. Discuss current evidence-based management strategies.
  5. Evaluate current research results for the RRS.

Rapid Assessment of Critical Rhythms and 12-Leads
Seminar 2 | Tuesday, February 7, 2017

Rapid and accurate interpretation of rhythms and 12-Leads during cardiac emergencies ensures optimal interventions, resulting in improved patient outcomes. This 1-day program will provide a concise and systematic approach to the interpretation of the ECG that includes instruction as to which leads are best suited to reveal important interpretive clues, along with descriptions of the subtle and not-so-subtle morphologic clues seen in potentially life-threatening conditions. Several electrocardiographic tracings and scenarios are presented throughout the day that will provide opportunities for interaction and practice. 

Program Learning Outcomes
This program prepares the learner to:

  1. Outline a systematic approach to the analysis and interpretation of rhythms and 12-Leads.
  2. Correlate lead selections with specific electrocardiographic abnormalities.
  3. Accurately interpret selected ECG rhythms and 12-Leads.
