Tuesday, May 17, 7:00-8:30 a.m. CT

Calendar 7:00-8:30 a.m. CT
Description

Join us for this fast-paced, interactive educational discussion. Hear from three critical care educational specialists as they debate important topics in the ICU, including blood pressure management, vasopressor administration, passive leg raise maneuvers, pulmonary artery catheter utilization and shock differentiation. After each provides their position, the audience will select who best presented their topic. Come prepared to have fun and learn about cardiopulmonary physiology.

Objectives
  • Describe at least one learned clinical concept for the assessment and management of patients in shock
  • Identify advanced parameters nurses can assess for the effectiveness of vasopressors and inotropes
