Objectives
  1. Identify current challenges relative to your specific practice environment and patient populations.
  2. Develop a proactive plan to respond to your deteriorating patient.

  4. Integrate a comprehensive review of systems, with subtle but key red flag clinical assessment findings.
  5. Incorporate a graduate level understanding of pharmacology into your current clinical practice with respect to the pre-, peri-, and post-arrest management of the medically fragile patient.
  6. Apply advanced laboratory medicine concepts into your current clinical practice with respect to the “at risk” patient.
  7. Recognize the subtle signs from the “perfect storm” patient.
  8. Choose the best interventions for stabilization of the deteriorating patient.
  9. Determine the key interventions to stabilize the successfully resuscitated patient prior to or post transfer.
  10. Analyze the latest clinical practice guidelines for common pathologies and comorbidities.
  11. Evaluate landmark case studies to identify key failures in recognition and rescue of the crashing patient.
