Conference Program

Tuesday, October 31

Preconference: Complex Issues in Critically Ill and Injured Children

Caring for a critically ill pediatric ED or ICU patient, whose clinical status may rapidly change, requires careful observation and timely, appropriate and safe intervention.  This Preconference will take an in-depth look at three of the more complex and challenging issues faced by clinical teams in both settings.  Each issue will be approached through the lens of pathophysiology, principles of care and case study discussions. Utilize this critical awareness and knowledge to better care for these children with complex medical and nursing needs.

This Preconference will enable you to:

  • Assess the critically ill or injured child’s clinical presentation utilizing an increased understanding of pathophysiology and etiology of complications.
  • Explore assessment skills and treatment strategies required to manage pediatric patients faced with shock, increased ICP and pulmonary hypertension.
  • Apply knowledge learned during in-depth case study discussions.
