Resuscitation and care of the critically ill defines the true essence of our clinical practice. A mastery of invasive procedures is fundamental to resuscitation, emergency patient stabilisation and patient safety. These invasive procedures often required to save a life may not be utilised optimally due to lack of practice, concern for complications, lack of familiarity, or advances in equipment or technique since one’s training. You will be joining internationally renowned faculty in a closely supervised environment with hands-on labs that are designed to improve practitioner competence at invasive procedures. The lab utilises fresh, unembalmed cadavers, which closely simulate the anatomy and feel of an actual patient. Each station will also utilise ultrasound machines to further their procedural skills to the next level. Advanced multimedia will assist the learner in viewing procedures in real time. Join the lab that will assist you with your procedural skills in providing quality care for your patients utilising the latest in procedural techniques. The morning and afternoon labs are slightly different as the procedures performed can include surgical airway, percutaneous tracheostomy, venous access, intraosseous access, resuscitative thoracotomy, lateral canthotomy, venous cut-down and much more.
