Live Webinar


In the space of one short week, the entire world has been put on high alert. And healthcare workers are at the front line. With a critical role to provide. We hope always to deliver the life-saving interventions needed for the patients entrusted to our care.

Nurses, doctors, respiratory therapists, leaders….we are now nearly constantly bombarded with COVID 19 information from both mainstream media and the various professional societies. How do we filter this overwhelming cascade to do the right things, right now? How do we provide the best patient care during these evolving times? And protect ourselves…and our families?

This presentation provides clear and concrete clinical applications coming from the WHO, the CDC guidelines, and a current summary from the various Emergency Medicine/Critical-Care professional societies – necessary for front-line staff. Together, we will explore how you can apply the very latest clinical best practices to optimize resources and outcomes for your COVID-19 patients. Specific topics will address the unprecedented challenges when it comes to:

  • Patient triage
  • Transport
  • Treatment
  • Infectious disease practice principles
  • Ventilator management strategies….and more!
