Objectives

  1. Differentiate clinical indications for various IV fluids, when each is considered most effective, and possible pitfalls relative to presenting pathology and projected clinical course. 
  2. Describe how pressors work and how and when to use them in critical care. 
  3. Describe how inotropes work and how to use them in conjunction with pressors to optimize cardiac output and cerebral perfusion pressure in various shock states. 
  4. Differentiate between blood products in terms of contents, clinical indications and monitoring parameters. 

Outline

  • IV Fluids - The Right One for the Situation- There are NO “one size fits all” “cookie cutter” solutions!  IV fluids are medications and like ALL medications, we need to make sure we are tailoring treatments to the patient’s unique individual needs!  Learn HOW to choose WHAT to give, WHEN, and WHY. 
  • Pressors and Inotropes - Their Action & Use- Master the Molecular Biology behind the pharmacology of optimizing cardiac output and cerebral perfusion. Learn First Principles and let them guide you.  Once you have mastered the physiology, treating the PATHO-physiology becomes intuitive!  
  • Blood Products! FFP, Cryoprecipitate, Clotting Factor Concentrates, Platelets, and PRBCs. Learn the contents of various blood products, clinical indications, pearls, and pitfalls, as well as sequelae such as transfusion reactions, TACO, and TRALI.  

Target Audience

  • Nurses
  • Nurse Practitioners
  • Physician Assistants
