Pediatric ICU Scenarios

Overview:

This course is intended to teach the learner basic and advanced skills used in critical care simulating real ICU situations and how to deal with it. The course conducted in a multidisciplinary approach where the team learns crew resource management techniques, communication skills and clinical guidelines of selected ICU conditions. Scenarios taken from real cases are simulated in an immersive environment utilizing high fidelity manikins.

Objectives:

Upon completion of the course, the participant will be able to:

  • Demonstrate effective skills in communication in critical care environment.
  • Perform advanced critical care techniques in simulated scenarios.
  • Demonstrate proper use of clinical guidelines in critical care.
  • Demonstrate clinical decisions used that correlate with various critical care protocols including critical care bundles.

Duration:

The course is one day course and is conducted one time every year.

Number of instructors/trainees/capacity of the program:

The course maximum capacity is 20 candidates; they will be supervised by one course director and four instructors.

Program design:

Our simulation program combines evidence-based medicine with technologically advanced simulation education techniques and hands-on learning to provide advanced, hands-on, clinical education experiences for participants from a wide scope of practices, Integrate a variety of task-trainers, low- and high-fidelity simulators, and actual medical devices to provide optimal learning opportunities.

The course uses audiovisual tools to enhance presentations and record the events. Simulated critically ill patient’s room (i.e. PICU) fully equipped with the needed equipment and high fidelity manikins.

Admission criteria:

  • Practicing PICU and Anesthesia Physicians.
  • Residents and fellows in PICU, Pediatrics, Emergency Medicine & Anesthesia.
