Descritpion:
Updated with the latest knowledge in pediatric critical care, this two-day comprehensive course addresses fundamental management principles for the first 24 hours of post-resuscitation management of the critically ill pediatric patient until transfer or appropriate critical care consultation can be arranged. 

Now in it's newly released second edition, Pediatric Fundamental Critical Care Support (PFCCS) joins SCCM's long-running Fundamental Critical Care Support (FCCS) course, which was launched in the mid-1990s, as resources for those interested in learning to recognize critical illness and initiate care for the critically ill pediatric patient in the absence of an intensivist. It also serves as a valuable education tool for those entering the field of pediatric critical care. While FCCS addresses both adult and pediatric issues, its primary focus is the adult patient. PFCCS focuses exclusively on fundamental  concepts for professional providers who may be involved in the initial management and transfer of critically ill or injured infants and children.

PFCCS prepares non-intensivists, nurses, and critical care practitioners to deal with acute deterioration of critically ill pediatric patients. The course also assists the non-intensivist in handling the sudden decline of a previously stable patient and prepares house staff for PICU coverage.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Prioritize assessment needs for the critically ill or injured infant and child.
  2. Select appropriate diagnostic tests.
  3. Identify and respond to significant changes in the unstable pediatric patient.
  4. Recognize and initiate management of acute life-threatening conditions.
  5. Determine the need for expert consultation and/or patient transfer and prepare for optimal transfer.
