Due to the large amount of lecture topics I now have to chose from (45 to date) I have had to resort to just providing a pdf of my List of Topics.
Also due to the large amount of lecture topics, I have retired a few of the ones that haven't been picked up by conferences in the last couple of years. That doesn't mean we can't bring them out of retirement though! Shoot us a message and let us know what you are looking for: we may already have one ready to update and refresh for your class/conference needs.
ALL topics have 30 and 60 minute options available. A few have 90 minute options and are indicated on the list.
This list is continually being updated and posted so make sure and check in often to see what might have changed. The newest releases will be listed at the top of the list on this page as well as under the "Coming Soon" tab.
Please note that the list above also contains a few additional nursing topics that have been asked about in the past. ESI and Basic Cardiology are designed for new ER nurses.
New for 2021 The Final Cut: Field Amputations While being faced with doing a field amputation is considered rare, caring for a patient who has already cut off a limb in an accident is common and most of us have a couple of these types of calls under our belt already. We will review ALL aspects of an amputation including mechanism of injury, recovering a limb, partial versus complete amputations, and what criteria is considered IF you were, in fact, faced with the possibility of doing the amputation yourself.
Short Circuit: Seizures We will review the newest seizure classification as well as treatment protocols and Seizure mimics include pseudo-seizures and Pseudo Seizures (hint, there IS a difference)
Just the Facts: COVID COVID, Corona, “The Virus” … we are all tired of hearing about it and even more overwhelmed at trying to sift through the information. What is correct? What is a conspiracy theory? Why are we hearing conflicting information from the same “credible” sources? WHEN WILL THIS END? In this presentation, we are going to focus on the pathophysiology of how this virus attacks the body: Why are the lungs and kidneys the most common body system that is being affected? And what about the loss of taste and smell?!
Time is Brain: Stroke Assessment and Treatment Guidelines Based on the 2020 AHA guidelines for CVA recognition and treatment, we will review the different types of strokes as well as the different assessments you will find based on what portion of the brain a stroke is effecting. Assessment, recognition and timely decision making as to where we will transport a patient for intervention is discussed.
The Right Stuff: Critical Thinking Application ALS version (1 hour) Being able to apply critical care knowledge to actual cases will help reinforce your knowledge and help “work out the kinks” of critical thinking and differential diagnosis. In this presentation, you will see actual case studies of patients, some with a lot of detail and some with very little detail for you to go on. From this, you must decide what is wrong with the patient, and what YOU need to do to improve the patient’s outcome. ** Keep in mind this is an ALS version. There is a critical care version available also.
