Diabetic Ketoacidosis

In this course, you’ll learn more about this disordered metabolic state and its most common characteristics, including its association with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Also explore treatment for diabetic ketoacidosis and guidelines, especially for children and teens with Type 1 diabetes who are at greater risk of death with DKA. Proficiency in managing the inpatient hyperglycemic spectrum is emphasized. This module provides guidelines for standardizing care in Diabetic Ketoacidosis management.

 

Acute Myocardial Infarction

Course content includes management of acute myocardial infarction. As the world’s leading cause of death, this module addresses how to manage MI in the inpatient hospitalist program service, especially acute myocardial infarction treatment. Get up to speed on determining between myocardial infarction types and myocardial injury.

 

Acute Respiratory Failure

The focus of this module is to examine the physiologic mechanisms of respiratory failure. This includes acute respiratory failure symptoms and indicators, acute vs chronic respiratory failure, how to develop an acute respiratory failure care plan, as well as how to most successfully manage it in your Hospitalist program.

 

Hypertensive Emergencies

A key element of a successful hospitalist program is the treatment of hypertensive emergencies. Understanding differences between hypertensive urgency vs emergency is imperative. This module thus provides stratification guidelines and management of hypertensive emergencies.

 

Pneumonia

This area of the medical field has shown vast improvement in post hospitalization patient outcomes in the past decade. Inpatient treatment of pneumonia is most likely the reason for this success. This course addresses diagnosing pneumonia, treatment, and management of pneumonia within hospitalist settings.

 

Pulmonary Embolism

Symptoms of pulmonary embolism can be evasive which spurred research for this thrombotic complication by PERT. This examination provides current guidelines for managing and preventing pulmonary embolism in the hospital. You’ll learn to distinguish severity levels and corresponding treatment for pulmonary embolism, from evidence-based practices in the acute care setting.

 

Sepsis

Sepsis training courses and sepsis education for nurses is a critical component of hospitalist care. Commonly used techniques for managing sepsis are explored and an in-depth look into sepsis care best practices provides all the information you’ll need to manage this dangerous condition.

 

Electrolyte Disturbances

A frequent cause of hospital admission is electrolyte abnormalities. The fine art of managing fluids and electrolytes is a dynamic process. This course provides electrolyte imbalance charts and guidelines for managing the major electrolytes associated with chronic kidney disease and more.

 

Hyperglycemic Hyperosmotic Syndrome

One of the most important components of managing the care of most hospitalist patients is blood glucose levels. This course examines Hyperglycemic Hyperosmotic Syndrome treatment and the standardization of managing the inpatient hyperglycemic spectrum.

 

If you’re a FNP or ACNP, working in a hospitalist setting, you know that staying current on common hospital admitting conditions is crucial in providing the best care for your patients. This is especially important with today’s COVID-19 crisis, when differentiating between Covid-19 and other conditions is imperative.
