About the course

Emergency and Critical Care is becoming ever more advanced as a speciality with more drugs, equipment and procedures becoming available every day. While those advances can make a difference for a number of patients, a sound knowledge of the fundamentals, knowing what to do when, makes far more difference in the majority of cases. On this course we'll focus on those fundamentals - what can be sensibly achieved in a general practice setting with a typical owner budget to maximise the outcome for your emergency patients.

What you'll learn:

  • How to recognise emergency problems and prioritise their treatment
  • How to stabilise patients with shock
  • How to diagnose and treat dyspnoeic patients
  • Tips for managing neurological emergencies
  • How to perform effective CPR
  • How to make decisions in acute abdominal disease
  • How to do all of the above on a budget!
