Hemodynamic Day is incorporated into the Critical Care Nursing course. Participants who wish to join the group should have previous clinical experience in at least Tele or Progressive Care areas. Concepts discussed are about blood motion and equilibrium.
The day’s activities include a three-hour lecture/presentation on cardiac and pulmonary anatomy & physiology as they relate to central lines. Then participants rotate to hands-on skills stations for arterial lines, pulmonary artery catheters, central venous lines and cardiac output. Nursing care, assessments, interventions and outcomes are correlated with what is observed on the monitors.
This is not a beginning nursing course. In order to optimize learning we ask participants to have reviewed tutorials or articles on Hemodynamic Monitoring. To receive the certificate, the participant must attend the full day’s activities.
