1 hour Audio and Power Point Presentation

Recorded September 25, 2015

The course helps providers identify the most difficult ED patient: The well-appearing patient who has a life-threatening process occurring. It uses a unique 2 step approach to identify concerning patients with abnormal vital signs or patients with a life-threatening chief complaint and lack of definitive diagnosis. When the patient is identified, there are 3 actions: Revisit, record, recruit. The presentation is interactive with actual cases and panels to assess the initial evaluation and is divided into 3 parts:
1. How to spot
2. Why we don’t spot
3. What happens when we don’t spot
