ABCDs of Resuscitation - Critically Ill Patient (2021)

How we approach the management of the seriously ill or injured patient in the first few minutes may significantly determine their chances of survival, risk for complications, and long-term disability. In seriously ill patients, we are frequently required to commence management of the patient before we have the diagnosis or have had the opportunity to complete a thorough clinical assessment. We begin by considering the process for the immediate assessment and intervention in the seriously ill adult or child and then focus our attention on immediately life threatening problems affecting the airway, breathing and circulation.

This course explores the following topics:

1. Immediate priorities in the assessment and treatment of the critically ill patient

2. Recognition and treatment of airway obstruction

3. Emergency management of the patient with severe respiratory distress

4. Diagnosis and management of the patient with circulatory shock
