Course Availability

This course is only available to trainees days after purchase. It would need to be repurchased by the trainee if not completed in the allotted time period. This course is no longer available. You will need to repurchase if you wish to take the course again.

Description

A comprehensive course on recognition and management of fluid, electrolyte, and related acid-base problems that are common challenges on the intensive care service. Including:
Body fluid compartments
Maintenance fluid requirements
Therapeutic fluids
Monitoring of fluid replacement
Sample problems

This course on provides in-depth advanced instruction concerning the pharmacotherapeutic management of commonly encountered critical care diseases
Emphasis is placed on the efficacy, safety, and comparative value of drug therapy in this highly specialized practice area
Didactic knowledge of physiology, pharmacology, and drug therapy management is applied to disease states specific to this population
Didactic instruction is combined with practice case studies and interactive discussions concerning critical care pharmacotherapeutic-related issues.

Objectives

On completion of this course the learner will be able to:
1. For each of the following body fluid compartments, list its usual percentage of total body weight and/or its approximate total volume:
a. Total body water (TBW)
b. Extracellular fluid (ECF)
c. Intracellular fluid (ICF)
d. Interstitial fluid
e. Plasma
2. List the approximate total daily fluid input/output that occurs in a healthy patient; state the usual percentage of this total that is readily quantifiable by the reporting of daily "ins and outs"
3. Given a patient's age, weight, and sex, calculate a specific daily maintenance fluid requirement
4. Given either an acute weight change or an elevated serum sodium concentration, estimate a patient's total fluid deficit
5. Compare/contrast colloids vs. crystalloids as therapeutic fluids
6. Compare/contrast intravascular depletion vs. TBW depletion
7. Given a specific patient case, recommend a rational fluid replacement therapy regimen including choice of fluid, the initial rate of infusion, and the length of time over which replacement therapy should be administered
8. Develop a plan to monitor the adequacy and safety of a recommended fluid replacement therapy regimen; describe how each monitoring parameter is expected to change as fluid administration continues
