*To obtain procedural CE, and to maximize a fully hands-on experience, this workshop requires attendees to review approximately one hour of material prior to the session. Instructions are located in your email registration receipt. In addition to meeting ANCC and AANPCB recertification CE credit, all Advanced Procedures Workshops are approved to meet the AANPCB requirement of 30 hours in emergency care procedural skills to be eligible to sit for national ENP certification.
Barkley & Associates reserves the right to reassign attendees to a different Advanced Procedures Workshop time, if needed, to ensure optimal group learning and appropriate faculty to student ratios. In this case, attendees will be notified in advance of alternatives.

Regardless of one’s background in 12 Lead ECG interpretation, this presentation targets all NPs to increase confidence and proficiency in clinical practice. This session begins by reviewing the foundational principles of 12 Lead ECGs and then builds on these to guide the participant in expanding their expertise for identifying a variety of 12 Lead ECG patterns including inferior, septal, anterior, lateral and posterior infarctions.

Most NPs have a basic understanding of x-ray interpretation, but many question the “why and how” of radiology, especially with more complicated patient films. This two-part session takes the participant from a basic understanding of the shades of black and white on an x-ray film to the ability to identify pneumonia, CHF, cardiomegaly, bowel obstruction, spine injuries, Salter Harris fractures, and much more. Within 2 ½ hours, it’s from novice to expert with radiology in acute care!

Hot Topics in Shock Trauma

Unstable patients in shock trauma centers need decisive and immediate care. This CE offering focuses on two forms of treatment that can be used in your own trauma centers: molecular absorbent recirculating system (MARS) therapy for acute liver failure and resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA) therapy. The topics begin with a detailed discussion of when MARS therapy and REBOA therapy are indicated in a patient so that you can feel confident that your patient will benefit from the treatment.

Trauma cases are a challenge for even the most experienced NPs to approach. This CE offering provides you with the skills and confidence you need to handle catastrophic injuries safely and effectively. The presentation begins with a review of the tenets of advanced trauma life support, then guides you through the best practices for assessing and managing cases of cerebrovascular and solid organ injury, as well as retained hemothorax. The content is supported by engaging graphics and case studies, which ensure that you will retain this valuable information.

Fluid Responsiveness and Resuscitation

Successful fluid resuscitation in the acute or critical setting is a crucial step in patient stabilization. The nurse practitioner (NP) who is well-versed in the most current principles governing fluid resuscitation can therefore move confidently during critical situations. By the end of this session, the NP will be able to identify the pathophysiological complications associated with ineffective volume resuscitation in the acutely ill or injured, describe the relevant physiological endpoints for determining euvolemia in various patient populations, and confidently use multiple strategies to optimize resuscitation.

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a complicated but effective tool in improving prognoses for patients in critical care situations. This highly detailed CE offering will prepare you to make efficient decisions about when to safely use ECMO in critical care situations. The technical information in the presentation is supported by realistic case studies and intricate decision trees on when to use ECMO, allowing you to practice your critical discernment skills as you learn. After completing this session, you will be able to understand the criteria for ECMO use and describe ECMO cannulation techniques. You will also be able to evaluate patients supported by ECMO for frequently occurring complications.
