One of the most important elements of procedural sedation is the understanding that sedation is not a constant--it is a continuum. The use of sedation drugs outside of the operating room has expanded dramatically in recent years and it is becoming increasingly important for the non-anesthesiologist healthcare professional to fully understand every aspect of procedural sedation.

Transfusions of blood and blood products can save the lives of patients who need them. For most patients who need blood or blood products after injury or because of disease, the potential benefits far outweigh risks. When healthcare staff are educated and trained, risks are mitigated. Well-trained staff: • Follow best practices to minimize risks and help prevent transfusion problems • Recognize problems when they do occur • Respond to problems quickly and effectively This course focuses on hands-on clinical issues, such as: • How to give blood products safely • How to recognize and respond to transfusion problems

Although central line-associated bloodstream infections have decreased significantly over the past several years, they remain a serious threat to the well-being of patients who have them, increasing hospital stays and mortality. They consume a tremendous amount of resources and remain a huge financial burden to payers. About 30,000 central line infections still occur each year in the United States. This course has been designed to help you understand best practices in preventing CLABSI, so that you can contribute to improved patient outcomes.

Capnography is a powerful field assessment tool for EMS providers. It is useful on intubated and conscious patients, and important as a prehospital triage and treatment guiding tool. Capnography greatly assists EMS providers develop, monitor and modify patient care plans, by providing immediate breath-to-breath information about the patient's respiratory status. Capnography offers a quantitative numerical reading and graphic waveform that measures, illustrates and documents a patient’s exhaled CO2 at the point in the respiratory cycle in which CO2 is highest (i.e., EtCO2). An elevated EtCO2 level is typically an indication of hypoventilation or increased metabolic activity. A low exhaled CO2 level may be an indication of hyperventilation, decreased cardiac output or poor pulmonary perfusion, which can occur in shock. The "normal" capnography waveform has a specific shape and can be differentiated from "abnormal" capnography waveforms. This course will provide the learner with basic information about respiratory anatomy and physiology, the principles of capnography and capnographic waveforms.

Healthcare-associated infections are among the most common complications during inpatient stays and are a threat to patient safety. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 1 in 25 hospitalized patients acquires an infection while hospitalized. As a result, tens of thousands of lives are lost each year and costs are in the billions of dollars. Fortunately, best practice approaches have significantly reduced many of the most common infections. This course has been designed to help you to work toward a continued decrease in HAIs—and ideally their elimination—by reviewing the: • Causes • Risk factors • Current evidence-based practice strategies
