What is 

?

HIC is an intense one day program focused explicitly on advanced vascular access and the management of critically ill, hypotensive patients. HIC combines lectures with small group, hands on sessions using simulation mannequins.

The case-based lectures help you appreciate when to consider central lines and why we use the pressors we do.

The hands-on sessions tell you the 'how' - you will throw in line after line, see the value of ultrasound, practice IO insertion and review transvenous pacemaker insertion.

By the end of the course, you will have mastered not only the skill of central line insertion, but also the 'where, when, why and hows' of caring for critically ill patients. Your confidence in managing these sick, hypotensive patients will be significantly greater by end of the day.

 

Instructors are all emergency physicians with critical care expertise selected for their clinical and teaching excellence.
