The Hospitalist and Emergency Procedures CME course is an Internet CME curriculum that will provide current, evidence-based information about the 20 most common bedside procedures performed in the emergency room, intensive care unit, and hospital wards. The Online CME course was completely updated in 2019 and is comprised of 19 online modules that will cover the indications, contraindications, techniques, complications, fluid analysis, and coding of these procedures. Topics covered include informed consent, procedural sedation, central line, intraosseous line, peripheral IV, and arterial line placement, point-of-care ultrasound including E-FAST and RUSH exams, mechanical ventilation, needle decompression, basic suturing, tube thoracostomy, thoracentesis, lumbar puncture, paracentesis, and basic and difficult airway management including video laryngoscopy. Our course teaches you not only how to perform these procedures, but also will teach you how to optimize clinical management using data collected from these various procedures. For example, we will teach you how to analyze CSF, pleural, and ascitic fluid, how to use ultrasound to assess a patient’s hemodynamic profile, and the basics of ventilator management. Additionally, you will have access to a bonus module from 2022 on how to perform procedures in patients with thrombocytopenia, cirrhosis or who are on anticoagulation or antiplatelets.
Planned updates every 12 months will cover any updates in procedural medicine and keep the learner up to date as new techniques and recommendations arise.
