It also serves as a valuable education tool for those entering the field of pediatric critical care. The PFCCS focuses exclusively on fundamental concepts for professional providers who may be involved in the initial management and transfer of critically ill or injured infants and children. PFCCS prepares non-intensivists, nurses, and critical care practitioners to deal with acute deterioration of critically ill pediatric patients. The course also assists the non-intensivist in handling the sudden decline of a previously stable patient and prepares house staff for PICU coverage. Course Objectives: • Prioritize assessment needs for the critically ill or injured infant and child. • Select appropriate diagnostic tests. • Identify and respond to significant changes in the unstable pediatric patient. • Recognize and initiate management of acute life-threatening conditions. • Determine the need for expert consultation and/or patient transfer and prepare for optimal transfer. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
