Business meeting will begin at 630pm followed by the CCU program at 7pm.
Hands on training for cardiopulmonary assessment will be performed with use of lab partners and simulation lab equipment. Normal and abnormal function will be discussed as well as development of treatment plan.
1. Explain the purpose and clinical value of performing a static and dynamic physical assessment, including auscultation, of the cardiopulmonary system.
2. Demonstrate the ability to perform a systematic static and dynamic cardiopulmonary examination on a lab partner or SIM lab model that encompasses all regions including, but not limited to:
a. inspection of the head, neck, chest and extremities.
c. palpation of pulses including dorsalis pedis, brachial, carotid, femoral, posterior tibial
d. vital signs.
3. Describe normal and abnormal cardiopulmonary findings on an apparently healthy adult subject and using SIM lab models during cardiopulmonary assessment.
4. Utilizing SIM lab case scenarios, discuss proper clinical courses of action for patients with cardiopulmonary dysfunction.
