Course objectives
The aim of this practice is to acquaint the student with principles of advanced cardiopulmonary resuscitation and critically ill patients management.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the practice the student will be able to
identify the patient with organ dysfunction
initiate the basic steps to diagnosis and treatment of critically ill patients
perform advanced cardiopulmonary resuscitation
  • INTESIVE CARE MEDICINE- PRACTICE- two weeks intensive course
  • MONDAY: We will present you the simulators, ICUs and other areas of The Simulation Centre during the first day of the practice from Intensive Care Medicine. The teachers and technicians of the centre will guide you there. Then, we wil focus on the initial approach to the critical ill patient according to the ABCDE approach. You will try this approach on our simulators.
  • TUESDAY: We will train basic skills focused on airway management and advanced life support in adults, the rules of safe defibrillation including, on the second day of the practice. You will know several oxygen delivery systems after this practice.
  • WEDNESDAY: You will visit Department of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care at St. Ann's University Hospital Brno on the third day. You will repeat initial approach to the critical ill patient during the practice. The rules of organ donation program, including the brain death diagnosis and care for potential organ donors, are part of this practice.
  • THURSDAY: You will learn about basic steps in the diagnosis and treatment of some arrhythmias on thursday. We will focus on the unstable atrila fibrillation, as the most common tachyarrhythmias, but also the management of the bradyarrhythmias. The last topic of this practice is acute pulmonary edema, its diagnosis and treatment.
  • FRIDAY: During this lesson, you will undergo three high fidelity simulations in SIMU. Structured debriefing will follow each of those simulations. The theme of this lesson will be acute respiratory failure and shock.
  • MONDAY: On the sixth day, you will visit the Department of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care at University Hospital Brno in Bohunice. You will repeat the initial approach to the critically ill patient during the practice. The basics of acid-base and electrolytes disorders are part of this practice.
  • TUESDAY: During this lesson, you will undergo three high fidelity simulations in SIMU. Structured debriefing will follow each of those simulations. The theme of this lesson will be PALS (paediatric advanced life support), seizures, intoxication.
  • WEDNESDAY: In today's practice, you will discuss various topics related to ICU nutrition, acute liver failure, palliative care and End of Life Decision (EOLD) in the debriefing room in SIMU.
  • THURSDAY: In today's practice you will discuss the topic of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) and Renal Replacement Therapy (RRT). Another topic is Multiple Organ Dysfunction Syndrome (MODS). This day will be spent in the Department of anesthesiology and intensive care medicine, University hospital Brno, thus part of the teaching will also take place at the bedside of a patient.
  • FRIDAY: In today's exercise, you'll be back at Simulation center to solve high-fidelity simulations that will test everything you've learned. Within these simulations, you will encounter several life-threatening conditions that await your solution.
