Society of Critical Care Medicine: Fundamental Critical Care Support Obstetrics Course
|Completed Event:||October 5, 2019|
FCCS: OB is a two-day course that covers physiologic changes during pregnancy, specific obstetric medical conditions and appropriate treatment, maternal cardiovascular resuscitation, and airway management of critically ill pregnant patients, as well as appropriate steps in fetal assessment, delivery, and neonatal management. The course is formatted as a series of presentations and skill stations to provide knowledge, guidance for decision-making, and limited practice in some clinical procedures and scenarios. Participants who successfully complete the course will receive a certificate of completion.
The modular nature of the topics allows the presentations and skill stations to be emphasized and ordered in a variety of ways to best meet audience and facility needs. Learners are provided with the FCCS: Obstetrics textbook to read prior to the course. This enables them to come prepared for the pretest and better equipped to participate in course discussions. A posttest at the end of the course will evaluate their knowledge.
