ED Staff Education Meeting
The content provided in the staff education meeting will help address gaps in knowledge related to nursing care of patients who present with burn injuries as well as those requiring epinephrine drips. ED nurses care for patients with a variety of emergent issues. Caring for patients with burns can be challenging since they are typically treated at a burn center. In addition, caring for critically ill patients requiring vasoactive medications (specifically epinephrine drips) in the Emergency Department can be challenging as they require many resources and rapid intervention.
Upon completion of this course, :
1. Learners will be able calculate total body surface area involved in a burn injury
2. Learners will be able to calculate fluid resuscitation for burn patients using the Parkland formula.
3. Learners will be able to define the process for preparing and administering epinephrine drips for critically ill/injured children.
