This course is to follow the Comprehensive Suture Training Workshop at Marriott Chicago Northwest at 4800 Hoffman Blvd in Hoffman Estates, IL on Feb 24, 2019.
Have you ever wanted to place a chest tube? Perhaps it's something you might do in your job but haven't had any experience and want to try before doing it on a real patient. Or, perhaps you will never do this in your role, but you have always wanted to try from the driver's seat. This course is for you both. This course will give the learner (target audience are nurses, nurse practitioners, PAs, paramedics) a 1:1 experience with chest tube insertion and thoracentesis including:
Rib space selection and landmarks
Blunt and Trocar tube insertion
Post-procedure management and documentation
ALL FROM THE DRIVERS SEAT.
That's, right. It doesn't matter what your role allows, here you get to do it all.
Includes 3 hours of approved nursing continuing education credit.
