The program has 24 two-hour virtaul instructor-led training modules and covers areas of critical care transport. This course is nationally accredited by CAPCE (F5) and is also approved by the Board for Critical Care and Transport Paramedic Certification (BCCTPC).
This course is designed to prepare healthcare providers to provide advanced critical care during inter-facility transports, including performing advanced clinical patient assessments and providing invasive care beyond the standard scope of advanced pre-hospital care. The course includes training on modes of transport, flight physiology, central venous lines, expanded pharmacologic formulary, interpretation of laboratory data, 12-lead ECG interpretation, monitoring and maintaining and IABP, and hemodynamic monitoring. Special areas of focus include transfer considerations (including safety, patient packaging and practice in a closely confined space) and airway and ventilation management (including surgical airways and ventilators, CPAP and BiPAP, thoracotomy, and chest drainage maintenance).
This course will prepare the student, upon successful completion, to take the Critical Care Paramedic and or Flight Paramedic Certification Exam offered by the BCCTPC.
