The Shock Course was designed specifically for the rural health care practitioner. Participants will review the management of the hemodynamically unstable patient and discuss the specific steps that must be taken by each member of the health care team in the workup and treatment of these patients. It is a case-based course that is interactive, with lots of hands-on time practicing with ultrasound, as well as central line insertion and management. Instructors are all rural physicians and nurses with experience in critical care.
