Specialist-Led Skills Training

Practical training delivered by Intensivists

The sessions cover:

  • Advanced haemodynamics
  • Intra-aortic baloon pumps
  • Pacemakers and pacing pulmonary artery catheters
  • Mechanical ventilation
  • Tracheostomy
  • Bronchoscopy
  • Difficult airway management
  • Chest drain insertion and troubleshooting
  • Neuro-imaging
  • Subarachnoid haemorrhage
  • Renal replacement therapy
  • Evidence based medicine
  • Microbiology
  • Nutrition
  • Toxicology
  • Simulation training

When and where?

Study days are run on eight Wednesdays a year, between 10am and 1:30pm, with a coffee break half way through.

They take place in the ICU at RNSH.
