COVID-19 Critical Care: Understanding and Application

Graham Nimmo, The University of Edinburgh

Learn to manage critical care patients whilst protecting yourself and your peers

“One of the essential qualities of the clinician is interest in humanity: the secret of the care of the patient is in caring for the patient”
Francis W. Peabody, Harvard Medical School 1925

This course will teach you how to effectively care for critically ill patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.

You will learn the daily practice for frontline clinical staff supporting critical care patients with and without COVID-19, and how to apply ventilation and organ support principles to the care of a critically ill coronavirus patient.

Staff and patient safety are paramount. This course will help you to facilitate your own emotional and physical self-care and well-being in this high-stress, high-risk environment.

You will also learn about the required PPE and reflect on the practices necessary to emotionally support yourself and your colleagues.

This course has been designed for frontline clinical staff who are caring for critically ill patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This includes a wide range of healthcare professionals in acute care, from many different clinical speciality backgrounds.

You may have some previous critical care experience or none.

The information will support those refreshing critical care knowledge and skills, newly qualified doctors, those who are upskilling, and those returning to acute clinical services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
