Join CSDS’ new online courses in Defibrillation and more

The following courses are offered at no cost and present a short, yet insightful format.

Defibrillation and Other Uses for a Defibrillator (DEFIB)

Defibrillation is a critical procedure used in medical emergencies for patients experiencing ventricular fibrillation or pulseless ventricular tachycardia. Immediate defibrillation is vital for the patient’s survival, making this course a must for advanced life support understanding. Defibrillation and Other Uses for a Defibrillation (DEFIB) covers correctly placing pads, manual defibrillation, cardioversion, pacing, and safe defibrillator operation.

Monitoring Equipment (ME)

Electrocardiography, blood pressure measurement, pulse oximetry, and capnography are integral to advanced life support. Monitoring Equipment (ME) delves into the usage of these monitoring tools, and successful completion empowers learners to demonstrate their knowledge of correct electrode placement for three and five-lead ECG electrodes.

IV Iron Administration and Management (IVIRON-A)

The IV Iron Administration course is designed for individuals who administer intravenous iron and oversee the monitoring process during such administrations. This course covers various available iron formulations, tools to ensure safe administrations, best practices for cannulation, monitoring requirements for IV iron administration, and the necessary steps to take in case of a potential extravasation incident.
