PRLog - Dec. 18, 2012 - VENTURA, Calif. -- Hospital Procedures Consultants (HPC) is a company dedicated to providing quality, comprehensive, evidence-based procedural education to emergency and hospitalist healthcare providers. HPC has already established itself as the premier provider of Hospital Procedures CME courses.
HPC now wants to show its support to our military and our government by offering a $250 discount off all our courses to all military and government-affiliated clinicians (MDs, DOs, NPs, and PAs). This is our way of saying "Thanks" to our men and women in uniform and to our government-affiliated clinicians (e.g., IHS or VA clinicians).
Our Hospitalist and Emergency Procedures courses are limited to 42 students to allow ample hands-on instruction and individualized education with the goal that every student develops the knowledge and skills necessary to begin performing these procedures at their respective hospitals.
The course will provide 17 hours of Category 1 CME and will cover the following procedures: femoral line placement, subclavian line placement, internal jugular line placement, intraosseous line placement, venous cutdowns, arterial line placement, mechanical ventilation, informed consent, procedural sedation, tube thoracostomy, thoracentesis, lumbar puncture, paracentesis, endotracheal intubation, Glidescope intubation, laryngeal mask airway placement, King tube placement, needle decompression and 4 hours of hands-on ultrasound training on human models (including learning the RUSH and E-FAST exams). The course will also give you hands-on training in ultrasound-guided central line placement, ultrasound-guided lumbar punctures, ultrasound-guided paracentesis, and ultrasound-guided thoracentesis.
