  • Dive Medicine Presentation
  • March 20
  • Dive Medicine Presentation Hosted by Men in Nursing –
    March 20, 12:30 – 1:30 p.m., Room 320

    Anyone interested in diving of any type (SCUBA, Surface supplied, or Rebreather) must have basic knowledge of diving related illness and injuries. In this presentation I will cover some of the more common illnesses such as decompression sickness, pulmonary over inflation syndromes (POIS)- Arterial gas embolisms, Pneumothorax, mediastinal/subcutaneous emphysema, and vertigo. I will also cover some of the gas laws that are directly related to diving such as Boyles law and Henrys law. Knowledge of the signs and symptoms of these illnesses/injuries can be lifesaving if recognized and treated promptly.
  • Advance Care Planning Workshop
  • March 20
  • Advance Care Planning Workshop

    Hosted by Critical Care and Palliative Care Interest Groups

    Have you ever found yourself at a loss of words when talking about death? Do you know how to handle your patient's end of life wishes? Join us for our workshop series to start the conversation on advance directives and advance care planning.

    In critical care settings, one finds themselves with voices lost and conversations about end of life can become a guessing game. Learn more about how to put your feelings about death and end of life in writing and give guidance to your medical team when you’re not able. Learn how to be a more holistic care giver.

    This workshop will be a two-part series presented by Dr. Valerie Cotter, focusing on the importance of advance care planning in the critical care setting. Join us for one or both sessions. Dinner will be provided.
