Pediatric Fundamental Critical Care Course
October 27-29, 2016
NHRMC Auditorium

PFCCS is an intense 2-day course for anyone called upon to stabilize critically ill children whether on the pediatric ward, in the ICU, or in an emergency department and EMS/critical care transport teams.

PFCCS prepares the non-Intensivist, nurse, or other critical care practitioner to deal with the acute deterioration of a critically ill child. The course also assists the non-Intensivist in handling the sudden decline of a previously stable pediatric patient.

PFCCS is an accredited course for physician hospitalists, ER physicians, surgeons, resident physicians, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, respiratory therapists, and EMS/critical care transport teams.


PFCCS Program Objectives
· Prioritize assessment needs for the critically ill or injured infant and child
· Identify and respond to significant changes in the unstable pediatric patient
· Recognize and initiate management of acute life-threatening conditions
· Determine the need for expert consultation and/or patient transfer

PFCCS Program Background
The Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) began offering the Pediatric Fundamental Critical Care
Support (PFCCS) course in 2008. The goal of this curriculum is to introduce principles important in the initial care of critically ill or injured pediatric patient s to physicians, nurses, and other healthcare providers who are not skilled in pediatric critical care but who must care for such a patient in anticipation of the arrival of a pediatric Intensivist or pending transfer of the patient to a more suitable facility.

The PFCCS course is an in-depth and comprehensive program aimed at improving pediatric care.
Using the same hands-on, high-quality approach as Fundamental Critical Care Support (FCCS), this program focuses intensely on the pediatric population. PFCCS accomplishes these goals by providing a balance of didactic lectures and hands-on skill stations while building on the participant’s basic pediatric knowledge. Those who have completed Basic Life Support (BLS) and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) or their equivalents will benefit from PFCCS, because much of the material covers the transition from initial patient resuscitation to arrival in the intensive care unit. (PFCCS picks up where these courses conclude.) Some of the unique features of the course include interactive case scenario–based lectures and skill stations specific to critically ill or injured children.
