A medical emergency - a high acuity low occurrence (HALO) event - can be met with considerable success by those who are able to recognize early trends in deterioration, to mobilize available resources and to intervene with priority-focused agility and flexibility
Contrary to expectations, most medical emergencies happen in non-critical care areas. Health care providers in these settings are faced with acute emergencies often without the benefit of recent practice or proven skills to respond with agility. TEAM PRIME - primary response in medical emergencies - helps build this expertise.See Available Dates
Medical emergency response and resuscitation in non-critical care areas is deemed a high-priority focus for core skill development.
Priority-driven core skills can make all the difference. Build on current abilities with a 3-step model to act with speed and grace.
Ample practice with high acuity low occurrence (HALO) emergency events is reinforced with relevant scenario practice.
Specific actions taken upstream in emergency prevention and in the first 10 minutes of emergencies offer the greatest benefits to patient protection and survivability.
Early recognition, rapid mobilization and priority-driven interventions in emergencies are wrapped in a 3 step model for efficient, effective response.
