The resuscitation stations focus on the initial management of critically ill patients in all age groups, both in the ED and in the out-of-hospital setting. Each participant gets to act as team leader once during each station and as team-member during the other cases. Specifically, the sessions focus on:

  • Team priming according to a so-called ”Sign-In” (an adapted version of the WHO Surgical Safety Checklist Time-Out organized according to the SBAR format)
  • Team communication according to ”closed-loop”
  • Performance of a generic ABCDE
  • Interpretation of bedside tests (blood gases, EKG, ultrasound videos)
  • Recognition and initial management of critical syndromes (e.g. hemorrhagic chock, diabetic ketoacidosis, serotonin syndrome)
