Course details

This course introduces the unique and highly specialized area of pediatric critical care nursing. Building on the concepts presented in Pediatric Nursing Theory 1, students work through advanced, complex chronic and acute pediatric critical care patient presentations, while considering children’s growth and development stages and the unique physiology of the different pediatric age groups. Students will continue to develop a deeper level of understanding of pediatric pathophysiology, assessment, and decision making related to a variety of health challenges experienced by the critically ill child or adolescent. In addition, students will explore further comprehensive assessment strategies (e.g., hemodynamic monitoring, arterial blood gas analysis, stress response and neurologic assessment) and strategies employed to optimize oxygen supply and demand balance in the critically ill pediatric patient (e.g., CPAP/BiPAP, haemodynamic monitoring, pain and sedation assessment, and fluid management).Finally students will be challenged to make clinical decisions and plan care for selected critically ill individuals. Family-centred care, relational practice and inter-professional practice, professionalism, communication, collaboration and partnership are core concepts threaded throughout this and all subsequent pediatric critical care courses.
