BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the fall 2021 term as informed by BC Public Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.
A guided learning course addressing nursing care when an infant or child faces respiratory and/or cardiac arrest. Using a case study format, students have the opportunity to develop skills in critical thinking, systematic inquiry and collaboration as they focus on anticipation and prevention in potential and actual arrest situations.
This course isn't currently offered through BCIT Part-time Studies. Please check back next term or subscribe to receive email updates.
As licensed health care practitioners, all learners will practice in accordance with professional standards of practice throughout the course. In this course, learners will have opportunities to use the processes of critical thinking, systematic inquiry, communication, collaboration, leadership and professionalism. Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to:
Integrate principles of growth and development, knowledge of anatomy and physiology and familycentered care in the assessment and care of pediatric patients at risk for respiratory and/or circulatory failure.
Use knowledge of unique pediatric anatomy and pathophysiology, clinical presentation and comprehensive assessment to critically analyze data, form and prioritize conclusions and plan immediate nursing care to optimize oxygen supply and demand for a pediatric patient experiencing facing an actual or potential respiratory or circulatory arrest.
Identify areas for change to improve the preparedness of a selected practice area for the management of pediatric arrest situations.
Use communication and collaboration skills in order to establish and maintain partnerships with an inter- professional team, families, and pediatric patients during a respiratory or circulatory arrest.
