Date – 5th – 6th March 2021
Venue – Lady Ridgeway Hospital, Colombo
The Emergency life care course is a modular 2 day course that provides an approach to the management of acutely ill patients.
Based on the Australian Emergency Life Support course, it provides a practical reproducible approach termed the “Blue Print" to the management of acutely ill patients in an emergency, ward based or primary care setting.
Using lectures and skills stations with trained ELS instructors, the course covers initial approach, chest pain, seizures, shortness of breath, envenomation and toxicology tailored to the Sri Lankan environment.
Skill stations include airway management, management of cardiac and vascular emergencies, an approach to ECG and CXR’s and an approach to a sick child.
At the end of the course you will be able to demonstrate the “Blue Print” approach to an undifferentiated sick patient and initiate time critical interventions.
Due to the covid restrictions we were compelled to make a few modifications – Day -1 will be running the lectures by foreign and local faculty via the zoom platform. Day-2 skills stations in compliance with full health regulations to minimise the risk of Covid infection.
