Acute Referral and Management of the Deteriorating Radiology Consult


This is a half day course developed especially for Radiologists who may encounter deteriorating patients within their radiology suite.  The course is a small group hands on course taught by emergency specialists and nurses and covers two major components CPR Basics including assessment and adult and paediatric deteriorating patient scenarios.

CPR component combines an online theory pre-reading and pre-test MCQ so your work time is not wasted with face to face theory teaching.  The 1.5hr CPR face to face component is all hands on – initially technique teaching sessions and then individual assessment to sign of CPR competency by Qualified ALS and APLS instructors teaching the eduAcute CPR module

The 2.5hrs of hands on Scenarios allow participants to practice their approach to the deteriorating patient until help arrives.  We take you through how to prioritise early treatment in cases you may encounter, how to best use the resources you have until more help arrives and how to effectively and efficiently refer these patients to ongoing care providers.

The scenarios are all chosen from cases that have deteriorated previously in this environment e.g. anaphylaxis, medication side effects and Patients with underlying medical conditions that may cause them to collapse or generally misbehave whilst attending for their scans.

As all our mannequins are mobile, courses can be run at your facility to increase the realness of the scenarios.  You will need to provide a single room to accommodate initial practical sessions and then the clinical environment to stage the scenarios.  Venues would need to fill at least 80% of registrations (either internally or externally) and depending on distance there may be a small fee for travel and freight of mannequins and equipment.  Please contact us if you wish to receive a quote to run this course at your venue.
