Key COVID-19 Clinical Updates and Lessons Learned So Far
This free MedCram course, seen here, was originally recorded on April 30, 2020 and took an in-depth look at the novel coronavirus since it started. The faculty for this activity was Roger Seheult, MD who is certified in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary Diseases, Critical Care Medicine and Sleep Medicine through the American Board of Internal Medicine. Dr. Seheult synthesized the key developments about COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2 pathophysiology, transmission, prevention, treatment options & trials, data trends, and responses. “Key COVID-19 Clinical Updates and Lessons Learned So Far” is a collaborative effort between Continuing Education Company and MedCram.com.
COVID-19 ABG Results: Learn or Review Arterial Blood Gas Interpretation
This free MedCram course, seen here, explains a clear understanding of acid-base disorders in COVID-19 patients. Acid-base disturbances are common – especially in patients with severe viral infections such as COVID-19. The accurate interpretation of lab tests in patients with acid-base problems is key to managing patients in critical condition.
Point of Care COVID-19 Diagnosis and Monitoring with Lung Ultrasound
This free MedCram course, accessible here, explains why lung ultrasound rivals a CT scan for accurate diagnosis and monitoring of coronavirus infection from the SARS-CoV-2 virus. This concise video series (under one hour in length) will quickly review the core principles of lung ultrasound and progresses to COVID-19 specific findings.
Coronavirus Pandemic (COVID-19) Updates Explained Clearly
This free MedCram course, accessible here, provides frequent updates for clinicians on the latest research, data and prevention strategies. Dr. Seheult illustrates key developments about COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2 pathophysiology, transmission, prevention, treatment options & trials, vaccine advances, data trends, as well as the response from governments, hospitals, and communities.
Please note that each video was produced with the best information MedCram could access at the time of recording. That said, we believe each video contains concepts that have enduring value and reviewing how the response to COVID-19 has progressed over time may be of interest to you as well.
COVID-19 Ventilator Course: Learn or Review Mechanical Ventilation
This free MedCram course is accessible here. As more clinicians may be needed in critical care settings, this is a review of the essential skills of ventilation management. As communities across the world are facing or preparing for increasing numbers of patients in respiratory distress from COVID-19, MedCram has packaged this video series for clinicians and hospitals on the front lines.
We understand that medical professionals (and students) that don’t have significant experience with mechanical ventilation may be called upon to help ventilator management teams in critical care settings. And clinicians with extensive ventilator experience may want a refresher or a tool to aid in teaching mechanical ventilation strategies to other clinicians.
This video series is a collection of previously recorded MedCram videos on mechanical ventilation with the addition of some COVID-19 specific videos.
