Critical care practice & related pharmacotherapy encompasses a wide variety of disease states.

Our clinical topics will highlight Contemporary Management of Cardiogenic Shock ”, Prothrombin Complex Concentrates and Anticoagulation, “Dispelling Myths of the Intensive Care Unit,” “Making Sense of the Alphabet Soup of Calcium Channel Blocker and Beta Blocker Overdoses,” “Management of Elevated Intracranial Pressure,” “Antibiotic dosing in pediatric critical illness,” “Management of metabolic crisis in children with an inborn error of metabolism (IEM),” “Ethical considerations in pediatric resuscitation and clinical practice,” and NICU and PICU Pearls among others hot topics.
