Hypothermia and Resuscitation Training Institute at Penn (HART)
Registration will open shortly for the fall offering of our course, which will be held October 20-21, 2014 in Philadelphia, PA.
Registration materials will be posted here as soon as they are available.
Hypothermia and Resuscitation Training Institute at Penn (HART) is an intensive two-day "boot camp" designed to educate relevant care providers on in-hospital care of cardiac arrest patients, most specifically to teach about post-arrest care, including the use of therapeutic temperature management (TTM), cardiac catheterization, internal cardiac defibrillator (ICD) consideration and advanced ICU care. In addition to scholarly presentation and discussions regarding therapuetic temperature management usage, a key goal is to help each attendee explore the various methods and protocols currently being used around the country and to have hands-on technical experience with the equipment used, as well as CPR "challenge" simulations. By the conclusion of the course, each attendee will have a firm grasp of developing and implementing a comprehensive in-hospital high quality resuscitation program.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn through:
- Practical, intensive training and education sessions:
The Hypothermia and Resuscitation Training Institute at Penn (HART) is a two-day "boot camp" that offers didactic and hands-on training in post-resuscitation care. It is a first-of-its-kind training course targeted at hospital-based resuscitation champions. The small class size allows for close interaction between participants and faculty as well as providing crucial hands-on time with the cooling devices and post-resuscitation protocol materials.
- Hands-on training using state-of-the-art medical simulation equipment:
We use realistic human patient simulators and utilize this remarkable technology to provide the best possible instruction for participants.
