We are pleased to announce the online course “WHO Critical Care Severe Acute Respiratory Infection Training Short Course” on OpenWHO. You can access the course through the following link: https://openwho.org/courses/severe-acut ... -infection

The WHO Critical Care Training Short Course for Severe Acute Respiratory Infection (SARI) includes content on clinical management of patients with a severe acute respiratory infection.

This course is intended for clinicians who are working in intensive care units (ICUs) in low and middle-income countries and managing adult and pediatric patients with severe forms of acute respiratory infection (SARI), including severe pneumonia, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), sepsis and septic shock. It is a hands-on practical guide to be used by health care professionals involved in critical care management during outbreaks of influenza virus (seasonal) human infection due avian influenza virus (H5N1, H7N9), MERS-CoV, nCoV or other emerging respiratory viral epidemics.

By the end of this course, participants should:

Possess some of the necessary tools that can be used to care for the critically ill patient from hospital entry to hospital discharge.
There are 14 modules, as follows:

Module 1: Introduction to nCoV and IPC
Module 2: Clinical Syndromes and Pathophysiology of Sepsis and ARDS
Module 3: Triage
Module 4: Monitoring
Module 5: Diagnostics
Module 6: Oxygen Therapy
Module 7: Antimicrobials
Module 8: Sepsis
Module 9: Mechanical Ventilation
Module 10: Sedation
Module 11: Best Practices to Prevent Complications
Module 12: Liberation from Mechanical Ventilation
Module 13: Quality in Critical Care
Module 14: Pandemic Preparedness and Ethical Considerations
The course will take approximately 10 hours to finish.

Hoping to count you among the participants, the OpenWHO team wishes you a successful training!
