What is CRITICAL CARE IFT all about?
With critical care transport (CCT), the clutch factor bar none is logistics!lo·gis·tics (ləˈjistiks) noun
1. The detailed coordination of a complex operation involving many people, facilities, or supplies.
In order to facilitate safe and successful transport every time you must become a specialist in logistics!
Often you will be tasked with executing complicated transfers on specialty care transport Unit (SCTU). In order for you to facilitate a safe and uneventful transport you must coordinate your team, procure the necessary supplies, have a keen understand of your equipment, and prioritize interventions of what needs to be accomplished right now and what can wait.
To become a specialist in logistics you must practice these skills continuously. The same way like sports teams practice their skills. The time to figure out how to use a certain piece of equipment is not at a bedside of hemodynamically unstable, critically ill patient in the ICU. You need to practice with all of your equipment that is the only way that you will gain proficiency.
My goal with CriticalCareIFT.org website is to provide free high yield video demonstrations, how to tutorials, supporting medical literature, articles to enable you to become a better health care provider for yourself and ultimately for the patients that you will encounter.
