This subject advances students’ skills in the application of the pathophysiology of critical illness and traumatic injury using a range of authentic, contemporary adult and paediatric case scenarios. Students evaluate complex patient data to inform clinical decision making and the management of care of people with life-threatening conditions, injuries and complications. Students explore and integrate the use of therapeutic interventions including mechanical ventilation, advanced pharmacological and haemodynamic support in the provision of person and family centred care in the Australian context.
