Program Overview & Target Audience:

Hypothermia and Resuscitation Training Institute at Penn (HART) is an intensive two-day “boot camp” designed to educate relevant care providers on the use of targeted temperature management in critical illness and post-arrest and resuscitation care, as well as CPR quality, cardiac catheterization, internal cardiac defibrillator (ICD) consideration and advanced ICU care. In addition to scholarly presentations and discussions regarding targeted 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 the practical issues surrounding the implementation of targeted temperature management (TTM) and its range of applications and uses, and will gain an understanding of how to best develop and implement a comprehensive in-hospital high quality resuscitation program.

This activity has been designed for physicians (cardiologists, neurologists, emergency medicine physicians, intensive care physicians), physician assistants, registered and advanced practice nurses, and emergency medical service directors and paramedics.

Learning Objective:

At the conclusion of this program, learners should be able to:

  • Review the history, evidence and pathophysiology surrounding the use of TTM
  • Create a working TTM protocol for their respective institutions
  • Determine appropriate inclusion and exclusion criteria for patients being considered for comprehensive care including temperature and hemodynamic management
  • Implement TTM for patients at their respective institutions
  • Develop a “post-cardiac arrest bundle” of care for their organization including the use of automatic external defibrillators, CPR quality improvement, and debriefing arrest events
