Commitment to Education
At 410 Medical part of our mission is to help educate emergency and critical care providers about fluid resuscitation for critically ill patients. Not every patient needs rapid fluid resuscitation, but when they do, the guidelines can be confusing and the messages and publications conflicting. The CE courses, training modules, and publications below are designed to provide you with information and training to help you better understand when rapid fluid resuscitation is critical, how best to deliver rapid fluids, and what to watch for. Our ultimate goal is to help you improve care and save lives.
CE Modules for Nurses: take a free course and earn CE credit
410 Medical offers two continuing education (CE) courses for Registered Nurses. The courses are accredited by the CA Board of Registered Nursing through our partners at AKH, Inc. Our goal is to empower all nurses with the latest research and best practices about fluid resuscitation for pediatric or adult patients.
