9 ALERTALERT ! Oxford changes Changing round the program –Communication earlier –Maintain ABC lecture order –Move demo back –Increased numbers to 25 per course –Other teaching techniques: group work, videos, MCQs, simulation

10 ALERTALERT ! Oxford changes AGM Annual dinner Annual report Wandering Star

11 ALERTALERT ! Feedback Verbal feedback is positive Direct and indirect Medical, nursing, physio, management Compulsory feedback form Enjoyable and Valuable Used to improve the course Arrest rate / ICU admissions rate

12 ALERTALERT ! Assessment Not included in Oxford ALERT Candidates successfully attend the complete course Links with RAID training Local view –Whats possible? –Whats helpful?

13 ALERTALERT ! The ALERT Five Minute Multiple Choice

14 ALERTALERT ! Question One Below are several forms of intravenous access. Rank them according to how quickly 250 mls of Gelofusine can be administered through them, with the fastest first (1 = fastest; 5 = slowest) A Pink (20G) Cannulae (Venflon) using a pressure bag A triple lumen central line A PICC line (Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter) A Grey (16G) Cannula (Venflon) A Green (18G) Cannula (Venflon)

15 ALERTALERT ! The time it takes to give 250 mls of Gelofusine A Grey (16G) Venflon –1 minutes 20 seconds A Pink (20G) Venflon with a pressure bag (with 300mmHg pressure) –2 minutes (pressure at least halves the time) A Green (18G) Venflon –3 minutes A triple lumen central line –3 minutes 30 seconds (on largest lumen) A PICC line (Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter) –Too slow to bother timing! FAST SLOW

16 ALERTALERT ! Question Two A patient on your ward is breathing inadequately with a respiratory rate of 4 per minute. Their airway is patent and the crash team is on its way. You should … Give oxygen and observe for a respiratory arrest Attempt bag mask ventilation with maximum oxygen flow Intubate the patient with an endotracheal tube or laryngeal mask

You should … Give oxygen and observe for a respiratory arrest Attempt bag mask ventilation with maximum oxygen flow Intubate the patient with an endotracheal tube or laryngeal mask

18 ALERTALERT ! Question Three A patient on your ward has a tracheostomy. They are cyanosed and having trouble breathing. Help is on its way but you want to give oxygen at as high a concentration as possible. The safest set up for delivering Oxygen acutely is ….

19 ALERTALERT ! Question Three A partial rebreath mask (mask with reservoir bag) held over the mouth and nose A partial rebreath mask (mask with reservoir bag) held over the tracheostomy 28% humidified oxygen through a tracheostomy mask over the tracheostomy A partial rebreath mask (mask with reservoir bag) held over the tracheostomy and another mask held over the face Pushing green oxygen tubing down the tracheostomy and turning the flow on the wall as high a possible

21 ALERTALERT ! Question Four The following drugs are often life saving for a patient with a low fluid output: Oxygen Frusemide Saline Viagra

22 ALERTALERT ! Question Four The following drugs are often life saving for a patient with a low fluid output: Oxygen Frusemide Saline Viagra

23 ALERTALERT ! Question Five True or False You should stop a patients oxygen before taking arterial blood gases in order to accurately assess their oxygen exchange

24 ALERTALERT ! Question Five True or False You should stop a patients oxygen before taking arterial blood gases in order to accurately assess their oxygen exchange FALSE

25 ALERTALERT ! Question Five True or False The respiratory rate is a useful observation for predicting patients deterioration

26 ALERTALERT ! Question Five True or False The respiratory rate is a useful observation for predicting patients deterioration TRUE

27 ALERTALERT ! Question Five True or False Patients rarely deteriorate suddenly. Usually doctors and nurses suddenly notice that a patient is ill!

28 ALERTALERT ! Question Five True or False Patients rarely deteriorate suddenly. Usually doctors and nurses suddenly notice that a patient is ill! TRUE
