Cheetah Medical offers online courses designed to add to your understanding of clinical hemodynamics
Starling SV System 5.5 Overview and Training
The first module presents an overview of the Starling™ SV 5.5 Software, including Sensor Placement, performing a Passive Leg Raise (PLR), and additional important information regarding the new simplified user interface. Module #2 continues the overview of the Starling SV 5.5 Software, including how to perform a fluid bolus, and also some additional important features of the software.
Starling SV System (5.2 Software Version) Overview and Training
These four modules present an Overview of the Starling SV Monitor, Basic System Set up and Use Instructions, the Importance of Cheetah Sensor Placement, and how to change Systems Settings.
CHEETAH NICOM System Overview and Training
These three modules provide an Overview of the CHEETAH NICOM system, Basic System Setup and Use Instructions, the Importance of Cheetah Sensor Placement, and how to change System Settings.
This module presents the fundamental concepts of hemodynamics, and can be used either as a review or to introduce clinical hemodynamics and monitoring to determine the core components of cardiac physiology and blood flow. Interspersed with the content are assessment slides to help measure your understanding of the material.
Continuing Medical Education (CME)
What’s New in Hemodynamics
Cheetah Medical has provided support for three CME courses through an educational grant. Click on the course title to enroll and earn the Continuing Education Credits.
- Hemodynamics – Where Are We Now. (Michael Pinsky MD Dr hc)
- New Trends in Hemodynamics – Dynamic Assessments (Paul Marik MD, FCCP, FCCM)
- Applications in Hemodynamics – Taking Us from Here to the Future: Clinical Applications. (Thomas Hopkins MD)
These three CME activities are planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through ScientiaCME. ScientiaCME is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians. Credit Designation: ScientiaCME designates each of these educational activities for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ toward the AMA Physician’s Recognition Award. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Download the Cheetah-sponsored CME Card for easy access to the CME courses at your convenience. The digital card links are active.
Continuing Medical Education for Critical Care Nurses
Nurse Practitioners: The American Academy of Nurse Practitioners accepts AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ from organization accredited by the ACCME. In reference to the CME activities described above, nurses may claim credit for activities approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ in most States for up to 50% of the nursing requirement for recertification. Check with the AACN to learn if credit can be earned in your State.
Nurse-Driven Fluid Optimization Using Dynamic Assessments
At the 2016 American Association of Critical Care Nurse (AACN) Conference, nurses were awarded CERP (Continuing Education Recognition Points) credits toward licensure for attending this lecture. CERPs are recognized by the AACN Certification Corporation, the society’s credentialing arm, to encompass a wide spectrum of continuing education activities performed by nurses in high acuity and critical care areas of care to fulfill educational requirements for certification.
While the CERPs were awarded only during the 2016 AACN NTI (National Teaching Institute) conference, the slides are available for download by clicking on the link. The course contains good clinical examples of hemodynamic monitoring using Cheetah Technology.
