Essential Emergency & Critical Care

Last Revision December 6, 2023


Critical illness can affect any type of patient anywhere. Globally, over 90% of critically ill patients are found outside ICUs.  All bedside providers must be able to recognize critical illness, respond rapidly, and rescue patients from life-threatening decompensation.

  • Understand what EECC IS and what EECC IS NOT
  • Identify critical illness using vital signs and physical assessments
