Intensive Care Emergency Procedure Training or INCEPT, is a procedural training program designed with three stages of learning for Health Care Providers (HCPs). The program was designed to help HCPs become more familiar and more comfortable performing emergent invasive procedures in a rapid response situation when a procedural expert cannot be reached in an efficient amount of time. During an emergent situation, ICU Hospitalists for example, are required to attend acute decompensations in care including rapid response and Code Blues where emergent invasive procedures need to be performed. These patients are in life-threatening situations and there was a lack of available expert proceduralists; thus the need for properly trained intensivists who are familiar with these emergent invasive procedures; Bronchoscopy, Thoracostomy “with chest tube placement”, Swan ganz placement, Transvenous pacemaker placement, Pericardiocentesis, and Cricothyroidotomy.

The INCEPT program provides adequate training to HCPs within your hospital to better patient outcomes by expediting the time to these emergent critical procedures rather than waiting for experts to arrive in the hospital, possibly preventing further deterioration of the patient’s clinical status.

During the INCEPT training you and your HCP group will gain the benefits of the course’s unique learning environment.
