Course Overview

Welcome to Common Pages! (3.0 CME)

In this course, we will cover all the real common pages that you will receive in the hospital on a daily basis.  It is estimated that you will spend at least 1-2 hours on your regular day answering about 25-30 pages about your patients.  Through this course, we will discuss these pages so that you will be ready to answer them with confidence and know how to deal with the most common abnormalities that you will face acutely.  From lab abnormalities, to rapid responses and arrythmias, to hemorrhage and everything in between.  By the end of this course, you should feel more comfortable holding your pager and answering the most common and difficult pages with confidence!
