ASPEN Fluids, Electrolytes, and Acid-Base Series and Certificate of Training Program

Now on demand in ASPEN's eLearning Center

Program Description:

ASPEN has created a new training series focusing on fluids, electrolytes and acid-base. If you need a better understanding of fluid and electrolyte management and if acid-base frequently puzzles you, then this training series is for you. Learn how to diagnose and treat the various extracellular and intracellular electrolyte disorders in your nutrition support patients. Develop a better understanding of arterial blood gases, acid-base balance, and how the nutrition support practitioner plays an important role in the correction of these abnormalities in patients. The faculty will integrate cases and sample scenarios to help maximize your comprehension and application of these challenging topics.

This training series is in an on-demand webinar format and consist of four interwoven parts. As a participant in the training series you have the option to participate in one or all parts, however to receive the Certificate of Training in Fluids, Electrolytes and Acid-Base, you must participate in all four parts and claim continuing education credit. Additionally, because of the complexities associated with fluids, electrolytes and acid-base, ASPEN recommends participation in the entire series. The four parts are as follows.

  1. Sodium and IV Fluids
  2. Potassium and Magnesium
  3. Calcium and Phosphorus
  4. Acid-Base
