Topics in the GEMS Advanced Course including caring for and transporting patients on home ventilators, LVADs (left ventricular assist devices), tracheostomies, PICC lines/invasive lines, and feeding tubes. This is facilitated through a series of scenarios involving increasingly complex symptoms and situations.
