Debra Riley


The Professional Master’s Degree Intensive Care Nursing of TECH trains experts to check and administer anesthesia and manage the procedures needed during the patient’s stay in intensive care.

TECH Technological University developed the Professional Master’s Degree Intensive Care Nursing since it is one of the most specialized services today and is essential to have an expert with great precision in nursing techniques and care throughout the recovery process for patients with a serious prognosis or elevated risk of presenting complications.

The content for this master is focused on the latest updates for the provision of care in intensive care areas, whose functions require important levels of qualification.

Specifically, is crucial to count on an expert focused on anesthesia which is the use of drugs to prevent pain during the surgery and other procedures, the nurses from TECH will get the latest updates needed to administer this by injection, inhalation, topical lotion, spray, eye drops, or skin patch.

On this wise, it is important to understand that there are several distinct types of anesthesia:

  • Local anesthesia: Numbs a small part of the body. It can be used on a small area around a wound that needs stitches. The patient is awake and alert during local anesthesia.
  • Regional anesthesia: It is used for larger areas of the body, such as an arm, leg, or anything below the waist, during childbirth, or minor surgeries. Also, the patient may be awake during the procedure or may be given sedatives.
  • General anesthesia: Affects the entire body. It leaves the patient unconscious and unable to move. It is used during major operations, such as heart surgery, brain surgery, back surgery, and organ transplants.

In this way, the students from TECH will learn 100% online with the development of more than 100 clinical cases presented by nursing professionals who are experts in intensive care, assessment, and monitoring of the critically ill patient, practical cases, theory, comprehensive systematized action plans for pathologies, forums and more to get successful training to respond to the needs of patients in critical condition with criteria of efficiency, scientific rigor and the highest professional level.
