Jun 25, 2014 8:00am ‐ Jun 25, 2014 9:00am


Credits: None available.

Standard: $20.00

Description

This session will explore turning and repositioning the hemodynamically unstable adult and pediatric patient in the intensive care unit. Specifically, the panel will describe the difference between expected changes in hemodynamic status based upon medications and medical condition and those which define the patient as truly too unstable to turn. Finally, the speakers will discuss techniques to safely turn patients in the ICU.


Learning Objectives:

  • Describe proper techniques for turning unstable patients including interventions for those patients who cannot be turned
  • Assess recovery to baseline expectations for hemodynamic instability influenced by gravity and patient condition
  • Evaluate techniques for positioning the unstable pediatric patient without compromising ABCs

Speaker(s):

  • C. Tod Brindle, MSN, RN, CWOCN, CLIN IV, Nurse Clinician, VCU Medical Center Wound Care Team, Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center
  • Rajiv Maholtra, DO, MS, FCCP
  • Ann Marie Nie, MSN, RN, CNP, FNP-BC, CWOCN
