Description

Supported by Smith+Nephew

Critically ill patients in intensive care units are highly vulnerable to pressure injuries because of limited mobility, multiple medical devices, and the severity of their disease including patents with ARDS. This session will discuss the evolving appreciation for early mobilization and prone positioning in context of Covid-19, and a step-by-step clinical intervention strategy to reduce the incidence of pressure injury specific to the ECMO and critical care population.
