Dodging Delirium: Implementing the ABCDEF Bundle

$159.00 $49.00

Post Intensive Care Syndrome (PICS) for the survivor of critical illness and their family is emerging as one of the most challenging issues today. Over the decades we have been successful at saving lives, but the consequences of surviving acute & critical illness are significant. It is imperative we tailor our interventions to help patients not only survive but thrive.

In hospitals across the world, clinicians are working diligently to ensure evidence-based practice is fully integrated into daily care to impact both short & long-term patient outcomes. The "A – F Bundle" weaves the practices of pain and agitation management, ventilator liberation with daily SATs & SBTs, delirium prevention and management allowing implementation of early mobility programs together with engaging the family in the journey. Without successful bundling of the interventions, the ability to integrate best practice is challenging.
