Description:

Unexpected adverse events resulting in transfer to the ICU occur in up to 9% of patients on the general care floor (GCF). Changes in ventilation have been found to be a key sign of patient deterioration. Early detection of respiratory insufficiency is key as for every hour of delay in detecting patient deterioration on the GCF increases the risk of death in the ICU by 1.5% and mortality by 1%. This webinar will describe the current evidence and cost savings associated with continuous respiratory monitoring on the general care floor.

 

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

  1. Recognize signs and symptoms of patient deterioration.
  2. Discuss the emergence of new technologies to predict early deterioration
  3. Evaluate the cost effectiveness of implementing continuous respiratory monitoring on the GCF.
