Adult ICU Issues and Answers Brochure Series

Critical care is the most sophisticated medical and nursing care provided to patients who face life-threatening illness or injury, which sometimes makes explaining it to the public difficult. That is why the Society of Critical Care Medicine Patient and Family Support Committee has developed the ICU Issues & Answers brochure series. Covering comprehensive topics in plain language, from life support options to machines commonly used in the ICU, these brochures help critical care providers communicate with patients and families so the public feels more at ease in the ICU environment, as well as equipped to make better-informed decisions about critical care. Pack is sold as a set of all 11 adult titles (25 of each title).

Alarm Fatigue: Evidence and Management Strategies

http://www.sccm.org/SiteCollectionImages/ev-Alarm-Alert-Fatigue-Webcasts.jpg
Description: This webcast is part one of a two-part webcast series on alarm and alert fatigue from the Society of Critical Care Medicine, held in collaboration with the Surgery Patient and Safety Committee. During this session, Maria M. Cvach, DNP, RN, FAAN, Director of Policy Management and Integration at The Johns Hopkins Health System, and Bradford D. Winters, MD, PhD, FCCM, Associate Profressor, Anethesiology and Critical Care Medicine and Surgery at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, will discuss how alarm fatigue has become a health technology hazard and will offer strategies for management. Missed alarms have resulted in patient injury and death; this hazard has been listed on the Emergency Care Research Institute’s Top 10 Health Technology Hazards list since its inception in 2007. The Joint Commission instituted a National Patient Safety Goal on Alarm Management in 2014 with a requirement that hospitals fully implement it by January 2016.

Alert Fatigue: Management Approaches and Appropriate Metrics

http://www.sccm.org/SiteCollectionImages/ev-Alarm-Alert-Fatigue-Webcasts.jpg
Description: This webcast is part two of a two-part webcast series on alarm and alert fatigue from the Society of Critical Care Medicine, held in collaboration with the Surgery Patient and Safety Committee. In this session, Sandra L. Kane-Gill, PharmD, MS, FCCM, Associate Professor, Pharmacy and Therapeutics at the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy, will discuss how clinical decision support systems (CDSSs) are commonly used for preventing medication errors, and how they are gaining interest as electronic syndromic surveillance systems for events such as sepsis and acute kidney injury. While CDSSs improve patient outcomes, the number of alerts increases the risk of alert fatigue. Approaches to managing alert fatigue are needed to ensure effective use of CDSSs.
