Consent for Research in the ICU On Demand

Researchers are at the forefront of advancing knowledge that can be leveraged to treat disease, to improve quality of care, and to enhance patient experiences and outcomes. In this webcast, expert faculty will discuss the challenges associated with obtaining in pediatric and adult consent for complex research in critically ill patients. During the discussion, federal regulations, the SUPPORT study, and the potential impact of consent decisions on the well-being of patients and healthcare personnel will be reviewed.
Additional Information:

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss the fundamentals of consent for research
  • Explain the issues of consent for research when the patients cannot consent for themselves
  • Describe the difference between pediatric and adult consent for research
  • Explore the problems for consent in complex research in critically ill patients

Continuous Electroencephalography in the ICU On Demand

Advance your intensive care unit's (ICU) continuous electroencephalography (cEEG) program. In the webcast Continuous Electroencephalography in the ICU from the Society of Critical Care Medicine's (SCCM) Controversies in Critical Care series, expert faculty review the evidence and rationale for cEEG in the ICU. Jan Claassen, MD, PhD, and Eva Katharina Ritzl, MD, FRCP, discuss the importance of cEEG in assisting with diagnosis and management of critically ill patients and review current recommendations and indications for cEEG in the ICU beyond neurologic injury. Key aspects, logistics, expert opinions, and obstacles of implementing a successful cEEG program in the ICU are explored.
Additional Information:

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss state-of-the-art cEEG technology in the ICU environment
  • Review current guidelines, recommendations and expert opinions on how to successfully implement a cEEG monitoring program in an ICU environment

Death by Neurological Criteria On Demand

Improve your confidence and knowledge in determining death by neurological criteria (DNC). In this webcast, expert faculty will review the most up-to-date research and processes in determining DNC.
Additional Information:

Learning Objectives

  • List the objective clinical tools needed to arrive at a DNC diagnosis, and describe the management and organ support (hemodynamics, electrolytes, endocrine imbalances) for DNC patients
  • Articulate the indications and pros/cons for ancillary testing to support a DNC diagnosis
  • Explain techniques and authoritative and unambiguous terms used by experts to appropriately engage families and surrogates in the discussion of DNC, and list the related common cross-cultural, ethnic and religious sensitivities

Palliative Sedation in the ICU On Demand

Use of palliative sedation in patient care is widely debated among intensive care unit (ICU) clinicians. In the webcast, expert faculty explore when and under what conditions such treatment is warranted and what types of sedation regimens are included under this rubric. Clinical considerations for use of palliative sedation in the ICU and the ethical foundations and potential pitfalls with this form of sedation will also be discussed.
Additional Information:

Learning Objectives

  • Distinguish palliative sedation from the use of opioids/sedatives for symptom management
  • Identify clinical reasons to continue ICU care with palliative sedation using case examples
  • Explain ethical arguments for and against palliative sedation and its use in the ICU
  • Contrast palliative sedation to euthanasia and decisions to forgo life-sustaining treatment

Should We Prone All ARDS Patients? On Demand

Prone positioning in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) has been shown to significantly improve oxygenation and prevent ventilator-induced lung injury. In this pro/con webcast, the most up-to-date evidence on the benefits, limitations, and alternatives of prone positioning of patients with ARDS will be presented by an esteemed panel of physicians.

Additional Information:

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the rationale for using the prone position
  • Explain the evidence supporting the use of the prone position
  • Implement a proning strategy in the ICU
  • Identify limitations and alternatives to prone positioning
