Acute Care and ICU for the Rehabilitation Therapist

CE Hours 2

About this live event

Rehabilitation therapy for patients in the intensive care unit is a growing area of practice for physical and occupational therapists. Improved medical and surgical interventions have allowed for patients to be supported in the ICU for longer periods of time, resulting in high rates of ICU-Acquired Weakness. Early mobility and intervention by physical and occupational therapists is paramount to improve the medical and physical outcomes of patients in the ICU. The speaker will review relevant medical and surgical devices, oxygen delivery devices, pharmacology, lab values, sedation considerations, and potential challenges that therapists may be faced with while working with the ICU patient population and provide tools to advocate for improved mobility practice. Experiences will be shared regarding gaining physician, nursing, and respiratory therapy buy-in, up-training therapy staff, and progressing patient mobility with interdisciplinary care. Case studies will be reviewed and patient outcomes discussed to provide examples of rehabilitation interventions to progress beyond “early mobility” with lessons and considerations for PTs and OTs in all areas of practice.

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss basic principles of lines, tubes, and monitoring equipment based on the physiology of the patient including rehabilitation considerations.
  • Describe general considerations for mobilizing patients with lines, tubes, and advanced oxygen support including safety and acute care/ICU environmental considerations.
  • Integrate the foundational physiology of common clinical conditions and underlying patient disease process with the principles of exercise and rehabilitation.
  • Describe common principles for safely mobilizing and rehabilitating a complex patient and review patient case examples.
