Global Perspectives in Critical Care Part 2 continues to focus on care considerations that are pervasive in patient care. This begins with evidence-based assessment and management of pain, agitation and delirium, and continues with discussion of post-intensive care syndrome and the interventions to decrease its incidence and impact, including the ABCDE bundle. Specific risks common to critically ill patients are addressed, including common health-care associated infections and other risks such as VTE, CAUTI and HAPU. The module concludes with a discussion of organizing and coordinating care throughout the hospital stay, as well as managing patients receiving conscious sedation and those recovering from anesthesia.
