Upcoming Webinar - Optimizing temperature management of the infant
Thermoregulation is a cornerstone of neonatal care and continues to be a challenge in the extremely low birth weight (ELBW) population. Temperature instability can lead to a cascade of other sequelae detrimental to the infant. This discussion will go through the basics
of heat loss and the challenges associated with it, as well as the importance of nursing care in the management of thermoregulation and what can be done now and into the futureImage
Upcoming Webinar - Strategies for the implementation of quantitative NMT monitoring into clinical practice
Neuromuscular blocking agents (NMBA) are among the most used medications in anesthesia. The appropriate use of NMBAs and their pharmacologic antagonists is dependent upon accurate assessment of the depth of neuromuscular blockade using objective indices obtained through quantitative neuromuscular monitors. Despite the widespread availability of these devices, their broad adoption remains sorely lacking.Image

Monitoring the Unmonitored
Adverse events in general wards are not uncommon, and many are preventable. Mortality after surgery is 1000x higher than intraoperative mortality ¹. In the ward, vital signs are often abnormal, or trending toward abnormal, hours before cardiac arrest or IC transfer, but clinicians may only suddenly notice because of spot-checks are usually done on a 4-6 hours interval ². Abnormal RR has been shown to be an important predictor of serious events such as cardiac arrest an admission to an ICU ³ .
