This poignant course will take acute care therapies to the next level by arming therapists with knowledge to create effective treatment plans that can be easily applied within the ICU, acute care, and post-acute care settings. This course is designed to enhance the clinical decision-making skills of participants for early mobilization and safe, effective treatment of acutely ill patients. As more patients survive critical illnesses, intervention must complement the highly technologic, life-saving medical therapies, regardless of practice setting. Discussion of lines, physiologic monitors, lab values, and diagnostic test results will focus on implications for treatment. This Evidence-Based course will highlight a multisystem approach to the acutely ill patient. Participants will integrate examination findings into individualized care plans that can be implemented from ICU and across acute care and post-acute practice settings. Cours Objectives: • Participants will be able to apply course learning immediately to: • Identify signs and symptoms of patient instability and the need to modify or terminate treatment. • Discuss how patients become deconditioned and how to reverse this for functional recovery. • Interpret and apply multisystem examination techniques for the complex patient including vital sign monitoring and interpretation of diagnostic tests such as imaging modalities, ECG analysis, pulmonary function testing and laboratory blood analysis. • Determine appropriate rehabilitation interventions for persons with multisystem disorders based on examination findings, as well as patient/client goals.
