#405 ICU Rehabilitation Care… Examination and Treatment Tools for Optimum Results

Description:  Data in the literature strongly supports the importance of early and frequent mobilization of the patient in the ICU environment, However, treating in the ICU can be quite intimidating, especially to the novice and even sometimes the experienced physical therapist. Medically complex patients challenge therapists to use high level clinical decision making skills to ensure optimal patient treatment while maintaining patient safety. This course will provide therapists with an overview of examination and treatment tools that can be used to optimize patient outcomes while maintaining safety and efficiency in a highly complex medical environment.

Date and location:  December 2, 2017 – Charleston, SC
