2.0 Free CEUs for RT- VAP & Other Complications Related To Tracheostomy

tracheostomyFighting VAP one step at a time: Early mobility for the ventilated patient/Tracheostomy: Do we need to be concerned about the complications?- With the introduction of VAP prevention bundles by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), critical care units have reported dramatic reductions in VAP rates. In her article, Ms. Andrews reviews the evidence supporting or questioning recommendations for VAP prevention and explores the evidence-based practices beyond the basic bundle including early tracheostomy and early mobility.
Since its inception, tracheostomy has become one of the more frequently performed procedures in ICU care. It has been estimated that 15-20% of ICU patients undergo tracheostomy at some point during their clinical course. Tracheostomy offers several important advantages over endotracheal intubation. Over the years many technological advances have occurred both in terms of the procedure and the tracheostomy tube technology. In his article, Mr. Davies describes the types and incidences of complications in light of today’s technology and population distributions.
Compare the evidence supporting the bundle elements recommended for reducing VAP in the ICU patient.
Describe the modalities referred to as early mobilization.
Discuss early versus late complications.
Describe methods to secure a tracheostomy tube.

Diagnosis, Treatment, & Monitoring of Pediatric ADHD- Free AMA CME for Physicians

adhdAddressing Clinical Challenges in the Diagnosis, Treatment, and Monitoring of ADHD in Children and Adolescents- Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is characterized by symptoms of inattention and/or hyperactivity and impulsivity, but can manifest differently from child to child. The condition is prevalent, occurring in more than 5 million children in the United States between the ages of and 4 and 17, and may negatively impact personal development, academic achievement, and the ability to form and maintain relationships. Because there is no single objective test for diagnosing ADHD, diagnosis can be challenging. In addition, comorbidity is common, with up to 50% of children who have ADHD presenting with at least one comorbidity. Treatment and management of ADHD also presents a challenge. Schedule II stimulants, which were the standard treatment in the past, have been associated with a higher incidence of misuse and abuse, and are being replaced with new agents and different formulations of existing medications.
Discuss the challenges to diagnosing ADHD in children and adolescents, and strategies to overcome these hurdles.
Assess the efficacy and safety of available pharmacologic treatments to effectively manage ADHD in children and adolescents.
Describe how to integrate health care provider/patient communication techniques into the routine care of patients with ADHD.
