Free ASHA CEUs for SLPs- Early Intervention in the ICU

Early SLP Intervention for the Ventilated ICU Patient: Use it or Lose It!- It is common to delay rehabilitation efforts in the ICU patient, based on the rationale that patients are “too sick.” The literature suggests that this hands-off approach may cause more harm than good and that early intervention can minimize and potentially reverse the impact of myopathy, polyneuropathy, and muscle disuse atrophy. This webinar will address the underlying mechanisms for neuromotor degredation in the ICU patient, and discuss how this can impact oropharyngeal and laryngeal functions. Discussion will include a review of the relevant literature, and offer a model for a variety of therapeutic interventions for dysphagia and communication in the ICU for the tracheostomized and ventilator patient.
