Global Point of Care
As healthcare systems continue to struggle to deal with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and plan for an uncertain future, sweeping changes have occurred across the healthcare continuum. From ethical staffing considerations to specific patient care protocols, hospitals have adjusted multiple processes to deal with the immediate challenges posed by an influx of patients, while preparing for the “new normal” that lies ahead.
This webinar will focus on the experiences and lessons learned from the perspective of an academic medical respiratory therapy manager. At the conclusion of the presentation, participants will gain a better understanding of respiratory therapy patient care strategies, ventilator and treatment protocols, staff and patient safety recommendations, blood gas testing processes, and what key steps facilities should take to prepare for a potential second wave of increased patient volume as we head into a respiratory season of unknown severity.
This event is produced by Whitehat Communications and sponsored by Abbott Point of Care.
