Identify relevant medical information and equipment settings in the environment of the ICU that influences decision making during the evaluation and treatment of a patient Apply at least two current literature and evidenced-based trends to progress functional recovery for patients that suffer critical illness Apply exercise physiology principles to prescribe an effective exercise program Implement an integrative rehabilitation plan to address pulmonary dysfunction Analyze the complexity of critical illness via a case scenario to develop an evaluation and intervention approach to provide comprehensive care

Target Audience
PTs, OTs and SLPs working in an acute care setting with primarily adults. The focus will be on cardiovascular and pulmonary critical illness. It is recommended that participants have a basic knowledge of lines, tubes and ventilators.

Therapists working with patients in ICU face complex challenges. An important clinical scenario found in patients during an ICU stay is the limitation and deterioration of functional status. For selected patients in ICU, early mobility and physical activity can lead to an increase in functional capacity and improve quality of life. It is also possible to have an associated decreased length of hospital stay and subsequent reduction in hospital costs. The content of this course will guide clinicians through the process of understanding and managing adult ICU patients from patient selection, therapeutic interventions to choice of outcome measures. This course is also designed to inspire clinicians to reflect on and understand the clinical principles which promote best practices and positively influence the recovery of patients in ICU
