This series for the interdisciplinary healthcare team will include a review of respiratory assessments and vital sign trending in pediatric patients that would prompt early recognition of worsening clinical status and early initiation of interventions. The series will include an overview of escalation of care and methods for initiating and engaging in multidisciplinary communication when a patient is showing clinical signs of worsening respiratory status. In addition to a presentation from content experts, attendees will participate in case study review and discussion to provide direction on clinical practice. As a result of this activity, learners will be able to report increased knowledge and intent to change practice related to providing current, evidence-based care to pediatric patients.
Global Series Objectives:
- Discuss the trend feature in Epic to identify early signs of clinical changes in patients with respiratory distress
- Describe clinical signs of respiratory distress
- Discuss methods for engaging in multidisciplinary communication when a patient is showing signs of respiratory distress
