This 1 day course emphasizes key considerations applicable to the rehabilitation professional in effectively managing patients in the intensive care unit (ICU). Time will be spent looking at the evidence for rehabilitation in the ICU as well as understanding the ICU environment. This includes management of various lines and equipment, ventilators and other devices commonly seen within the ICU setting. The course further accentuates an evidence-based approach in managing patients with deep vein thromboses, and helps the practitioner understand the clinical relevance of telemetry and electrocardiograms. The course will attempt to disseminate 'unstable' from 'stable-unstable' labels and emphasize the response-dependent approach to managing these patients. Evaluation strategies, organized clinical decision making and effective treatment techniques will be emphasized. Clinicians are challenged to integrate and synthesize physiological and clinical principles in decision making through the use of various clinical case studies.
