So Many Options, So Little Time: NPWT in the Critical Care Environment

Presenter: Renaye L. Mansfield, RN, CWCA; Ryan Ford, BSN, RN, CWS, CCRN Alumnus

Date and time: Tuesday, May 25th 7:00-8:00am PST

Critical Care nurses are tasked with managing an array of complex wounds. Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) is often viewed as a highly specialized skill, but it does not have to be complex. Join this session to learn how NPWT’s mechanism of action can address acute wounds, chronic wounds, and closed incisions. This session will provide education on the types of wounds appropriate for the various types of NPWT and equip the critical care nurse to confidently manage a patient with NPWT.

LEAF Patient Monitoring System

Monitoring system + wearable patient sensor that provides visual cues to staff to help improve turn protocol adherence and prevent HAPIs—making a critical difference in improving patient outcomes.

“Turning” to Technology: Reducing Pressure Injury Incidence in Critical Care with Turn Cueing
