Challenge 21: Ventilation Management

Mechanical ventilation is one of the most common, interdisciplinary interventions for hospitalized patients and required a high degree of coordination. Furthermore, mechanical ventilation is an intervention that is associated with a plethora of potential adverse outcomes. Our APSS Blueprints provide healthcare organizations with practical, evidence-based checklists and protocols to establish a process for monitoring, weaning, infection prevention, and patient education around mechanical ventilation.
