CHAIN Webinar: “Vanishing VAE”
December 8, 12 - 1 p.m. CT
Mechanical ventilation saves the lives of over 300,000 critically ill patients in the U.S. annually; however, there are preventable ventilator related complications that can lead to poor outcomes, including death. The Minnesota Hospital Association convened a group of Minnesota hospitals to conduct a review of the most recent evidence-based recommendations related to VAE prevention, and establish a bundle of interventions. The Vanishing VAE bundle is being piloted by four hospitals, including one rural hospital. Lessons learned during initial implementation will be shared. Register
