Join CHEST and MedPage Today on Thursday, March 21, at 7:00 p.m. CT/8:00 p.m. ET as we discuss another hot topic in pulmonary care, critical care, and sleep medicine. The topic? How quality of sleep can affect patient outcomes in the ICU.
Ask any patient – trying to sleep in the hospital is nearly impossible. With the alarms and the beeping, the noises, and the lights, by the time patients drift off to sleep, something else is waking them up!
In the ICU, these factors are even more pronounced. But it’s well known that promoting sleep in the ICU setting can reduce delirium and improve outcomes, both short- and long-term.
During this chat, we will discuss how quality of sleep can affect patient outcomes in the ICU using the hashtag #pulmCCMPT!
