Effective Sedation Management

To hear the presenters describe their project, download the PPT file and play the slide show **This project was awarded 3rd place in the Research Project category. Finding a more effective management of sedation in mechanically ventilated patients is the goal of the CCU nurses at Waynesboro Hospital. A review of the literature of best practice/policy will occur with this study. The PICO question presented is: In intubated and mechanically ventilated critical care patients, what is the most effective protocol for sedation management compared to the current practice used at Waynesboro Hospital. Utilizing the Johns Hopkins Nursing Evidence-Based Practice Evidence Level and Quality Guide, the evidence from the literature reviews will indicate more effective measures for sedation medications and give options for other available sedation scales in managing intubated and mechanically ventilated CCU patients, with positive patient outcomes.
