ICU Liberation

Gain strategies for effectively implementing sedation liberation and promoting patient mobility. The Society of Critical Care Medicine's ICU Liberation initiative aims to liberate patients from the harmful effects of pain, agitation, and delirium (PAD) in the intensive care unit (ICU). The ICU Liberation PAD guidelines and the ABCDEF Bundle are vital resources in assessing, treating and preventing pain, agitation, and delirium. The initiative also is focused on early mobility strategies that can help reduce the risk of long-term consequences from an ICU stay. These ICU Liberation educational materials support the intiatives goals to improve care and quality of life for the ICU patient.
