Help Change the Face of Patient Care at ICULiberation.org

Liberate your patients from the harmful effects of pain, agitation and delirium in the ICU and improve their long-term outcomes.
Visit ICULiberation.org for the resources vital in assessing, treating and preventing these conditions and for tools helpful in implementing the early mobility strategies that can help reduce the risk of long-term consequences from an ICU stay.

The main recommendations from the 2013 PAD Guidelines include
  • Integrating multi-professional approach to managing pain, agitation/sedation, and delirium to achieve significant, synergistic benefits to improve patient outcomes.
  • Utilizing valid and reliable bedside assessment tools for pain, sedation, and delirium, so as to target appropriate treatment strategies.
  • Decreasing levels of sedation, while assuring adequate pain control and delirium management, to allow patients active participation in ventilator weaning trials along with early mobility activities.
  • Instituting prevention strategies in the ICU to avoid complications and improve clinical outcomes.
