Clinical Nurse Educator – Adult Critical Care at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta, will be joining us at the conference during the Monday June 27th Plenary session at 0900. Plenary Session.
The plenary session on Necrotizing Faciitis provides an in-depth examination of Necrotizing Fasciitis, including the pathophysiology, epidemiology, and known risk factors for this unique condition. Recognition of pertinent signs and symptoms, aided by laboratory and diagnostic findings, assist health care professionals in initiating immediate life-saving treatment. The role of early, operative surgical management is emphasized, in conjunction with antibiotics, vacuum-assisted devices, and skin grafting. Priorities on admission to Critical Care, with an emphasis on hemodynamic stability, prevention of infection, and wound care, is discussed.
Case studies facilitate application of current, evidence-informed practice to enhance understanding of the complexity of medical and nursing care required of patients affected by this uncommon but devastating and potentially life-threatening condition.
