Surviving COVID-19: The Path to Optimal Recovery
Almost any type of infection can lead to sepsis. The virus, SARS-CoV-2, can cause severe COVID-19 disease and lead to viral sepsis. As we learn more about acute clinical care for patients with COVID-19, it is essential to understand the recovery phase to provide optimal patient care. Understanding the challenges of survivors of COVID-19 and viral sepsis will help improve long-term outcomes. In this webinar, learn about delirium, fear, and the ABCDEF Bundle related to COVID-19 and sepsis. Speakers will discuss the role of post-ICU clinics, related post-intensive care syndrome (PICS), ICU-acquired weakness (ICUAW) and physical disability. Cognitive and mental health are an important component of patient care throughout the continuum of care.
