Theatre presentations:

SESSION: Wake Up! From Alarm Fatigue

S Jill Ley,



This session provides a comprehensive, data-driven strategy to reduce nuisance alarms from varied clinical devices and improve patient safety, in alignment with the new National Patient Safety Goal (NPSG) for alarm management.

SESSION: Capnography in Cardiac Arrest – The Only Parameter to Monitor Both Ventilation and Perfusion

Thomas Ahrens, 



Capnography can be used in resuscitation to identify the adequacy of ventilation, but more importantly, the adequacy of perfusion. It is the only parameter that can monitor both. In addition, by monitoring perfusion, capnography provides real time information on return of circulation (ROSC) and survival prediction. Case studies will illustrate the simple but powerful impact of capnography in cardiac resuscitation.

SESSION: Resuscitation of Cardiac Arrest: Are You Prepared?

S Jill Ley, 



This session discusses risk factors for cardiac arrest and timely interventions for bedside providers that promote neurologic survival, evidence-based strategies to facilitate early defibrillation and optimize resuscitation efforts, and key recommendations for unique patient populations.

SESSION: Saving Face: Strategies to Reduce Skin Breakdown During NIV Therapy

Cyndi White,



Stage III and IV pressure ulcers are preventable hospital acquired conditions; however, they are no longer reimbursable. This session provides practical strategies and tactics for the bedside clinician to reduce mask-related redness on the patient’s face and prevent hospital acquired pressure sores.

SESSION: Bugs Be Gone: Reducing HAIs and Streamlining Care


Susan Whitney

Susan Whitney,



This session will discuss hospital-acquired infections and the impact disposable ECG leads have on patient safety and intra-hospital patient transport by reducing cross contamination, artifact, and false alarms, as well as improving clinical workflow and efficiency.

SESSION: How to Identify the Most Important Alarm Signals to Manage

Lisa A. Pahl,



Ruth Wilson,



This session will provide an overview and case study on how to capture and analyze patient monitoring alarm signals in order to create data-driven modifications in both practice and alarm settings to decrease nuisance alarms and enhance patient care that are aligned with the new Joint Commission National Patient Safety Goal on Alarm Management.
