Shivering is a common side effect associated with targeted temperature management and may be challenging to mitigate in the complex patient population. It is imperative to have a step-wise approach to modulate shivering through standardized protocols. This webinar will review the thermoregulatory shift associated with fever and shivering and discuss treatment modalities to provide a […]
Dr. Joseph Varon is the Chairman of the Board and Chief of Critical Care at United General Hospital in Houston and an internationally recognized expert in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and therapeutic hypothermia. In this webinar, he analyzes the current research, offers recommendations for protocol implementation and discusses the pros and cons of available TTM devices. Infamously, […]
This session will review neurogenic fever, its incidence, thermoregulatory shifts associated with hypothalamic injuries and associated interventions. On completion of this webinar, you will be able to: Discuss the importance of targeted temperature management (TTM) Discuss thermoregulatory setpoint shifts during hypothalamic injuries Explain the pathophysiology of shivering List 3 interventions to combat shivering
Dr. DaiWai Olson, Ph.D., RN leads an in-depth discussion about why shivering occurs and how to address it in critical care patients.
