Mobilizing the Medically Complex ICU and Acute Care Patient
with Ellen Hillegass 

Therapists are often challenged when presented with complex acute care patients who may have cardiovascular and/or pulmonary dysfunction or complications in addition to other medical conditions. Mobilizing these complex patients safely requires integration of the implications of lab values, diagnostic test results, patient history, medications and equipment. Signs of patient instability and when and how to modify or terminate treatment will be discussed. This course provides therapists with the knowledge, problem solving skills, and all the red flags for assessing mobility as well as the tools to develop safe and appropriate intervention programs for patients in acute care no matter their diagnosis.

This course is designed for PT’s OT’s SLPs and Assistants working with acute care patients in all practice settings
