Implementation of a secretion management protocol and overview of PEP therapy and aerosol therapy Webinar
Media Type: (Webcast)
Various positive expiratory pressure (PEP) devices are being used to meet the needs of patients who require bronchial hygiene and secretion management. Some facilities are using protocols, or patient pathways, to increase both patient care and operational efficiency.
This webinar will provide an overview of the benefits seen by the implementation of a protocol for positive expiratory pressure (PEP) therapy and secretion management. As the optimization of the delivery of bronchodilators is one of the indications for PEP Therapy, a retrospective on PEP therapy and medication delivery will also be conducted.
- Become familiar with how some facilities are currently managing patients in need of PEP therapy and secretion management.
- Review actual hospital experiences regarding the implementation of PEP and secretion management protocols and patient pathways.
- Review current literature and evidence supporting PEP therapy and medical aerosol delivery
