Minimise sedatives – this is what Prof. Jean-Louis Vincent from the Department of Intensive Care at the University of Brussels is advocating for modern ICUs. By radically focussing on patient comfort and quality of care, the eCASH concept, developed by an expert panel under his leadership, takes PAD management to the next level.
Due to modern advances in respiration systems, deep sedation is no longer necessary or advantageous for the patient.
The eCASH concept has developed from traditional methods of PAD management.
An interdisciplinary approach to eCASH implementation is imperative to its success.
A team effort is extremely important when implementing the eCASH protocol.
A system which allows everybody working at the bedside to articulate their opinion improves patient care, comfort and outcomes.
