Summary from 7/27 Pacing Event: “A Multifaceted Approach to Harm Prevention: An Exploration of Airway Safety, Delirium, and Mobility”

As we continue to draw connections across the harms that HIINs and hospitals are working to reduce, this Pacing Event will begin to explore the relationship between airway safety, delirium, and mobility. The session discussed evidence and best practices related to the risks of an unplanned extubation, including considerations around sedation management. In addition, airway safety in the perioperative environment, including considerations around delirium and mobility. Specifically, this session featured presentations from:

  • Maged Tanios, MD, MPH, Chief of Staff at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center in CA (HSAG HIIN), who discussed his work to identify and define the risks to unplanned extubation through a focus on “near misses.” He also shared his hospital’s work to reduce unplanned extubations.
  • Matthias Eikermann, MD, PhD, Vice Chair for Critical Care in the Department of Anesthesia, Critical Care and Pain Medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in MA, who focused on his research on respiratory safety in the perioperative environment, including what members of the critical care team can do to prevent safety events, as well as research and efforts that provide insights into the connections to delirium and early mobility.
