New Resource! IPE: Oral Health and Mechanically Ventilated Critically Ill Adults

Please view the MedEdPortal PowerPoint presentation created by Jones, D., Sadowsky, J., Morris D. and Patel, B entitled " IPE: Oral Health and Mechanically Ventilated Critically Ill Adults" that

provides an overview of the interrelationship of oral health and  systemic health in mechanically ventilated adults.

 

The purpose of the module is to :

  • inform health care professionals of the link between oral health and systemic health in mechanically ventilated adults;
  • the characteristics of mechanically ventilated adults that increase their risk of systemic effects from poor oral hygiene;
  • state of the science recommendations for oral hygiene practices;
  • an oral hygiene regimen for mechanically ventilated adults;
  • and ways that nursing, dental, medical, and respiratory therapy professionals can be influential in improving interprofessional oral hygiene practices for mechanically ventilated adults.

 

To achieve the intended aim, this video/presentation consists of five segments:

1) Relationship of oral health to overall systemic health.

2) Characteristics, and rationale supporting good oral hygiene in mechanically ventilated patients.

3) State of science of oral care practices in mechanically ventilated adults.

4) Recommended regimen for oral hygiene in mechanically ventilated adults.

5) Detrimental practices, special considerations, and the role of interprofessional healthcare providers

 

Because it is offered in a narrated format with embedded video clips, providers can refer to it as many times as necessary to refresh and/or clarify understanding.

 

The narrated power point can also be projected as a stand-alone presentation before a group of viewers in teaching and/or calibration scenarios.

 

For the convenience of the educator, the power point is also provided without audio so that it may be used in a variety of ways or modified to meet specific needs.

 

While certainly applicable for those in the dental field, the content of the video/presentation will likely be most useful for those involved in the primary care of mechanically ventilated adults.

The power point presentation with audio and embedded video clips presents an overview of the relationship of oral health to overall systemic health in mechanically ventilated adults. The purpose of this module is to inform health care professionals of the link between oral health and systemic health in mechanically ventilated adults; the characteristics of mechanically ventilated adults that increase their risk of systemic effects from poor oral hygiene; state of the science recommendations for oral hygiene practices; an oral hygiene regimen for mechanically ventilated adults; and ways that nursing, dental, medical, and respiratory therapy professionals can be influential in improving interprofessional oral hygiene practices for mechanically ventilated adults. To achieve the intended aim, this video/presentation consists of five segments. The first segment focuses on the relationship of oral health to overall systemic health. The second segment explains the characteristics, and rationale supporting good oral hygiene in mechanically ventilated patients. The third segment focuses on the state of science of oral care practices in mechanically ventilated adults. The fourth segment explains and demonstrates a recommended regimen for oral hygiene in mechanically ventilated adults. Finally, detrimental practices, special considerations, and the role of interprofessional healthcare providers are presented.
