Interdependent Intervention

When it came to interventions for the patient there were many which were divided into independent, dependent, and interdependent. Some of the independent interventions that pertain to this patient which is discussed in research was the importance of position changes. In the previous article which discussed the prevention of pressure ulcers they mention that the new pressure ulcer reducing bundle included interventions to move the patient every 3 hours and if indicated every 2 hours (Coyer et.al., 2015p. 201). These position changes were also implemented for the patient as well. In addition to position changes there is an indication for skin hygiene which included bed bath once per day with a chlorhexidine cleanser (Coyer et.al., 2015p. 201). …show more content…
Some similarities between the research and the interventions actually performed included the withdraw of ventilation being performed by both the nurse and respiratory therapist (Campbell et. al. 2015, p.782). The article which discussed the use of an algorithm while removing mechanical ventilation detailed the use of both nurses and respiratory therapy being trained to perform these interventions. Some of the additional interventions detailed in the research included using a staggered reduction of ventilation in comparison to turning it off all at once (Campbell et. al. 2015, …show more content…
The articles examined explained both interventions that were used in the patients care as well as new interventions that may be used to improve or prevent certain conditions. The article that discusses the use of a bundle to prevent pressure ulcers have interventions that should not only be used in hospitals but nursing homes and long term care facilities as well. The additional articles discussed also shed light on some new interventions that could be used. The article that proposes an algorithm should be used to withdraw care is something that is needed. Algorithms are used in the hospital in regards to treating a variety of conditions and these algorithms make sure that every patient is receiving the best care in addition to taking the guess work out of what to do which assists the staff as well. Sepsis can be extremely devastating to the body and when it comes to the use of antibiotics resistance is making it harder to treat. Considering this fact that sepsis is becoming harder to treat there needs to be new interventions being researched in order to assist. The use of vitamin D to treat sepsis could be a new intervention used after further research is conducted. Not only will it assist in the treatment of sepsis but is also a cost effective option. The articles discussed have an array of interventions which give hope for the future care of
