Show Notes

Untreated pain, anxiety, and agitation have both short- and long-term consequences for our critically ill patients.  More importantly, it is well-known that patients remember the pain experienced during their critical illness.  New guidelines for the assessment and management of pain, agitation, delirium, immobility, and sleep were just published.  In this podcast, we review the latest guideline and discuss pearls and pitfalls of analgesia and sedation in the critically ill.
