Overview of the AHRQ Safety Program for Mechanically Ventilated Patients (PDF, 1.37 MB)
This infographic provides a visual overview of the program’s three main technical bundles to improve care for mechanically ventilated patients: daily care processes, early mobility, and low tidal volume ventilation. These three technical bundles are structured around the principles of the Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program (CUSP), an innovative safety and quality intervention that helps teams identify and learn from defects, improve safety culture, and improve teamwork and communication.
More information about the three technical bundles is available through the links at the top of this page, and information about CUSP for the care of mechanically ventilated patients is available in the Module on How To Apply CUSP for Mechanically Ventilated Patients.
