Respiratory Failure after Open Heart Surgery
I have a question regarding routine mechanical ventilation after open heart surgery. What do you recommend your providers document? Example- Pt to ICU after open heart, weaned per normal protocol, extubated within 4 hours.
Our Md’s write Acute Post Op Resp Failure but as you know that causes a PSI. What do you recommend they write to prevent a query but also cover for their critical care time?
