Posters, 2006-2018

Duke University. Medical Center. Department of Neurology.
Scope and content:

Contains posters presented by Stacey Bennett a various conferences. The "Use of High Frequency Oscillatory Ventilation (HFOV) in Neurocritical Care Patients" poster was presented at the Neurocritical Care Society's (NCS) Annual Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland, and the Respiratory Care Congress in Austin, Texas. This poster was the first poster presented at either conference where the project was led by a nurse practitioner, as well as the first project lead by a female in the NCS group. The project the poster documents changed what medical practitioners knew about ventilating patients with traumatic brain injury by demonstrating that lives could be saved if high frequency ventilation was used and that it was safe to do so. This led to a change in international medical practice by changing what was once an absolute contraindication to a relative contraindication. As a result, patients began to receive newer alternative modes of ventilation through high frequency ventilation techniques. Additionally, more research was conducted by the US military and others because of this project. The "Smashing the National Average for Complication Rates Related to Central Line Insertions: A 5-Year Journey" poster was presented at the NCS Annual Meeting in Boca Raton, Florida. It was also supposed to be presented at the Society of Critical Care in Medicine Quality Improvement Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, but the conference was cancelled because of Hurricane Florence. The poster was presented online instead. This poster outlines 5 years of work to get to a 0% complication rate for central line placement in Duke's NeuroICU. Materials date from 2006 to 2018.
