Lecture Overview

The PACU nurse must be skilled in a range of areas to manage highly complex patients - but just what exactly are the most crucial complications that can arise in the PACU setting, and how do we manage these? In this back-to-basics talk, Sue Querruel discusses the pathophysiology and management of some potentially life-threatening complications that are seen in PACU, and how you can detect these issues early on to prevent further issues from arising.
