Nursing and Practical Aspects in the Application and Implementation of SDD

Abstract

In our book, as far as the practice of SDD is concerned, the role of the nurse is of paramount importance. Unless all nurses are individually trained in the proper application of the oral paste decontamination will be unsuccessful. Conversely, persistent or repeated unsuccessful decontamination should lead to a study of precisely how the SDD paste is applied by the nursing staff, which can lead to additional training. The introduction and implementation of SDD at the bedside is mainly the task of a senior nurse, and in daily practice the intensive care nurses play an important part, as they are the ones who actually administer the medication. The goals of SDD are shown in Table 6.1.
