CPOT Assessment

For those of you using CPOT assessment in your ICUs, could you please share your protocol or policy? Specifically the guidance to nurses on titrating analgesic drips to reach appropriate doses (i.e. are you doing an “analgesic holiday”, how often, when to do the CPOT assessment after rate reduction, etc.). Any guidance or information would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to email me directly if preferred. Allyson.Fonte@msmc.com.

Thank you
