I am trying to put together a Surgical Lecture Series for ICU nurses on common OR cases at my hospital. My first OR case topic will be on DIEP Flaps for breast reconstruction s/p mastectomy. I was wondering if you guys can provide me with ANY and ALL questions you would want to know while caring for DIEP flaps in the ICU. The questions can be about any aspect of DIEP Flap management - i.e., doppler checks, drains, mobility, diet, leech therapy, complications, IV therapy, medications, etc - any question you can think of.
Thank you in advance.
