The SANDWICH intervention is a quality improvement care bundle with four interrelated and interdependent components. Each component part is essential to the overall intervention, therefore delivering each component is equally important.
The components of the care bundle are:
Regular assessment of sedation using the COMFORT Original/ COMFORT B score
Twice daily assessment of readiness for a Spontaneous Breathing Trial
Conducting a Spontaneous Breathing Trial if criteria are met
Multidisciplinary ward round daily to discuss
Child's sedation score and sedation requirements
Set COMFORT Original / COMFORT B target for the shift
