I often see post op CABG patients in our CVcu unit for Occupational therapy for early mobilization, ADL retraining, edcation for sternal precautions, energyconservation n pursed lip.breathing techniques .All of our patients have post op dvt prophylaxis order from our CVT team. My question is if my patient is now positivel for DVT, does anybody has any protocol or evidence based practices in better addressing this issue? Some of our doctors are hesitant to allow my patients to be mobilized due to risk of PE. Some kinda play it by ear... If the PT PT Inr are within normal values , then they allow patients to resume activity any thoughts ? Any one?
