What is the ABCDEF Bundle?

Additionally, the ABCDEF bundle is an interdependent, multi-component, evidence-based guidance for the coordination of multidisciplinary ICU care that can be used to execute many of the symptom-based ICU PAD guidelines. Moreover, the ABCDEF bundle has a component that corresponds with each letter of the acronym. Also, these 6 components include:

  • A: Assess, prevent, and manage pain
  • B: Both Spontaneous Awakening Trials (SAT) and Spontaneous Breathing Trials (SBT)
  • C: Choice of analgesia and sedation
  • D: Delirium: Assess, prevent, and manage
  • E: Early mobility and Exercise
  • F: Family engagement and empowerment

While each of these aspects of the bundle is extremely important in carrying out care in the ICU, some healthcare facilities may be unaware of these skills or may need a refresher. To help your healthcare facility with these skills today, click the button below.
