Job-related burnout has been reported by intensive care nurses worldwide; this study was performed to examine burnout in intensive care unit bedside nurses and nurse technicians in Brazil. A cross-sectional survey that included the Practice Environment Scale and the Maslach Burnout Inventory was completed by 209 nurses and nurse technicians working in 4 Brazilian intensive care units in 3 teaching hospitals. Compared with nurse technicians, nurses reported higher levels of emotional exhaustion and depersonalization, and a lower level of personal accomplishment. Read More

Tunneled Pleural Catheter: Treatment for Recurrent Pleural Effusion.

AACN Adv Crit Care 2018 ;29(4):432-441

Hilaire Thompson is Joanne Montgomery Endowed Professor and Lead, Adult/Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Program, University of Washington School of Nursing, Seattle, Washington.

Recurrent pleural effusion is a symptom of several end-stage diseases and is associated with limited life expectancy. Patients with this condition have disabling symptoms resulting in reduced quality of life and often receive inconsistent treatment due to delayed recognition of pleural effusion, repeat procedures, and lengthy hospitalizations. Placement of a tunneled pleural catheter allows the patient to manage his or her symptoms at home, yet this treatment remains underused because of provider misconceptions and unfamiliarity with the intervention.

Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome and Prone Positioning.

AACN Adv Crit Care 2018 ;29(4):415-425

Dannette A. Mitchell is Critical Care Clinical Nurse Specialist, Christiana Care Health Service, Wilmington Hospital, 501 W 14th Street, Intensive Care and Transitional Care Unit - 6S45, Wilmington, DE 19801 Maureen A. Seckel is Lead Critical Care Clinical Nurse Specialist and Sepsis Leader, Christiana Care Health Service, Christiana Hospital, Newark, Delaware.

Acute respiratory distress syndrome continues to have high morbidity and mortality despite more than 50 years of research. The Berlin definition in 2012 established risk stratification based on degree of hypoxemia and the use of positive end-expiratory pressure. The use of prone positioning as a treatment modality has been studied for more than 40 years, with recent studies showing an improvement in oxygenation and decreased mortality. Read More

John J. Gallagher is Trauma Program Manager/Clinical Nurse Specialist at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, 51 N 39th Street, Medical Office Building, Suite 120, Philadelphia, PA 19104

Modern mechanical ventilators are more complex than those first developed in the 1950s. Newer ventilation modes can be difficult to understand and implement clinically, although they provide more treatment options than traditional modes. These newer modes, which can be considered alternative or nontraditional, generally are classified as either volume controlled or pressure controlled. Read More

AACN Adv Crit Care 2018 ;29(3):336-342

Anne-Marie McBride is Clinical Nurse, Intensive Care, Calvary North Adelaide Hospital, 23 Strangways Terrace, North Adelaide, 5006 Australia

Obstetric emergencies often require intensive care intervention. Amniotic fluid embolism is a rare, unpredictable, and often catastrophic complication of pregnancy that is suspected in a woman who experiences cardiac arrest after a cesarean section. The condition occurs in approximately 1 in 40 000 births and has an average case-fatality rate of 16%. Read More

AACN Adv Crit Care 2018 ;29(3):327-335

Rebecca L. Cypher is a Perinatal Nurse Practitioner and Consultant, 7814 108th St NW, Gig Harbor, WA 98332

Pulmonary edema is an acute pregnancy complication that, if uncorrected, can result in increased maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. Although pulmonary edema is relatively rare in the general obstetrics population, pregnant patients are at increased risk for pulmonary edema because of the physiologic changes of pregnancy. The risk may be exacerbated by certain pregnancy-related diseases, such as preeclampsia. Read More

Sheryl E. Parfitt is Clinical Educator, HonorHealth Scottsdale Shea Medical Center, 9003 E. Shea Boulevard, Scottsdale, AZ 85260 Sandra L. Hering is Informatics Support Specialist, Honor-Health Scottsdale Shea Medical Center, Scottsdale, Arizona.

Sepsis is one of the principal causes of maternal mortality in obstetrics. Physiologic changes that occur during pregnancy create a vulnerable environment, predisposing pregnant patients to the development of sepsis. Furthermore, these changes can mask sepsis indicators normally seen in the nonobstetric population, making it difficult to recognize and treat sepsis in a timely manner. Read More
