Public involvement in designing a study on patient-witnessed cardiopulmonary resuscitation in hospital.

Nurs Crit Care 2019 Apr 17. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

School of Nursing and Midwifery, Faculty of Health and Human Sciences, University of Plymouth, Plymouth, UK.

The aim of this paper is to report the findings of the consultation rounds with former patients and health care professionals to inform the design of a qualitative study. We aimed to understand stakeholders' views regarding the relevance of a proposed study looking at the impact of patients witnessing cardiopulmonary resuscitation on other patients in hospital, the appropriateness of the proposed methodology and ethical aspects. We conducted an online survey (n = 22) and telephone interviews (n = 4) with former patients linked to the British Heart Foundation charity and a focus group (n = 15) with hospital health care professionals involved in cardiopulmonary resuscitation activities.

Cardiovascular nurses' adherence to practice standards in in-hospital telemetry monitoring.

Nurs Crit Care 2019 Apr 10. Epub 2019 Apr 10.

Department of Heart Disease, Haukeland University Hospital, Bergen, Norway.

Correct electrode placement and proper skin preparation for cardiac telemetry monitoring of patients at risk for arrhythmias increases the quality of the arrhythmic surveillance. Inconsistent arrhythmia surveillance can compromise patient safety and care outcomes. An inspection of international literature demonstrates that nurses generally do not adhere to cardiac monitoring standards. Read More

Transferring critically ill babies and children home to die from intensive care.

Nurs Crit Care 2019 Mar 25. Epub 2019 Mar 25.

School of Health Sciences, University of Southampton, UK.

Background: A significant proportion of hospital deaths occur in intensive care units (ICU) and often follow a decision to limit or withdraw life-sustaining treatment. Facilitating the preferred choice in place of death for babies/children is increasingly being advocated, although the literature on a home death is often limited to case reports.

Aims And Objectives: To examine (1) health care professionals' (HCPs) views and experience of transferring babies/children home to die from intensive care, (2) patient clinical characteristics that HCPs would consider transferring home and (3) barriers to transferring home. Read More

The experience of being a couple during an intensive care unit admission.

Nurs Crit Care 2019 Mar 25. Epub 2019 Mar 25.

Institute of Public Health, Section for Nursing, University of Aarhus, Aarhus, Denmark.

Background: In critical care nursing, a trend has been seen towards growing attention to the family experience of critical illness. Despite trends moving towards care of the family as a unit, previous research has focused on individual family members' experience of critical illness. Exploring the life world of the family, especially that of spouses and their interaction, is essential to providing family-centred critical care and has not previously been described. Read More

Effects of massage on outcomes of adult intensive care unit patients: a systematic review.

Nurs Crit Care 2019 Mar 4. Epub 2019 Mar 4.

Faculty of Nursing, Edmonton Clinic Health Academy, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada.

Background: The critical care experience is particularly stressful for patients, which can result in a number of physiological and psychological consequences, including haemodynamic instability, increased pain, agitation and delirium, leading to prolonged mechanical ventilation, length of stay and subsequent complications. Massage therapy encompasses different techniques to promote relaxation and to counter stress, therefore potentially affecting several patients' outcomes.

Aims: To systematically review evidence on the effects of massage on outcomes of adult critically ill patients. Read More

Nursing staff's experiences of intensive care unit diaries: a qualitative study.

Nurs Crit Care 2019 Jan 24. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Department of Health and Caring Sciences, Linnaeus University, Kalmar, Sweden.

Background: Diaries as an intervention to aid psychological recovery among intensive care patients have been used for about 20 years, and findings tend to be positive. The provision of a diary directed at the patient may clarify the story of the intensive care unit (ICU) even for the family members and the family members of non-survivors. Members of nursing staff are the primary authors, but how they themselves experience the use of ICU diaries has been minimally explored. Read More

Sound isolation and music on the comfort of mechanically ventilated critical patients.

Nurs Crit Care 2018 Dec 27. Epub 2018 Dec 27.

Critical Care Department, Althaia Xarxa Assistencial Universitària de Manresa, Barcelona, Spain.

Objectives: To assess the effect of sound isolation versus music on the comfort of mechanically ventilated patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) as a combined measurement of the hypnotic level, the level of sedation and the alteration of behaviour because of pain.

Introduction: Patients admitted to the ICU who require mechanical ventilation are surrounded by an ambient noise level ranging from 60 to 90 dB, well above the 40 dB recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Methods: This was a randomized crossover clinical trial. Read More

Children's Hospital of Nanjing Medical University, Nanjing, China.

Aim: To compare and evaluate the efficacy and safety of continuous and intermittent control of cuff pressure.

Methods: We performed a comprehensive and systematic meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) assessing the continuous and intermittent control of P by searching PUBMED, EMBASE and other such databases (from inception to 31 March 2018). Summary odds ratios or mean differences with 95% confidence intervals were calculated using a fixed- or random-effects model. Read More

Unintentional endotracheal tube cuff deflation during routine checks: a simulation study.

Nurs Crit Care 2019 Mar 2;24(2):83-88. Epub 2018 Dec 2.

The Critical Care Department, The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King's Lynn, UK.

Background: Endotracheal tube cuff pressures should be maintained between 20 and 30 cm H O to prevent the aspiration of subglottic secretions past the cuff. Guidance recommends regular monitoring of the cuff pressure, performed using a handheld manometer/inflator. Poor technique can lead to transient deflation of the cuff, leading to the bolus aspiration of upper respiratory tract secretions, tracheal colonization and, ultimately, ventilator-associated pneumonia.

How different helmet fixing options could affect patients' pain experience during helmet-continuous positive airway pressure.

Nurs Crit Care 2018 Nov 20. Epub 2018 Nov 20.

General Intensive Care Unit, Emergency Department, ASST Monza - San Gerardo Hospital, University of Milano-Bicocca, Monza, MB, Italy.

Background: Prolonged application time of helmet continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) leads to better outcomes, but its timing can be influenced by the patient's tolerance.

Aims And Objectives: To investigate patients' pain and tolerance experience related to different options of helmet fixing system: 'armpits strap' versus 'counterweights system'.

Design: This was a non-randomized crossover study performed in a 10-bed intensive care unit and referral extra corporeal membrane oxigenation (ECMO) centre of an Italian university hospital. Read More
