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

ESEP and integrated researcher of CINTESIS, Escola Superior de Enfermagem do Porto (ESEP), Rua Dr. António Bernardino de Almeida, 4200-072 Porto, Portugal; ICBAS -Instituto de Ciências Biomédicas Abel Salazar, Universityof Porto, Rua de Jorge Viterbo Ferreira, 228, 4050-313 Porto, Portugal; CINTESIS - Centro de Investigação em Tecnologias e Serviços de Saúde, Rua Dr. Plácido da Costa, 4200-450, Porto, Portugal.

Objectives: The aim of this systematic review is to synthesize the current best evidence for the effectiveness of weaning protocols led by nurses compared with usual physician-led care.

Background: Protocol-directed weaning has been shown to reduce the duration of mechanical ventilation. Studies have reported that a weaning protocol administered by nurses leads to a reduction in the duration of mechanical ventilation and has a major effect on weaning outcomes. 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

High-energy nutrition in paediatric cardiac critical care patients: a randomized controlled trial.

Nurs Crit Care 2018 Dec 9. Epub 2018 Dec 9.

Nursing Department, Children's Hospital of Fudan University, Shanghai, People's Republic of China.

Background: Previous studies have shown that feeding a high-energy formula (HF) to infants after cardiac surgery increases energy intake, with fewer side effects on cardiopulmonary function. However, impacts on weight gain and gastrointestinal function remain unclear.

Aims And Objectives: To determine the impact of HF compared with standard formula on weight gain and gastrointestinal tolerance in postoperative infants with congenital heart disease. Read More

Nurs Crit Care 2018 Dec 9. Epub 2018 Dec 9.

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

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

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 2018 Dec 2. 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.

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

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

IDIBAPS, Barcelona, Spain.

Introduction: Treatment of infections that require high-level isolation can cause anxiety and fear among health care workers. Adequate and complete multi-professional simulation-based training could reduce those feelings and improve patient care.

Objective: The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of multi-professional simulation-based training on the risk perception and preparedness of health care workers (registered nurses, doctors and ancillary staff) who care for patients assessed to be at risk or confirmed to have Ebola, level 3-4 biohazard.

Organ donation: reducing the risk of health care-associated infection.

Nurs Crit Care 2018 Sep 26. Epub 2018 Sep 26.

Division of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work, University of Manchester, Oxford Road, Manchester M13 9PL, UK.

Health care-associated infection is a real and relative risk within the realm of organ donation. Despite detailed guidance from the Advisory Committee on the Safety of Blood, Tissues and Organs on the microbiological safety of human organs, tissues and cells used in transplantation, the topic has received limited exposure in the literature. This paper will give a context to the Safety of Blood, Tissues and Organs guidance, outline the key recommendations for mandatory/recommended screening and provide a summary of infections that may be present at the time of donation that require careful risk assessment.

School of Clinical Sciences, Auckland University of Technology (AUT), Northcote, Auckland, New Zealand.

Background: Intensive care nursing is a professionally challenging role, elucidated in the body of research focusing on nurses' ill-being, including burnout, stress, moral distress and compassion fatigue. Although scant, research is growing in relation to the elements contributing to critical care nurses' workplace well-being. Little is currently known about how intensive care nurse well-being is strengthened in the workplace, particularly from the intensive care nurse perspective. Read More
