BACKGROUND: Acute allograft rejection appears to be associated with increases in QT/QTc intervals. OBJECTIVES: To determine the relationship between acute allograft rejection and electrocardiogram changes in patients undergoing an orthotopic heart transplant. METHODS: The study population comprised 220 adult patients undergoing heart transplant and enrolled in the NEW HEART study. Electrocardiograms obtained within 72 hours of endomyocardial biopsy were analyzed; electrocardiograms obtained fewer than 10 days after transplant surgery were excluded...

BACKGROUND: Clinical practice guidelines recommend enteral nutrition for most patients receiving mechanical ventilation. However, recently published evidence on the effect of enteral nutrition on mortality, particularly for patients who are well nourished, is conflicting. OBJECTIVES: To examine the association between enteral feeding and hospital mortality in critically ill patients receiving mechanical ventilation and to determine if body mass index mediates this relationship...

BACKGROUND: Delirium occurs frequently in the intensive care unit and is associated with detrimental consequences. Cognitive training is a promising, nonpharmacologic, preventive intervention, but it is unknown whether cognitive training is feasible for patients in intensive care units. OBJECTIVES: To examine the feasibility for both nurses and patients of using cognitive training exercises for intensive care unit patients. METHODS: A pilot study of a set of cognitive training exercises in a large, academic intensive care unit...

BACKGROUND: Alarm fatigue is a widely acknowledged patient safety concern in hospitals. In 2013, The Joint Commission issued a National Patient Safety Goal on Alarm Management, making addressing alarm management a priority. To capture changes in attitudes and practices related to alarms, the Healthcare Technology Foundation conducted and reported findings from national online surveys in 2006 and 2011 and completed a third survey in 2016. OBJECTIVES: The goal of the 2016 survey was to identify how hospital practices and clinicians' perceptions of alarms have changed since 2006...

BACKGROUND: Although higher backrest elevation may be a theoretical risk for integrity of sacral tissues, few data support use of high backrest elevation. OBJECTIVE: To describe the effect of backrest elevation on the integrity of sacral tissue in critically ill adults receiving mechanical ventilation. METHODS: Patients from 3 critical care units (surgical trauma, medical respiratory, and neuroscience) who were expected to have mechanical ventilation for at least 24 hours were intubated and mechanical ventilation was started...

BACKGROUND: Community-acquired pneumonia is one of the most common infectious diseases and can be fatal. The benefits of early rehabilitation in intensive care units are known, but the association between early rehabilitation and in-hospital mortality of patients with community-acquired pneumonia admitted to intensive care units has not been studied. OBJECTIVES: To study the association between early rehabilitation and the in-hospital mortality of patients with community- acquired pneumonia admitted to intensive care units, effects of early rehabilitation on unit and hospital lengths of stay, and total costs of hospitalization...

BACKGROUND: Patients who receive prolonged endotracheal intubation (> 48 hours) are at risk for dysphagia. Nurses should conduct swallowing assessments after extubation because of the high likelihood of aspiration pneumonia developing. No valid and reliable postextubation dysphagia screening tools are available. OBJECTIVES: To establish content validity, analyze interrater reliability, and determine sensitivity and specificity of an evidence-based postextubation dysphagia screening tool developed by a multidisciplinary team...

BACKGROUND: The incidence and long-term outcomes of acute kidney injury in patients with severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) due to influenza A(H1N1) pdm09 virus (pH1N1) have not been examined. OBJECTIVE: To assess long-term renal recovery in patients with acute kidney injury and severe ARDS due to pH1N1. METHODS: A retrospective observational cohort study of adults with severe pH1N1-associated ARDS admitted to a tertiary referral center...

BACKGROUND: Moral distress in registered nurses causes decreased job satisfaction, turnover in staffing, burnout, and heightened states of psychological distress. To date, investigation of modifiable factors, such as perceptions of the practice environment and patient safety, among a diverse sample of critical care nurses has been limited. OBJECTIVE: To explore the relationships among the severity of moral distress, the practice environment, and patient safety in a national sample of critical care nurses...

BACKGROUND: Family-centered care is a proposed way of supporting family involvement with a child's care and decreasing distress associated with a child's critical illness by improving communication, helping manage stress and coping, and decreasing conflicts. Nurses are critical to successful implementation of family-centered care. OBJECTIVES: To describe nurses' perceptions of the benefits and challenges of providing family-centered care in pediatric intensive care units...

BACKGROUND: Methods and frequency of temperature monitoring in intensive care unit patients vary widely. The recently available SpotOn system uses zero-heat-flux technology and offers a noninvasive method for continuous monitoring of core temperature of critical care patients at risk for alterations in body temperature. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate agreement between and precision of a zero-heat-flux thermometry system (SpotOn) and continuous rectal and urinary bladder thermometry during fever and defervescence in adult patients in intensive care units...
