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...

Hildy M Schell-Chaple, Kathleen D Liu, Michael A Matthay, Kathleen A Puntillo
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...

BACKGROUND: Sedation and analgesia have an important impact on the outcome of patients treated with mechanical ventilation. International guidelines recommend use of sedation protocols to ensure best patient care. OBJECTIVE: To determine the sedation practice of intensive care nurses weaning adults from mechanical ventilation. METHODS: A cross-sectional survey with a self-administered questionnaire was used to determine sedation practices of Flemish critical care nurses during weaning...

Norma A Metheny, Leslie J Hinyard, Kahee A Mohammed
BACKGROUND: Endotracheal and nasogastric tubes are recognized risk factors for nosocomial sinusitis. The extent to which these tubes affect the overall incidence of nosocomial sinusitis in acute care hospitals is unknown. OBJECTIVE: To use data for 2008 through 2013 from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample database to compare the incidence of sinusitis in patients with nasogastric tubes with that in patients with an endotracheal tube alone or with both an endotracheal tube and a nasogastric tube...

Halley Ruppel, Marjorie Funk, Robin Whittemore
BACKGROUND: Alarm fatigue threatens patient safety by delaying or reducing clinician response to alarms, which can lead to missed critical events. Interventions to reduce alarms without jeopardizing patient safety target either inaccurate or clinically irrelevant alarms, so assessment of alarm accuracy and clinical relevance may enhance the rigor of alarm intervention studies done in clinical units. OBJECTIVES: To (1) examine approaches used to measure accuracy and/or clinical relevance of physiological monitor alarms in intensive care units and (2) compare the proportions of inaccurate and clinically irrelevant alarms...

Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) is a common household item that has gained popularity as an alternative cancer treatment. Some have speculated that alkali therapy neutralizes the extracellular acidity of tumor cells that promotes metastases. Internet blogs have touted alkali as a safe and natural alternative to chemotherapy that targets cancer cells without systemic effects. Sodium bicarbonate overdose is uncommon, with few reports of toxic effects in humans. The case described here is the first reported case of severe metabolic alkalosis related to topical use of sodium bicarbonate as a treatment for cancer...

OBJECTIVE: To compare survival, hospitalization, and complications in heart transplant recipients during the first 3 years after surgery in recipients with or without diabetes mellitus before transplant. METHODS: Of 347 recipients, 64 were diabetic (35.9% taking insulin; mean age 56 years; 17.2% females; 12.5% minorities) and 283 were not (mean age 51 years; 20...

BACKGROUND: The cardiovascular and surgical intensive care units had the highest unit-acquired pressure injury rates at an institution. Patients in these units had multiple risk factors for pressure injuries. Various interventions had been used to minimize pressure injuries, with limited results. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effect of specialty linens on the rate of pressure injuries in high-risk patients. The specialty linen was a synthetic silklike fabric that addressed the microclimate surrounding the patient, with the purpose of minimizing friction, shear, moisture, and heat...
