BACKGROUND: The ABCDE interprofessional bundle (Awakening and Breathing Coordination, Delirium monitoring and management, and Early mobility) reduces delirium and weakness in critically ill patients. OBJECTIVE: To understand the relationship between organizational domains and provider attitudes. METHODS: A 1-time electronic survey of 315 care providers in 10 intensive care units across the country to examine associations between organizational domains (policy/protocol factors, unit milieu, tasks, labor quality, labor quantity, and physical environment) and provider attitudes about perceived ease of completion, perceived safety, confidence, and perceived strength of evidence regarding the ABCDE bundle...

Ann-Marie Brown, Christine Perebzak, Colleen Handwork, M David Gothard, Kristine Nagy
BACKGROUND: The preferred route for providing nutrition in the pediatric intensive care unit is enteral. Placement of postpyloric feeding tubes using an electromagnetic-tipped stylet that emits a signal detected by a device held over the patient's abdomen is effective in adult intensive care units, but has not been well studied in pediatric units. OBJECTIVES: To determine the effectiveness of the electromagnetic device in reducing the numbers of radiation exposures, intrahospital transports, tubes used, and tube placement attempts in the pediatric intensive care unit...

#7
Kyoung Suk Lee, Debra K Moser, Michele Pelter, Martha J Biddle, Kathleen Dracup
BACKGROUND: Comorbid depression in patients with heart failure is associated with increased risk for death. In order to effectively identify depressed patients with cardiac disease, the American Heart Association suggests a 2-step screening method: administering the 2-item Patient Health Questionnaire first and then the 9-item Patient Health Questionnaire. However, whether the 2-step method is better for predicting poor prognosis in heart failure than is either the 2-item or the 9-item tool alone is not known...

BACKGROUND: The paradigm is shifting from separating family members from their children during resuscitation to one of patient- and family-centered care. However, widespread acceptance is still lacking. OBJECTIVE: To measure attitudes, behaviors, and experiences of family members of pediatric patients during the resuscitation phase of trauma care, including family members who were present and those who were not. METHODS: An observational mixed-methods study using structured interviews and focus groups was conducted at 3 level 1 pediatric trauma centers...

BACKGROUND: The association of family-witnessed cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and subsequent advance directives in the medical intensive care unit is unknown. OBJECTIVE: To compare clinical outcomes, including subsequent limitations on care, of family-witnessed vs family-unwitnessed CPR in the inpatient setting. METHODS: Analysis of demographics and outcomes pertaining to family presence in a retrospective cohort of consecutive patients receiving first CPR in the medical intensive care unit of a tertiary academic medical center...

Breanna Hetland, Ruth Lindquist, Craig R Weinert, Cynthia Peden-McAlpine, Kay Savik, Linda Chlan
BACKGROUND: Weaning from mechanical ventilation requires increased respiratory effort, which can heighten anxiety and later prolong the need for mechanical ventilation. OBJECTIVES: To examine the predictive associations of music intervention, anxiety, sedative exposure, and patients' characteristics on time to initiation and duration of weaning trials of patients receiving mechanical ventilation. METHODS: A descriptive, correlational design was used for a secondary analysis of data from a randomized trial...

Emily S Stanton, Cary Hilbert, Stephanie Maillie, C Jessica Dine, Scott D Halpern, Meeta Prasad Kerlin
BACKGROUND: Evidence suggests that in-person management by nighttime intensivists does not change patients' mortality rates in high-intensity intensive care units. OBJECTIVE: To better understand domains affected by nighttime intensivist staffing not previously measured. METHODS: Semistructured interviews of 13 night-shift nurses in an academic medical intensive care unit to elicit perceptions of nighttime staffing with attending intensivists versus residents with attending intensivists on call remotely...

BACKGROUND: The Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems survey is the most commonly used instrument for measuring patients' perceptions of the quality of inpatient care. OBJECTIVE: To determine if the hospital survey can also be used to measure patients' experience of intensive care as indicated by scores on a parallel questionnaire, the Patient Perception of Quality. METHODS: Scores on both instruments of all adult patients admitted to an intensive care unit from 2007 through 2012 were analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Job stress and cumulative exposure to traumatic events experienced by critical care nurses can lead to psychological distress and the development of burnout syndrome and posttraumatic stress disorder. Resilience can mitigate symptoms associated with these conditions. OBJECTIVE: To identify factors that affect resilience and to determine if the factors have direct or indirect effects on resilience in development of posttraumatic stress disorder. METHODS: Data from 744 respondents to a survey mailed to 3500 critical care nurses who were members of the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses were analyzed...

Norma A Metheny, Kathleen L Meert
BACKGROUND: Patients sometimes require insertion of a nasogastric tube for the administration of a large volume of a polyethylene glycol electrolyte solution. If the tube is malpositioned, the risk for direct instillation of the solution into the lung increases. The risk for aspiration also increases if the infusion rate exceeds gastrointestinal tolerance. PURPOSE: To review published cases of patients' experiencing adverse pulmonary events after administration of polyethylene glycol electrolyte solution via a nasogastric tube and to offer suggestions to prevent these outcomes...
