The rationale behind the new definitions, screening tools, and treatment guidelines. ABSTRACT: Sepsis is an extreme response to infection that can cause tissue damage, organ failure, and death if not treated promptly and appropriately. Each year in the United States, sepsis affects more than 1.5 million people and kills roughly 250,000. Prompt recognition and treatment of sepsis are essential to saving lives, and nurses play a critical role in the early detection of sepsis, as they are often first to recognize the signs and symptoms of infection...

Findings reveal the importance of including childhood ailments as potential pain sources. ABSTRACT: Purpose: Children with medical complexity experience frequent pain. But it can be challenging to recognize unexpected behaviors as pain related, especially in the absence of self-report. Often these children undergo extensive workups aimed at diagnosing the sources of pain. This study had three objectives: to describe the signs and symptoms parents of nonverbal children with medical complexity found worrisome, to describe the sources of pain in these children, and to describe nursing pain assessment practices in this population...

Recent updates have led to variations in national recommendations. ABSTRACT: Breast cancer accounts for more than a quarter million diagnoses each year in the United States. Routine screening is the primary method used to detect cancer in its earliest stages, before symptoms develop. Recent changes to national screening guidelines have resulted in a lack of consensus and confusion among health care providers and the public. This article reviews the guidelines of the American Cancer Society, the U...

: Background: Establishing peripheral IV access for infusions is one of the most common invasive procedures performed in the hospital setting, but it isn't always successful on the first attempt. Multiple attempts delay treatment and cause stress in patients and nurses. The literature reports that venipuncture skills are among the most challenging for novice nurses to master. OBJECTIVES: The goal of this quality improvement (QI) initiative was to develop, validate, and refine a simple evidence-based tool that novice nurses can use in the clinical setting to better identify those patients with preexisting conditions or anatomical variances that result in difficult IV access...

Editor's note: From its first issue in 1900 through to the present day, AJN has unparalleled archives detailing nurses' work and lives over more than a century. These articles not only chronicle nursing's growth as a profession within the context of the events of the day, but they also reveal prevailing societal attitudes about women, health care, and human rights. Today's nursing school curricula rarely include nursing's history, but it's a history worth knowing. To this end, From the AJN Archives highlights articles selected to fit today's topics and times...
