BACKGROUND: Critical-care nurses play a vital role in promoting safe early mobilization in intensive care unit (ICU) settings to reduce the risks associated with immobility in ICUs, including the risk of delirium, ICU-acquired weakness, and functional decline. OBJECTIVE: The purposes of this study were to describe nurse-led mobilization practices in 2 community hospital ICUs and to report differences and similarities between the 2 settings. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional exploratory study of 18 nurses (ICU A: n = 12, ICU B: n = 6) and 124 patients (ICU A: n = 50, ICU B: n = 74)...

BACKGROUND: Patients of adult intensive care units (ICUs) often suffer from a lack of sleep. Reducing anxiety by promoting adaptation to the ICU prior to admission may be an appropriate way to increase sleep quality. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact on sleep quality of a brief nurse intervention. METHODS: This was a pilot randomized controlled trial in Spain. Forty patients admitted in hospital for valve cardiac surgery were randomly allocated to (1) control group (n = 20), receiving usual care, and to (2) experimental group (EG, n = 20), receiving a nurse intervention the day before surgery and admission in the ICU...

Data collection and management are often neglected subjects of qualitative research. Qualitative data collection, management, and analysis are complex and challenging for researchers especially for early career and doctoral students. These processes involve anticipating for ethical issues and developing means and methods for collecting, recording, and storing data securely. Approaches to data analysis include organizing, reading, coding, and organizing themes, representing, and interpreting the data. The unanticipated issues in accomplishing these steps and corresponding solutions are presented...

INTRODUCTION: Oral care, using either a mouth rinse, gel, toothbrush, or combination of them, together with aspiration of secretions, may reduce the risk of ventilator-acquired pneumonia in intubated patents. Oral care procedure in patients on venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VV-ECMO) may cause bleeding due to the systemic anticoagulation required. PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to investigate the rate of bleeding episodes during oral care in patients supported by VV-ECMO...

Hamiyet Kzl, Merdiye Şendir
AIM: This study is a quasi-experimental research that was conducted to evaluate the effects of bathing on vital signs and oxygen saturation in intubated children who are connected to mechanical ventilation. METHODS: The study sample consisted of children who are treated in the pediatric intensive care unit, University of Istanbul Cerrahpasa Faculty of Medicine Hospital. A total of 60 children who met the criteria of the sample group were included in the study. The children were given bed bathing with plain warm water of 32°C to 38°C on 3 different days...

BACKGROUND: The rapid response system (RRS) was designed to identify and intervene on patients exhibiting clinical deterioration in the non-critical-care setting but is not always effectively activated by nurses, leading to adverse patient outcomes. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this systematic review was to explore nurses' perceived barriers to RRS activation in the acute adult inpatient setting. METHOD: A systematic review was completed utilizing the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analysis checklist...

BACKGROUND: Critical care nurses (CCNs) frequently provide end-of-life (EOL) care for critically ill patients. Critical care nurses may face many obstacles while trying to provide quality EOL care. Some research focusing on obstacles CCNs face while trying to provide quality EOL care has been published; however, research focusing on family behavior obstacles is limited. Research focusing on family behavior as an EOL care obstacle may provide additional insight and improvement in care...

In order to gain expertise, intensive care unit nurses must have a good understanding of the pathophysiology and complicated disease processes seen in their units. Nurse educators and critical-care preceptors must be able to explain these complex concepts to a wide variety of audiences including nursing students, graduate nurses, and experienced critical-care nurses. Many times, demonstrations, analogies, visual aids, games, and creative teaching methods can help communicate these complicated ideas. The purpose of this article is to provide ideas for nurse educators and preceptors to use when explaining concepts that may be encountered with patients in a critical-care setting...

BACKGROUND: Heredity hemochromatosis (HH) is an underdiagnosed genetic disease that can lead to life-threatening multisystem organ failure. Identifying and treating HH early can prevent the progression of the disease. CASE PRESENTATION: For a 60-year-old white patient without obvious symptoms, it was a revelation to discover that he had HH. This patient, although receiving evidence-based care, ultimately required a liver transplant. As his condition deteriorated, the plan for this patient and his family involved working within an interdisciplinary team that included nurse practitioners and intensive care unit nurses...

BACKGROUND: Policies, procedures, and guidelines standardize care, meet regulatory requirements, and can promote safety in clinical practice. The existing protocols, policies, guidelines, and directives (PPGDs) at a level 1 trauma academic medical center were underused by the intensive care unit clinicians and did not always clearly represent the supporting evidence. AIMS: The goals of this project were to update the Critical Care Practice Manual (CCPM) and to ensure that clinical practice was aligned with best evidence...

BACKGROUND: This 3-year study measured the satisfaction of staff nurses with medical emergency team (MET) nurse services at a 573-bed hospital in the south from 2015 through 2017. Nurse satisfaction is a key management issue. Barriers to effective MET use can negatively impact patient outcomes, staffing, and nurse turnover. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to assess nurse satisfaction with MET nurses at a large county hospital in the south over a 3-year period...

BACKGROUND: Education on family presence during resuscitation (FPDR) has been shown to improve critical care nurses' support for FPDR; however, there have been limited studies in this area. Exploring nurses' perceived needs related to FPDR education is important to design educational interventions to promote FPDR in practice. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to explore the FPDR education needs of critical care nurses to provide recommendations for future educational interventions...

Rose Bruce, Cheryl Forry
In recent years, early progressive mobilization programs have become mainstays in intensive care units (ICUs). Significant evidence exists that early mobility programs decrease length of stay, reduce time on the ventilator, and decrease the development of delirium in ICU patients. Yet, current literature still describes many barriers to performing early mobility, such as the time required, staffing pressures, and increased workload. Our critical care leaders found that defining and implementing a dedicated mobility champion team member was successful in improving the effectiveness of our early mobility program...
