OBJECTIVES: This study investigated the level of cortisol under different stressful situations and its relationship with sleep and anxiety in female college students. METHODS: Salivary cortisol was measured 6 times a day during a routine period free of examination stress and a stressful period. Area under the curve (AUC) was calculated for cortisol level for awakening response (AUCAG) and during the day (AUCTG). Sleep characteristics and anxiety were measured using an actigraph and the Spielberger State-Trait Anxiety Inventory, respectively, during the different periods...

Throughout the past 50 years, the role of the neuroscience nurse has become more specialized as we continue to keep pace with new innovations and improvement in care for our patients. This is evident when reviewing the hundreds of articles that have been published in the Journal of Neuroscience Nursing over the last half-century. These authors have had a tremendous influence over neuroscience nursing through dissemination of their expert knowledge. This article will review the areas of pediatric hydrocephalus, brain tumors, and epilepsy and the role neuroscience nurses have played in the advancement of these specialties...

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a frequent and potentially fatal complication of immobility caused by cerebrovascular disease. This review examines the efficiency of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) prophylaxis methods. Patients with stroke initiated on DVT prophylaxis were compared with those who did not have any prophylaxis. Integrative review research design was used and included articles from 2010 to 2016. Search terms such as "DVT prophylaxis" and "stroke" were used to identify scientific publications...

OBJECTIVE: To enhance nursing staff retention and ensure a consistently high standard of care, a study was conducted to determine an appropriate nurse staffing model for a neurocritical care unit. In addition to being critically ill, these patients often require extensive diagnostic testing to determine treatment. Nurses traveling with patients leave higher nurse-patient ratios remaining on the unit. METHODS: Prospective observation was used to assess relationships between neurologic assessment, documentation, and the amount of time spent traveling with patients...

OBJECTIVE: This study focused on gaining insight into the positive changes of stroke survivors. This study aimed to describe the level of posttraumatic growth (PTG) and explore its correlation with rumination and social support in stroke survivors. The impacts of individual characteristics on PTG were also discussed. METHODS: A descriptive correlation design was used in this study. Stroke survivors from a tertiary hospital in Guangzhou City were investigated. The Posttraumatic Growth Inventory, Chinese version of Event Related Rumination Inventory, and Perceived Social Support Scale were used to assess the level of PTG, rumination, and social support...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of different head of bed (HOB) elevations and body positions on intracranial pressure (ICP) and cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) and to identify safe positions for neurosurgical patients with different Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) scores. METHODS: This study with a quasi-experimental, prospective repeated measures is designed with control over the intervention consisted of 30 patients hospitalized in the neurocritical care units (NCU)...

With limited time and resources in the acute care hospital, the most effective methods of stroke education are crucial. A combination of methods of one-on-one counseling or teaching, print, and video has been shown to have the greatest effect. Video education is a component of a combination educational approach. This evaluation from a large integrated system comprising 21 medical facilities compared patient satisfaction data with stroke education from 5 facilities that have video educational services and print materials and 17 facilities that provide print materials only...

INTRODUCTION: Vasopressors are commonly used after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) to sustain cerebral pressure gradients. Yet, the relationship between vasopressors and the degree of cerebral microcirculatory support achieved remains unclear. This study aimed to explore the changes in cerebral and peripheral regional tissue oxygen saturation (rSO2) as well as blood pressure (BP) before and after vasopressor infusion in patients with aSAH. METHODS: Continuous noninvasive cerebral and peripheral rSO2 was obtained using near-infrared spectroscopy for up to 14 days after aSAH...

BACKGROUND: Traumatic brain injury and cerebrovascular disease may lead to motor, behavioral, and/or cognitive disabilities. The associated neurologic and vascular damage triggers a chain of events that lead to a secondary brain injury (SBI), a preventable cause of adverse neurological outcomes. Proper prevention of these factors may limit undesirable outcomes. This article presents a concept analysis that aims to form a single definition of the term secondary brain injury for nursing personnel...

This systematic review explores the frequency of complications associated with nasogastric tube (NGT) placement in patients with acute stroke. The unique condition of the dysphasic, immobile, confused immunosuppressed patient who has had an acute stroke hampers any consistent inference from other neurological or nonneurological condition in which NGT placement is used. Twelve studies including 921 patients fed by NGT in the acute phase (first 4 weeks) were included in the analysis. The overall quality of the included studies was good...

When a patient presents with stroke-type symptoms, the correct diagnosis is imperative to determine appropriate treatment. Cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA), a buildup of amyloid proteins on the brain artery walls, is a cause of intracerebral hemorrhage. Improved diagnostic criteria and enhanced neuroimaging have resulted in earlier detection of CAA, which will hopefully lead to better outcomes for these patients. More research is being conducted, and neuroscience nurses need to stay informed about this condition to be able to appropriately care for and educate their patients who are diagnosed with CAA...

BACKGROUND: Uncertainty is a chronic and pervasive source of psychological distress for patients and plays an important role in the rehabilitation of stroke survivors. Little is known about the level and correlates of uncertainty among patients in the acute phase of stroke. PURPOSE: The purposes of this study were to describe the uncertainty of patients in the acute phase of stroke and to explore characteristics of patients associated with that uncertainty. METHODS: A cross-sectional descriptive and correlational study was conducted with a convenience sample of 451 consecutive hospitalized acute stroke patients recruited from the neurology department of 2 general hospitals of China...
