BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Symptoms in glioma patients are distinctly different from symptoms in patients with other types of cancer and have a high impact on quality of life. In this study, a stepwise approach of developing a glioma module for assessment of symptoms, based on a Dutch adapted and validated version of the Edmonton Symptom Assessment System, is described. METHODS: Three phases of instrument development were conducted: a systematic literature review and a focus group interview with experts were performed (phase I) to generate relevant symptoms and construct a preliminary module (phase II)...

Kivan Çevik, Emre Namik
BACKGROUND: Comatose patients are exposed to sensory deprivation in the intensive care units. Auditory stimulation of patients who are unconscious is a nonmedical procedure. This study examines the effect of organized voice, performed by a nurse, on the state of consciousness of comatose patients in intensive care units. METHOD: This randomized controlled trial study of 60 patients was conducted fitting between August 2017 and February 2018. For 10 days, patients received the voice of a male nurse twice a day in the morning and night shifts, recorded on MP3 and repeated at least 3 to 4 times...

Serial pupil examinations remain a mainstay of neurological assessments performed by neuroscience nurses. Integration of pupillometer technology has increased in recent years, because of its ability to address limitations of manual examinations and to evaluate trended data over time. Preliminary research has linked pupillometer values to intracranial pressure (ICP) values, but data on pupillary changes in the setting of increased ICP remain sparse. The purpose of this study was to determine trends in pupillometer values in the setting of increased ICP among critically ill patients with neurological injury...

BACKGROUND: Stroke is a significant health issue with devastating consequences among older adults in the United States. However, it can be prevented by improving stroke knowledge and managing risk factors. Many stroke education programs have been shown to be effective. Unfortunately, a minority of older adults, such as older Korean Americans, have not benefited from the programs because of language barriers. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to examine the feasibility and preliminary impact of a primary stroke prevention program on stroke knowledge, healthy eating, and physical activity behaviors among Korean Americans...

INTRODUCTION: Head-of-bed (HOB) elevation is the standard of care for patients with intracranial pressure monitoring at risk for intracranial hypertension. Measurement of cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) based on HOB elevation and arterial transducer position has not been adequately studied. METHODS: This is a planned secondary analysis of prospectively collected data in which paired, serial arterial blood pressure (ABP), intracranial pressure, and CPP measures were obtained once per day for 3 days, with measures leveled at the tragus (Tg) and the phlebostatic axis (PA)...

BACKGROUND: Research suggests that there is a delay in recognizing unique stroke symptoms in women by both healthcare professionals and the general population. The purpose of this review was to identify and summarize the most relevant literature regarding recognition and assessment of unique stroke symptoms in women. METHODS: Literature review using PubMed, CINAHL, ERIC, MEDLINE, PsycINFO, and Google Scholar was used to search literature describing unique stroke symptoms...

Delirium is an increasing concern with current combined annual costs for the United States and Europe of approximately $350 billion. Although standardized definitions and diagnostic criteria exist, more than 80% of delirium in the acute care setting is overlooked or misdiagnosed. Delays in identification result in increases in severity and mortality and a reduction in quality of life. Selecting an assessment tool is the first step toward improving recognition.

Da-In Park, Smi Choi-Kwon
BACKGROUND: Poststroke sleep disorders (PSSDs) are common manifestations that may lead to adverse outcomes that pose a negative impact on the daily lives of stroke survivors. However, PSSD is poorly understood in terms of etiology, assessment, treatment, and nursing management. The purpose of this executive summary is to provide an overview to broaden our understanding of PSSDs. METHOD: The electronic databases EMBASE, PubMed, CINAHL, Cochrane Library, and Google Scholar were searched to identify any available relevant studies...

International qualitative researchers confront many challenges while conducting studies among hidden populations. This article describes challenges experienced as a US-based researcher and native Indian woman conducting a focused ethnography among women with epilepsy in rural south India. The 5 challenges encountered during this research were (1) obtaining ethical approvals to conduct the study, (2) recruiting hidden participants, (3) being a halfie, (4) addressing a sensitive topic with a vulnerable population, and (5) managing researcher distress and intrapersonal conflicts...

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...
