Over the past 50 years, the Journal of Neuroscience Nursing (JNN) has grown from a neurosurgical focus to the broader neuroscience focus alongside the professional nursing organization that it supports. Stroke care in JNN focused on the surgical treatment and nursing care for cranial treatment of conditions such as cerebral aneurysm, carotid disease, arteriovenous malformation, and artery bypass procedures. As medical science has grown and new medications and treatment modalities have been successfully trialed, JNN has brought to its readership this information about recombinant tissue plasminogen activator, endovascular trials, and new assessment tools such as the National Institute of Health Stroke Scale...

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...

OBJECTIVE: Hourly neurological examinations are frequently performed in the neurointensive care unit (NICU) to quickly detect neurological deterioration. These examinations require the patient to be awakened hourly for days disrupting the sleep cycle and potentially causing neurological deterioration through sleep deprivation and the development of delirium. This pilot study's aim was to describe the prevalence of neurologic deterioration and delirium in patients receiving hourly neuro checks...

BACKGROUND: Nurse practitioners (NPs) are helping to bridge the gap not only in primary care but also in specialty practice. In an outpatient, neurosurgical spinal clinic in the midwest, patient volume exceeded provider availability, and to rectify this problem, a proposal for an NP triage system and an NP-led spinal clinic was presented. PURPOSE: The aim of this project was to use NPs to facilitate patient triage in an outpatient neurosurgical practice to expedite patients' access to care and ultimately improve patient satisfaction, outcomes, and healthcare expenditure...

BACKGROUND: The relationship between obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and stroke is well established, thus supporting the importance of secondary prevention via screening and treatment for acute ischemic stroke survivors. Educational pamphlets are commonly used for patient education; however, none currently available on OSA have evaluated. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of a brief educational intervention on patient knowledge and interest in OSA screening. METHODS: Adult acute ischemic stroke patients were enrolled into a nonrandomized, single-group, pretest and posttest study...

BACKGROUND: Despite the demonstrated benefits of exercise in multiple sclerosis (MS), this population shows low rates of physical activity. Understanding barriers to exercise in persons with MS is important. The current study examined the relationship between lifetime history of depression, current depressive symptoms, and aerobic endurance in persons with relapsing-remitting MS to determine whether depression might be one such barrier. METHODS: Thirty-one participants with relapsing-remitting MS self-reported current depressive symptoms and history of depression...

INTRODUCTION: Studies on the prevalence of sexual dysfunction (SD) in multiple sclerosis (MS) have shown that 40% to 80% of women and 50% to 90% of men have had sexual complaints. Sexual function is often disregarded during consultation with healthcare professionals, and SD is frequently underdiagnosed. The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of SD and its relationship to sociodemographic and disease-related factors, with regard to disability state, in a hospital cohort of MS patients, by using a semistructured interview...
