BACKGROUND: Although studies demonstrate techniques to limit hypoglycaemia in critically ill patients, there are limited data supporting methods to improve management of existing hypoglycaemia. OBJECTIVE: Assess the impact and sustainability of a computerised, three tiered, nurse driven protocol for hypoglycaemia treatment. DESIGN: Retrospective pre and post protocol study. SETTING: Neurosciences and surgical intensive care units at a tertiary academic medical centre...

OBJECTIVE: To determine which interventions within the Nursing Interventions Classification are most often applied in intensive care units and to validate the time required for each. METHODOLOGY: A three-stage e-Delphi was conducted; 21 panelists were recruited, seven manager nurses and 14 clinical nurses with higher degrees and more than five years experience in intensive care nursing. The first round explored the most common interventions applied. Additionally, panelists were asked to propose others...

Mechanically ventilated patients can be at risk for functional decline (Cameron et al., 2015). Early mobilisation of mechanically ventilated patients can improve outcomes after critical illness to prevent this decline. Although registered nurses understand the importance of early mobilisation there are nurses who are unwilling to mobilise patients. AIM: The aim of this study is to examine whether nurses' attitudes and beliefs are barriers for early mobilisation and evaluate whether an education intervention can improve early mobilisation...

Alexandre Herbland, Michel Goldberg, Nathalie Garric, Olivier Lesieur
INTRODUCTION: Patients' perception of an intensive care unit stay can lead to a better understanding of the expectations and needs of patients hospitalised in intensive care so that care for critically ill patients can be adapted and improved. Thank you letters are sources of original information which come directly and spontaneously from patients. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to analyse the thank you letters from patients who required intensive care treatment and to identify messages that could be intended for the intensive care unit team...

BACKGROUND: In adult Intensive Care Units, the complexity of patient treatment requirements make the use of central venous lines essential. Despite the potential benefits central venous lines can have for patients, there is a high risk of bloodstream infection associated with these catheters. AIM: Identify and critique the best available evidence regarding interventions to prevent central venous line associated bloodstream infections in adult intensive care unit patients other than anti-microbial catheters...

Karina Terp, Annica Sjöström-Strand
BACKGROUND: For parents, having a child admitted to a paediatric intensive care unit (PICU) is a very stressful experience filled with anxiety. Parents are often scared and traumatised. This stress can lead to PTSD. AIM: The aim was to describe parents' experiences and the effect on the family two years after their child was admitted to a paediatric intensive care unit. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Ten parents were interviewed according to a semi-structured interview guide...

Salizar Mohamed Ludin
BACKGROUND: A critical thinker may not necessarily be a good decision-maker, but critical care nurses are expected to utilise outstanding critical thinking skills in making complex clinical judgements. Studies have shown that critical care nurses' decisions focus mainly on doing rather than reflecting. To date, the link between critical care nurses' critical thinking and decision-making has not been examined closely in Malaysia. AIM: To understand whether critical care nurses' critical thinking disposition affects their clinical decision-making skills...

BACKGROUND: Whilst research demonstrates the benefits of nasal high flow oxygen in the intensive care setting, limited literature exists on its benefits in ward patients. OBJECTIVES: This study evaluated the use of nasal high flow oxygen in adult ward patients with respiratory failure or at risk of respiratory deterioration. Primary outcome was an improvement in pulmonary function as indicated by decreases in respiratory and heart rates and an increase in arterial oxygen saturation via pulse oximetry...

REVIEW
Martin Christensen, Judy Craft
Intra-abdominal hypertension can be classified as either primary or secondary. Primary intra-abdominal hypertension is often associated through trauma or diseases of the abdominopelvic region such as pancreatitis or abdominal surgery, while secondary intra-abdominal hypertension is the result of extra-abdominal causes such as sepsis or burns. The critically ill patient offers some challenges in monitoring in particular secondaryintra-abdominal hypertension because of the effects of fluid resuscitation, the use of inotropes and positive pressure ventilation...

THE AIM OF THE STUDY: The aim of this study was to explore the experiences of intensive care nurses performing post mortem care on patients who had died in an intensive care unit at a private hospital in Cape Town. The study further sets out to identify educational needs and to offer recommendations that may address these needs for this sample of nurses. METHODOLOGY AND SETTING: A qualitative research design using a descriptive method was used to explore the experiences of a purposive heterogeneous sample of six nurses who were working in an intensive care unit in a private hospital in Cape Town...

INTRODUCTION: It has been known for centuries that environment in healthcare has an impact, but despite this, environment has been overshadowed by technological and medical progress, especially in intensive care. Evidence-based design is a concept concerning integrating knowledge from various research disciplines and its application to healing environments. OBJECTIVE: The aim was to explore the experiences of nursing staff of working in an evidence-based designed ICU patient room...

REVIEW
E Lamond, S Murray, C E Gibson
BACKGROUND: Delirium is described as 'acute brain failure' and constitutes a medical emergency which presents a hazard for people cared for in intensive care units. The Scottish intensive care society audit group recommend that all people cared for in intensive care units be screened for signs of delirium so that treatment and management of complications can be implemented at an early stage. CLINICAL IMPLICATION: There is inconsistent evidence about when and how the assessment of delirium is carried out by nursing staff in the intensive care setting...

INTRODUCTION: Whilst research demonstrates the benefits of critical care outreach, limited research describes staffs' perspective of these teams. OBJECTIVE: This study examined ward nurses' and doctors' perceptions of the service provided by a nurse-led 24hours a day, seven days a week Patient at Risk team. DESIGN: Using an exploratory survey research design and a previously used instrument, data were collected between January and March (2016)...

BACKGROUND: Uncertainty exists whether a therapeutic early mobility position will affect the outcome of a critically ill patient. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the feasibility of an existing protocol to identify patients who would tolerate this position. RESEARCH METHODOLOGY/DESIGN: A non-randomized experimental pilot trail was performed. Twice weekly, all patients nursed in surgical and respiratory units were screened with the protocol. OUTCOME MEASURES: Haemodynamic parameters, mean arterial pressure and central venous oxygen saturation of included patients were tested in the baseline position followed by the testing position at 0, 3 and 10minutes...

OBJECTIVE: To explore nurse manager experiences of working in leadership constellations where more than two managers share leadership, and to compare this multilateral sharing form to what is known about experiences of working in joint leadership in pairs. DESIGN AND SETTING: A qualitative design based on semi-structured interviews with nurse managers in two multilaterally shared leadership constellations at two intensive care units at an emergency hospital in Sweden...
