Withdrawal assessment in critically ill children is complicated by the reliance on non-specific behaviours and compounded when the child's typical behaviours are unknown. The existing approach to withdrawal assessment assumes that nurses elicit the parents' view of the child's behaviours. OBJECTIVE AND RESEARCH METHODOLOGY: This qualitative study explored parents' perspectives of their child's withdrawal and preferences for involvement and participation in withdrawal assessment. Parents of eleven children were interviewed after their child had completed sedation weaning during recovery from critical illness...

BACKGROUND: It is a common practice that new graduate Registered Nurses are hired into adult intensive care units as initial entry into practise. There exists a practice readiness gap between nursing curricula and actual clinical practise expectations at adult intensive care settings; this has led to negative consequences and subsequent nurse turnover, a concern nationwide. Nonetheless, some new graduate nurses survived their initial transition and continue to practise in adult settings...

BACKGROUND: Implementation of evidence-based bundles in intensive care units is integral to improving quality of care and patient outcomes. However, it increases the burden of data collection and analysis required for performance monitoring and feedback of an inter-disciplinary care team. Health information technology including electronic health records and data analytic tools could automate this process and provide real-time feedback to the team. AIM: This integrative literature review aimed to examine the extent to which technology-enabled performance monitoring and feedback contributed to improving quality of care and patient outcomes when implementing evidence-based bundles...

OBJECTIVES: To review current methods for informing nurse workforce decisions in critical care. Many clinical outcomes are worse if staffing is inadequate. Workforce planning is usually according to guidelines developed from the opinions of expert groups. Objective systems for planning and distributing staff have been developed but their value is unclear. DESIGN: A rapid review methodology was employed. REVIEW METHODS: The search included research studies, guidelines and surveys within and outside United Kingdom since 1995...

INTRODUCTION: Veno-Venous Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (VV-ECMO) is an advanced respiratory care therapy allowing replacement of pulmonary gas exchange. Despite VV-ECMO support, some patients may remain hypoxaemic. A possible therapeutic procedure for these patients is the application of prone positioning. OBJECTIVE: The primary aim of the present study was to investigate modification of the PaO2 /FiO2 ratio, in VV-ECMO patients with refractory hypoxaemia...
