BACKGROUND: Patients in intensive care units are generally more conscious and alert when they are on mechanical ventilation than in previous years because of the many potential benefits of being under less sedation. The endotracheal tube blocks the vocal cords when patients are on ventilation, thus making it impossible to speak. Many patients report that they struggle to make themselves understood. AIM: The aim of this study was to assess previous knowledge about interaction and communication between health care personnel and conscious and alert patients under mechanical ventilation in intensive care units...

Currently, an effective sleep assessment tool in Chinese is not available for intensive care settings. AIM: This study aimed to assess the reliability and validity of the Chinese version of the Richards-Campbell Sleep Questionnaire (RCSQ-C). It also aimed to evaluate patient-nurse reliability and agreement of the RCSQ-C in the intensive care unit (ICU)...

Daifallah Al-Thubaity, Susan Williamson, Ralph Leavey, Lyvonne N Tume
BACKGROUND: It is recognized that nurses' failure to recognize and respond promptly to deterioration in children's physiological status can result in increased morbidity and mortality. AIM: The aim of this study was to explore the ability of Saudi-educated, newly qualified nurses, working in paediatric wards, to recognize children's deterioration. METHODS: A pilot study was carried out to assess nurses' responses to three clinical vignettes (deteriorating child, improving child and ambiguous scenarios)...

Kazuya Omura, Atsushi Komine, Mari Yanagigawa, Naomi Chiba, Maiko Osada
BACKGROUND: Post-extubation dysphagia reportedly occurs in 3%-60% of patients and is independently associated with poor patient outcomes. AIM: The aim of this study was to investigate the frequency of post-extubation dysphagia, as diagnosed using our novel nurse-performed swallowing screening protocol, and to evaluate patient outcomes, including the frequency of discharge home, the length of the intensive care unit and hospital stays, the frequency of hospital-acquired pneumonia and death in the intensive care unit and hospital...
