#1
Natalia Sak-Dankosky, Paweł Andruszkiewicz, Paula R Sherwood, Tarja Kvist
BACKGROUND: In-hospital, family-witnessed cardiopulmonary resuscitation of adults has been found to help patients' family members deal with the short- and long-term emotional consequences of resuscitation. Because of its benefits, many national and international nursing and medical organizations officially recommend this practice. Research, however, shows that family-witnessed resuscitation is not widely implemented in clinical practice, and health care professionals generally do not favour this recommendation...

Tanya Mailhot, Sylvie Cossette, José Côté, Anne Bourbonnais, Marie-Claude Côté, Yoan Lamarche, André Denault
BACKGROUND: As many delirium manifestations (e.g., hallucinations or fears) are linked to patients' experiences and personality traits, it is suggested that interventions should be tailored to optimize its management. The inclusion of family members, as part of an intervention, has recently emerged as a solution to developing individualised patient care, but has never been assessed in post-cardiac surgery intensive care unit where almost half of patients will present with delirium. AIMS: To assess the feasibility, acceptability and preliminary efficacy of an nursing intervention involving family caregivers (FC) in delirium management following cardiac surgery...

REVIEW
Elizabeth Papathanassoglou, Nicos Middleton, Julie Benbenishty, Ged Williams, Maria-Dolores Christofi, Kathleen Hegadoren
BACKGROUND: Men and women appear to exhibit different susceptibilities to sepsis and possibly divergent outcomes. However, the effect of sex and gender in critical illness outcomes is still controversial and the underlying mechanisms appear to be complex. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to systematically review and synthesize evidence on the influence of sex on outcomes in critically ill adult patients with sepsis, as reported in published studies specifically including investigation of the effect of sex among their aims...

#4
Doris A Chatfield, Sue Lee, Jakki Cowley, Celia Kitzinger, Jenny Kitzinger, David K Menon
BACKGROUND: This research explores the current and potential future role of independent mental capacity advocates (IMCAs) in critical care. The Mental Capacity Act (MCA) of 2005 introduced IMCAs as advocates for patients without anyone to represent their best interests, but research suggests that this role is not well understood or implemented. No existing research explores the role of IMCAs in critical care or their potential use when families are judged 'appropriate to act' on the patient's behalf...

Shaoning Lv, Paul Ross, Kathleen Tori
BACKGROUND: Glycaemic control is recognized as one of the important aspects in managing critically ill patients. Both hyperglycaemia and hypoglycaemia independently increase the risk of patient mortality. Hence, the identification of optimal glycaemic control is of paramount importance in the management of critically ill patients. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of this literature review is to examine the current status of glycaemic control in critically ill adult patients...

Susanne Krotsetis, Kathy C Richards, Anja Behncke, Sascha Köpke
BACKGROUND: The assessment of sleep quality in critically ill patients is a relevant factor of high-quality care. Despite the fact that sleep disturbances and insufficient sleep management contain an increased risk of severe morbidity for these patients, a translated and applicable instrument to evaluate sleep is not available for German-speaking intensive care settings. AIM: This study aimed to translate the Richards Campbell Sleep Questionnaire (RCSQ), a simple and validated instrument eligible for measuring sleep quality in critically ill patients, and subsequently to evaluate the internal consistency of the German version of the RCSQ...

Melissa J Bloomer, Angelique B Clarke, Julia Morphet
BACKGROUND: Enteral nutrition is important in critically ill patients to improve patient outcomes, with nurses playing a pivotal role in the delivery and ongoing care of enteral nutrition. A significant deficit in nurses' knowledge and education relating to enteral nutrition has been identified, leading to iatrogenic malnutrition and potentially compromising patient care. Enteral nutrition appears to be prioritized lower than many other aspects of care. However, there is scant research to show how nurses prioritize enteral nutrition...

BACKGROUND: Given the high prevalence of eye disorders in intensive care units, evaluating critical care nurses' competence in providing standard eye care is a matter of utmost importance. However, to the best of our knowledge, there is no valid questionnaire for measuring nurses' competence to undertake eye care. AIMS: The aim of this study was to develop and evaluate the psychometric properties of a questionnaire on nurses' clinical competence in providing eye care to patients hospitalized in intensive care units...

BACKGROUND: Overseas recruitment has been vital to the contribution of staff growth in the National Health Service (NHS). In 2011, high nursing vacancy rates within critical care required that overseas nurses were recruited. The recruited nurses were placed in an Overseas Nurses Program (ONP), a course designed to assist overseas nurses in adapting to the NHS. AIM: To describe the experiences of nurses recruited from India who participated in an ONP. DESIGN: A qualitative, research approach was chosen to gather descriptions of the lived experiences of nurses from India transitioning to London, to work in critical care settings...

BACKGROUND: Inappropriate sedation assessment can jeopardize patient comfort and safety. Therefore, nurses' abilities in assessing and managing sedation are vital for effective care of mechanically ventilated patients. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: This study assessed nurses' sedation scoring and management abilities as primary outcomes following educational interventions. Nurses' perceived self-confidence and barriers to effective sedation management were assessed as secondary outcomes...
