#1
Zeinab M Hassan, Moayad A Wahsheh
BACKGROUND: Ventilator-associated pneumonia is the most prevalent infection in Intensive Care Units, with the highest mortality rate; crude mortality rates may be as high as 20-75%. Many practices such as prevention measures (e.g. hand washing, wearing gloves, suctioning, elevated head of bed between 30° and 45°) have demonstrated an effect of reducing the incidence of this infection. AIMS: To identify the level of nurses' knowledge of ventilator-associated pneumonia and prevention measures before an educational programme, identify the level of nurses' knowledge on ventilator-associated pneumonia and prevention post an educational programme and identify the reasons for not applying ventilator-associated pneumonia prevention measures among nurses in Jordan...

BACKGROUND: Family members of intensive care unit patients develop anxiety, depression and/or symptoms suggestive of risk for post-traumatic stress. Nurse-led support groups have been recommended and used in a variety of settings as a mechanism to help meet family needs and overcome challenges. These groups have been reported to increase the members' understanding of complex medical issues involved in their situations and to be helpful in identifying practical coping mechanisms. AIM: To investigate the experiences of family members participating in a nurse-social worker led support group in the intensive care unit...

BACKGROUND: Quality of care is a major focus in the intensive care unit (ICU). AIM: To describe a nurse-initiated quality improvement (QI) project that improved the care of critically ill patients in a New Zealand tertiary ICU. DESIGN: A framework for QI was developed and implemented as part of a practice change initiative. METHODS: Audit data were collected, analysed and reported across seven nurse-influenced patient care standards...

Jody Ede, Andrea Dale
BACKGROUND: A significant problem during continuous renal replacement therapy is premature circuit failure, affecting efficacy and molecular clearance. Techniques to improve circuit failure are anticoagulation, access site and modality. A modality change was introduced, moving from continuous veno-venous haemofiltration to continuous veno-venous haemodiafiltration as a result of existing issues with failing circuit times and failure rates. AIM: The aim of this service evaluation was to ascertain if the use of continuous veno-venous haemodiafiltration compared to continuous veno-venous haemofiltration had affected failed circuit survival times and rates...

BACKGROUND: Adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a type of acute diffuse lung injury characterized by severe inflammation, increased pulmonary vascular permeability and a loss of aerated lung tissue. The effects of high fraction of inspired oxygen (FiO2 ) include oxygen toxicity manifested by damage to the lung parenchyma in the acute phase of lung injury. There is still a high mortality rate among this group of patients, so clinically sensitive evidence-based interventions are paramount to maximize survival chances during critical care...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Increased nurse-physician collaboration is a factor in improved patient outcomes. Limited autonomy of nurses has been proposed as a barrier to collaboration. This study aims to explore nurse-physician collaboration and potential associations with nurses' autonomy and pertinent nurses' characteristics in adult intensive care units (ICUs) in Cyprus. DESIGN AND METHODS: Descriptive correlational study with sampling of the entire adult ICU nurses' population in Cyprus (five ICUs in four public hospitals, n = 163, response rate 88·58%)...

Monica Kvande, Charlotte Delmar, Else Lykkeslet, Sissel Lisa Storli
AIM: To explore the phenomenon of assessing changes in patients' conditions in intensive care units from the perspectives of experienced intensive care nurses. BACKGROUND: Providing safe care for patients in intensive care units requires an awareness and perception of the signs that indicate changes in a patient's condition. Nurses in intensive care units play an essential role in preventing the deterioration of a patient's condition and in improving patient outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Diaries written for patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) are offered in many European countries. In Austria, ICU diaries have been relatively unknown, but since 2012, they have started to emerge. AIM: The aim of this study was to explore the extent and application of ICU diaries in Austria in 2015. METHOD: The study had a prospective multiple methods design of survey and interviews. All ICUs in Austria were surveyed in 2015 to identify which ICUs used diaries...

BACKGROUND: The last decade has seen an increase in the number of centres able to provide venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VV-ECMO) internationally across different health care systems. To support this growth, a variety of staffing arrangements have been adopted depending on local need and availability of resources, both in terms of manpower and finances to safely meet the complex needs of the patient and circuit management. AIM: The aim of the survey was to describe current staffing arrangements of care provision for adult patients on VV-ECMO, with a focus on understanding the professional roles and responsibilities of staff managing the circuit in order to inform further discussion around different approaches to staffing...

BACKGROUND: Delirium in the intensive care unit (ICU) has received more attention in the past decade. Early detection, prevention and treatment of delirium are important, and the most commonly used tool for delirium assessment is the Confusion Assessment Method for the ICU (CAM-ICU). AIM: The aim of this study was to identify nurses' and physicians' perceived professional barriers to using the CAM-ICU in Danish ICUs. METHODS: This study uses a qualitative explorative multicentre design using focus groups and a semi-structured interview guide...

BACKGROUND: International and national standards for ICUs have been developed to ensure patient safety and provide effective and efficient service in these units. However, global economic crises along with shortages in professional health care staff affect the ability of ICUs to meet and maintain these standards. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to ascertain whether the equipment and workforce in intensive care units (ICUs) in Turkish hospitals meet current ICU standards...
