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...

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...

Kathleen Jr Daly, Luigi Camporota, Nicholas A Barrett
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...

AIMS: The UK Department of Health (2012) recommends a ventilator care bundle in the form of a high impact intervention to reduce the incidence of ventilator-associated pneumonia. The aims of this project were to audit compliance with individual components of this care bundle in the UK. DESIGN: The first survey directly addressed compliance with each component of the recommended ventilator care bundle. The second survey was targeted towards the use of subglottic secretion drainage (SSD) and the logistics of implementing it...

BACKGROUND: Studies have shown that nurses have a crucial role in the recognition of delirium; however, they have insufficient knowledge regarding the issue. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study is to determine the knowledge level of cardiovascular surgery nurses regarding delirium. METHODS: A survey design was used. The population of the study consisted of 124 nurses employed at the cardiovascular surgery wards and intensive care units of universities as well as state and private hospitals located in two different cities in Turkey between May and June 2014...

Matthew Norridge, Alison E While
BACKGROUND: Unplanned extubations in PICU are used as a measure of quality in clinical governance strategies. While many factors, such as sedation or unit activity, impact negatively on unplanned extubations, high nurse-patient ratios reduce adverse patient events and improve patient safety. However, optimal nurse-patient ratios and the impact of the level of nursing expertise on the quality of care are unknown. AIM: The study aimed to examine the impact of PICU nursing expertise on the unplanned extubations of children...

Aysel Özsaban, Rengin Acaroglu
BACKGROUND: As delirium in intensive care unit (ICU) patients is a serious problem that can result in increased mortality and morbidity, routine delirium assessment of all ICU patients is recommended. The severity, duration and outcome of the syndrome are directly related to nurses' continuous assessment of patients for signs and symptoms of delirium. However, studies indicate that very few nurses monitor for delirium as a part of their daily practices. AIM: The aim of this study was to identify current practices and perceptions of intensive care nurses regarding delirium assessment and to examine the factors that affect these practices and perceptions...

BACKGROUND: Stress-induced hyperglycaemia (SHG) can be observed in as high as 75% of critically ill patients, which can induce severe complications or adverse events. However, conventional intensive insulin therapy (CIIT) tends to induce hypoglycaemia and glucose variability. AIMS: This study investigated the clinical effects of a blood glycaemic control optimization programme (BGCOP) in patients with stress hyperglycaemia post hepatobiliary or pancreatic surgery...
