BACKGROUND: Delirium is a serious complication in patients in intensive care units. Previous surveys on delirium management in daily practice showed low adherence to published guidelines. AIM: To evaluate delirium management in nurses and physicians working in intensive care units in German-speaking countries and to identify related differences between nurses and physicians. DESIGN: The study used an open online survey with multiple-choice responses...

The involvement of patients and the public in the development, implementation and evaluation of health care services and research is recognized to have tangible benefits in relation to effectiveness and credibility. However, despite >96% of children and young people surviving critical illness or injury, there is a paucity of published reports demonstrating their contribution to informing the priorities for aftercare services and outcomes research. We aimed to identify the service and research priorities for Paediatric Intensive Care Unit survivors with children and young people, their families and other stakeholders...

#3
Roseanne Luther, Anne McLeod
BACKGROUND: Delirium is highly prevalent within critical care and is linked to adverse clinical outcomes, increased mortality and impaired quality of life. Development of delirium is thought to be caused by multiple risk factors, including disruption of the circadian rhythm. Chronotherapeutic interventions, such as light therapy, music and use of eye shades, have been suggested as an option to improve circadian rhythm within intensive care units. AIM: This review aims to answer the question: Can chronotherapy reduce the prevalence of delirium in adult patients in critical care? DESIGN: This study is a systematic review of quantitative studies...

#4
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...

#7
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...

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...
