OBJECTIVE: To establish clinical predictors of risk for decreased cardiac tissue perfusion (DCTP) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). METHODS: Data on demographic, anthropometric, clinical, and procedural variables were collected as explanatory from a database of 1,542 adult patients undergoing PCI. A diagnosis of periprocedural myocardial infarction was used to confirm DCTP. A multivariate logistic regression determined the predictors of DCTP. RESULTS: The independent predictors of risk for DCTP were age (OR = 1...

PURPOSE: Much of our practice as nurses is predicated on the development of a trusting relationship between patient and nurse. Through this, the nurse and patient can identify the issues which are challenging health, the desired outcomes of care and the interventions that will be enacted, by both parties, in order to achieve these outcomes. Often, though, both nurses and patients find it difficult to put aside the relative roles that they play in health care and the level of engagement that is possible may not be achieved...

PROBLEM: Nurses are uniquely positioned to implement behavior change interventions. Yet, nursing interventions have traditionally resulted from nurses problem-solving rather than allowing the patient to self-generate possible solutions for attaining specific health outcomes. PURPOSE: The purpose of this review is to clarify the meaning of possible solutions in behavior change interventions. METHODS: Walker and Avant's method on concept analysis serves as the framework for examination of the possible solutions...

PURPOSE: This article aims to define the concept of maintenance of continuity in older adulthood (MCOA) and assist nurses to better understand the concept of MCOA. METHODS: The method by Walker and Avant was used for this concept analysis. FINDINGS: In the literature, MCOA is defined as a psychosocial adaptation strategy by searching for preference and familiarity, making a sense of connection, and creating coherence. CONCLUSIONS: MCOA has potential to improve psychosocial adjustment to difficult life transitions as a coping mechanism...

PURPOSE: To identify the frequency of the nursing diagnoses, ineffective breathing pattern, impaired gas exchange and impaired spontaneous ventilation in newborns; and, to analyze the accuracy of diagnostic indicators identified for each of these diagnoses. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study conducted with a nonprobability sample of 92 infants. Data collected were represented by demographic and clinical variables, clinical indicators of the three respiratory nursing diagnoses from NANDA International, and were analyzed according to frequency and agreement between pairs of expert nurses (Kappa)...

PURPOSE: To select outcomes from the Nursing Outcomes Classification (NOC) to evaluate impaired tissue integrity in patients undergoing orthopedic surgeries, and develop conceptual and operational definitions for their indicators. METHODS: A consensus study involving 10 nurses from clinical practice. A 100% consensus was established in the outcomes selection. FINDINGS: Wound Healing: Primary intention (1102) with two indicators: (110214) Scar formation, and (110201) Skin approximation were selected...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this article is to describe the developmental processes for the creation of the new diagnosis risk for complicated immigration transition for the NANDA-I. METHODS: The study followed the recommended steps of developmental processes for NANDA-I. The identification of risk factors,which cause those who have migrated to feel vulnerable, is the result of two different research studies aimed at identifying nursing diagnosis related to the immigration process...

PURPOSE: To establish prognostic indicators of survival for impaired gas exchange (IGE) (00030). METHODS: Secondary analysis of data from an open prospective cohort developed with a group of 136 children with acute respiratory infection (ARI). FINDINGS: On Day 1, IGE (00030) was present in 42.6% of the sample. New cases arose until the last day of evaluation. With regards to defining characteristics, only hypoxemia and abnormal skin color were associated with a higher risk of developing diagnosis...

PURPOSE: To estimate the use of the Nursing Outcomes Classification (NOC) for falls and fall prevention. METHODS: This cross-sectional, descriptive study enrolled 196 registered nurses in South Korea. FINDINGS: Outcome assessments for falls and fall prevention were performed for 30-50% of hospitalized patients. The NOC outcomes related to falls and fall prevention were used more in surgical units than medical units. CONCLUSIONS: The performance rates of the outcomes related to falls and fall prevention were not high in hospitalized patients...

PURPOSE: To estimate the prevalence of Grieving, risk for Complicated Grieving, and Complicated Grieving in the primary care setting. METHODS: Retrospective epidemiological study, analyzing data from electronic health records (EHR). FINDINGS: A total of 84% of the 9,063 records had diagnostic labels without defining characteristics, related factors, or risk factors. A larger frequency of complicated grieving was found in deceased mourners...

PURPOSE: To evaluate if nursing diagnoses, interventions, and outcomes, as recorded by nurses in Italian hospitals, were semantically equivalent to the NANDA-I, NIC, and NOC (NNN) terminology. METHODS: A cross-mapping study using a multicenter design. Terms indicating nursing diagnoses, interventions, and outcomes were collected using the D-Catch instrument. Cross-mapping of these terms with NNN terminology was performed. FINDINGS: A sample of 137 nursing documentations was included...

PURPOSE: To examine factors associated with frailty among the young-old elderly (YOE) and old-old elderly (OOE). METHODS: This longitudinal study with a 3-year follow-up included 486 participants who received home care services. FINDINGS: Precipitous weight loss and depression in the YOE and worsening of complex mobility and depression in the OOE were associated with worsened frailty over the 3-year period. CONCLUSIONS: To prevent frailty, we suggest weight-loss prevention programs for the YOE, lower-limb exercise programs for the OOE, and depression management programs for both groups...

PURPOSE: To critically evaluate 2014 American Academy of Nursing (AAN) call-to-action plan for generating interoperable nursing data. DATA SOURCES: Healthcare literature. DATA SYNTHESIS: AAN's plan will not generate the nursing data needed to participate in big data science initiatives in the short term because Logical Observation Identifiers Names and Codes and Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine - Clinical Terms are not yet ripe for generating interoperable data...

PURPOSE: The purpose of our study was to clarify any difficulties or problems that exist in Japanese healthcare sites regarding the selection of death anxiety as a nursing diagnosis. METHODS: This study was a qualitative, inductive research design. The semistructured interviews were conducted on the participants who were nurses and had 3 or more years of clinical experience in Japan. RESULTS: Results showed four categories: "The Japanese have a culture of avoiding death," "It is extremely difficult to match diagnostic indicators and related factors with specific patient cases," "Other diagnoses exist that are effective and enable proactive intervention," and "The definition of death anxiety and the meaning of its diagnostic indicators are unintelligible...

PURPOSE: This study explored how well the Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC) covers adult inpatient psychiatric care. METHODS: By systematic analyses and a mapping approach, documented nursing interventions were assessed on concurrencies with the NIC. FINDINGS: From 2,153 intervention descriptions in nursing notes, 1,924 were recognizable as NIC interventions, and 229 did not match the NIC. 89.4% of all identified descriptions of interventions were recognizable as NIC interventions on the level of definition...

FINDINGS: Four themes emerged: (1) therapeutic communication; (2) nurse well-being; (3) dimensions of presence; and (4) intention to improve client outcomes. CONCLUSIONS: Presence was described as a multidimensional intervention that required therapeutic communication and nurse well-being with the intention of improving client outcomes...
