The ideal time frame for frequency of resuscitation skills training has yet to be determined. Results obtained from this performance improvement project using hands-on practice sessions suggest that 6 months may be an adequate time frame for retention of resuscitation skills. Professional development educators may want to consider 6-month retraining intervals for low-volume/high-risk skills such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation to optimize nurses' proficiency in these life-saving competencies.

M H van der Vaart
In Germany there are approximately 1.6 million people with dementia. A quarter of them live in a care home, often alongside residents who have a physical condition. The quality of nursing for physical conditions is good; although specialised dementia care is less developed, this lag is slowly being addressed. Medical care in German care homes is delivered by GPs. Preservation of life is the norm. Due to the lack of both advance care planning and a non-resuscitation policy, many care home residents with dementia undergo life-extending measures...

Families ('family' will be used in this article to refer to anyone the patient considers significant, whether they are an actual family member or not) of patients who are critically ill have heightened communication needs. Nurses are an important source of information, particularly about day-to-day patient events and progress. Intensive care unit (ICU) nurses are valued by families because they provide clear, jargon-free information about the patient and their condition. However, they have sometimes been criticised for focusing on short-term issues while avoiding potentially difficult conversations about long-term outcomes and prognosis...

BACKGROUND: Sleeping Beauties (SBs) are publications that are scarcely cited in the years immediately following publication but then suddenly become highly cited later. Such publications have unique citation patterns and can reveal important developments in the field in which they appear. OBJECTIVES: No holistic analysis of nursing SBs has been done yet. The aim of this study was to identify and analyze the SB phenomenon in the nursing research literature. METHOD: The corpus for the nursing SB identification was harvested from the Web of Science Core Collection (Thomas Reuters) for the period 1934-2015...

Fluid administration is one of the most universal interventions in the intensive care unit; however, there remains a lack of optimal fluid choice in clinical practice. With increasing evidence suggesting that the choice and dose of fluid may influence patient outcomes, it is important to have an understanding of the differences between the various fluid products and these potential effects in order for nurses to navigate the critically ill patient. This article reviews properties, adverse effects, and monitoring of commonly used colloid and crystalloid fluids, providing information that may aid in fluid selection in the intensive care unit...

BACKGROUND: During pediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), vasoactive drug preparation for continuous infusions is complex and time-consuming. The need for individual specific weight-based drug dose calculation and preparation places children at higher risk than adults for medication errors. Following an evidence-based and ergonomic driven approach, we developed a mobile device app called Pediatric Accurate Medication in Emergency Situations (PedAMINES), intended to guide caregivers step-by-step from preparation to delivery of drugs requiring continuous infusion...

OBJECTIVE: Numerous disasters confirm the need for critical event training in healthcare professions. However, no single discipline works in isolation and interprofessional learning is recognized as a necessary component. An interprofessional faculty group designed a learning curriculum crossing professional schools. DESIGN: Faculty members from four healthcare schools within the university (nursing, pharmacy, allied health, and medicine) developed an interdisciplinary course merging both published cross-cutting competencies for critical event response and interprofessional education competencies...

Caroline Drewe
This article, discussing family-witnessed resuscitation, is the first in a series providing nurses with information about essential aspects of critical care. Family-witnessed resuscitation is not common practice in healthcare settings, despite its well-documented benefits. Lack of implementation arises because of fear and anxiety among healthcare practitioners about the potential negative consequences for the patient, the family and themselves. However, research has suggested that addressing these concerns could positively affect practice and increase the number of cases of family-witnessed resuscitation...

Janise B Phillips, Phillip L Mohorn, Rebecca E Bookstaver, Tanya O Ezekiel, Christopher M Watson
Trauma-induced coagulopathy is a primary factor in many trauma-related fatalities. Management hinges upon rapid diagnosis of coagulation abnormalities and immediate administration of appropriate hemostatic agents. Use of crystalloids and packed red blood cells has traditionally been the core of trauma resuscitation, but current massive transfusion protocols include combination therapy with fresh frozen plasma and predefined ratios of platelets to packed red blood cells, limiting crystalloid administration. Hemostatic agents such as tranexamic acid, prothrombin complex concentrate, fibrinogen concentrate, and, in cases of refractory bleeding, recombinant activated factor VIIa may also be warranted...

BACKGROUND: As the global under-five mortality rate declines, an increasing percentage is attributable to early neonatal mortality. A quarter of early neonatal deaths are due to perinatal asphyxia. However, neonatal resuscitation (NR) simulation training in low-resource settings, where the majority of neonatal deaths occur, has achieved variable success. In Bihar, India, the poorest region in South Asia, there is tremendous need for a new approach to reducing neonatal morality. METHODS: This analysis aims to assess the impact of a novel in-situ simulation training program, developed by PRONTO International and implemented in collaboration with CARE India, on NR skills of nurses in Bihar...

The Life Support Course for Nurses (LSCN) equips nurses with the resuscitation skills to be first responders in in-hospital cardiac arrests. Seventeen years after the initiation of the LSCN, a confidential cross-sectional Qualtrics™ survey was conducted in May 2016 on LSCN graduands to assess the following: confidence in nurse-initiated resuscitation post-LSCN; defibrillation experience and outcomes; and perceived barriers and usefulness of the LSCN. The majority of respondents reported that the course was useful and enhanced their confidence in resuscitation...

Introduction: Presence of family and patients' relatives throughout resuscitation procedure is one of the most challenging concerns. Methods: In an interventional (quasi-experimental) study that was conducted during a 6 months period, the patients' relatives were randomly divided into two groups of intervention (the relatives who were eager to be present throughout the resuscitation procedure- under the family protection protocol, all of the procedure steps were explained to the relatives by an expert nurse who was not involved in the resuscitation procedure and control group (those who were not invited routinely to be present throughout the resuscitation procedure...
