OBJECTIVE: To determine non-ventilator-associated hospital-acquired pneumonia (NV-HAP) incidence, assess negative impacts on patient outcomes and cost, and identify missed preventive nursing care opportunities. BACKGROUND: NV-HAP is inadequately studied and underreported. Missed nursing care opportunities, particularly oral care, may aid NV-HAP prevention. METHODS: This descriptive, observational, retrospective chart review identified adult NV-HAP cases and associated demographic and hospital care data...

Timely and adequate nutrition improves health outcomes for the critically ill patient. Despite clinical guidelines recommending early oral nutrition, survivors of critical illness experience significant nutritional deficits. This cohort study evaluates the oral nutrition intake in intensive care unit (ICU) patients who have experienced recent critical illness. The oral nutrition intake of a convenience sample of ICU patients post-critical illness was observed during a 1-month period. Data pertaining to both the amount of oral nutrition intake and factors impacting optimal oral nutrition intake were collected and analysed...

OBJECTIVES: To identify the effects of a mother-nurse partnership programme based on the core components of information sharing, negotiation and participation in care. Specifically, we examined the programme's effects on parental satisfaction, parental self-efficacy, perceived partnership and anxiety, as well as infants' time to reach full oral feeding and length of postoperative hospital stay, following cardiac surgery on infants at a paediatric intensive care unit with a restrictive visiting policy...

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to compare hospital quality outcomes in patients over the age of 60 undergoing fixation of hip fracture based on their anticoagulation status. Materials and Methods: Patients aged 60 and older with isolated hip fracture injuries treated operatively at 1 academic medical center between October 2014 and September 2016 were analyzed. Patients on the following medications were included in the anticoagulation cohort: warfarin, clopidogrel, aspirin 325 mg, rivaroxaban, apixaban, dabigatran, and dipyridamole/aspirin...

OBJECTIVES: Midodrine is an oral alpha-agonist approved for orthostatic hypotension. The use of midodrine as a vasopressor sparing agent has steadily increased in the ICU despite limited evidence for its safety in that setting. We describe the trends in use and reported side effects and complications of midodrine in multidisciplinary ICUs of a tertiary care institution. DESIGN: Single-center retrospective case series. SETTING: Medical and surgical ICU patients from January 2011 to October 2016 at Mayo Clinic, Rochester...

Patients with Addison's disease are at greater risk of having reduced bone mineral density and hip fractures and are thus more likely to receive a bisphosphonate than their peers. Potent intravenous bisphosphonates could provoke an acute phase reaction. An 80-year-old female with Addison's disease received her first infusion of zoledronic acid for osteoporosis at our outpatient clinic around noon. Despite doubling her usual afternoon hydrocortisone dose, she became feverish, nauseous, extremely weak, and hypotensive over the night...

BACKGROUND: Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the leading cause of death among trauma patients. Patients under antithrombotic therapy (ATT) carry an increased risk for intracranial haematoma (ICH) formation. There is a paucity of data about the role of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) among TBI patients. METHODS: In this retrospective study, we investigated all TBI patients ≥60-years-old who were admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) from January 2014 until May 2017...

BACKGROUND: Although evidence-based practices are known to improve the quality of care, making it cost-efficient and improving clinical results, barriers to transferring research into clinical practice have hindered this process. AIMS: To evaluate critical care nurses' knowledge of, adherence to, and barriers toward institution-specific ventilator bundle. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In 2015, we conducted an institution-specific, cross-sectional study in a 26-bed adult mixed medical-surgical intensive care unit (ICU) in Finland using quantitative survey of knowledge and self-reported adherence with qualitative gathering of barrier data...

BACKGROUND: While minimally invasive procedures are being used in cardiac surgery, experience with minimally invasive proximal aortic surgery has been limited to certain centers. METHODS: Between January 2010 and March 2015, 54 patients with an upper "J" hemi-sternotomy and 75 patients with a conventional sternotomy due to proximal aortic pathology were included in this study. Forty-five patients from the "J" hemi-sternotomy group were matched with 45 patients from the conventional sternotomy group with respect to age, sex, ejection fraction, diabetes, hypertension, smoking history and operative type...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Nutritional therapy is an integral part of care in all phases of liver transplantation (LTx). However, there are several factors that make it a challenge to manage malnutrition in these patients including, but not limited to, loss of appetite, dietary restrictions and dietary habits. Dietary habits are guided by personal choice, social, cultural and regional background with diversity ranging from veganism to vegetarianism with the latter predominant in Indian population...

OBJECTIVE: The impact of early resumption of oral intake after cardiac surgery on hemodynamics has not been characterized. The authors examined the effects of early oral intake on the oxygen supply-demand relationship in patients undergoing on-pump cardiac surgery in an early recovery after surgery program.

Nurses have the most important role among health care workers (HCWs) in each hospital (Aiken et al., 2008) [1]. Nurses education can lead to the improvement of nursing care If is implemented and designed based on nurses' needs and proper principles (Aiken et al., 2008) [1]. Nowadays, increased quality of the treatment and increase the chances of survival of patients with acute respiratory failure are very important (Teixeira et al., 2013) [2]. Nursing care plan in ICU patients is one of the important elements in nursing care, and one of the main strategies is promotion of education level...

BACKGROUND: Whether postoperative care in the intensive care unit (ICU) is a necessity for patients undergoing head and neck free flap reconstruction remains debatable. In August 2012, our institute initiated a policy to care for these patients in the ICU, opposed to the previous policy of care in the ward. Thus, we used this opportunity to compare outcomes between these 2 care approaches. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with oral cancer who underwent cancer ablation and immediate anterolateral thigh flap reconstruction from August 2010 to July 2014 were included in this retrospective study...

BACKGROUND: Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a leading cause of viral infections in immunocompromised hosts and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. In January 2015, our institution switched from aerosolized to oral ribavirin (RBV) for primary treatment of RSV infection among high-risk immunocompromised adult patients. The objective of the study was to evaluate the clinical and economic outcomes associated with this switch. METHODS: Retrospective cohort analysis of adult patients diagnosed with RSV infection and treated with RBV between January 1, 2013, and May 31, 2016...

BACKGROUND: The study was performed to analyze the results of open-heart surgery and bleeding complications after administration of novel oral anticoagulants (NOAC). METHODS: We investigated 81 consecutive patients (median age 74 years, interquartile range [IQR]: 68 to 78) who underwent open-heart operations at our institution between July 2014 and June 2016. All patients presented for surgery while on NOAC therapy: 37 received rivaroxaban (45.7%), 35 apixaban (43...
