BACKGROUND: Critical care patients with delirium are at an increased risk of functional decline and mortality long term. OBJECTIVE: To determine the relationship between delirium severity in the intensive care unit and mortality and acute health care utilization within 2 years after hospital discharge. METHODS: A secondary data analysis of the Pharmacological Management of Delirium and Deprescribe randomized controlled trials. Patients were assessed twice daily for delirium or coma using the Richmond Agitation-Sedation Scale and the Confusion Assessment Method for the Intensive Care Unit (CAM-ICU)...

BACKGROUND: Despite the growing use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) in intensive care units (ICUs), no standardized ECMO training pathways are available for ECMO-naive critical care nurses. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate a critical care nurse ECMO curriculum that may be reproducible across institutions. METHODS: An ECMO curriculum consisting of a basic safety course and an advanced user course was designed for critical care nurses. Courses incorporated didactic and simulation components, written knowledge examinations, and electronic modules...

BACKGROUND: Pressure injuries are an important problem in hospital care. Detecting the population at risk for pressure injuries is the first step in any preventive strategy. Available tools such as the Norton and Braden scales do not take into account all of the relevant risk factors. Data mining and machine learning techniques have the potential to overcome this limitation. OBJECTIVES: To build a model to detect pressure injury risk in intensive care unit patients and to put the model into production in a real environment...

BACKGROUND: Communication in the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) between families and the health care team affects the family experience, caregiver psychological morbidity, and patient outcomes. OBJECTIVE: To test the feasibility of studying and implementing a PICU communication intervention called PICU Supports, and to assess families' and health care teams' perceptions of the intervention. METHODS: This study involved patients requiring more than 24 hours of PICU care...

Renea L Beckstrand, Jasmine B Jenkins, Karlen E Luthy, Janelle L B Macintosh
BACKGROUND: Critical care nurses routinely care for dying patients. Research on obstacles in providing end-of-life care has been conducted for more than 20 years, but change in such obstacles over time has not been examined. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether the magnitude scores of obstacles and helpful behaviors regarding end-of-life care have changed over time. METHODS: In this cross-sectional survey study, questionnaires were sent to 2000 randomly selected members of the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses...

Catherine Ford, Donna McCormick, Janet Parkosewich, Katrien Derycke-Chapman, Judith Marshall, Jessica Mancarella, Anne Chepulis
BACKGROUND: Patients fast after cardiothoracic surgery because of concerns for nausea, vomiting, dysphagia, and aspiration pneumonia; fasting, however, causes thirst, a distressing symptom. To our knowledge, no studies exist to guide hydration practices in this population. OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of early oral hydration on adverse events and thirst in patients after cardiothoracic surgery. METHODS: This study applied a prospective 2-group design in which 149 patients from an 18-bed cardiothoracic intensive care unit were randomized to either usual care (a 6-hour fast) or early oral hydration after extubation...

#15
Orla M Smith, Kelly Metcalfe, Martine Puts, Ellen McDonald, Shivon Sue-Chee, Jan O Friedrich
BACKGROUND: Most intensive care patients require substitute decision makers (SDMs) to make decisions. The SDMs may prefer an active, shared, or passive decision-making role. Role incongruence is when preferred and actual roles differ. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the impact of decision-making role preferences and role incongruence on psychological distress symptoms in SDMs. METHODS: A multicenter, interviewer-administered survey was conducted among SDMs of critically ill adults...

In this presentation, I will share my unconventional journey, starting from my first job as a critical care staff nurse to my current role as tenure-track faculty at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where I hold a joint position with the Institute for Applied Life Sciences and the College of Nursing. Throughout this journey, I have had many opportunities to participate in interdisciplinary clinical outcomes research and medical product development as a staff nurse, clinical nurse specialist, and project lead from the clinical, industry, and academic perspectives...

Kyle S Richardson, Meredith MacKenzie Greenle
BACKGROUND: Compassion fatigue affects up to 40% of health care professionals who work in intensive care settings. Frequent exposure to the death of patients, particularly children, may put nurses at risk for compassion fatigue, but the relation between these is unclear among those working in pediatric intensive care units. OBJECTIVES: To examine the relationship between exposure to the death or near death of a pediatric patient and compassion fatigue, specifically the outcomes of compassion satisfaction, burnout, and secondary traumatic stress...
