The sudden surge in cases of novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has presented unprecedented challenges in the care of critically ill patients with the disease. A disease-focused checklist was developed to supplement and streamline the existing structure of rounds during a time of significant resource constraint. A total of 51 critical care consultants across multiple specialties at a tertiary academic medical center were surveyed regarding their preference for a structured checklist. Among the respondents, 82% were in favor of a disease-focused checklist...

Peer support interventions have been implemented internationally to ameliorate these issues. OBJECTIVE: To explore what patients believed to be the key mechanisms of effectiveness of peer support programs implemented during critical care recovery. METHODS: In a secondary analysis of an international qualitative data set, 66 telephone interviews with patients were undertaken across 14 sites in Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States to understand the effect of peer support during recovery from critical illness...

BACKGROUND: The association between peripheral striated muscle strength and respiratory muscle strength has been confirmed in a number of disorders. However, this association is unknown in intensive care unit patients with tracheostomies. OBJECTIVE: To examine correlations between handgrip force, maximum inspiratory pressure (MIP), and maximum expiratory pressure (MEP) in intensive care unit patients with tracheostomies. METHODS: Twenty patients (7 women, 13 men) with tracheostomies, in the intensive care unit longer than 11 days, in stable condition, with functional limbs, and with Glasgow Coma Scale scores of 15 were recruited...

BACKGROUND: Significant resources have been allocated to decreasing the number of preventable deaths in hospitals, but identifying preventable factors and then leveraging them to effect system-wide change remains challenging. OBJECTIVE: To determine the ability of a novel in-person, multidisciplinary "rapid mortality review" process to identify deaths that are preventable and action items that lead to improvements in care. METHODS: Rapid mortality review sessions were conducted weekly for patients who died in the medical intensive care unit...

BACKGROUND: Sleep duration and proportion of daytime versus nighttime sleep may affect cognitive function in older patients in the transition out of the intensive care unit. OBJECTIVE: To explore the relationship between the daytime-to-nighttime sleep ratio and cognitive impairment in older intensive care unit survivors. METHODS: The study enrolled 30 older adults within 24 to 48 hours after intensive care unit discharge. All participants were functionally independent before admission and underwent mechanical ventilation in the intensive care unit...

BACKGROUND: Existing sepsis quality improvement initiatives focus on recognition and treatment of sepsis upon hospital admission. Yet many patients are evaluated in the clinic within 1 day of sepsis hospitalization. OBJECTIVES: To determine the circumstances of clinic visits that precede sepsis hospitalization, including illness severity, whether patients are referred to the hospital, and time lapse and change in illness severity between clinic and hospital evaluation...

BACKGROUND: Prone positioning is a standard treatment for moderate to severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), but the outcomes associated with manual versus automatic prone positioning have not been evaluated. OBJECTIVE: To retrospectively evaluate outcomes associated with manual versus automatic prone positioning as part of a pronation quality improvement project implemented by a multidisciplinary team. METHODS: A retrospective, descriptive-comparative approach was used to analyze data from 24 months of a prone positioning protocol for ARDS...

BACKGROUND: Patients in intensive care units are 5 times more likely to have skin integrity issues develop than patients in other units. Identifying the most appropriate assessment tool may be critical to preventing pressure injuries in intensive care patients. OBJECTIVES: To validate the Cubbin-Jackson skin risk assessment in the critical care setting and to compare the predictive accuracy of the Cubbin-Jackson and Braden scales for the same patients. METHODS: In 5 intensive care units, the Cubbin-Jackson and Braden assessments were completed by different clinicians within 61 minutes of each other for 4137 patients between October 2017 and March 2018...

BACKGROUND: Interest in the pulmonary microbiome is growing, particularly in patients undergoing mechanical ventilation. OBJECTIVES: To explore the pulmonary microbiome over time in patients undergoing prolonged mechanical ventilation and to evaluate the effect of an oral suctioning intervention on the microbiome. METHODS: This descriptive subanalysis from a clinical trial involved a random sample of 16 participants (7 intervention, 9 control) who received mechanical ventilation for at least 5 days...

BACKGROUND: With telemedicine technology, off-site expert clinicians can consult in real time with bedside nurses and providers. The success of telemedicine may depend on its acceptance by bedside nurses and providers. OBJECTIVES: To compare nurses' perceptions of telemedicine in 2 intensive care units (ICUs) at Emory University Hospital, an academic medical center, and to determine the relation between nurses' years of ICU experience and their perceptions of telemedicine in the hospital's ICUs (Emory e-ICU Center)...

BACKGROUND: As the role of a health care system's influence on nurse burnout becomes better understood, an under-standing of the impact of a nurses' work environment on burnout and well-being is also imperative. OBJECTIVE: To identify the key elements of a healthy work environment associated with burnout, secondary trauma, and compassion satisfaction, as well as the effect of burnout and the work environment on nurse turnover. METHODS: A total of 779 nurses in 24 critical care units at 13 hospitals completed a survey measuring burnout and quality of the work environment...
