JOURNAL ARTICLE
Staci S Reynolds, Julee Waldrop
INTRODUCTION: Quantitative research and quality improvement (QI) both seek to improve care provided to patients. However, clinicians often blur the lines between how to appropriately analyze data from these methodologies. Clinicians may inappropriately use statistical analyses for QI initiatives, rather than using run and statistical process control (SPC) charts to analyze improvements in outcomes. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this article was to address the analytic methods used for QI initiatives in the clinical setting in an effort to show clinicians how to identify meaningful improvements in clinical practice...

BACKGROUND: The previous studies have revealed that the psychological state of nurses, who work in the front line, is negatively affected by the situations that created high pressure such as epidemics and disasters in the past. OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to determine some characteristics that affect nurses' humor styles and psychological well-being during the COVID-19 pandemic period, and to determine the relationship between humor styles and psychological well-being...

REVIEW
Mohamed Toufic El Hussein, Dona Job, Jonah Hakkola
Aortic regurgitation (AR) is a valvular disease characterized by retrograde blood flow from the aorta to the left ventricle. Various etiologies result in either an acute or chronic clinical presentation of AR and affect the severity of disease progression. Acute AR is a medical emergency caused by sudden increases in left ventricular volume. Immediate surgical intervention, vasoactive agents, and antibiotics are crucial for management. Chronic AR progresses gradually, leading to heart failure symptoms due to left ventricular remodeling...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Zuhal Gulsoy, Iclal Ozdemir Kol
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Pain assessment and management are an important issue to ensure the comfort of patients in the intensive care unit, and reducing pain is an important nursing intervention. Therefore, it is important to evaluate pain correctly. For correct pain management, it is necessary to correctly determine the presence and severity of pain. The study was conducted to determine whether endotracheal suctioning was painless and whether the Behavioral Pain Scale (BPS) was an accurate assessment tool to assess pain during endotracheal suctioning...

JOURNAL ARTICLE

BACKGROUND: Although family caregivers experienced negative psychological symptoms associated with witnessing intensive care unit delirium in their loved ones, there is a lack of clear understanding of how delirium is associated with family caregiver psychological distress. Uncertainty could be a factor contributed to this association. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between uncertainty and psychological distress among family caregivers of patients with delirium in intensive care units...

BACKGROUND: It is important to detect oral health problems early among patients admitted to pediatric intensive care units to establish the diagnosis and consequently allow nurses to plan appropriate oral care practices. OBJECTIVES: The study aimed to assess the oral health status of patients admitted to pediatric intensive care units. METHODS: This descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted from June to September 2021 in the pediatric intensive care units of 3 hospitals...

BACKGROUND: Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is a health care-acquired infection that leads to poor patient outcomes, increased length of hospital stay, exhaustion of health care resources, and unnecessary increases in health care costs. OBJECTIVES: This project was designed to educate registered nurses on the importance of an evidence-based VAP prevention bundle that reduces the overall incidence of VAP infections. METHODS: Patients (N = 146) were enrolled in this quasi-experimental project that took place in a 14-bed neuro trauma surgical burn intensive care unit (ICU) at a level 1 trauma center...

Kintsugi serves as a powerful metaphor for nurse externs and residents to identify lessons learned from the pandemic and to refocus on the golden cracks to foster respect, resilience, and rebuilding. Kintsugi encourages nurses to embrace their challenges, find strength in their vulnerabilities, and grow from their experiences.

BACKGROUND: Hospitalized patients with coronavirus disease experienced different challenges at treatment centers; however, there is no evidence in Ethiopia on patients' experiences at COVID-19 treatment centers. Therefore, the aim of this study was to explore the lived experiences of hospitalized patients with coronavirus disease at Tibebe Ghion Comprehensive Specialized Hospital, Bahir Dar, Ethiopia, in 2021. METHODS: A qualitative phenomenological study design with a heterogeneous purposive sampling technique was used...

BACKGROUND: In the last decades, the use of the helmet interface to deliver noninvasive respiratory support has steadily increased. When delivering oxygen therapy, conditioning of inspired gas is mandatory, as the water content of medical gas is neglectable. To minimize the risk of airway damage, it is recommended to achieve an absolute humidity greater than 10 mg H2O/L. The primary aim of the study was to assess the performance of 3 different heated humidifiers to condition gas during helmet continuous positive airway pressure and to compare them with a setting without active humidification...

BACKGROUND/INTRODUCTION: Critically ill older adults are profoundly inactive while in the intensive care unit (ICU), and this inactivity persists after discharge from the ICU. Older ICU survivors who were mechanically ventilated are at high risk for post-ICU cognitive impairment. OBJECTIVES/AIMS: The present study examined the relationship between the ratio of daytime to nighttime activity and executive function in older ICU survivors. METHODS: This was a secondary analysis of pooled data from 2 primary studies of older adults who were functionally independent prior to hospitalization, mechanically ventilated while in ICU, and within 24 to 48 hours post-ICU discharge...
