The purpose of this pilot study was to evaluate the feasibility of the self-efficacy based Epilepsy-Motivate and Outcome Expectations for Vigorous Exercise (EMOVE) intervention and report on the preliminary efficacy of this intervention aimed at improving exercise behaviors in adults with epilepsy. Methods: A single-group, repeated-measures design was used in 30 outpatients. Data were collected at baseline and 12 weeks after the intervention. Participant outcomes included Self-Efficacy and Outcome Expectations for Exercise in Epilepsy, Beck Depression Inventory-II, Quality of Life in Epilepsy Inventory-31, seizure frequency, average daily steps, and body mass index...

OBJECTIVE: This review evaluates the use of virtual reality (VR) tools in cognitive rehabilitation of stroke-affected individuals. METHODS: Studies performed between 2010 and 2017 that fulfilled inclusion criteria were selected from PubMed, Scopus, Cochrane, and Web of Sciences databases. The search combined the terms "VR," "rehabilitation," and "stroke." RESULTS: Stroke patients experienced significant improvement in many cognitive domains (such as executive and visual-spatial abilities and speech, attention, and memory skills) after the use of VR training...

BACKGROUND: This study was developed to explore the efficacy of introducing the Amharic phrase "Ye-Angol Tikat," which translates to "brain attack" in English, as a mechanism to enhance stroke education among the Amharic-speaking Ethiopian community. METHODS: A prospective, nonrandomized, survey was completed by 294 Amharic-speaking persons. The survey explored support and desire for a culturally appropriate terminology for stroke. RESULTS: Most of the participants (93%) support the need for an Amharic term to describe stroke...

OBJECTIVE: Drug and alcohol (DA)-related emergency department (ED) visits represent an increasing fraction the head-injured population seen in the ED. Such patients present a challenge to the evaluation of head injury and determination of need for computed tomographic (CT) scan and further clinical path. This effort examined whether an electroencephalogram (EEG)-based biomarker could aid in reducing unnecessary CT scans in the intoxicated ED population. METHOD: This is a retrospective secondary study of an independent prospective US Food and Drug Administration validation trial that demonstrated the efficacy of (1) an automatic Structural Injury Classifier for the likelihood of injury visible on a CT (CT+) and (2) an EEG-based Brain Function Index to assess functional impairment in minimally impaired, head-injured adults presenting within 3 days of injury...

BACKGROUND: Early neurological deterioration (END) is common after stroke and represents a poor prognostic marker. Manual pupillary assessment to detect END is subjective and has poor interrater reliability. Novel methods of automated pupillometry may be more reliable and accurate. This study aims to evaluate the acceptability and feasibility of automated pupillometry in patients with acute stroke and healthy volunteers and compare its interrater reliability with that of the traditional manual method...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Thirty-day hospital readmissions have been shown to be a measure of quality and result in higher mortality and increased costs. Readmissions are a target for hospitals and payers; thus, several centers have developed predictive readmission scores to identify high-risk patients. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the current hospital-wide readmission risk calculator and the ability of this tool to predict 30-day readmissions in the neurocritical care population...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to examine the relationships among multiple sclerosis (MS)-related symptoms, sleep hygiene behaviors, and sleep quality in adults with MS who self-report fatigue. BACKGROUND: Fatigue is a frequent, prevalent symptom among adults with MS. Few studies have examined the relationship among fatigue and other symptoms with sleep quality and sleep behaviors. DESIGN: This is a descriptive correlational study...

Acute and chronic neurological disorders impair sleep. Despite the availability of theoretical/mathematical frameworks about sleep, the nursing profession rarely incorporates these models. The purpose of this article was to analyze the 2-process model of sleep regulation using Fawcett and DeSanto-Madeya's method, a systematic approach for determining whether a theory is relevant to nursing. The 2-process model has 3 concepts: process S (sleep-dependent process), process C (circadian-timing-dependent process), and total sleep propensity (summation of processes S and C)...

In this retrospective, nonexperimental, comparative descriptive design using convenience sampling, the timeliness of care delivered by 11 Stroke Certified Registered Nurses (SCRNs) to 95 hyperacute stroke patients (last known well of 4.5 hours or less) on the acute stroke protocol set by Target: Stroke Phase II Campaign Manual was compared with that of 13 non-SCRNs in a small, rural, level III stroke facility in the southwestern region of the United States. There was statistical significance in the total timeliness of care delivered by SCRNs to hyperacute stroke patients as compared with the non-SCRNs (t = -4...

DaiWai M Olson, Stefany Ortega-Pérez
The cue-response theory is herewith proposed to replace the coma cue-response conceptual framework as a nursing theory for care of patients with acquired brain injury (ABI). After ABI, nurses assess patients and develop an understanding of their condition by interpreting meaning from physiologic and observational or behavioral cues. These interpretations form the basis for optimizing the timing of discrete nursing interventions; the outcome of which influences the trajectory toward recovery or toward secondary brain injury...

PURPOSE: The provision of conscientious nursing care is at the forefront of health quality. Unfortunately, a lack of standardization in the assignment of patients to nurses can lead to care inequities. Rehab MATRIX is a nursing-led tool that equitably assigns patients using select acuity variables. DESIGN AND METHODS: In this initial study, we asked focus groups of 19 registered nurses and 8 patient care assistants to identify medical interventions that increase the effort of nursing care at a 24-bed inpatient rehabilitation facility (IRF)...

BACKGROUND: Many patients with neurological insults requiring neurointensive care have an increased risk of acute symptomatic seizures. Various nursing interventions performed when caring for these patients may elicit pathological cerebral electrical activity including seizures and stimulus-induced rhythmic, periodic, or ictal discharges (SIRPIDs). The aim was to explore changes in electroencephalogram (EEG) due to neurointensive care nursing interventions. METHODS: A convenience sample was recruited between November 2015 and April 2016, consisting of 12 adult patients with impaired consciousness due to a neurosurgical condition...

Treatment options for anticoagulated patients presenting with ischemic stroke are limited. Off-label use of idarucizumab to rapidly reverse the anticoagulant effect of dabigatran may ensure eligibility for thrombolytic therapy with alteplase. This case describes a 77-year-old white male who presented to the hospital 89 minutes after sudden onset of right-sided hemiparesis, dysarthria, and facial palsy. Significant history included atrial fibrillation and previous right-sided cortical stroke. Medication reconciliation revealed he was taking dabigatran 150 mg twice a day, with the last dose being 179 minutes before presentation...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Symptoms in glioma patients are distinctly different from symptoms in patients with other types of cancer and have a high impact on quality of life. In this study, a stepwise approach of developing a glioma module for assessment of symptoms, based on a Dutch adapted and validated version of the Edmonton Symptom Assessment System, is described. METHODS: Three phases of instrument development were conducted: a systematic literature review and a focus group interview with experts were performed (phase I) to generate relevant symptoms and construct a preliminary module (phase II)...

Kivan Çevik, Emre Namik
BACKGROUND: Comatose patients are exposed to sensory deprivation in the intensive care units. Auditory stimulation of patients who are unconscious is a nonmedical procedure. This study examines the effect of organized voice, performed by a nurse, on the state of consciousness of comatose patients in intensive care units. METHOD: This randomized controlled trial study of 60 patients was conducted fitting between August 2017 and February 2018. For 10 days, patients received the voice of a male nurse twice a day in the morning and night shifts, recorded on MP3 and repeated at least 3 to 4 times...
