Burnout is a state of emotional and physical depletion. Its occurrence among critical care nurses (CCNs) is a concept that has gained traction yet remains an issue with global consequences. Nurses are especially vulnerable to burnout due to the persistent stressors they are exposed to, which include the general work environment, biological factors, and emerging changes caused by COVID-19. This study aims to assess the severity of burnout among CCNs during the COVID-19 pandemic and its associated factors. A descriptive cross-sectional questionnaire was used in this study to measure the estimated burnout rate among CCNs in Palestine and establish associations with potential factors...

Moral distress can impact nurses and the care team significantly. A profession dedicated to the principles of caring and compassion is often subjected to patients receiving futile treatment. With the proliferation of extreme life-prolonging measures come the difficulties in the withdrawal of those medical modalities. If a prognosis is poor and care is perceived as curative rather than palliative, providers may often feel conflicted and distressed by their interventions. The American Association of Colleges of Nursing has expressed growing concern about an increase in the use of inappropriate life-support treatments related to futile care...

Nurses are at high risk of burnout, desire to leave the profession, and possibly missed nursing care due to the exhausting nature of caring. Missed nursing care may also affect nurses' burnout and desire to leave the profession. Therefore, the objective of this study was to determine the missed nursing care and its relationship with burnout and desire to leave the profession among intensive care unit nurses. The participants of this descriptive analytical study were 249 Iranian nurses working in intensive care units in 2022...

The use of diaries is known to reduce post-intensive care syndrome in the intensive care unit (ICU) for survivors and families. Studies are needed to explore nurses' experience with diaries. Although the diaries are written for the patient, the diary entries may be helpful for the nurse as well. Research has shown that ICU diaries fill in significant memory gaps and aid in the resolution of delusional memories. However, there is a shortage of knowledge about the nurses' experience of writing caring notes in diaries...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Cassandra Asberry, Alaina Martini
Prehospital rapid sequence intubation (RSI), like inpatient RSI, is not without risk of adverse effects to the patient. The most notable of these adverse effects is postintubation hemodynamic instability. Air medical providers choose induction agents for critically ill patients who require emergent airway management, some of whom may already be hemodynamically unstable prior to RSI. Ketamine is often selected as the induction agent of choice for patients who are either unstable before RSI or have a high index of suspicion of becoming unstable in the postintubation period...

Waveform capnography is a noninvasive measurement of ventilation and perfusion commonly employed in the prehospital setting. It is easy to apply, and modern cardiac monitors are equipped with the necessary ports and capability to display results. Despite its ease of use, end-tidal CO2 monitoring has not yet achieved widespread adoption within the hospital setting. It is routinely used in the emergency department and by anesthesiologists, but its application could support ICU management in critically ill patients...

Brandon Jones, Cassandra Asberry
Prehospital intubation is a high-risk, relatively low frequency procedure. Provider experience plays a key role in first-pass success rates, especially in the setting of a difficult airway. While strong foundational knowledge is necessary to equip providers with an adequate understanding of intubation procedures and the skill set needed to manage a difficult airway, effective equipment may provide an extra boost in first-pass success for novice airway providers. First-pass success is correlated with decreased adverse events and should be maximized in the prehospital setting...

Air medical providers are responsible for the care of an incredibly diverse patient population. When it is time to transport a patient, providers must be prepared for complex situations, each requiring different skills, medications, and critical thinking. Scene flights will have providers landing and providing care in the prehospital setting where an interfacility transport requires the patient to be taken from one hospital to another. Specialty flights require special equipment, personnel, and aircraft preparedness to be completed...

Air medical transport of critically ill and injured patients began during World War II. Now air transport has become an integral part of health care, nationally and internationally. With the development of portable medical equipment critical care has extended beyond the hospital by bringing critical care to the scene or to rural hospitals. Air medical programs transport critically ill and injured patients by helicopter or airplane while continuously providing critical care enroute. These transports are interfacility from accident scenes, disaster areas, and remote locations where the patient is transported to a tertiary care center so that definitive care will be provided...

Vertical flight was sought-after by scientists for centuries, finding early beginnings in children's toys and slowly developing into the modern helicopter. For centuries, true success was elusive, and many machines failed to achieve safe, controlled flight. Despite slow progress, vertical flight enthusiasts were unrelenting and continued trialing new concepts until one finally rose above the rest. As technology advanced, the critical role of helicopters in medical evacuation became apparent. Throughout recent history, continuous progress in vertical flight technology has led to widespread and multifaceted use of helicopters in civilian and military medical operations...
