BACKGROUND: The first wave of coronavirus disease 2019 was a global event for which nurses had limited time to prepare before receiving an influx of high-acuity patients and navigating new plans of care. OBJECTIVES: To understand nurses' lived experiences during the COVID-19 outbreak and to examine their resiliency. METHODS: A convergent mixed methods design was applied in this study. For the quantitative portion, resiliency was measured by using the Brief Resilience Coping Scale...

BACKGROUND: Sudden cardiac arrest is a major cause of death worldwide. Performance of prompt, high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation improves patient outcomes. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the association between patient survival of in-hospital cardiac arrest and 2 independent variables: adherence to resuscitation guidelines and patient severity of illness, as indicated by the number of organ supportive therapies in use before cardiac arrest. METHODS: An observational study was conducted using prospectively collected data from a convenience sample...

Graduate students complete papers for course requirements, doctor of nursing practice and master's projects, and doctoral dissertations. The valuable information contained in these school papers may be appropriate for publication in professional journals. Graduate students must learn the key differences between school paper and journal article styles. Using this critical information, students can revise their school papers in journal style and achieve a successful publication that contributes to the literature and, ultimately, to the care of patients and their families...

Cardiac arrest affects more than 500 000 people every year, with significant associated morbidity and mortality. In addition to high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation and early defibrillation, medications are included in treatment algorithms. Epinephrine and amiodarone are commonly used, with other medications being used in specific situations of cardiac arrest. Although participating in the care of a patient in cardiac arrest is complex and stressful, having a baseline understanding of the medications being used, routes of administration, and special considerations can be helpful in mitigating some of the stress in these situations...

Linda Dalessio
More than 356 000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in the United States annually. Complications involving post-cardiac arrest syndrome occur because of ischemic-reperfusion injury to the brain, lungs, heart, and kidneys. Post-cardiac arrest syndrome is a clinical state that involves global brain injury, myocardial dysfunction, macrocirculatory dysfunction, increased vulnerability to infection, and persistent precipitating pathology (ie, the cause of the arrest). The severity of outcomes varies and depends on precipitating factors, patient health before cardiac arrest, duration of time to return of spontaneous circulation, and underlying comorbidities...

BACKGROUND: Balancing fluid administration and titration of vasoactive medications is critical to preventing postoperative complications in cardiac surgical patients. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the impact of implementing a goal-directed therapy protocol in the cardiovascular intensive care unit on total intravenous fluids administered on the day of surgery, rates of acute kidney injury, and hospital length of stay. METHODS: A fluid resuscitation protocol using dynamic assessment of fluid responsiveness with stroke volume index was developed, and nurses were prepared for its implementation using simulation training...

Nurses are central to the care of patients with Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis. Patients with these conditions present with nuanced symptoms and have complex nursing care needs. Although much of the exact pathophysiology of these diseases is not known, all nurses benefit from a fundamental understanding of the genesis of skin manifestations, associated pharmacology, and prognosis. The care of patients hospitalized with Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis consists of wound care, infection prevention, comfort management, hydration and nutrition, psychosocial support, and the prevention of long-term complications...

Systemic lupus erythematosus is a chronic autoimmune disorder that causes a wide range of mild to life-threatening conditions that require hospitalization and critical care. The morbidity and mortality of systemic lupus erythematosus are associated with the organ system damage caused by intermittent or chronic disease activity and with the complications of long-term and toxic immunosuppressant medication regimens. This article reviews the epidemiologic, clinical, diagnostic, and therapeutic information essential for critical care clinicians who provide care to patients with systemic lupus erythematosus...

Infection with HIV is a chronic condition that requires daily medication to suppress viral replication. With appropriate treatment, people living with HIV have a life expectancy approaching that of the general population. However, they are at increased risk for comorbidities including cardiovascular disease, renal disease, type 2 diabetes, neurologic conditions, and cancers, often with worse outcomes than in patients without HIV. When they are admitted to critical care settings, care considerations, particularly regarding antiretroviral therapy, must be addressed...

Energy expenditure (EE) is the sum of metabolic activity within the body at a given time and comprises basal EE, diet-induced thermogenesis, and physical activity. In the intensive care unit, EE is most often assessed to determine a patient's caloric requirements. Energy expenditure also may be useful to understand disease states and the metabolic impact of interventions. Several methods for estimating EE are relevant for clinical use, including indirect calorimetry, predictive equations, exhaled carbon dioxide volume, and the Fick method...
