BACKGROUND: High inspiratory oxygen concentrations are frequently administered in ventilated patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) but may induce lung injury and systemic toxicity. We compared beliefs and actual clinical practice regarding oxygen therapy in critically ill patients. METHODS: In three large teaching hospitals in the Netherlands, ICU physicians and nurses were invited to complete a questionnaire about oxygen therapy. Furthermore, arterial blood gas (ABG) analysis data and ventilator settings were retrieved to assess actual oxygen practice in the same hospitals 1 year prior to the survey...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The prognosis of patients with respiratory failure in the ICU remains poor, while current therapeutic approaches are aimed at minimizing ventilator-induced lung injury. Stem cell-based therapies have the potential to transform respiratory failure treatment by achieving lung repair. The purpose of this article is to critically review the large body of clinical and experimental work performed with respect to the use of stem/progenitor cells in respiratory failure, and to discuss current challenges and future directions...

Bedside and advanced practice nurses in acute and critical care often view chest radiologic images of their patients. Correlation of findings on chest radiologic images with results of physical and other diagnostic assessments can provide information for making appropriate clinical judgments. Radiologic images of the chest available for acutely ill patients now include frontal/lateral chest radiographs and computed tomography (CT) scans. The purpose of this article is for the reader to review basic skills for interpreting chest radiographs, gain skill in reviewing CT scans of the chest, and be able to apply more advanced interpretation skills for both chest radiographs and chest CT scans...
