Measuring the nursing workload in intensive care with the Nursing Activities Score (NAS): A prospective study in 16 hospitals in Belgium.

The evaluation of nursing workload is a common practice in intensive care units (ICUs). It allows the calculation of an optimal nurse/patient ratio (N/P) which is a major challenge to ensuring the quality of care while controlling the costs of health care. The objectives of this study were, therefore, to evaluate the N/P ratio and to study nursing activities in intensive care in French-speaking Belgium.


Intensive care for organ preservation: A four-stage pathway.

Intensive care for organ preservation (ICOP) is defined as the initiation or pursuit of intensive care not to save the patient's life, but to protect and optimize organs for transplantation.

The ATLANTIC study: Anti-Xa level assessment in trauma intensive care.

To quantify the pharmacodynamic (PD) activity of daily subcutaneous (SC) enoxaparin as venous thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis in high-risk trauma patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU).


Referral and admission to intensive care: A qualitative study of doctors' practices in a Tanzanian university hospital.

Intensive care is care for critically ill patients with potentially reversible conditions. Patient selection for intensive care should be based on potential benefit but since demand exceeds availability, rationing is needed. In Tanzania, the availability of Intensive Care Units (ICUs) is very limited and the practices for selecting patients for intensive care are not known. The aim of this study was to explore doctors' experiences and perceptions of ICU referral and admission processes in a university hospi...

Presence of Bisphenol A and Parabens in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit: An Exploratory Study of Potential Sources of Exposure.

Newborns in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) are in contact with a variety of medical products whose production might include synthetic chemicals with hormonal activity.

Presence of Bisphenol A and Parabens in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit: An Exploratory Study of Potential Sources of Exposure.

Newborns in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) are in contact with a variety of medical products whose production might include synthetic chemicals with hormonal activity.

Designing and validating a measuring tool for the factors affecting the distribution of hospitals' intensive care beds in Iran.

Hospital services are the most expensive medical service in modern health care systems. Intense care beds, in particular, are more important. The present study was conducted to design and validate a measuring tool for the factors affecting the distribution of hospitals' intensive care beds in Iran. In this mixed method study, first, all known factors affecting the distribution of hospitals' intensive care beds were extracted by reviewing related literature. Then, all 60 confirmed items were categorized int...

The Quality of End-of-Life Care Among Intensive Care Unit Versus Ward Decedents.

Admissions to intensive care units (ICUs) are common during terminal hospitalizations, but little is known about how ICU care affects the end-of-life experience for patients dying in hospitals and their families.

The Japanese Intensive care PAtient Database (JIPAD): A national intensive care unit registry in Japan.

The Japanese Intensive care PAtient Database (JIPAD) was established to construct a high-quality Japanese intensive care unit (ICU) database.

HOSPITAL2HOME: DEMENTIA CAPABLE CARE TRANSITIONS-BETTER CARE AND BETTER OUTCOMES.

To stay in touch - intensive care patients' interactions with nurses during mobilisation.

Minimal sedation has made it possible to communicate and cooperate with intensive care patients and mobilisation can start earlier during their stay in the intensive care unit.

Association of an Emergency Department-Based Intensive Care Unit With Survival and Inpatient Intensive Care Unit Admissions.

Increased patient acuity, decreased intensive care unit (ICU) bed availability, and a shortage of intensivist physicians have led to strained ICU capacity. The resulting increase in emergency department (ED) boarding time for patients requiring ICU-level care has been associated with worse outcomes.

Palliative Care in Intensive Care Units.

Palliative care is becoming increasingly important in intensive care units. The main goal of palliative treatment is to improve quality of life in patients with critical and life-threatening conditions when curative therapies can no longer be achieved. Treatment is not limited to end-of-life care, but also includes relief of distressing symptoms such as pain, nausea, vomiting, dyspnea, delirium or anxiety, as well as communication with patients and their families. Defining patient-centred goals of care toge...

Obstetric Admissions to the Intensive Care Unit: A 18-Year Review in a Portuguese Tertiary Care Centre.

Maternal mortality and morbidity are important indicators of the quality of health-care services. Obstetric admissions to an intensive care unit may be considered a marker of maternal morbidity. The aim of this study was to determine the incidence, maternal morbidity and mortality of pregnant and postpartum women who required admission to the intensive care unit.

Development and validation of a multivariable risk score for prolonged length of stay in the surgical intensive care unit.

  BACKGROUND: Chronically critical illness is highly relevant in intensive care units, but the definitions in literature vary greatly. The timely detection of prolonged intensive care unit length of stay could support care planning for chronically critical ill patients.

Opioid and Benzodiazepine Iatrogenic Withdrawal Syndrome in Patients in the Intensive Care Unit.

Iatrogenic withdrawal syndrome is an increasingly recognized issue among adult patients in the intensive care unit. The prolonged use of opioids and benzodiazepines during the intensive care unit stay and preexisting disorders associated with their use put patients at risk of developing iatrogenic withdrawal syndrome. Although research to date is scant regarding iatrogenic withdrawal syndrome in adult patients in the intensive care unit, it is important to recognize and adequately manage iatrogenic withdraw...

Early for Everyone: Reconceptualizing Palliative Care in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

Palliative care (PC) in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is often provided exclusively to infants expected to die. Standards of care support providing PC early after diagnosis with any condition likely to impact quality of life.

Perception of Provision of Futile Care Among Clinicians in the Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit.

Futile care in the neuroscience intensive care unit (NSICU) can create moral distress for clinicians who may differ in their interpretation of the value of such care. We sought to compare the perception of provision of futile care in the NSICU among physicians, advanced practice providers, and intensive care unit registered nurses (ICURNs).

A survey of moral distress in staff working in intensive care in the UK - A reply.

A comparison of nurses' work satisfaction between single-room and multioccupancy adult intensive care units: A mixed-methods integrative review.

To systematically review and compare the evidence for the transition from multi- occupancy adult intensive care units to single room intensive care units.

Intensive care nurses on social media: An exploration of knowledge exchange on an intensive care virtual community of practice.

To explore the nature of knowledge exchange on a multi-disciplinary Australasian intensive care virtual community of practice, 'ICUConnect'.

Evidence-Based Strategies for the Prevention of Chronic Post-Intensive Care and Acute Care-Related Pain.

Chronic pain is prevalent in intensive care survivors and in patients who require acute care treatments. Many adverse consequences have been associated with chronic post-intensive care and acute care-related pain. Hence, interest in interventions to prevent these pain disorders has grown. To improve the understanding of the mechanisms of action of these interventions and their potential impacts, this article outlines the pathophysiology involved in the transition from acute to chronic pain, the epidemiology...

Thinking about strengths in end-of-life nursing practice: the case of intensive care unit nurses.

The intensive care unit (ICU) is a care context that is sometimes described as being unconducive to the values and ideals of a good death in end-of-life care. Such assumptions render the ICU emblematic of a troubling discourse about end-of-life care in this clinical context.

Assessment of Variability in End-of-Life Care Delivery in Intensive Care Units in the United States.

Overall, 1 of 5 decedents in the United States is admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU) before death.
