Effect Of Clustered Nursing Interventions On Physiological Response In Critically Ill Patients

2019-10-28 13:57:24 | BioPortfolio


To determine physiological responses related to clustered nursing interventions among critically ill patients.


Clustered nursing interventions are defined as group of interventions more than six for each patient in one nursing interaction.The study was conducted on 80 mechanically ventilated adult patients admitted to intensive care units of Alexandria Main University Hospital and Damanhour Medical National Institute. The most common procedures provided by nurses in direct care for those patients were vital signs measurements, central venous pressure measurement, suctioning, feeding, laboratory sampling, general care, repositioning, and administration of medications. Physiological parameters measured were end-tidal carbon dioxide using capnography, vital signs using bed side monitor, and oxygen saturation using pulse oximeter.

Effects of Remifentanil on Respiratory Function in Mechanically Ventilated Patients

Sedation is widely used in mechanically ventilated patients. Propofol, benzodiazepines and opioids are the most used drugs. The study hypothesis is that sedation with remifentanil (an opio...

Evaluation of Two Enteral Nutrition Strategies in Mechanically Ventilated Patients

The aim of this study is to compare two strategies of early enteral nutrition in terms of efficacy and complications in mechanically ventilated patients.

Impacts of Low-Dose Dexmedetomidine on Sleep Quality in Mechanically Ventilated ICU Patients

Sleep disturbances frequently occur in intensive care unit (ICU) patients undergoing mechanical ventilation. In a previous study, sedative dose dexmedetomidine (median 0.6 microgram/kg/h) ...

Dexmedetomidine Versus Propofol for Prolonged Sedation in Poly Traumatized Mechanically Ventilated Patients

Dexmedetomidine, a central and peripheral α2-receptor agonist distinct from GABA receptor for benzodiazepines and propofol, has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration only f...

Frequency of Ventilator Associated Pneumonia (VAP) in Mechanically Ventilated Patients Using the AnapnoGuard System

Ventilator Associated Pneumonia (VAP) is a common complication experienced by mechanically ventilated patients and within the framework of Respiratory Intensive Care Units. The AnapnoGuard...

Protocol for a prospective, observational cohort study of awareness in mechanically ventilated patients admitted from the emergency department: the ED-AWARENESS study.

Awareness with paralysis is a complication with potentially devastating psychological consequences for mechanically ventilated patients. While rigorous investigation into awareness has occurred for op...

Quantitative and qualitative investigation of the stress experiences of intensive care unit patients mechanically ventilated for more than 12 hr.

The aim was to qualitatively and quantitatively clarify the stress experiences of patients who were mechanically ventilated in an intensive care unit (ICU) for more than 12 hr.

Does oral care with chlorhexidine reduce ventilator-associated pneumonia in mechanically ventilated adults?

Oral colonisation by pathogens contributes to contracting ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). The aim of this review was to determine whether the use of the antiseptic chlorhexidine in the intra-or...

Energy balance in obese, mechanically ventilated intensive care unit patients.

The aims of this study were, first, to compare the predicted (calculated) energy requirements based on standard equations with target energy requirement based on indirect calorimetry (IC) in criticall...

Effects of deep sedation on sleep in critically Ill medical patients on mechanical ventilation.

Atypical EEG patterns not consistent with standard sleep staging criteria have been observed in medical intensive care unit (ICU) patients. Our aim was to examine the relationship between sleep archit...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A technique of respiratory therapy, in either spontaneously breathing or mechanically ventilated patients, in which airway pressure is maintained above atmospheric pressure throughout the respiratory cycle by pressurization of the ventilatory circuit.

Devices which mechanically oxygenate venous blood extracorporeally. They are used in combination with one or more pumps for maintaining circulation during open heart surgery and for assisting the circulation in patients seriously ill with some cardiac and pulmonary disorders. (UMDNS, 1999)

A component of the gastrointestinal tract of some reptiles (ALLIGATORS AND CROCODILES), as well as certain fish, mollusks, and insects. It functions to mechanically grind food.

A genus of plant viruses in the family FLEXIVIRIDAE, that cause mosaic and ringspot symptoms. Transmission occurs mechanically. Potato virus X is the type species.

A genus of the family POXVIRIDAE, subfamily CHORDOPOXVIRINAE, consisting of ether-sensitive viruses of leporids and squirrels. They commonly cause tumors and are usually transmitted mechanically by arthropods. MYXOMA VIRUS is the type species.
