Sleep Promotion in Critically Ill and Injured Patients Cared for in the Intensive Care Unit

2014-08-27 03:15:24 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Sleep deprivation in healthy volunteers is associated with immune dysfunction. This adverse effect of sleep deprivation likely occurs in patients suffering from acute injury and critical illness requiring intensive care unit (ICU) admission. Studies have demonstrated that sleep in ICU patients is highly abnormal. The global hypothesis for this proposal is that a strategy to promote sleep in ICU patients will increase time in rapid eye movement (REM) and slow wave sleep (SWS). This three phase proposal examines the feasibility of a sleep promotion strategy for injured and critically ill patients in the ICU.

Phase I (Development and Training): Develop an intervention manual for sleep promotion, Sleep Enhancement Program (SEP), and train ICU staff.

Phase II (Validation and Safety): Implement SEP and test for protocol fidelity and safety.

Phase III (Efficacy): Conduct a pilot trail to determine efficacy of SEP to improve SWS in ICU patients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Periods of sleep manifested by changes in EEG activity and certain behavioral correlates; includes Stage 1: sleep onset, drowsy sleep; Stage 2: light sleep; Stages 3 and 4: delta sleep, light sleep, deep sleep, telencephalic sleep.

The state of being deprived of sleep under experimental conditions, due to life events, or from a wide variety of pathophysiologic causes such as medication effect, chronic illness, psychiatric illness, or sleep disorder.

Dyssomnias (i.e., insomnias or hypersomnias) associated with dysfunction of internal sleep mechanisms or secondary to a sleep-related medical disorder (e.g., sleep apnea, post-traumatic sleep disorders, etc.). (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)

Movements or behaviors associated with sleep, sleep stages, or partial arousals from sleep that may impair sleep maintenance. Parasomnias are generally divided into four groups: arousal disorders, sleep-wake transition disorders, parasomnias of REM sleep, and nonspecific parasomnias. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p191)

A sleep disorder of central nervous system origin characterized by prolonged nocturnal sleep and periods of daytime drowsiness. Affected individuals experience difficulty with awakening in the morning and may have associated sleep drunkenness, automatic behaviors, and memory disturbances. This condition differs from narcolepsy in that daytime sleep periods are longer, there is no association with CATAPLEXY, and the multiple sleep latency onset test does not record sleep-onset rapid eye movement sleep. (From Chokroverty, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, pp319-20; Psychiatry Clin Neurosci 1998 Apr:52(2):125-129)
