BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE Endotracheal suction is one of the most common and harmful procuedres performed on mechanically ventilated children. The aim of the study was to establish the feasibility of a randomised controlled trial (RCT) examining the effectiveness of normal saline instillation (NSI) and a positive end-expiratory pressure recruitment manoeuvre (RM) with endotracheal suction in the paediatric intensive care unit. METHODS Pilot 2 × 2 factorial RCT. The study was conducted at a 36-bed ter...

Abstract Background Sleep is vital to our wellbeing. Critically ill patients are vulnerable with effects of sleep deprivation including weakened immune function, decreased glucose tolerance, and increased sympathetic activity. Intensive care unit (ICU) patients' sleep evaluation is difficult and often not reliable. The most commonly used instrument for assessing ICU patients' perspective of their sleep, Richards-Campbell Sleep Questionnaire (RCSQ), has not been reported to have undergone known-g...

Abstract Background Many academics and clinicians who assess nursing students as part of their work-integrated learning experiences encounter difficulties with awarding a failing grade to students who do not meet fitness for practice standards. Objectives The aim of this study was to explore and further our understanding of assessors' experiences of failure-to-fail of nursing students within work-integrated learning. Design This aim was achieved through an exploratory, sequential, mixed methods ...

Abstract Background Critically ill patients in an intensive care setting often require arterial catheters for blood pressure monitoring and arterial blood collection. Arterial catheter failure, which manifests in both mechanical and infective forms, remains common. Dressing and securement inadequacies may impact this failure; however, the best method for dressing and securing arterial catheters is yet to be determined. Objectives The objective of this study was to establish the feasibility of a ...

Data sources: A systematic search for studies was undertaken in the electronic databases CENTRAL, Medline, EMBASE, and EBSCO CINAHL from 2003. Study selection: Included studies assessed suction interventions in children (≤18 ys old) receiving mechanical ventilation. The primary outcome was defined a priori as duration of mechanical ventilation. Secondary ou...

The importance of feedback in workplace-based settings cannot be underestimated. Approaches that evaluate feedback reflect either the sender’s or receiver’s viewpoint in isolation of each other. This study investigated prevailing student and practitioner views of feedback resulting from development and testing of a survey about feedback. This study used a cross-sectional design, incorporating use of expert consultation and factor analysis of surveys. Fifty-two items based on identified attribute...
