Diagnosis of CHD substantially affects parent mental health and family functioning, thereby influencing child neurodevelopmental and psychosocial outcomes. Recognition of the need to proactively support parent mental health and family functioning following cardiac diagnosis to promote psychosocial adaptation has increased substantially over recent years. However, significant gaps in knowledge remain and families continue to report critical unmet psychosocial needs. The Parent Mental Health and F...

BACKGROUND Parents of infants born with critical congenital heart disease are at risk for adverse mental health symptoms. The purpose of this study was to identify infant-, parent-, and environmental-based stressors for mothers and fathers after their infants' cardiac surgery, and to explore relationships between stressors and mental health symptoms of anxiety and depression. METHODS This study enrolled 28 biological mother-father dyads from families admitted to the paediatric cardiac intensive ...

BACKGROUND Prevention of neurodevelopmental sequelae is a high priority in the care of infants with congenital heart defects. Individualized family-centered developmental care has been identified as a promising approach to promote infant neurodevelopment during hospitalization. OBJECTIVE To educate nurses on the concept of individualized family-centered developmental care and its application to nursing practice and to reduce perceived barriers to its implementation. METHODS Two evidence-based vi...

Objective To evaluate the effect of a standardized feeding approach using a clinical nutrition pathway on weight-for-age Z score (WAZ) over hospital length of stay (HLOS) for infants with congenital heart disease (CHD). Study design A ten-year retrospective cohort study examined eligible infants who underwent neonatal cardiac surgery between July 2009 through December 2018 (n=987). Eligibility criteria included infants born at least 37 weeks gestation and a minimum birth weight of 2 kilograms wh...

Abstract Background Mothers of infants with congenital heart disease are at risk for depression. Objectives This study explored the influence on maternal depressive symptoms of several known factors for mothers in the pediatric cardiac intensive care unit, including perceived stressors, attachment, and anxiety. Methods This study was a secondary analysis of 30 mothers of infants awaiting cardiac surgery. Linear regressions were calculated to determine the relationships between perceived stressor...
Abstract Objective To estimate the effect of skin-to-skin contact (SSC) on biobehavioral measures of stress (anxiety and salivary cortisol) and attachment (attachment scores and salivary oxytocin) of mothers before and after their infants' neonatal cardiac surgery. Design A prospective interventional, baseline response–paired pilot study. Setting Cardiac center of a large, metropolitan, freestanding children's hospital. Participants Thirty women whose infants were hospitalized for neonatal cardi...

This paper describes how, as the COVID-19 pandemic emerged, one hospital-based center for nursing research and evidence-based practice capitalized on its unique skill mix to quickly pivot to provide hospital administrators and staff with timely, relevant evidence regarding the care of patients and families, as well as the protection of direct care providers and all support staff. The products produced by this center, both proactive and in direct response, contributed to clinical operations decis...

OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of ICU delirium in children less than 18 years old that underwent cardiac surgery within the last 30 days. The secondary aim of the study was to identify risk factors associated with ICU delirium in postoperative pediatric cardiac surgical patients. DESIGN A 1-day, multicenter point-prevalence study of delirium in pediatric postoperative cardiac surgery patients. SETTING Twenty-seven pediatric cardiac and general critical car...

BACKGROUND Nursing care of pediatric patients after cardiac surgery consists of close hemodynamic monitoring, often through transthoracic intracardiac catheters, requiring patients to remain on bed rest and limiting holding and mobility. OBJECTIVES The primary aim of this quality improvement project was to determine the feasibility of safely mobilizing pediatric patients with transthoracic intracardiac catheters out of bed. Once feasibility was established, the secondary aim was to increase the ...
