Sample and recruitment Practice nurses All PCAM-arm PNs were asked to take part in interviews buy prometrium 100 mg on-line. Owing to the low number of participating practices prometrium 100 mg with amex, all nurses consenting to participate were interviewed. In addition, PMs in two sites, and the lead PN in a further site who had contributed to the implementation of the research, were also invited and, subsequently, consented to take part in interviews. Patients An invitation to take part in a telephone interview was sent to all patients who had completed a baseline questionnaire. The invitation was included in the envelope containing their follow-up questionnaire. Patients wishing to take part in an interview provided their name and contact details on a form and returned this to the research team, together with a consent form, in a prepaid envelope. A researcher then contacted the patient to explain the purpose of the interview in more detail and arrange a suitable time for the interview. Verbal consent was further confirmed at the start of the audio-recording of the interviews. All consenting patients were interviewed and blinded to allocation. Procedure Nurses and other practice staff were interviewed by a member of the research team who had not been involved in supporting them during the data collection phase. Interviews were conducted by telephone and were audio-recorded. The audio-recording was unsuccessful for one interview, and for this interview, written notes were used to summarise the key points made. The experience of taking part in the training, and whether or not it adequately explained the purpose of the PCAM tool and prepared staff for its implementation, was explored, along with a discussion of perceptions of using the PCAM tool. Reasons for taking part in the study, views on whether or not the PCAM was an appropriate tool for nurse-led annual reviews and how the tool was used in a typical consultation were considered. Support within the practice and any impact on patient interaction and assessment of patient needs, particularly mental well-being, were discussed, as well as perceptions and use of the resource pack.

STUDY D: NURSE AND PATIENT PERCEPTIONS OF USING THE PATIENT CENTRED ASSESSMENT METHOD The integration of the resource pack and other PCAM-related issues with normal clinical practices were also explored. Future use of the PCAM and factors that would be needed for its widespread use were considered. Throughout the discussion, any barriers and facilitators encountered were probed. Interviews with patients considered issues that were discussed in their consultation, and whether or not they were aware that the nurse was using the PCAM tool. Patients were asked about their awareness of nurse attention to wider aspects of their overall well-being, and what their views were on this wider discussion. Patients were also asked if they had received any health promotion and lifestyle advice or had been referred or signposted to other services. Their views on any referrals or advice offered were sought. Findings Study D aimed to gather nurse and patient views on the use of the PCAM tool in their LTC reviews. Nurse participants were asked about their experience of learning how to use the PCAM tool and integrating it into their consultations. Patient participants were asked about their experience of their last review. Patient perception of the Patient Centred Assessment Method Not all patient participants in this sample noticed any overtly discernible difference in their annual review post PCAM implementation. However, some patients did report being asked more questions or finding out more about their health condition. Given that the PCAM tool is not a survey, or something administered to patients, it was not necessarily expected that the patients would notice the presence of the PCAM itself; however, patients did describe talking with their nurse about their lives and their broader concerns during reviews, and described welcoming these conversations with their nurse. Participants also described feeling listened to and feeling that the nurse was trying to address the concerns raised by the patient: And I do remember that the time before I was quite upset because it was.

In malnourished patients cheap 100 mg prometrium free shipping, nutritional support should be initiated within 72 h discount 200 mg prometrium free shipping. Delayed gastric emptying is common in critically ill patients on sedative medications but often responds to promotility agents such as domperidone, and metoclopramide (Gomes 2010). Parenteral nutrition is an alternative to enteral nutrition in patients with severe gastrointestinal pathology. When patients improve the gastrostomy is easy to close. It is better to try to provide adequate and safe nutrition by mouth in an alert patient before placing a feeding tube. Nasogastric tubes have been used temporarily for feeding but they are uncomfortable, cause pressure necrosis of the nares when used chronically, and allow aspiration, so it should not be used for long. In ambulatory patients with severe dysphagia, cervical esophagostomy may be useful, as a patient can insert the tube during feedings and the ostium can be covered with a dressing at other times. Patients with severe weakness or ataxia of the upper extremities are usually unable to feed themselves, so percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy is the method of choice (Wanklyn 1995). Tube 86 | Critical Care in Neurology feeding needs high caloric diet (1200 to 2400 Kcal/day) for active patients, and liquid foods are usually concentrated to deliver 1 Kcal/ml. To avoid clogging of the tube, each feeding is followed with water. Tube feeding is best started with about one half the total desired calories diluted in water, with gradual increase in concentration and calories, to avoid diarrhea and malabsorption, reaching a maximum volume of about 200 ml (150 ml food and 50 ml of water). If aspiration of saliva and nasal secretions is a problem, a cuffed endotracheal tube is necessary and the use of tricyclic antidepressants or anticholinergic drugs (if there is no absolute contraindication for its use) might reduce salivation and prevent drooling (Fjærtoft 2011). Adequate nutritional feeding, trace elements, minerals and vitamins constitute the most important basic brain supplements. Respiratory Management in Neurocritical Care Most patients who are started on ventilatory support receive synchronized intermittent mandatory ventilation (SIMV), because this ensures user-specified backup minute ventilation in the event that the patient fails to initiate respiratory efforts. Once the intubated patient has been stabilized with respect to oxygenation, definitive therapy for the underlying process responsible for respiratory failure is formulated and initiated. As improvement in respiratory function is noted, the first priorities are to reduce PEEP and supplemental O2 and once a patient can achieve adequate arterial saturation with an FIO2 ≤0. Patients previously on full ventilator support should be switched to a ventilator mode that allows for weaning, such as SIMV, PSV (pressure support ventilation), or SIMV combined with PSV. Ventilator therapy can then be gradually removed while patients whose condition continues to General Neurological Treatment Strategies | 87 deteriorate after ventilator support is initiated may require increased O2, PEEP, and alternative modes of ventilation such as IRV or OLV (Borel 2000). Patients who are started on mechanical ventilation usually require some form of sedation and analgesia to maintain an acceptable level of comfort. Often, this regimen consists of a combination of a benzodiazepine and opiate administered intravenously. Medications commonly used for this purpose include lorazepam, midazolam, diazepam, morphine, and fentanyl. Immobilized patients in the intensive care unit on mechanical ventilatory support are at increased risk for deep venous thrombosis; accepted practice consists of administering prophylaxis in the form of subcutaneous heparin and/or pneumatic compression boots. Fractionated low-molecular- weight heparin has also been used for this purpose; it appears to be equally effective and is associated with a decreased incidence of heparin-associated thrombocytopenia (Pelosi 2011). Prophylaxis against diffuse gastrointestinal mucosal injury is indicated for patients who have suffered a neurologic insult, so histamine receptor antagonists (H2 receptor antagonists), proton pump inhibitors, and cytoprotective agents such as Carafate have all been used for this purpose and appear to be effective. Recent data suggest that Carafate use is associated with a reduction in the incidence of nosocomial pneumonias, since it does not cause changes in stomach PH and is less likely to permit colonization of the gastrointestinal tract by nosocomial organisms at neutral PH. Endotracheal intubation and positive-pressure mechanical ventilation have direct and indirect effects on several organ systems, including the lung and upper airways, the cardiovascular system, and the gastrointestinal system. Pulmonary complications include barotraumas, nosocomial pneumonia, oxygen toxicity, tracheal stenosis, and deconditioning of respiratory muscles (Hurford 2002). Upper airway function must be intact for a patient to remain extubated but is difficult to assess in the intubated patient. Therefore, if a patient can breathe on his own, through an 88 | Critical Care in Neurology endotracheal tube, but develops stridor or recurrent aspiration once the tube is removed, upper airway dysfunction or an abnormal swallowing mechanism should be suspected, and plans for achieving a stable airway be developed.
