Textbook of Post-ICU Medicine

Surviving critical illness is not always the happy ending that we imagine for patients. Intensive care unit (ICU) teams have traditionally focused on short term goals such as stabilizing or reversing organ system dysfunction, with little understanding of what became of patients once they left the ICU. However, research conducted in recent years has demonstrated that many ICU survivors can suffer from ill health and mental health issues for months or years to follow. The Textbook of Post-ICU Medicine: The Legacy of Critical Care identifies the long term outcomes of ICU and the steps that can be taken to improve patients' health and wellbeing. Describing the major clinical syndromes affecting ICU survivors, the book delineates established or postulated biological mechanisms of the post-acute recovery process, and discusses strategies for treatment and rehabilitation to promote recovery in the ICU and in the long term. Many ICU survivors suffer from a range of long-lasting physical and psychological issues such as end stage renal disease, congestive heart failure, cognitive impairment, neuromuscular weakness, and depression or anxiety, which affect their overall quality of life and ability to lead productive lives. This book discusses the science of the recovery process and the innovative treatment regimens which are helping ICU survivors regain function as they heal following trauma or disease. This lingering burden or 'legacy' of critical illness is now recognized as a major public health issue, with major efforts underway to understand how it can be prevented, mitigated, or treated. The chapters are written by an interdisciplinary panel of leading clinicians and researchers working in the field. The book serves as a unique reference for general practitioners, internists and nurses caring for long term ICU survivors as well as specialists in intensive care medicine, neurology, psychiatry, and rehabilitation medicine.

Social skills programmes for people with schizophrenia | Cochrane

Social skills programmes (SSP) use behavioural therapy and techniques for teaching individuals to communicate their emotions and requests. This means they are more likely to achieve their goals, meet their needs for relationships and for independent living as well as getting on with other people and socially adjusting. Social skills programmes involve 'model learning' (role playing) which was introduced to improve general 'molecular' skills (eye contact, fluency of speech, gestures) and 'molar' skills (managing negative emotions, giving positive feedback). Social skills programmes enhance social performance and reduce the distress and difficulty experienced by people with schizophrenia. Social skills programmes can be incorporated as part of a rehabilitation package for people with schizophrenia.

Motivational interviewing for improving recovery after stroke | Cochrane

Psychological problems such as depression and anxiety are common complications following stroke that can cause stroke survivors to lack the motivation to take part in activities of daily living or rehabilitation. Motivational interviewing is a counselling method that is designed to help people to change their behaviour through discovering and resolving their conflicts by a standardised communication skill. It provides a specific way for enhancing their expectations and beliefs of recovery following stroke. We wanted to know whether motivational interviewing was an effective treatment to improve activities of daily living after stroke.

Interventions for drug-using offenders with co-occurring mental illness | Cochrane

A number of policy directives are aimed at enabling people with drug problems to live healthy, crime-free lives. Drug-using offenders with co-occurring mental health problems represent a group who access treatment for a variety of different reasons. The complexity of the two problems makes the treatment and rehabilitation of this group particularly challenging.

Pharmacological interventions for drug-using offenders | Cochrane

Drug-using offenders by their nature represent a socially excluded group in which drug use is more prevalent than in the rest of the population. Pharmacological interventions play an important role in the rehabilitation of drug-using offenders. For this reason, it is important to investigate what we know works when pharmacological interventions are provided for offenders.

Critical Care

Burns are a prevalent and burdensome critical care problem. The priorities of specialized facilities focus on stabilizing the patient, preventing infection, and optimizing functional recovery. Research on burns has generated sustained interest over the past few decades, and several important advancements have resulted in more effective patient stabilization and decreased mortality, especially among young patients and those with burns of intermediate extent. However, for the intensivist, challenges often exist that complicate patient support and stabilization. Furthermore, burn wounds are complex and can present unique difficulties that require late intervention or life-long rehabilitation. In addition to improvements in patient stabilization and care, research in burn wound care has yielded advancements that will continue to improve functional recovery. This article reviews recent advancements in the care of burn patients with a focus on the pathophysiology and treatment of burn wounds.

Rehabilitation for people with dementia following a hip fracture operation | Cochrane

Hip fracture is an injury primarily of elderly people, usually caused by a fall. It can affect a person's ability to walk, perform activities of daily living and remain independent. Hip fracture is more common in people with dementia and they can find it more difficult to recover. This is because they are at greater risk of becoming more confused and developing additional complications such as pressure sores and chest infections after their operation. They may also find it more difficult to express their pain and discomfort.

Goal setting for adults receiving clinical rehabilitation for disability | Cochrane

Goal setting is considered a key part of clinical rehabilitation for adults with disability, such as in rehabilitation following brain injuries, heart or lung diseases, mental health illnesses, or for injuries or illnesses involving bones and muscles. Health professionals use goals to provide targets for themselves and their clients to work towards. In this review we summarise studies that have investigated what effect, if any, goal setting activities have on achieving good health outcomes following rehabilitation.

Self management for a man with asthma

A 35 year old man with a history of asthma attended the practice asthma clinic a few weeks after an acute exacerbation. He was a non-smoker who had asthma as a child but “grew out of” the more troublesome symptoms in his teens. He regards his asthma as well controlled, although his computer record suggested that he has had six short acting bronchodilator inhalers in the past year. He is more troubled by hay fever, which he manages with antihistamines that he buys from the pharmacy. He has a sedentary lifestyle so avoids exercise induced symptoms. He has a repeat prescription for an inhaled steroid (which he takes “when he needs it”) and carries a salbutamol inhaler with him in case he experiences any chest tightness. Despite annual invitations to the asthma clinic he last attended six years ago.

Comparison of different modes of cardiac rehabilitation | Cochrane

Cardiac rehabilitation aims to restore people with heart disease to health through a combination of exercise, education, and psychological support. Traditionally centre-based cardiac rehabilitation programmes (e.g. based within a hospital, gymnasium or a sport centre setting) are offered to individuals after cardiac events, while home-based cardiac rehabilitation programmes have been introduced in an attempt to widen access and participation. The aim of this review was to compare the effects of home-based cardiac rehabilitation programmes with supervised centre-based cardiac rehabilitation. The findings of this review show that home- and hospital-based interventions are similar in their benefits on coronary heart disease risk factors (e.g. smoking, lipids, and blood pressure), health-related quality of life, death, clinical events, and costs. There was some evidence to suggest that home-based interventions were associated with a higher level of adherence. The general lack of reporting of methods in the included trial reports made it difficult to assess their methodological quality and thereby judge their risk of bias. Further data are needed to confirm whether these short-term effects of home- and centre-based cardiac rehabilitation can be confirmed in the longer term.
