epidemiology icu acquired delirium weakness
University of Nebraska Medical CenterEpidemiology ICU-Acquired Delirium & Weakness
  • Delirium
    • 20-50% non-MV ICU
    • 81-83% MV ICU
    • 50-80% S/T/B ICU
  • ICU Acquired Weakness (AW)
    • 25-50% of all patients who receive MV for 4-7 day
    • 50-75% sepsis patients
outcomes associated with delirum
University of Nebraska Medical CenterOUTCOMES ASSOCIATED WITH DELIRUM
  • 10-fold risk of in-hospital death
      • Each additional day of delirium  risk of dying 10%
  • Increased risk of:
      • Prolonged ICU & hospital LOS
      • Nosocomial complications
      • Greater use of continuous sedation & physical restraints
      • Increased self-removal of catheters & ETTs
outcomes associated with delirium
University of Nebraska Medical CenterOUTCOMES ASSOCIATED WITH DELIRIUM
  • Poor functional recovery & loss of independence
  • Risk of death up to 2 years following discharge
  • Post-acute care nursing-home placement
  • Long-term cognitive impairment
  • Total 1-year health-care costs of delirium $38 billion to $152 billion nationally
      • Hip fracture-$7, falls $19 billion, diabetes $91 billion, CV disease $257 billion
outcomes associated with icu aw
University of Nebraska Medical CenterOUTCOMES ASSOCIATED WITH ICU-AW
  • 80-95% of patients with ICU-AW have neuromuscular abnormalities 2-5 YEARS after discharge
  • 70% of MV patients have difficulty with ADLs 1 year after discharge
icu outcomes
University of Nebraska Medical CenterICU OUTCOMES
  • 30-80% of ALL patients have cognitive impairment after ICU discharge
      • Some improve within 1 year, but many others NEVER return to baseline level
  • 10-50% of ICU survivors experience PTSD, depression, anxiety, & sleep disorders
      • Problems may persist years after discharge
  • 50% of ALL ICU survivors require caregiver assistance 1 year after discharge
who is responsible for improving outcomes
University of Nebraska Medical CenterWHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR IMPROVING OUTCOMES?

why is delirium so confusing
University of Nebraska Medical CenterWHY IS DELIRIUM SO CONFUSING?

Acute Confusion

Sun-downing

ICU psychosis

Altered mental status

Cerebral insufficiency

Toxic or metabolic encephalopathy

Organic brain syndrome

Dementia

Acute brain dysfunction

“Just ain’t right”

delirium monitoring management
Delirium Monitoring & Management
  • Routine Sedation & Delirium Assessment Using Standardized, Validated Assessment Tools
    • RN administers & records RASS results q2h
    • Team sets “target” RASS score for the patient to be maintained at for the following 24 hours
    • RN administers & records results of the CAM-ICU q8h & whenever a patient experiences a change in mental status
delirium monitoring management1

Brain Road Map

Delirium Monitoring & Management

Each day during interdisciplinary rounds, the RN will:

State the “TARGET” RASS score

State the patient’s ACTUAL RASS score

State the CAM-ICU status

State the sedative/analgesic medications the patient is currently receiving

Each day during interdisciplinary rounds, the team will use the acronym “THINK” if a patient is CAM positive (delirious)

The interdisciplinary team will employ the following non-pharmacologic interventions when treating a delirious patient:

Eliminate or minimize risk factors

Provide a therapeutic environment

1. Where is the patient going?

Target RASS

2. Where is the patient now?

Current RASS

Current CAM-ICU

3. How did they get there?

Drugs

nonpharmacologic approaches to preventing treating delirium
University of Nebraska Medical CenterNONPHARMACOLOGIC APPROACHES TO PREVENTING & TREATING DELIRIUM
  • USE MEDICATIONS ONLY IF ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Give “PEACE” a chance
    • Physiologic
    • Environmental
    • ADLs/Sleep
    • Communication
    • Education
early mobility safety screen rn driven

N – Neurologic

    • Patient response to verbal stimulation (i.e. RASS > -3)
    • Activity not started in comatose patients (RASS -4 or -5)
  • R – Respiratory
    • FIO2<0.6
    • PEEP<10 cm H2O
  • C – Circulatory
    • No increase dose of any vasopressor infusion for at least 2 hours
    • No evidence of active myocardial ischemia
    • No arrthymia requiring the administration of a new antiarrythmic agent
    • Not receiving therapies that restrict mobility
      • ECMO, Open-abdomen, ICP monitoring/drainage, Femoral arterial line
Early Mobility-Safety Screen-RN Driven
  • If Early Mobility Safety Screen criteria are MET :
    • -Conclude it is SAFE to begin early mobility protocol
  • If Early Mobility Safety Screen criteria are NOTMET :
    • Conclude it is NOT SAFEto begin early mobility protocol
    • Continue patients regimen & reassess in 24 hours
    • Discuss the patient’s condition during interdisciplinary rounds
  • Any other justification for not implementing the protocol must be written specifically by a licensed prescriber

abcde summary points
University of Nebraska Medical CenterABCDE SUMMARY POINTS
  • Cognitive & functional decline in the ICU must change from being viewed as “part of the inevitable consequences of critical illness” to a modifiable condition.
  • Improvement requires evolution in critical care team roles.
  • Teams must shift from multidisciplinary to interdisciplinary care.
abcde summary points1
University of Nebraska Medical CenterABCDE SUMMARY POINTS
  • ABCDE should become the default practice.
  • Patients will wake up, breath, & exercise if we allow them.
  • Checklists and daily goals should be used; not elegant, but effective.
  • Incorporate process & outcomes monitoring.
