May 2019 Vol. 14 No. 5

This issue includes two articles with so much information that we had to break them into two parts. The first is a feature titled “Nursing considerations for procedural sedation and analgesia.” In Part 1, the author focuses on patient assessment, red flags, and pharmacologic agents. Part 2, which will be published in June, will focus on airway management, procedural monitoring, and postsedation care. The infection prevention article (Revisiting CLABSI prevention strategies) in this issue also is presented in two parts. Part 1 looks at indications and insertions; part 2 will discuss maintenance and what to do when a CLABSI occurs.

Other articles in this issue cover topics ranging from osteoarthritis (the CNE) and COPD to strategic thinking skills, social media etiquette, and research sample size. You’ll also want to read the articles in our focus sections: Nursing excellence and Safety options.

Pressure Injury Supplement

Special Report Sponsored by Dabir

Throughout acute care—from the emergency department to the operating room and the critical-care unit—protecting patients’ skin from pressure injuries (PIs) can sometimes be low on the priority list when faced with immediate life-threatening situations. However, PIs can become life-threatening and most are avoidable when excellent assessment, physical care, multidisciplinary teamwork, and technology are used to ensure adequate perfusion. In this special supplement to American Nurse Today, you’ll find best practices related to specific acute-care environments and insight into clinical solutions such as support surfaces, technology, and collaborative care. You’ll also want to read the case studies from nurses who have developed and implemented PI prevention strategies in their acute-care settings.
