Nursing Care
2019 (English)In: Neurointensive Care / [ed] Hemanshu Prabhakar, New Deli: Oxford University Press, 2019, 1, p. 543-553Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Neurointensive care patients are vulnerable, in a stressful situation and in the mercy of the personnel. Therefore all care has to be performed with integrity. All nursing interventions are performed with the aim to prevent complications and to offer comfort. On the other hand, nursing interventions can cause increased intracranial pressure in a patient with exhausted intracranial adaptive capacity. Thus, the balance between performing nursing interventions to prevent possible future secondary insults and avoiding secondary insults directly related to nursing interventions is essential to achieve best possible outcome.  

This chapter covers, hygienic interventions, skin care management, surgery wound management, airways, maintenance of therapeutic milieu and care of next-of-kin.
