Introduction<br/>Patient-ventilator asynchrony (PVA) poses a significant challenge in the management of mechanically ventilated patients, contributing to adverse clinical outcomes. Current methods of detecting PVA rely on visual assessment by clinicians, leading to subjectivity and inconsistency. Therefore, there is a need for automated...

Introduction<br/>Approximately 9 in 1000 children are born with congenital heart disease (CHD), of whom a quarter are classified as critical CHD (CCHD) and require an intervention within their first year. Monitoring these patients in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) is crucial, yet with increasing amounts of data, detecting subtle...

Many patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) depend on mechanical ventilation due to conditions such as severe lung disease, traumatic brain injury, or postoperative coma. While mechanical ventilation is a potentially life-saving intervention, it also has harmful side effects. Especially in patients with lung disease, such as the acute...

Study objectives: Conventional sleep scoring is based on the scoring criteria of the American Association of Sleep Medicine (AASM) but may not be suited to describe sleep in critically ill children admitted to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). In this study, an anomaly detection model using Gaussian Models trained on sleep stages in data...

Background: Compliance with the recommended 30 s drying time of alcohol-based hand rub (ABHR) is often suboptimal. To increase hand hygiene compliance at a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), we installed an Incubator Traffic Light (ITL) system which shows ‘green light’ to open incubator doors after the recommended drying time. Aim: To...

This project aims to reduce the environmental impact of the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Erasmus Medical Center (EMC). Systemic design research was executed to map the current waste flow created by the ICU. Literature review, interviews and observations were performed to gather information about the healthcare protocols, hospital procurement...

This research and design project is part of the Green ICU initiative and focused on reducing the environmental impact of gloves at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Erasmus Medical Center (EMC). At the ICU of the EMC around 108 gloves are used per patient per day; to protect the user (healthcare staff) from infections. The high frequency of...

Critically ill patients in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) are often comatose and thoroughly monitored. Neurological complications occur in up to 20% of these patients. Therefore, monitoring of the brain, which can be performed using electroencephalography (EEG), has the potential to significantly impact the outcomes of patients at the ICU....

Introduction: Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a rare developmental defect of the diaphragm characterised by herniation of abdominal organs into the thoracic cavity during prenatal development. This herniation is usually accompanied by pulmonary hypertension (PH) and cardiac dysfunction (CD). Although several parameters are known to...

Epilepsy has been reported in 10-40% of children in the paediatric intensive care unit (PICU). Amplitude-integrated electroencephalography (aEEG), often used as neuromonitoring in the PICU, has some limitations and as a result, caretakers in the PICU may find it challenging to interpret aEEG. This may lead to uncertainty during diagnosis and...

In the intensive care unit (ICU), infection-related mortality is high. Although adequate antibiotic treatment is essential in infections, beta-lactam target non-attainment occurs in up to 45% of ICU patients, which is associated with a lower likelihood of clinical success. To optimize antibiotic treatment, we aimed to develop beta-lactam target...

There is an increased awareness of how the quality of the acoustic environment impacts the lives of human beings. Several studies have shown that sound pollution has adverse effects on many populations, from infants to adults, in different environments and workplaces. Hospitals are susceptible environments that require special attention since...

<b>Introduction</b> Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of childhood morbidity, disability and mortality worldwide. In the treatment of TBI, neuromonitoring is essential to prevent secondary neurological damage. However, the use of neuromonitoring and specifically therapeutic targets is currently limited evidence-based.<br/><b...

The intensive care unit (ICU) is a dehumanizing technical environment causing complications that are all captured in the term post-intensive-care syndrome (PICS). The patient’s well-being could be improved by moving away from this hostile environment toward more patient-centred care. Therefore this report explores how to improve the daily ICU...

Inside the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), exposure to loud sounds such as acoustic medical alarms can have adverse effects on neonates, parents, and medical staff. With the aim of having an accurate overview of which and how often acoustic medical alarms occur, this paper presents a simple signal processing-based approach for detecting...

Purpose: The healthcare sector is responsible for 6–7% of CO<sub>2</sub> emissions. The intensive care unit (ICU) contributes to these CO<sub>2</sub> emissions and a shift from a linear system to a circular system is needed. The aim of our research was to perform a material flow analysis (MFA) in an academic ICU. Secondary aims were to obtain...

A soundscape is the acoustic environment that is constantly surrounding us. Soundscapes in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) might adversely affect neonates, their families, and healthcare providers. In this unit, the number of alarms and nuisance is very high, and studies show that it negatively affects both the well-being of patients and...
