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...

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, mechanically ventilated patients require a substantial amount of energy to meet their basic metabolic demands, as well as for their recovery, spontaneous breathing, gaining of strength, and weaning from the ventilator. It is important for patients to use their energy as efficient as possible at all stages of the disease and...

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...

Patients who are admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) are extremely ill and at high risk of organ failure and death. Being admitted to the ICU is known to cause long lasting physical, cognitive, and physiological symptoms, which is called Post-Intensive Care syndrome (PICS). To provide better management of PICS, early recognition and...

Introduction: In intensive care units (ICU), the most significant life support technology for patients with acute respiratory failure is mechanical ventilation. A mismatch between ventilatory support and patient demand is referred to as patient-ventilator asynchrony (PVA), and it is associated with a series of adverse...

Cardiothoracic surgery is a common treatment for cardiovascular diseases. Patients are admitted to the ICU after cardiothoracic surgery for continuous monitoring to prevent or treat postoperative complications as much and as soon as possible. One of these complications is the development of circulatory shock. It is likely caused by one or a...

Background: Arterial pressure measurements are important to monitor vital function in neonates, and values are known to be dependent of gestational and postnatal age. Current reference ranges for mean arterial pressure in neonates have been derived from small samples and combined data of noninvasive and invasive measurements. We aimed to...

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...

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...

The healthcare sector uses a lot of on single use medical products, causing large amounts of CO₂ emissions and excessive amounts of waste. This project contributes to a circular Intensive Care Unit (ICU) by investigating the barriers and possible solutions for a transition from single use video laryngoscopes (VL) to (partly) reusable ones, in...

<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...
