. The respiratory rate of the VCO group normalized significantly earlier than the control group. In addition, after 72 hours, more patients in the control group were still noted to have crackles compared with the VCO group. VCO supplementation also resulted in a quicker time to normalize temperature and oxygen saturation, and a shorter time of hospitalization, than in the group receiving IV ampicillin alone.

ICU NURSING TASKS INTERRUPTED BY ALARMS, OTHER NURSES
(Wednesday, October 29, 1:00 PM EST)

In the ICU, nursing task interruptions are most often caused by device alarms or other nurses and can lead to nurses switching their focus or multitasking. Researchers from the University of Utah analyzed nursing task interruptions, other error producing conditions, and actual or potential medical device related harm, as documented in 59 observation sessions totaling more than 140 hours. Direct care, indirect care, and medical device use constituted 15.3 percent, 70.3 percent, and 14.4 percent of the nurses' task hours, respectively. Overall, 7,382 nursing tasks were observed, of which 886 (12 percent) were interrupted. The two most frequent causes of interruption were device alarms (35 percent) and other nurses (17 percent); physicians caused 10 percent of interruptions. When interrupted, the nurses switched focus to the interrupting task (30 percent) or multitasked (31 percent), most commonly in response to a device alarm. They did not immediately attend to a majority of device alarms.
