Intensive Care Bites

An ESICM Talk powered by the N&AHP Committee


The communication between families of critically ill patients who manifest prolonged disturbances in the consciousness such as patients under sedation, in a coma, or delirium, and the caregivers became very difficult during the stay of the patient in the ICU.

On the other side, the memories of the patients are distressing and confusing and make the ICU experience for this patient very unpleasant.

To overcome these difficulties and to bridge the communication, written diaries by nurses and families for and to the patients are recommended during the ICU stay.

A more detailed description of ICU diaries you will learn from the guests in our next podcast – the first one of 2024 from the ESICM N&AHP group.
