Esimerkkejä 2022-2024 tutkimuskokonaisuuksista
Prediction of patients requiring intensive care admission compared to those needing hospitalization
Critical illness is associated with long-term sequelae regarding quality of life, functional outcome and socioeconomic status
Prospective data collected from the Northern Finland Birth Cohort is used to explore risk factors for hospitalization and intensive care admission during follow -up
Birth cohort includes comprehensive evaluation at the age of 31 performed in 1997
Hopitalizations and intensive care admissions followed until 2020 in this cohort
Results can be used to create models for population based assessment for resource planning and preventive measures to decrease the increasing need for intensive care services
Long-term physical, mental and social outcome of critically ill pediatric traumatic brain injury patients
Follow-up of a national cohort of children treated in intensive care due to traumatic brain injury
Aim is to clarify the long-term health-related quality of life (HRQL), psychological and psychiatric outcome, schooling difficulties, as well as family burden and socioeconomical situation
Data is needed to identify those surviving patients who are at greatest risk for health impairments, and to elucidate the factors affecting their recovery
Results can be used to plan rehabilitation, social and psychiatric interventions beyond the hospital doors to maximize the quality of life of young survivors and their families
Sepsis-induced cardiac dysfunction: long-term outcome, risk factors and pathophysiological mechanisms
Myocardial dysfunction in sepsis is known to be associated with significantly increased short and long-term mortality with no definitive therapeutic option available
Specific cause and mechanisms, diagnostics and classification of myocardial depression in sepsis is unclear
Aim is to study the long term cardiac complications related to sepsis, risk factors for cardiac impairment in sepsis and its pathophysiological mechanisms
Results can be used to improve early detection, treatment and need for cardiac long- term follow-up to improve outcome
Tactile kinesthetics combined to ABCDEF care bundle: effects on sleep quality, incidence of delirium and long-term functional outcome in critically ill patient
Liberation from intensive care through so called ABCDEF Bundle is used to shift the ICU culture from sedation and restraints to patients who are awake, cognitively engaged, and mobile with family members engaged as partners with the ICU team at the bedside.
With this comprehensive treatment bundle incidence of harmful iatrogenic aspects of care can be decreased (eg. delirium, post- intensive care syndrome) while length of stay and costs decrease
Hypothesis is that tactile kinesthetic treatment as part of ABCDEF bundle´s delirium prevention, early mobility and exercise features will improve sleep quality and have impact on delirium incidence as well as long-term functional outcome following hospital discharge
The results will help in treatment culture change and in planning resouces needed for implementation
