Subtle differences in presentation make skin injury classification difficult for clinicians. This can be particularly challenging in patients with dark skin tones. This article will cover the differentiation of skin injuries, such as pressure injury versus incontinence-associated dermatitis.

Determining the level of evidence: Experimental research appraisal

Glasofer, Amy; Townsend, Ann B.

Nursing2019 Critical Care. 14(6):22-25, November 2019.

The first installment in this series provides a basic understanding of research design to appraise the level of evidence of a source. This article reviews appraisal of randomized controlled trials and quasi-experimental research.

Building a continuous renal replacement therapy program in a community hospital

Maxwell, Thomas

Nursing2019 Critical Care. 14(6):6-12, November 2019.

Continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) is a high-risk therapy used to treat acute kidney injury. Community hospitals lack the patient volume to adequately develop staff CRRT competency. This article will cover lessons learned developing a CRRT program at a small community hospital with low patient census requiring CRRT.

Minimal change disease: A case report

Mitchell-Brown, Fay M.; Veisze, Tiernan

Nursing2019 Critical Care. 14(6):14-20, November 2019.

Although minimal change disease (MCD) is a major cause of nephrotic syndrome in children, it is less common in adults. It develops from damage to the glomeruli with a loss of large amounts of protein in the urine. Early recognition and treatment is key to a positive patient outcome. This article describes the diagnosis, treatment, and nursing care of an adult with MCD.
