Historical Comparison Group
This group includes patients who were admitted to St. Paul's Hospital ICU (Vancouver BC, Canada) from September 2014 to September 2015, and had a small bore feeding tube in place at some point during their ICU admission, and were matched to key variables to the prospective observational treated group.
Prospective Observational Treated Group
This group includes all patients who were admitted to St. Paul's Hospital ICU from Nov. 2017 to Dec. 2018, and nasal bridle securement device for small bore feeding tubes at some point during their ICU admission. The clinical indicators for a nasal bridle securement device outlined in our nursing practice standards include one or more of the following: recurrent nasoenteric tube dislodgement; confused and/or agitated patients; fluoroscopically or endoscopically placed nasoenteric tube; history of difficult tube placement; facial burn victims with nasoenteric tube; and/or oily skin causing decreased adhesion of traditional securement.
Device: Nasal bridle securement device for small bore feeding tubes
A Nasal bridle securement device is an alternative method to securing small bore feeding tubes which are most commonly secured with adhesive tape to the nose. A nasal bridle securement device instead secures the feeding tube to a cloth ribbon that is inserted in one nostril, over then nasal bridle and out the other nostril.
Other Name: AMTBridle TM: Nasal Tube Retaining System
- Incidence and characteristics of all types of adverse events [ Time Frame: During the ICU admission (up to 4 weeks) ]Describe the prevalence and characteristics of all types of adverse events associated with use of the Nasal Bridle Securement device, including with its insertion, use and removal.
- Rate of inadvertent dislodgement of a small bore feeding tube while in the ICU [ Time Frame: During the ICU admission (up to 4 weeks) ]the rate of inadvertent dislodgement is defined as the number of inadvertent tube per total ICU days with a small bore feeding tube (i.e., number of dislodgment/ICU days with small bore feeding tube)
- Proportion of total daily caloric goal delivered. [ Time Frame: Measured daily for the duration of the ICU admission (up to 4 weeks) ]This is the proportion of total daily caloric goal that was actually received by the participant (i.e., 100 x actual caloric intake/goal caloric intake). Calories are measured in kilocalories (kcal)
