PURPOSE Sleep deprivation may be particularly detrimental to intensive care unit (ICU) patients. Polysomnography has demonstrated abnormal sleep in medical and surgical ICU populations. Both environmental factors and circadian disruption have been implicated. We hypothesized that patients in a neurologic ICU would demonstrate similar sleep disturbances and that a combination of sleep-promoting interventions would increase sleep time. METHODS Twelve patients were enrolled in this pilot… CONTINUE READING
