Sedative therapy is a common intervention for patients receiving ventilatory support wherein ICU nurses are given wide discretion in managing these medications. However, little is known about nurses values and beliefs related to sedative therapy. The purpose of this study was to discover what factors influence nurses sedation practices of ventilated patients. Focus group methods were employed to obtain nurses attitudes and ideas about sedation. A total of 34 nurses with a minimum of one year ICU experience were recruited from 3 ICU's in the urban Midwest. Nurses participated in 1 of 5 group interviews. A topic guide was used by the moderator; an assistant moderator took field notes. Verbatim text was analyzed independently by 2 investigators using a deductive framework with content analysis; categories and themes were extracted from the data. Two experienced nurses and a subset of participants verified the category summaries and interpretations. Results include that family members and demands for efficient care delivery affect sedation practices. Patient comfort and injury prevention are the main sedation indicators. Communication amongst physicians and nurses is lacking related to goals of sedative therapy. In conclusion, social, personal, and professional factors were found to influence sedative therapy practices in this sample.
