A Retrospective Look at Patient, Procedural, and Follow-up Characteristics Associated With WATCHMAN Implantation
This study used a retrospective design to review data previously collected and entered into the National Cardiovascular Data Registry database.RESULTS: During a 2-year period, 41 patients underwent the WATCHMAN procedure at our facility.

Implementation and Routinization of the ABCDE Bundle: A Mixed Methods Evaluation
This study examined the effect of 2 bundle implementation strategies on patient care in 8 adult intensive care units.

A total of 84 nurses, physicians, and therapists participated in interviews and a survey to assess bundle implementation.RESULTS: Respondents indicated bundle use resulted in "best care" through care standardization and coordination and improved patient outcomes. Intensive care units in both inter...
