    ABSTRACT: Although current nursing literature is overflowing with information related to the history of nursing in general, and even pediatric nursing, very little is published about PICU nursing. The evolution of pediatric critical care nursing is presented based on a historical context, the current state, and future projections. More specifically, this treatise focuses on the environment, the patient and family, and of course, the PICU nurse. Concluding remarks provide an insight into how health care reforms and how the use of clinical information technology will affect the role of the pediatric critical care nurse in the future.

    ABSTRACT: Meningococcemia is a rare but devastating disease that affects primarily the pediatric population. The virulence of Neisseria meningitidis is 100 times that of other gram-negative organisms, making prompt recognition and treatment essential to prevent significant morbidity and mortality. Management of these patients in the pediatric intensive care unit is a challenge and requires skilled clinicians, high level technology, and novel therapies. Research into more effective treatment for meningococcemia continues in hopes of improving mortality and decreasing morbidity associated with this disease; however, thus far, prompt recognition of the signs and symptoms and aggressive treatment remain the mainstay of survival.

    ABSTRACT: Over the last 50 years, healthcare has undergone countless changes. Some of the important changes in recent years have been budget cuts, decreased resident work hours, and increased patient acuity. The need for additional clinical expertise at the bedside has resulted in nurse practitioners becoming an integral part of the healthcare delivery team. To date, little has been published regarding the role of the nurse practitioners in intensive care units. This article outlines how one pediatric hospital has successfully utilized nurse practitioners in the intensive care unit.
