8 Amazing Facts-Did You Know This About Halloween?

Halloween’s beginnings date back to the ancient festival of Samhain. The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago in what is now known as Ireland, the United Kingdom and northern France, celebrated their new year on November 1. It marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of the winter. They believed that on the night before the New Year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. 

Halloween Greetings

On the night of October 31, they celebrated Samhain, when they believed that ghosts and spirits returned to earth. In addition to causing trouble and damaging crops, it was thought that the presence of the otherworldly spirits made it easier for the Druids to make predictions about the future.

To commemorate the event, Druids built huge sacred bonfires, where the people gathered to burn crops and animals as sacrifices to the Celtic deities. During the celebration, costumes were worn, usually made up of animal heads and skins. When the celebration was over, they re-lit their hearth fires, which they had extinguished earlier that evening, from the sacred bonfire to help protect them during the coming winter.

In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a day to honour all saints and martyrs; known as All Saints’ Day and incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. The evening before was known as All Hallows’ Eve and later Halloween. Over time, Halloween evolved into the event characterised by child-friendly activities like trick-or-treating. http://www.history.com/topics/halloween/history-of-halloween

 Some fun facts about Halloween:

  1. The jack-o’-lantern comes from an old Irish folklore about a man named Stingy Jack. According to folklore, Stingy Jack was out having a drink with the Devil when Jack convinced him to turn himself into a coin so he could for pay for the drinks. Jack then put the Devil, shaped like a coin, into his pocket, which also contained a silver cross, which kept the Devil from transforming back. Jack promised to free the Devil as long as the Devil wouldn’t bother him for a year, and if he died, the Devil could never claim his soul. Later, Jack tricked the Devil again, getting him to pick a piece of fruit out of a tree and then carving a cross into the bark when the Devil was in the branches. This bought Jack another 10 years of devil-free living. When Jack finally died, God decided he wasn’t fit for heaven, but the Devil had promised never to claim his soul for hell. So, Jack was sent off to roam Earth with only a burning coal for light. He put the coal into a turnip as a lantern, and Stingy Jack became ”Jack of the Lantern” or “Jack o’ Lantern.” Based on this myth, the Irish carved scary faces into turnips, beets and potatoes to scare away Stingy Jack or any other spirits of the night. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/10/24/halloween-weird-facts_n_5948456.html
  2. The first Jack O’Lanterns were actually made from turnips.
  3. Halloween is the second highest grossing commercial holiday after Christmas in America.
  4. An intense and persistent fear of Halloween is called Samhnainophobia
  5. Black and orange are typically associated with Halloween. Orange is a symbol of strength and endurance and, along with brown and gold, stands for the harvest and autumn. Black is typically a symbol of death and darkness and acts as a reminder that Halloween once was a festival that marked the boundaries between life and death.
  6. Halloween has variously been called All Hallows’ Eve, Witches Night, Lamswool, Snap-Apple Night, Samhain, and Summer’s End.
  7. During the pre-Halloween celebration of Samhain, bonfires were lit to ensure the sun would return after the long, hard winter. Often Druid priests would throw the bones of cattle into the flames and, hence, “bone fire” became “bonfire.”
  8. Dressing up as ghouls and other spooks originated from the ancient Celtic tradition of townspeople disguising themselves as demons and spirits. They believed that disguising themselves this way would allow them to escape the notice of the real spirits wandering the streets during Samhain.

In the Spotlight-Who Are Critical Care Nurses?

First and foremost, a critical care nurse is the patients advocate. The AACN (The American Association of Critical Care Nurses) defines advocacy as “respecting and supporting the basic values, rights and beliefs of the critically ill patient.” Critical care nurses practice in settings where patients require complex assessment,high-intensity therapies, interventions, and continuous nursing vigilance. Critical care nurses rely upon a specialised body of knowledge, skills, and experience to provide care to patients,families and create environments that are healing, humane and caring. http://www.aacn.org/wd/publishing/content/pressroom/aboutcriticalcarenursing.pcms?menu

Critical care nurses are some of the most in demand nurses in this field.  The long hours and stressful work environments often make it extremely challenging both physically and emotionally. It can be emotionally draining and heartrending. Especially, when faced with the harsh reality that you can and will lose patients in spite of your best efforts. It requires a special type of person to be a successful critical care nursehttp://nursewithoutborders.org/becoming-a-critical-care-nurse/

Quick History Of Critical Care

ICU 5a

Although there have always been very ill and severely injured patients, the concept of critical care is relatively modern. As advances have been made in medicine and technology, patient care has become more complex. To provide appropriate care, nurses needed specialised knowledge and skills and the care delivery mechanisms needed to evolve to support the patients’ needs for continuous monitoring and treatment. http://nursewithoutborders.org/becoming-a-critical-care-nurse/

The ICU’s roots can be traced back to the Monitoring Unit of critical patients through nurse Florence Nightingale. 

The Crimean War began in 1853 when Britain, France, and the Ottoman Empire (Turkey) declared war on Russia. Nightingale’s work, and the school, paved the way for intensive care medicine.

Bjørn Ibsen graduated in 1940 from medical school at the University of Copenhagen and trained in anesthesiology from 1949 to 1950 at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston. He became involved in the 1952 poliomyelitis outbreak in Denmark, where 2722 patients developed the illness in a 6-month period, with 316 suffering respiratory or airway paralysis. Treatment involved the use of the few negative pressure respirators available, but these devices, while helpful, were limited and did not protect against aspiration of secretions. Ibsen changed management directly, instituting protracted positive pressure ventilation by means of intubation into the trachea, and enlisting 200 medical students to manually pump oxygen and air into the patients’ lungs. At this time Carl-Gunnar Engström had developed one of the first positive pressure volume controlled ventilators, which eventually replaced the medical students. In this fashion, mortality declined from 90% to around 25%. 

Patients were managed in three special 35-bed areas, which aided charting and other management. In 1953, Ibsen set up what became the world’s first Medical/Surgical ICU in a converted student nurse classroom in Kommunehospitalet (The Municipal Hospital) in Copenhagen and provided one of the first accounts of the management of tetanus with muscle relaxants and controlled ventilation. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intensive_care_medicine

In 1955, Dartmouth surgeon William Mosenthal, M.D., established the first intensive-care unit in in America before then, acute and non-acute patients would be sprinkled randomly through a hospital’s wardshttp://dartmed.dartmouth.edu/spring04/html/vs_mosenthal.shtml
