Abstract [en]

Intensive care unit, ICU, is considered to be one the most complicated area for care of critically ill patients. The rooms in ICU are small and narrow and the high tech environment believes to affect patients and next-of-kin wellbeing. Previous research reveals that a large number of patients suffer from unreal experiences, often very traumatic during their stay in ICU. Unpleasant memories and risk of developing post traumatic stress after discharge from ICU is rather common. In this context next-of-kin play an important and crucial role for supporting the patient though the process of illness and recovery. Next-of-kin in ICU are considered to be a lifeline for patients. Furthermore, the design and interiors of ICU affect the interplay between the patient and the next-of-kin.
