Abstract Share this page

This article focuses on the potentially dichotomous relationship of caring for critically ill patients in a high technology environment. Does technology enhance or hinder the quality of patient care delivered by nurses in such an environment? The discussion within this article is initially at a societal level before focusing at an interpersonal level within a specific care setting. The author argues for finding a balance between high technology and humanity within the intensive care environment by highlighting the psychological impact that this may have on patients, relatives and nurses. Guidance as to how a balance may be achieved is also provided. Technology is an explicit theme within the text, whilst the concept of power that technology holds is discussed in an implicit manner.
