This work aimed to explore the effects of early comfort using analgesia, minimal sedatives, and maximal human care (eCASH) nursing modes on the self-care ability, physical function, psychological function, and cognitive function of critically ill patients in emergency intensive care units (EICUs). Sixty-eight patients who received treatment in the EICU of our hospital were selected as the research subjects and were randomly divided into an experimental group receiving the conventional nursing-based eCASH nursing mode and a control group receiving routine nursing. Outcomes were evaluated based on the medical outcomes of the 36-item Short-form Health Survey (SF-36). The results showed that after the nursing intervention, the physiological function (78.4±11.1) points, physiological function (67.3±9.2) points, body pain (75.7±9.6) points, and mental health (78.5±10.8) points of the experimental group were significantly higher than those of the control group (P<0.05). The overall health score of the experimental group (81.3±9.6) was significantly higher than that of the control group (72.4±9.2) (P<0.05). eCASH nursing can effectively improve patients’ physical function, physical function, physical pain, energy, social function, emotional function, and mental health, and the effect was better than that of conventional nursing, which is of clinical application and promotion value.
