OBJECTIVES/GOALS: The objectives of this study are to: 1) Examine the feasibility of using concurrent multi-methodology to quantify the affective, decisional, physical symptom domains of Family Intensive Care Unit Syndrome. 2) Describe the associations between the Family Intensive Care Unit Syndrome symptom domains (affective, decisional, physical). METHODS/STUDY POPULATION: Using a repeated-measures, correlational design, we recruited surrogate decision makers of incapacitated, mechanically

We collected baseline data (T1) after obtaining informed consent and follow-up data three (T2) and seven (T3) days post-baseline. We used self-report instruments, behavioral tasks, and accelerometry to measure affective (anxiety & depression), decisional (working memory ability & decision fatigue), and physical (sleep quality & sleep disturbance), symptom domains. For objective 1, we computed completion percentages of each time-point and overall compliance with wearing the accelerometer device. For objective 2, we inspected Spearman correlations. RESULTS/ANTICIPATED RESULTS: We recruited and collected baseline data (T1) for 33 participants. Nineteen participants completed the T2 interview and twenty participants completed T3. Eight participants wore the accelerometer device for less than 72 hours and 15 wore the accelerometer for the full study period. At baseline, the physical symptoms (sleep quality & disturbance) were strongly correlated with the affective (anxiety & depression) symptoms, all of which were moderately correlated with one decisional symptom (decision fatigue). One cognitive symptom (working memory dysfunction), was weakly associated with the affective and physical symptom domains, and moderately correlated with the other cognitive symptom (decision fatigue) These associative trends were maintained within and between each time point. DISCUSSION/SIGNIFICANCE: This study identifies potential opportunities for examining the various symptom domains of Family Intensive Care Unit Syndrome. The associations between the domains are consistent with the extant literature, and highlights the need for supportive interventions that mitigate affective and physical symptoms that can compromise decision-making.
