Abstractverify the relationship between risk factors and clinical datawith the nursing diagnosis of dry eye risk and ocular dryness in adult patients admittedto the intensive care unit (ICU). Method: it is a cross-sectional pilot study performed atthe ICU of a public hospital between October and December 2015. Results: Statisticallysignificant relationships with the nursing diagnosis under study and the following riskfactors and clinical data were observed: therapy with mechanical ventilation,neurological lesions with sensory loss, motor reflex, Schirmer test and length of hospitalstay. Burns,use of vasoactive drugs, Schirmer test and days of hospitalization alsoshowed a significant relation with ocular dryness. Conclusion: the results suggest thatsome risk factors and certain clinical data may present a greater relationship in the ICU environment. Practical implications: the knowledge provided can support the planning ofinterventions aimed at avoiding visual impairments.
