Infections Related Central Venous Catheters
The purpose of this study is to clarify the relationship between SIRS (Systemic inflammatory response syndrome) and the infection associated with the use of central venous catheters at Critical Care center in National Defense Medical College, Japan.
The doctor would remove the inserted catheter from the patient, if the patient shows SIRS. At the same time, the tip of used catheter and blood from the patient are checked whether the pathogenic bacteria exists or not by general bacterial protocol and blood culture test on a routine application. Unfortunately, these tests not always clarified their cause of SIRS. Therefore we conduct this investigation to establish the useful protocol for pathogenic bacteria. We check the pathogenic bacteria not only tip but through the whole catheter in Central Venous Catheter using general bacterial protocol and SEM observation. Additionally, we compared that sputum, urine, skin and blood from the patient for bacteria check.

Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome
A systemic inflammatory response to a variety of clinical insults, characterized by two or more of the following conditions: (1) fever >38 degrees C or HYPOTHERMIA <36 degrees C; (2) TACHYCARDIA >90 beat/minute; (3) tachypnea >24 breaths/minute; (4) LEUKOCYTOSIS >12,000 cells/cubic mm or 10% immature forms. While usually related to infection, SIRS can also be associated with noninfectious insults such as TRAUMA; BURNS; or PANCREATITIS. If infection is involved, a patient with SIRS is said to have SEPSIS.
Systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) is characterized by changes in body temperature, heart rate, respiratory rate, or peripheral blood white cell count, and is often a heralding...

Recent advances in critical care medicine have dramatically improved morbidity and mortality of critical illness. Goal-directed therapy protocols have been instrumental in this change. Goa...
BACKGROUND: Systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) is a syndrome that reflects the widespread activation of inflammatory pathways. The goal of this study was to find whether the presence or ab...
ABSTRACT High mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) mediates inflammation. We investigated the role of serum HMGB1 in 54 patients with hematological malignancies with and without systemic inflammatory response...
Background The systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) and sequential organ failure assessment (SOFA) scores are widely used as prognostic markers in critical care settings and could improve...
PURPOSE: Esophageal anastomotic leakage is still a major cause of morbidity and mortality after esophagectomy. We conducted this study to elucidate how anastomotic leakage affect...
The first-line treatment for intra-abdominal abscess is source control. Sometimes, however, source control is too invasive for relatively small abscesses and is not feasible due to the risk of injury...
