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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
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...

Hyperglycemia is frequent manifestations of the human metabolic response to systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS),sepsis and septic shock, and are implicated in the clinical outco...
Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery is associated with reperfusion syndrome and activation of inflammatory reaction (SIRS). These are more exaggerated when cardiopulmonary bypass (...
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...
The objective of the study was to determine the accuracy of phospholipase A2 group II (PLA2-II), interferon-gamma-inducible protein 10 (IP-10), angiopoietin-2 (Ang-2), and procalcitonin (PCT) plasma l...
This paper considers an SIRS model with nonlinear incidence rate and treatment. It is assumed that susceptible and infectious individuals have constant immigration rates. We investigate the existence...
Sickle cell anaemia (SCA) patients with vaso-occlusive crisis (VOC) have signs of inflammation and it is often difficult to diagnose a bacterial infection in them. This study was undertaken to evaluat...
Introduction. Serum procalcitonin (PCT) diagnosed sepsis in critically ill patients; however, its prediction for survival is not well established. We evaluated the prognostic value of dynamic changes...
Testicular cancer survival rates improved dramatically after cisplatin-based therapy was introduced in the 1970s. However, chemotherapy and radiation therapy are potentially carcinogenic. The purpose...
