Evidence suggests that septic shock patients with chronic arterial hypertension may benefit from resuscitation targeted to achieve higher blood pressure values than other patients, possibly as a resul...
The objective of this study was to evaluate the prognostic value of lactate levels during the first 12 hours after shock development and to identify the optimal timing for repeated lactate measurement...
Acute renal failure in patients with sepsis is associated with high mortality. Studies have highlighted alterations in serum paraoxonase-1 in severe infections. However, the published literature has n...
The extracorporeal removal of mediators is a rescue strategy for septic shock patients, which is still under investigation. Several techniques are available: coupled plasma filtration and adsorption (...
Although the use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) in shock patients is increasing worldwide, studies concerning this treatment for adult septic shock are limited. This study aimed to anal...
The purpose of this study : 1）to determine whether hydrocortisone is effective in the treatment of septic shock and 2) to identify the role of timing of low dose hydrocortisone administr...
Septic shock is a common syndrome caused by the body's response to an infection. Septic shock is responsible for 10% of all ICU admissions and 30% of ICU deaths. Use of "beta blocker" medi...

The role of albumin in sepsis has been controversial for decades. Although hypoalbuminemia has been associated with worse outcomes in sepsis, definitive evidence does not exist that replac...
Sepsis associated with HYPOTENSION or hypoperfusion despite adequate fluid resuscitation. Perfusion abnormalities may include, but are not limited to LACTIC ACIDOSIS; OLIGURIA; or acute alteration in mental status.
Condition of low SYSTEMIC VASCULAR RESISTANCE that develops secondary to other conditions such as ANAPHYLAXIS; SEPSIS; SURGICAL SHOCK; and SEPTIC SHOCK. Vasoplegia that develops during or post surgery (e.g., CARDIOPULMONARY BYPASS) is called postoperative vasoplegic syndrome or vasoplegic syndrome.
An acute hypersensitivity reaction due to exposure to a previously encountered ANTIGEN. The reaction may include rapidly progressing URTICARIA, respiratory distress, vascular collapse, systemic SHOCK, and death.
An acute febrile disease occurring predominately in Asia. It is characterized by fever, prostration, vomiting, hemorrhagic phenonema, shock, and renal failure. It is caused by any one of several closely related species of the genus Hantavirus. The most severe form is caused by HANTAAN VIRUS whose natural host is the rodent Apodemus agrarius. Milder forms are caused by SEOUL VIRUS and transmitted by the rodents Rattus rattus and R. norvegicus, and the PUUMALA VIRUS with transmission by Clethrionomys galreolus.
