To determine the etiology and outcomes of critically ill patients with severe hyperammonemia.
Gastrointestinal dysmotility in critically ill patients is important as enteral nutrition is crucial. However, normal gut motility is impaired under conditions of critical illness subsequent to severe insult. Interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC) form an extensive network associated with the myenteric plexus in the enteric nervous system. There are few reports about ICC distribution in critically ill patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate ICC in critically ill patients.
Critically ill patients with severe intra-abdominal infections (IAIs) requiring surgery may undergo several pharmacokinetic (PK) alterations that can lead to β-lactam underdosage.
Vitamin D deficiency during critical illness has been associated with worsened outcomes. Because most critically ill patients with severe traumatic injuries are vitamin D deficient, we investigated the efficacy and safety of cholecalciferol therapy for these patients.
The pharmacokinetic (PK) data of ganciclovir (GCV), a first-line antiviral treatment for cytomegalovirus infections, in critically ill patients is limited. This study aimed at characterizing GCV population PK and inter-individual variability (IIV) in ICU patients. Secondary objectives were to identify patient characteristics responsible for IIV and simulate GCV exposure for different dosing regimens.
Innate immunity is an important host response to infection. However, the role of innate immunity as a prognostic biomarker in severe sepsis is still unknown. This study is to evaluate the discriminatory characteristics of these biomarkers on clinical outcome.
To date, clinical characteristics of the international severe asthma population are unknown. Inter-country comparisons are hindered by variable data collection within regional/national severe asthma registries. Our aim was to describe demographic and clinical characteristics of patients managed in severe asthma services in the USA, Europe, and Asia/Pacific region.
Recently, several new biological drugs targeting severe asthma are on the market, and various studies on severe asthma have been reported worldwide. However, in Japan, the data are still limited regarding epidemiology and burden of disease on severe asthma. This study determined the prevalence, characteristics, and burden of disease of patients with severe asthma.
With the expanding use of molecular assays, viral pathogens are increasingly recognized among critically ill adult patients with community-acquired severe respiratory illness; studies have detected respiratory viral infections (RVIs) in 17-53% of such patients. In addition, novel pathogens including zoonotic coronaviruses like the agents causing Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019 nCoV) are still being identified. Patients wi...
To investigate the clinical features, laboratory results, chest CT imaging manifestations and treatments of severe and critical influenza A (H1N1), and to analyze the relationship with the prognosis.
The use of antibacterial drugs is very common in critically ill patients and beta-lactam agents are widely used in this context. Critically ill patients show several characteristics (e.g., sepsis, renal impairment or conversely augmented renal clearance, renal replacement therapy) that may alter beta-lactam pharmacokinetics (PK) in comparison with non-critically ill patients. This narrative literature review aims to identify recent studies quantifying the variability of beta-lactams volume of distribution a...
Hyperammonemia is a key contributing factor for cerebral edema in acute liver failure. Continuous renal replacement therapy may help reduce ammonia levels. However, the optimal timing, mode, intensity, and duration of continuous renal replacement therapy in this setting are unknown. We aimed to study continuous renal replacement therapy use in acute liver failure patients and to assess its impact on hyperammonemia.
To describe the frequency of cardiovascular complications and cardiac dysfunction in critically-ill patients with moderate-severe traumatic brain injury (msTBI) and cardiac factors associated with in-hospital survival.
Comprehensive Prognostication in Critically Ill Pediatric Hematopoietic Cell Transplant Patients: Results from Merging the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR) and Virtual Pediatric Systems (VPS) Registries.
Critically ill pediatric allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) patients may benefit from early and aggressive interventions aimed at reversing the progression of multiorgan dysfunction. Therefore, we evaluated 25 early risk-factors for PICU mortality in order to improve mortality prognostication. We merged the Virtual Pediatric Systems (VPS, LLC) and Center For International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR) databases and analyzed 936 critically ill patients ≤21 years of age who had u...
Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) in critically ill patients is associated with a markedly increased morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was to establish the predictive value of clinical examination for AKI in critically ill patients.
Antibiotic-associated diarrhea (AAD) is a risk factor for exacerbating the outcome of critically ill patients. Dysbiosis induced by the exposure to antibiotics reveals the potential therapeutic role of fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) in these patients. Herein, we aimed to evaluate the safety and potential benefit of rescue FMT for AAD in critically ill patients.
The current study aimed to analyze the clinical characteristics of severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome (SFTS) and to explore the risk factors of critical patients. From 2016 to 2018, we collected the hospitalized diagnosed cases with SFTS in Jinan infectious disease hospital of Shandong University and analyzed by the descriptive epidemiological method. According to the prognosis, they were divided into general group and severe group. The epidemiological characteristics, clinical features, and labora...
Von Willebrand disease (VWD) is the most common inherited bleeding disorder. Most patients with mild and moderate VWD can be treated effectively with desmopressin. The management of severe VWD patients, mostly affected by type 2 and type 3 disease, can be challenging. In this article we review the current diagnosis and treatment of severe VWD patients. We will also discuss the management of severe VWD patients in specific situations, such as pregnancy, delivery, patients developing alloantibodies against vo...
To evaluate seasonal variations of clinical characteristics, therapeutic resource use, and outcomes of critically ill patients admitted to an intensive care unit.
As terlipressin becomes more widely used in clinical practice, more papers had reported the correlation between hyponatremia and terlipressin treatment. This study was performed to evaluate the clinical characteristics and risk factors of severe hyponatremia in cirrhotic patients treated with terlipressin and the effects of concomitant drugs.
Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is heterogeneous. As an indication of the heterogeneity of ARDS, there are patients whose syndrome improves rapidly (i.e., within 24 hours), others whose hypoxemia improves gradually and still others whose severe hypoxemia persists for several days. The latter group of patients with persistent severe ARDS poses challenges to clinicians. We attempted to assess the baseline characteristics and outcomes of persistent severe ARDS and to identify which variables are use...
Frailty is a common condition among critically ill patients. Usually evaluated in a mixed population of medical, cardiac and surgical patients, we aimed to assess the impact of frailty on short- and long-term mortality exclusively in critically ill older medical patients.
Many patients presenting with an acute severe ulcerative colitis (ASUC) to a regional hospital are transferred to a metropolitan hospital for specialized care. This study aimed to evaluate the outcomes and characteristics of these patients.
Glucocorticoids (GC) in all its various forms and formulations are likely one of the most commonly used pharmacologic agents in medicine. Their use can be profoundly therapeutic but are also associated with a myriad of acute and chronic side effects. It is fairly well-accepted in the medical community that GC can be life-saving when used in critically ill patients with severe exacerbations of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, HIV-associated pneumocystosis, and systemic vasculitides. However,...
