Pathogenesis and Cerebrovascular Manifestations of Septic Encephalopathy

2014-08-27 03:41:12 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Septic encephalopathy is an important complication of sepsis. Why some patients with sepsis develop septic encephalopathy is unknown. We will investigate whether patients who develop this condition have different patterns of cerebrovascular reactivity and whether it is possible to predict the development of septic encephalopathy from early measurements of cerebral perfusion or from the EEG. We will specifically test the hypotheses that septic encephalopathy may not be predicted by changes in the EEG, and that cerebrovascular autoregulation is not dysfunctional in septic encephalopathy.

Predictive algoRithm for EValuation and Intervention in SEpsis

In this prospective study, the ability of a machine learning algorithm to predict sepsis and influence clinical outcomes, will be investigated at Cabell Huntington Hospital (CHH).

An Algorithm Driven Sepsis Prediction Biomarker

A sepsis early warning predictive algorithm, InSight, has been developed and validated on a large, diverse patient cohort. In this prospective study, the ability of InSight to predict seve...

Sepsis, Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock Detection by Breath Analysis

Breath samples will be collected from patients suspected of sepsis/severe sepsis or septic shock according to hospital sepsis screening criteria in the Emergency Department.

Myeloid-derived Suppressor Cells in Sepsis

This study is designed for septic patients, to isolate MDSCs and the correlation of prognosis of sepsis. The purpose of this study hopes to explore the phenomenon and possible mechanisms o...

Predictive Validity of Sepsis-3 Definitions and Sepsis Outcomes in Critically Ill Patients: A Cohort Study in 49 ICUs in Argentina.

The new Sepsis-3 definitions have been scarcely assessed in low- and middle-income countries; besides, regional information of sepsis outcomes is sparse. Our objective was to evaluate Sepsis-3 definit...

Respiratory Viral Infections in Infants with Possible Sepsis.

Knowledge of infections leading sepsis is needed to develop comprehensive infection prevention and sepsis early recognition and treatment strategies.The aim of this study was to investigate the etiolo...

Implementation of the Neonatal Sepsis Calculator in an Australian Tertiary Perinatal Centre.

Early-onset sepsis (EOS) is a potentially fatal condition that affects about 0.3-0.8/1,000 infants born at ≥35 weeks' gestation in developed countries. Current EOS management algorithms result in 8-...

Paths into Sepsis: Trajectories of Pre-Sepsis Healthcare Use.

Sepsis is a leading cause of death and disability whose heterogeneity is often cited as a key impediment to translational progress.

One-Year Survival after Inhospital Cardiac Arrest-Does Prearrest Sepsis Matter?

Cardiac arrest is not a common complication of sepsis, although sepsis has been recognized as one condition behind cardiac arrest. Our aim was to evaluate the prevalence of sepsis among patients with ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Systemic inflammatory response syndrome with a proven or suspected infectious etiology. When sepsis is associated with organ dysfunction distant from the site of infection, it is called severe sepsis. When sepsis is accompanied by HYPOTENSION despite adequate fluid infusion, it is called SEPTIC SHOCK.

Acute neurological dysfunction during severe SEPSIS in the absence of direct brain infection characterized by systemic inflammation and BLOOD BRAIN BARRIER perturbation.

Blood infection that occurs in an infant younger than 90 days old. Early-onset sepsis is seen in the first week of life and most often appears within 24 hours of birth. Late-onset occurs after 1 week and before 3 months of age.

Test to determine the presence of blood infection (e.g. SEPSIS; BACTEREMIA).

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.
