The purpose of this study was to compare ACCM/PALS guidelines performed with and without central venous oxygen saturation monitoring on the morbidity and mortality rate of children with se...
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...
We have previously shown that the plasma level of glycosaminoglycans (GAG) in septic shock patients are elevated compared to controls. The purpose of this study is to investigate the tempo...
The study measures the plasma concentrations of imipenem in septic shock patients and non-septic shock patients and observes hypoalbuminemia and the impact of the severity of critical illn...
The main objective of the present study was to evaluate whether cerebral oxygen saturation is associated with an increase of NPOBC in pediatric patients undergoing major surgery.
Septic shock is a highly heterogeneous condition which is part of the challenge in its diagnosis and treatment. In this study we aim to identify clinically relevant subphenotypes of septic shock using...
Nasal packing is one of the most common rhinological procedures in ENT practice exerting local in nose and systemic effects. Systemic effects may be due to poor sleep quality, respiratory difficulty, ...
Decompressive craniectomy (DC) is a life-saving intervention for malignant cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT). Earlier studies have shown increase in cerebral oxygenation after DC in traumatic brain inj...
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...
To investigate the prognostic significance of central venous-arterial carbon dioxide tension to arterial-venous oxygen content ratio (Pcv-aCO(2)/Ca-cvO(2)) combined with lactate clearance rate (LCR) a...
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.
The determination of oxygen-hemoglobin saturation of blood either by withdrawing a sample and passing it through a classical photoelectric oximeter or by electrodes attached to some translucent part of the body like finger, earlobe, or skin fold. It includes non-invasive oxygen monitoring by pulse oximetry.
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.
Increase in blood LACTATE concentration often associated with SEPTIC SHOCK; LUNG INJURY; SEPSIS; and DRUG TOXICITY. When hyperlactatemia is associated with low body pH (acidosis) it is LACTIC ACIDOSIS.
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.
