Status Asthmaticus on the Intensive Care Prospective - STATIC PRO

2016-10-19 02:38:21 | BioPortfolio


This study will prospectively assess the impact and relevance of several risk factors for children with severe acute asthma (SAA) or acute wheeze that have been identified in retrospective studies. Secondary we will assess short-term medical and psychosocial functioning in patient (and parents) admitted to a PICU for SAA/acute wheeze versus a control group admitted to a MC for SAA/acute wheeze.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A sudden intense and continuous aggravation of a state of asthma, marked by dyspnea to the point of exhaustion and collapse and not responding to the usual therapeutic efforts.

A prolonged seizure or seizures repeated frequently enough to prevent recovery between episodes occurring over a period of 20-30 minutes. The most common subtype is generalized tonic-clonic status epilepticus, a potentially fatal condition associated with neuronal injury and respiratory and metabolic dysfunction. Nonconvulsive forms include petit mal status and complex partial status, which may manifest as behavioral disturbances. Simple partial status epilepticus consists of persistent motor, sensory, or autonomic seizures that do not impair cognition (see also EPILEPSIA PARTIALIS CONTINUA). Subclinical status epilepticus generally refers to seizures occurring in an unresponsive or comatose individual in the absence of overt signs of seizure activity. (From N Engl J Med 1998 Apr 2;338(14):970-6; Neurologia 1997 Dec;12 Suppl 6:25-30)
