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...
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).
Severe sepsis induces significant changes in expression of insulin- and toll-like receptors, cytokines, markers of apoptosis, and activation of t- and b-lymphocytes.
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.
The aim of this study is to find out whether inflammation markers including cardiac markers have predictive value in evaluation of pathogenesis of sepsis in neutropenic haematological pati...
Endothelial dysfunction plays a central role in severe sepsis. Endocan is constitutively expressed in human endothelial cells when sepsis occurs. We tested the hypothesis that endocan concentrations a...
Sepsis is a leading cause of death in the intensive care unit. Immune modulatory therapy targeting sepsis-associated proinflammatory responses has not shown survival benefit. Here, the authors evaluat...
Case fatality in pregnancy-associated severe sepsis or septic shock appears reduced compared with nonpregnant women with severe sepsis or septic shock. It remains unclear if this difference is due to ...
Sepsis remains a disease with a high mortality rate. The study goal was to assess long-term survival of severe sepsis in young patients.
Globally, sepsis is a major cause of mortality through the combination of cardiovascular collapse and multi-organ dysfunction. Pregnancy appears to increase the risk of death in sepsis, but the exact ...
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.
The presence of fungi circulating in the blood. Opportunistic fungal sepsis is seen most often in immunosuppressed patients with severe neutropenia or in postoperative patients with intravenous catheters and usually follows prolonged antibiotic therapy.
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.
A demyelinating condition affecting the PONS and characterized clinically by an acute progressive QUADRIPLEGIA; DYSARTHRIA; DYSPHAGIA; and alterations of consciousness. Pathologic features include prominent demyelination in the central PONS with sparing of axons and neurons. This condition is usually associated with systemic disorders such as HYPONATREMIA; chronic ALCOHOLISM; LIVER FAILURE; severe BURNS; malignant NEOPLASMS; hemorrhagic PANCREATITIS; HEMODIALYSIS; and SEPSIS. The rapid medical correction of hyponatremia has been cited as a cause of this condition. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1125-6)
