Bedside vs. Standard Microbiological Blood Culture Diagnostics - BEMIDIA Study

2016-12-22 21:19:39 | BioPortfolio

Summary

With a completely bedside blood culture diagnostics system (BACTEC blood culture system in combination with the Accelerate ID/AST System) it is possible to optimize the initial antimicrobial therapy in patients with sepsis and septic shock.

Prospective observational, open-label mono-center study to compare a completely bedside blood culture diagnostics system (BACTEC blood culture system in combination with the Accelerate ID/AST System and Curetis Univero System) with standard blood culture diagnostics in patients with sepsis or septic shock.

Increased expression of programmed cell death-1 in regulatory T-cells of patients with severe sepsis and septic shock: an observational clinical study.

While regulatory T-cells (Tregs) constitutively express programmed cell death-1 (PD-1), the role of PD-1 expression in Tregs of patients with sepsis remains unclear. Thus, we determined PD-1 expressio...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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