Sepsis in ICU:Causes and Outcomes of Sepsis in Diabetics Versus Non Diabetics in Assiut University Hospital

2019-07-17 10:05:16 | BioPortfolio


Clarify different causes of sepsis in patients admitted to ICU . as well asCompare causes and outcomes of sepsis between diabetics versus non diabetics .

3.Screening for the commonest organism causing sepsis in critically ill patients.

Determine better protocol therapy that help in decreasing mortality and morbidity in patients with sepsis in ICU.


Sepsis is a physiologic, pathologic, and biochemical abnormalities induced by infection.

sepsis is considered as a leading cause of mortality and critical illness worldwide by many conservative estimates.

sepsis epidemiology studies worldwide revealed a highly variable incidence of 13-300 per 100,000 inhabitants per year for severe sepsis and 11 per 100,000 inhabitants per year for septic shock .

factors such as advancing age, immunosuppression and multi-drug-resistant infection play a role in increasing incidence of sepsis during recent decades .

patients who survive sepsis often have long-term physical, psychological, and cognitive disabilities with significant health and social implications.

Patients with diabetes mellitus have an increased risk of developing infections and sepsis and they constitute 20.1-22.7% of all sepsis patients.

Infection also remains an important cause of death in diabetics. The prevalence of diabetes mellitus in Intensive Care Unit patients is as high as 30%, And such patients are at increased risk of experiencing in-hospital Complications, compared to patients without diabetes.

Infective complications may be reduced with lower blood glucose concentrations Moreover, in critically ill patients without diabetes, Hyperglycemia is associated with increased mortality, risk of infection, Kidney injury and cardiovascular complications.

Moreover, diabetes is a major risk factor for both Acute Kidney Injury and sepsis.

Sepsis also is a major cause of Acute Kidney Injury, which develops in one-fourth of all patients with sepsis and half of patients with bacteremia or shock .

Sepsis-related Acute Kidney Injury is associated with high mortality rates of up to 70%.

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.

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

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

Specific loci that show up during KARYOTYPING as a gap (an uncondensed stretch in closer views) on a CHROMATID arm after culturing cells under specific conditions. These sites are associated with an increase in CHROMOSOME FRAGILITY. They are classified as common or rare, and by the specific culture conditions under which they develop. Fragile site loci are named by the letters "FRA" followed by a designation for the specific chromosome, and a letter which refers to which fragile site of that chromosome (e.g. FRAXA refers to fragile site A on the X chromosome. It is a rare, folic acid-sensitive fragile site associated with FRAGILE X SYNDROME.)

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.
