Open-label Evaluation of Polymyxin B Hemoperfusion for Septic Shock

Open-label, non-controlled study of standard care plus the TORAYMYXIN PMX-20R (PMX cartridge) in subjects who have endotoxemia and septic shock. This is a continued access study subsequent...

Esmolol to Control Adrenergic Storm in Septic Shock- ROLL-IN 2

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...

Glycosaminoglycans During Septic Shock - a Temporal Study

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 Analysis of Factors Influencing the Vd of Imipenem in Septic Shock Patients

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...

Plasma and Lung Tissue Concentrations of Linezolid in Septic Shock Patients

The study measures the plasma and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid concentrations of linezolid in septic shock patients comparing with non-septic shock patients to confirm the impact of septic...

It is important for clinicians to recognize the contribution of toxic shock syndrome (TSS) to the overall burden of pediatric septic shock because the clinical features, optimal therapy and prognosis ...

The impact of obesity in cirrhotic patients with septic shock: a retrospective cohort study.

The prevalence of obesity in cirrhosis is rising. The impact of obesity in the critically-ill cirrhotic patient with sepsis/septic shock has not been evaluated. This study aimed to examine the relatio...

Septic shock-induced disseminated intravascular coagulation is responsible for increased occurrence of multiple organ dysfunction and mortality. Immunothrombosis-induced coagulopathy may contribute to...

Short-term effects of passive mobilization on the sublingual microcirculation and on the systemic circulation in patients with septic shock.

Active mobilization is not possible in patients under deep sedation and unable to follow commands. In this scenario, passive therapy is an interesting alternative. However, in patients with septic sho...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

A family of heat-shock proteins that contain a 70 amino-acid consensus sequence known as the J domain. The J domain of HSP40 heat shock proteins interacts with HSP70 HEAT-SHOCK PROTEINS. HSP40 heat-shock proteins play a role in regulating the ADENOSINE TRIPHOSPHATASES activity of HSP70 heat-shock proteins.
