ConclusionsThe virtual and real weight estimates had very similar accuracy outcomes for both tapes in this study. However, if virtual studies are used, they should be followed by real-life studies in order to assess the impact of human and patient factor errors on the accuracy of the weight estimation systems.
Conclusions: In response to devastating illness, patients and families are frequently motivated by factors that go beyond obtaining effective care. Awareness of these factors can help clinicians to identify sources of potential conflict and continue to provide compassionate care.
Objectives: To characterize renin in critically ill patients. Renin is fundamental to circulatory homeostasis and could be a useful marker of tissue-perfusion. However, diurnal variation, continuous renal replacement therapy and drug-interference could confound its use in critical care practice. Design: Prospective observational study. Setting: Single-center, mixed medical-surgical ICU in Europe. Patients: Patients over 18 years old with a baseline estimated glomerular filtration rate greater than 30 mL/min/1.73 m2 and anticipated ICU stay greater than 24 hours. Informed consent was obtained from the pati...
Objectives: Antimicrobial stewardship is advocated to reduce antimicrobial resistance in ICUs by reducing unnecessary antimicrobial consumption. Evidence has been limited to short, single-center studies. We evaluated whether antimicrobial stewardship in ICUs could reduce antimicrobial consumption and costs. Design: We conducted a phased, multisite cohort study of a quality improvement initiative. Setting: Antimicrobial stewardship was implemented in four academic ICUs in Toronto, Canada beginning in February 2009 and ending in July 2012. Patients: All patients admitted to each ICU from January 1, 2007, to Decemb...
Objectives: To evaluate the ramifications of steroid use during postarrest care. Design: Retrospective observational population-based study enrolled patients during years 2004–2011 with 1-year follow-up. Setting: Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database. Patients: Adult nontraumatic cardiac arrest patients in the emergency department, who survived to admission. Interventions: These patients were classified into the steroid and nonsteroid groups based on whether steroid was used or not during hospitalization. A propensity score was used to match patient underlying characteristics, steroid use p...
