Heart Risk Up if Hospitalized for Pneumonia or Sepsis

FRIDAY, Aug. 11, 2017 -- Adults who've been hospitalized with pneumonia or sepsis have a higher risk of heart disease, a new European study reports. Researchers examined data from nearly 237,000 Swedish men. They were followed from age 18 into...

ConclusionOverall, 11.7% of DS patients required prolonged ventilation after cardiac surgery. Pulmonary hypertension was seen more frequently in cases requiring PMV, and half of PMV cases required antipulmonary hypertension medication upon discharge. Early recognition of pulmonary hypertension and proper perioperative management are recommended to avoid serious complication and comorbidity after cardiac surgery.

ConclusionsCardiac abnormalities found in PD/PS are manifold but the most prominent is cardiac autonomic dysfunction. The frequency of coronary heart disease in PD is a matter of debate. Only rarely reported in PD/PS are cardiomyopathies, arrhythmias, and sudden cardiac death, and SUDPAR. It is particularly recommended that PD/PS patients are more intensively investigated cardiologically as soon as the diagnosis is established. Early recognition of cardiac involvement is important for preventing SCD and SUDPAR.

I'm of the opinion that there simply isn't enough data on extremely old humans to do more than roll the dice on the outcome produced by any one statistical analysis, though the results noted here are based on a large enough study population to perhaps demand more attention than past efforts. The researchers have avoided the very sparse data for supercentenarians (110 and older) by focusing on people aged 105 to 110. They conclude that mortality rates stay much the same across that span, at more or less a 50% yearly attrition. This disagrees with one of the more recent attempts to run the numbers for supercentenarian mortal...

INFECTIVE ENDOCARDITIS (IE) is an infection of the endocardial surface of the heart; this can include cardiac valves or an intracardiac device. IE has an annual incidence ranging from 3 to 9 per 100,000 persons, making the disease relatively uncommon; however, IE is associated with an increased morbidity and mortality and is the third or fourth most common life-threatening infection syndrome, after sepsis, pneumonia, and intra-abdominal abscess.1 The male:female case ratio is more than 2:1. Risk factors for the development of IE include cardiac causes such as presence of prosthetic valves, intracardiac devices, a history o...

Conclusions: Few children with ventilator-associated pneumonia diagnosis met the proposed PVAP criteria. PVAP was associated with increased morbidity and mortality. This work suggests that additional study is required before new definitions for ventilator-associated pneumonia are introduced for children.

A 65-year-old male patient who had been hospitalized in the ─▒ntensive care unit for pneumonia presented with hematemesis and melena. He was diagnosed with metastatic adenocarcinoma of prostate (multiple bone and lung metastases), which was accompanied by diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and coronary heart disease. The hemoglobin levels decreased from 11.4 g /dL to 7.3 g/dL during follow-up. Upper endoscopy revealed widespread distribution of numerous umbilicated nodules with varying sizes (from 0.5 to 2 cm) on gastric mucosa (A, B, C).
