Haemoglobin concentration and volume of intravenous fluids in septic shock in the ARISE trial
Intravenous fluids may contribute to lower haemoglobin levels in patients with septic shock. We sought to determine the relationship between the changes in haemoglobin concentration and the volume of intraveno...
We describe the clinical outcomes of adults who received ECMO in septic shock.MethodsWe retrospectively studied adults supported on veno-arterial or veno-venous modes of ECMO with septic shock at the time of cannulation from 1/1/2009-12/31/2016 at a quaternary medical center in the United States. The primary outcome was rate of survival to hospital discharge and time to survival using Kaplan-Meier survival estimates. We analyzed survival by mode, previous cardiac arrest and timing of cannulation (
As patient data are increasingly captured digitally, the opportunities to deploy artificial intelligence (AI), especially machine learning, are increasing rapidly. Machine learning is automated learning by computers using tools such as artificial neural networks to search data iteratively for optimal solutions. Typical applications include searching for novel patterns (eg, latent cancer subtypes), making a diagnosis or outcome prediction (eg, diabetic retinopathy), and optimizing treatment decisions (eg, fluid and vasopressor titration for septic shock). Although many express excitement regarding the promise of AI, others ...
Authors: Fernández Conesa M, Milena Muñoz A, Valero González MÁ Abstract We read with interest the article by Guido Villa-Gómez, Manuel Alejandro Mahler and Dante Manazzoni "A new case of pseudoaneurysm of the right hepatic artery secondary to laparoscopic cholecystectomy". A 57-year-old cholecystectomized female was admitted due to abdominal pain with an analytical pattern of cholestasis and liver enzyme alterations, with cholangitis that progressed to septic shock of a biliary origin with gradual anemia and hypotension.

Conclusions: Current randomized evidence showed that continuous IV administration of epinephrine as inotropic/vasopressor agent is not associated with a worse outcome in critically ill patients.

Conclusions: Sepsis affects a fifth of patients admitted to ICUs in mainland China with a 90-day mortality rate of 35.5%. Our findings indicate that a large burden of sepsis, and we need to focus on sepsis as a quality improvement target in China given the high mortality. In addition, further studies are needed to delineate the epidemiology of sepsis outside the ICU.

Conclusion: Sepsis remains common, costly to treat, and presages significant mortality for Medicare beneficiaries.
Conclusions: A sepsis inpatient admission is associated with marked increase in risk of death that is comparable to the risks associated with inpatient admissions for other common and serious chronic illnesses. The aggregate costs of sepsis care for Medicare beneficiaries will continue to increase.
Objectives: A companion article reports the trajectory of long-term mortality and significant health-related quality of life disability among children encountering septic shock. In this article, the investigators examine critical illness factors associated with these adverse outcomes. Design: Prospective, cohort-outcome study, conducted 2013–2017. Setting: Twelve United States academic PICUs. Patients: Critically ill children, 1 month to 18 years, with community-acquired septic shock requiring vasoactive-inotropic support. Interventions: Illness severity, organ dysfunction, and resource utilization data...
