CONCLUSIONS: Thiol/disulphide homeostasis is impaired in patients with sepsis and septic shock. Understanding the role of thiol/disulphide homeostasis in sepsis and septic shock may provide different therapuetic intervention strategies for patients.

This study aimed to evaluate the association between hemodynamic and skin perfusion parameters and enteral nutrition therapy (NT) outcomes in septic shock patients.
Conclusion: We provided “cell-block” method, which collects cell components from large amount of CSF for cytology and immunohistochemical analysis. “Cell-block” cytology can be an alternative diagnostic method in diagnosis of PCNSL.
A psoas abscess is a rare but potentially devastating condition that is associated with risks of neurological deficits, septic shock, and even death. The current first-line treatment is percutaneous catheter drainage (PCD) under imaging guidance, combined with broad-spectrum antibiotics. Surgical drainage should be considered if PCD fails or is impossible. Although many studies on PCD and open surgical drainage have appeared, the outcomes of laparoscopic drainage have rarely been reported. Thus, we laparoscopically drained the psoas abscesses of 6 patients; drainage was complete and we encountered no recurrence or complic...

Conclusions: SIRS can progress to septic shock if not identified early. The predictors of mortality were positive blood cultures, multiorgan dysfunction, late hospital admissions, severe acute malnutrition, and requirement of supportive care. The predictors of progression to septic shock were abnormal leukocyte count, culture positivity, and severe acute malnutrition.
Abstract Guidelines published in 2016 provide a revised definition of sepsis: life-threatening organ dysfunction caused by a dysregulated host response to infection. The guidelines define septic shock as sepsis with circulatory, cellular, and metabolic dysfunction that is associated with a higher risk of mortality. The measurement of serum lactate has been incorporated into the latest septic shock definition. The guidelines recommend the Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (original and quick versions) as an important tool for early diagnosis. Respiratory, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, and skin and soft tissue ...
