Respiratory Variations in Aortic Blood Flow to Predict Volume Responsiveness in Ventilated Children With Leukemia and Neutropenic Septic Shock*

Conclusions: Respiratory variation in velocity time integral of aortic blood flow and respiratory variation in peak velocity of aortic blood flow derived from transthoracic echocardiography showed only a fair reliability in predicting volume responsiveness in ventilated children with leukemia and neutropenic septic shock.

Conclusion: Plasma levels of adiponectin are associated with the ASPECTS scores.RESUMO Introdu ção: A Alberta Stroke Early Score (ASPECTS) foi desenvolvida para monitorização de alterações isquêmicas precoces na tomografia computadorizada de crânio, estando associada a desfechos clínicos. A ASPECTS também pode se associar aos biomarcadores periféricos que refletem a resposta fisio patológica do cérebro ao AVC isquêmico. Objetivo: Investigar à associação entre os parâmetros periféricos com a Alber...

We report on the feasibility of implementing such standardized assessments into routine clinical care via measures of adherence. We also report on initial analyses of the data within the database that provide insights into the opportunities to track change. This initiative highlights the feasibility of collecting clinical data using a standardized assessment measure across acute and inpatient rehabilitation care settings. Practice-based evidence may inform future research by contributing pilot data and systematic observations that may lead to the development of empirical studies, which can then feed back into clinical practice.

Authors: Pampa-Saico S, Pintado V, Muriel A, Caravaca-Fontan F, Yerovi-León E, Rojo-Sanchis A, Del Rey JM, Tenorio MT, Liaño F Abstract BACKGROUND: Colistimethate sodium (CMS) treatment has increased over the last years, being acute kidney injury (AKI) its main drug-related adverse event. Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate the incidence and risk factors associated with AKI, as well as identifying the factors that determine renal function (RF) outcomes at six months after discharge. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This retrospective study included adult septic patients receiving intravenous CMS for at ...

Abstract Background Packed red blood cell (PRBC) transfusion is required in hematology patients treated with chemotherapy for acute leukemia, autologous (auto) or allogeneic (allo) hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). In certain situations like septic shock, hip surgery, coronary disease or gastrointestinal hemorrhage, a restrictive transfusion strategy is associated with a reduction of infection and death. A transfusion strategy using a single PRBC unit has been retrospectively investigated and showed a safe reduction of PRBC consumption and costs. We therefore designed a study ...
