The Relation between Sarcopenia and Mortality in Patients at Intensive Care Unit.
In this study, we aimed to investigate the relation between PMA and mortality in all age groups in intensive care unit (UNIT). Materials and Method: The study consists of 362 consecutive patients. The demographic characteristics of patients, indications for ICU hospitalization, laboratory parameters, and clinical parameters consist of mortality and length of stay, and surgery history was obtained from intensive care archive records. Results: The mean age was 61.2 ± 18.2 years, and the percentage of female was 33.3%. The mean duration of stay was 10.3 ± 24.4 days. Exitus ratio, partial healing, and h...

Analysis of clinical and candidate genetic risk factors for postoperative atrial tachycardia after congenital heart surgery in infants
Conclusion AT occurs in 15% of infants after CHD surgery and is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Risk factors include use of 2 or more inotropes, neonatal age, and higher surgical complexity score. We observed no association between common genetic variants in PITX2 and IL6 and AT in infants after CHD surgery. (Source: American Heart Journal)

Phenobarbital monotherapy for alcohol withdrawal syndrome in the non-intensive care unit setting: a review
ConclusionsThe availability of literature evaluating phenobarbital was limited. Phenobarbital regimens varied between cases and studies and, although generalizations regarding phenobarbital use for treatment or prevention of AWS cannot be made, phenobarbital has demonstrated tolerability in limited cases. A benefit-to-risk assessment should be conducted prior to using phenobarbital. Providers should consider clinical evidence in addition to phenobarbital clinical pharmacology in product selection.

Psychosocial assessment and intervention – are we doing enough?
Much of the focus of preventive cardiology has been – and continues to be – on issues such as physical activity, weight reduction, dietary change, drug therapy. Whilst this is important and laudable comparatively scant attention has been focused on psychosocial aspects such as depression, anxiety and social isolation. Assessing and intervening to alleviate these issues impacts not only directly but indirectly on how well people can manage to increase physical activity, reduce weight and adhere to diets and medications.

Fluid therapy remains an important cornerstone in the prevention of progressive chugging in extracorporeal membrane oxygenation
With great interest we read the article by Water et  al.1 taking a closer look at a common problem in ECMO therapy. The authors are to be complemented for highlighting this serious issue because overtreatment as well as neglecting chugging can endanger patients. Obviously, optimizing cannula position and evaluating the need for a second draining can nula is advised. In patients with adequate oxygenation, decreasing pump speed might also be an option. But how to manage the fully ECMO dependent patient? Water at al. (Source: Heart and Lung)

We read with great interest the work from Jellish and Oftadeh about peripheral nerve injury after cardiac surgery.1 Their article well summarizes the known nerve lesions related to cardiac surgery, together with the pathophysiology and clinical workup. Among the possible iatrogenic lesions, which can affect patients undergoing cardiac surgery, a significant role is played by diaphragmatic dysfunction due to phrenic nerve injury. Phrenic nerve injury is not the only cause of diaphragmatic dysfunction because the diaphragm also can be damaged itself, mainly by surgery or because of prolonged mechanical ventilation in the int...
