A good blood supply is good for memory
(DZNE - German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases) Memory performance and other cognitive abilities benefit from a good blood supply to the brain. This applies in particular to people affected by a condition known as 'sporadic cerebral small vessel disease'. Researchers of the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and the University Medicine Magdeburg report on this in the journal 'BRAIN'. Their study suggests that blood perfusion of the so-called hippocampus could play a key role in age- and disease-related memory problems. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)

From a pressure-guided to a perfusion-centered resuscitation strategy in septic shock: Critical literature review and illustrative case
We support a paradigm shift in the management of septic shock from pressure-guided to perfusion-centered, expected to improve outcome while reducing adverse effects from vasopressor therapy and aggressive fluid resuscitation. We propose focusing the hemodynamic management of septic shock on reversing organ hypoperfusion instead of attaining a predefined MAP target as the key strategy for improving outcome.

What Is the Classic Clinical Presentation of Pericarditis?
Discussion The pericardium is a bi-layered membrane that envelops the heart and provides a barrier to prevent disease and also decreases friction as the heart moves. Pericarditis is the inflammation of pericardium. The incidence is underreported as asymptomatic or mild disease may go unrecognized. From hospitalized patient data, 0.2-5% of patients with various cardiac disease had pericarditis. An incidence rate for hospitalizations of 3.32 per 100,000 person years has been cited. Percarditis occurs more often in adolescent males. Treatment of the underlying cause or suspected cause is important, along with close monitorin...

3D bioprinting of collagen to rebuild components of the human heart
We present a method to 3D-bioprint collagen using freeform reversible embedding of suspended hydrogels (FRESH) to engineer components of the human heart at various scales, from capillaries to the full organ. Control of pH-driven gelation provides 20-micrometer filament resolution, a porous microstructure that enables rapid cellular infiltration and microvascularization, and mechanical strength for fabrication and perfusion of multiscale vasculature and tri-leaflet valves. We found that FRESH 3D-bioprinted hearts accurately reproduce patient-specific anatomical structure as determined by micro–computed tomography. Car...

Effects of mean arterial pressure on arousal in sedated ventilated patients with septic shock: a SEPSISPAM post hoc exploratory study
It is unknown whether the recommended mean arterial pressure (MAP) target of 65 mmHg during initial resuscitation of septic shock is sufficient to maintain cerebral perfusion. Thus, we tested the hypothesis that a higher MAP target in patients with septic shock may improve level of arousal. In patients with septic shock who were mechanically ventilated and sedated, resuscitation with MAP target between 80 and 85 mmHg was associated with higher arousal level as compared to a MAP target between 65 and 70 mmHg.

Importance of diastolic arterial pressure in septic shock: PRO
Along with heart rate, the arterial blood pressure is the most commonly used variable to assess the cardiovascular status in the general population. Physicians caring patients with chronic hypertension are well aware of the necessity to target a very tight safe range of diastolic arterial pressure (DAP), when using anti-hypertensive drugs. We believe that the DAP as a marker of arterial tone and as the upstream pressure for the left ventricular perfusion, is as an important variable to be considered in patients with septic shock. Since the DAP is easily obtained in such patients using an arterial catheter, it would be regr...

Sepsis: Noninvasive Assessment
Early recognition and treatment of patients with sepsis remains essential to improving outcomes. Interventions focus on identifying and treating the source of the infection and supporting the patient's tissue perfusion through fluid resuscitation. Both invasive and noninvasive assessments can be used to evaluate tissue perfusion and often less invasive techniques are often overlooked. Incorporating noninvasive assessment techniques can assist the perianesthesia nurse in gathering data to evaluate the patient's response to treatment.
