PURPOSE: To analyze the impact on patient outcome of ventilator-associated events (VAEs) as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2008, 2013, and the correlation with ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) or tracheobronchitis (VAT). METHODS: This was a prospective, observational, multicenter, international study conducted at 13 intensive care units (ICUs); thirty consecutive adults mechanically ventilated for ≥ 48 h per site were eligible, with daily follow-up being recorded in a collaborative web database; VAEs were assessed using the 2013 CDC classification and its 2015 update...

PURPOSE: To describe long-term mortality and hospital readmissions of patients admitted to Brazilian intensive care units (ICU). METHODS: Retrospective cohort study of adult patients admitted to Brazilian hospitals affiliated to the Public Healthcare System from 10 state capitals. ICU patients were paired to non-ICU patients by frequency matching (ratio 1:2), according to postal code and admission semester. Hospitalization records were linked through deterministic linkage to national mortality data...

PURPOSE: Recent clinical data suggest that terlipressin, a vasopressin analogue, may be more beneficial in septic shock patients than catecholamines. However, terlipressin's effect on mortality is unknown. We set out to ascertain the efficacy and safety of continuous terlipressin infusion compared with norepinephrine (NE) in patients with septic shock. METHODS: In this multicentre, randomised, double-blinded trial, patients with septic shock recruited from 21 intensive care units in 11 provinces of China were randomised (1:1) to receive either terlipressin (20-160 µg/h with maximum infusion rate of 4 mg/day) or NE (4-30 µg/min) before open-label vasopressors...

OBJECTIVE: To identify research priorities in the management, epidemiology, outcome and underlying causes of sepsis and septic shock. DESIGN: A consensus committee of 16 international experts representing the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine and Society of Critical Care Medicine was convened at the annual meetings of both societies. Subgroups had teleconference and electronic-based discussion. The entire committee iteratively developed the entire document and recommendations...

PURPOSE: Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is heterogeneous in etiology, which may affect outcomes. Stratification into biologically-defined subtypes may reduce heterogeneity. However, it is unknown whether pediatric ARDS has clinically relevant subtypes. We aimed to determine whether clinical characteristics and predictors of mortality differed between direct and indirect ARDS, and separately between infectious and non-infectious ARDS. METHODS: This was a single center, prospective cohort study of 544 children with ARDS (Berlin) between July 2011 and June 2017, stratified into direct versus indirect ARDS, and separately into infectious versus non-infectious ARDS...

PURPOSE: We assessed the association between the premorbid functional status (PFS) and 1-year mortality and functional status of very old intensive care patients. METHODS: Using a nationwide quality registry, we retrieved data on patients treated in Finnish intensive care units (ICUs) during the period May 2012‒April 2013. Of 16,389 patients, 1827 (11.1%) were very old (aged 80 years or older). We defined a person with good functional status as someone independent in activities of daily living (ADL) and able to climb stairs without assistance; a person with poor functional status was defined as needing assistance for ADL or being unable to climb stairs...
