PURPOSE: To evaluate the efficacy of an early bronchoalveolar lavage (E-BAL) protocol. BAL was performed within 48 h for intubated patients with traumatic brain injury or chest trauma. We hypothesized that E-BAL would decrease antibiotic use and improve outcomes compared to late BAL (L-BAL) triggered by clinical signs of pneumonia. METHODS: Retrospective cohort analysis of 132 patients with quantitative BAL and ≥1 risk factor: head Abbreviated Injury Score ≥2, ≥3 rib fractures, or radiographic signs of aspiration or pulmonary contusion...

Corrected carotid systolic flow time (CFTc) has been proposed as a measure of volume status in acutely ill patients. This study endeavors to determine whether the change in CFTc with passive leg raise (PLR) maneuver correlates with volume status changes. Dialysis patients at Kingston General Hospital (Kingston, Canada) underwent point-of-care carotid ultrasonography at the beginning and the end of dialysis. With each measurement, 2 values were recorded: the absolute CFTc, and the difference in CFTc before and after the PLR maneuver...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to identify specific laboratory indices to distinguish Epstein-Barr virus-associated hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (EBV-HLH) in children. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this prospective study, Th1/Th2 cytokines, including IL-2, IL-4, IL-6, IL-10, TNF-α, and IFN-γ, were analyzed in patients with EBV-HLH or sepsis at the onset of disease by flow cytometry. RESULTS: IL-10, IFN-γ, IL-10/IL-6, and IFN-γ/IL-6 were higher and IL-6 was lower in EBV-HLH patients compared to sepsis patient levels...

PURPOSE: Continuous electroencephalography (cEEG) improves monitoring of the brain in unconscious patients, but implementation at ICU is difficult. The present investigation shows a way to introduce cEEG at an anesthesiological ICU and discusses the first experiences. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study analyzed the feasibility of cEEG, assessed the interpretable cEEG time, importance of automatic seizure detection, the incidence of seizures, the predominant background EEG activity, incidence of delirium and mortality...

PURPOSE: Using administrative codes and minimal physiologic and laboratory data, we sought a high-specificity identification strategy for patients whose sepsis initially appeared during their ICU stay. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We studied all patients discharged from an academic hospital between September 1, 2013 and October 31, 2014. Administrative codes and minimal physiologic and laboratory criteria were used to identify patients at high risk of developing the onset of sepsis in the ICU...

BACKGROUND: Myocardial injury after noncardiac surgery (MINS) contributes to mortality and morbidity. However, risk factors accelerating its development remain unclear. The aim of this study was to identify the incidence and risk factors of MINS. METHODS: A retrospective and observational cohort study of critical patients (n=1087) after noncardiac surgery was carried out at a large and tertiary university hospital from January 2012 to January 2013. The clinical data including medical history as well as intraoperative and postoperative variables were recorded...

PURPOSE: To investigate multimodality systemic and neuro-monitoring practices in acute brain injury (ABI) and to analyze differences among "neurointensivists" (NI; clinical practice comprised >1/3 by neurocritical care), and other intensivists (OI). METHODS: Anonymous 22-question Web-based survey among physician members of SCCM and ESICM. RESULTS: Six hundred fifty-five responded (66% completion rate); 422 (65%) were OI, and 226 (35%) were NI...

PURPOSE: The objective was to describe the characteristics and outcomes of critically ill cancer patients who received noninvasive positive pressure ventilation (NIPPV) vs invasive mechanical ventilation as first-line therapy for acute hypoxemic respiratory failure. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of consecutive adult intensive care unit (ICU) cancer patients who received either conventional invasive mechanical ventilation or NIPPV as first-line therapy for hypoxemic respiratory failure...
