Many studies have implicated operative length as a predictor of post-operative complications, including venous thromboembolism [deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE)]. We analyzed the American College of Surgeons (ACS) National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) database from 2006 to 2014, to evaluate whether length of operation had a statistically significant effect on post-operative complications in patients undergoing surgical resection of meningioma. Patients were included for this study if they had a post-operative diagnosis of meningioma...

OBJECTIVE: To establish evidence-based guidelines for the use of bedside cardiac ultrasound, echocardiography, in the ICU and equivalent care sites. METHODS: Grading of Recommendations, Assessment, Development and Evaluation system was used to rank the "levels" of quality of evidence into high (A), moderate (B), or low (C) and to determine the "strength" of recommendations as either strong (strength class 1) or conditional/weak (strength class 2), thus generating six "grades" of recommendations (1A-1B-1C-2A-2B-2C)...

BACKGROUND: Patients who have had an unprovoked deep venous thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolus (PE) are at a high risk for recurrent venous thromboembolism (VTE). Extended "life-long" anticoagulation has been recommended in these patients. However, the risk benefit ratio of this approach is controversial and the role of the direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) and aspirin is unclear. Furthermore, in some patients with a "weak provoking factor" there is clinical equipoise regarding continuation or cessation of anticoagulant therapy after treatment of the acute VTE event...

Critical Care Student/Resident Case Report Posters IIISESSION TYPE: Medical Student/Resident Case ReportPRESENTED ON: Tuesday, October 28, 2014 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PMINTRODUCTION: Acute Fibrinous and Organizing Pneumonia (AFOP) is a rare distinct histologic pattern of acute lung injury characterized by organizing intra-alveolar fibrin with a patchy distribution. Most cases are idiopathic, although a number of clinical associations have been made. Here we present the third reported case of AFOP associated with Decitabine...

SESSION TITLE: Critical Care Student/Resident Case Report Posters ISESSION TYPE: Medical Student/Resident Case ReportPRESENTED ON: Tuesday, October 28, 2014 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PMINTRODUCTION: Dobrava is a hantavirus that causes a severe Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome (HFRS) and can be associated with nonspecific CNS manifestations. Posterior Reversible Encephalopathy Syndrome (PRES) is a clinicoradiologic syndrome of headache, confusion, visual changes, and seizure with imaging findings of reversible posterior cerebral edema...

SESSION TYPE: Miscellaneous Cases IIIPRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 24, 2012 at 11:15 AM - 12:30 PMINTRODUCTION: Trastuzumab is an IgG1 humanized monoclonal antibody which targets Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor 2 (HER2). Since its development in 1998, Trastuzumab has been used for treatment of HER2 positive breast cancer. Pulmonary complications associated with Trastuzumab include acute lung injury, acute pneumonitis, organizing pneumonia, infusion-related reaction, and bronchospasm. We report a case of pulmonary sarcoidosis that developed after Trastuzumab therapy...

BACKGROUND: Patients with pulmonary embolism (PE) have a high risk of death, and it is important to recognize factors associated with higher mortality. Recently, several biomarkers have been studied for risk stratification in patients with PE. OBJECTIVES: Evaluate the available evidence on (a) the accuracy of brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) and N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) for the diagnosis of right ventricular dysfunction and (b) their value as a prognostic factor of all-cause in-hospital or short-term mortality in patients with PE...
