Introduction: Contrast computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging are widely used due to its image quality and ability to study pancreatic and peripancreatic morphology. The understanding of the various subtypes of the disease and identification of possible complications requires a familiarity with the terminology, which allows effective communication between the different members of the multidisciplinary team. Aim: Demonstrate the terminology and parameters to identify the different classifications and findings of the disease based on the international consensus for acute pancreatitis ( Atlanta Classification 2012)...

Monitoring plasma concentrations of antimicrobial agents used to treat infection in critically ill patients is one of the recommended strategies for improving clinical outcome. Drug monitoring has a double aim: to limit adverse events and to increase the effectiveness of the drugs. In clinical practice, however, this approach is mainly limited to monitoring plasma concentrations of vancomycin and aminoglycosides, although future extension to other antimicrobial agents would be desirable. Application of this technique varies considerably between hospitals, and this makes interpretation and comparison of the results obtained difficult...

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is an important pathogen, both in-hospital and in the community. Although there are several guidelines with recommendations for the control of this microorganism, the measures proposed are not uniformly implemented in Spanish hospitals. The objective of this document is to provide evidence-based recommendations that are applicable to Spanish hospitals, with the aim of reducing transmission of MRSA in our health care centers. The recommendations are divided into the following groups: surveillance, active detection of colonization in patients and health care workers, control measures for colonized or infected patients, decolonization therapy, environmental cleaning and disinfection, antimicrobial consumption, measures for non-hospitalized patients, and others...

In recent years, an increment of infections caused by gram-positive cocci has been documented in nosocomial and hospital-acquired-infections. In diverse countries, a rapid development of resistance to common antibiotics against gram-positive cocci has been observed. This situation is exceptional in Spain but our country might be affected in the near future. New antimicrobials active against these multi-drug resistant pathogens are nowadays available. It is essential to improve our current knowledge about pharmacokinetic properties of traditional and new antimicrobials to maximize its effectiveness and to minimize toxicity...

BACKGROUND: To determine risk and prognostic factors in patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) in which an episode of bacteremia caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa has been diagnosed. PATIENTS AND METHOD: Cohort, observational, prospective, multicenter study. Patients admitted to 30 ICUs in Spain in whom one or more pathogens were isolated from blood cultures were included. RESULTS: In a total of 16,216 patients admitted to the participating ICUs during the study period, 949 episodes of bacteremia were diagnosed In 77 cases (8...

OBJECTIVE: Afer twenty years of commercial availability of cefotaxime, the objective of this study was to know the reasons and modes of use, administration dosage as well as its effectiveness and tolerance in critically ill patients admitted to Intensive Care Units (ICU) in our country. DESIGN: Open, prospective, observational, multicenter study. SUBJECTS: All patients who had cefotaxime administered in monotherapy or in combination with other antibiotics were included as cases in this study...
