Diagnosis and treatment of infective endocarditis (IE) is still a challenge for physicians. Group of patients with the worst prognosis is treated in Intensive Cardiac Care Unit (ICCU). Etiologic agent can not be identified in a substantial number of patients. AIM: The aim of study is to find differences between patients with blood culture negative infective endocarditis (BCNIE) and blood culture positive infective endocarditis (BCPIE) treated in ICCU by comparing their clinical course and laboratory parameters...

Every year, about 300,000 people die because of pesticide poisoning worldwide. The most common pesticide agents are organophosphates and phosphides, aluminium phosphide (AlP) in particular. AlP is known as a suicide poison that can easily be bought and has no effective antidote. Its toxicity results from the release of phosphine gas as the tablet gets into contact with moisture. Phosphine gas primarily affects the heart, lungs, gastrointestinal tract, and kidneys. Poisoning signs and symptoms include nausea, vomiting, restlessness, abdominal pain, palpitation, refractory shock, cardiac arrhythmias, pulmonary oedema, dyspnoea, cyanosis, and sensory alterations...

INTRODUCTION: Clevidipine is an ultra-shorting acting, intravenous calcium channel antagonist of the dihydropyridine class. Metabolism by blood and tissue esterases results in a half-life of 1-2 minutes thereby allowing easy titration by i.v. administration. We present preliminary experience with this novel agent to provide controlled hypotension (CH) in a cohort of adolescents undergoing posterior spinal fusion. METHODS: The records of patients < or = 18 years of age who received clevidipine for CH were retrospectively reviewed...

UNLABELLED: The purpose of this work was to observe the hemodynamic stability on the first 24 hours in 4 patients with ventricular dysfunction (Ejected Fraction < 40 %), considered of high surgical risk, in which 24 at 48 hr before the surgery received an infusion of Levosimendan for 24 hours. This 4 patients was male, with age 55.5+/-7.9 years old, a left ventricle ejection of fraction (LVEF) of 31+/-5.47%; Two of them was underwent to valve replacement, another one to coronary artery bypass graft and the last one patient underwent combined procedure (coronary artery bypass graft surgery and valve replacement)...

In cases with postoperative shock and collapse a constant fall in the concentration of serum cathecholamines was noted. Thus adrenalin was reduced by 77%, noradrenalin by 86.5%, in direct proportion with the fall in the blood pressure, of the pulse amplitude and with the slowing-down (or the arrest) of the microcirculation. The reduction of serum cathecholamines also coincided with a decrease in the amount of buffer bases and of the diuresis. The adrenocortical vasopresor sympathicolithic mixture is indicated in the prolonged arterial hypotension following failure of therapy aimed at filling of the vascular bed associated with the administration of sympathicolytic drugs...
