This prospective case control study was carried out in Mymensingh Medical College Hospital (MMCH) from April 2011 to March 2012. The main objective of the study was to determine the short term maternal outcome of pregnancy related Acute Kidney Injury and to identify aetiological factors and to observe clinical features of pregnancy related Acute Kidney Injury. Total 60 pregnant women with AKI were included in the study as sample and equal (60) number of pregnant women with normal renal function was taken as control...

BACKGROUND: Severe sepsis and septic shock are potentially deadly conditions managed in the emergency department (ED). Management centers on source control, fluid resuscitation, broad-spectrum antimicrobials, and vasopressors as needed. The use of corticosteroids is controversial. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the evidence behind corticosteroid therapy in patients with septic shock. DISCUSSION: Septic shock is associated with severe mortality and morbidity...

How to integrate capillary refill time and skin mottling score into the six-hour bundle. ABSTRACT: In 2015, the Surviving Sepsis Campaign six-hour bundle was updated. The revised version now recommends documenting the reassessment of volume status and tissue perfusion after initial fluid resuscitation through a repeated focused examination. This article addresses the practice and interpretation of two components of this examination in adults: capillary refill time and skin mottling score...

Boye L Jensen
In the present issue of Acta Physiologica, Guan et al. in their article "Mechanisms of sphingosine-1-phosphate-mediated vasoconstriction of rat afferent arterioles" (1) address the signaling events associated with sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P)-mediated renal afferent vasoconstriction and show in, technically demanding, blood-perfused juxtamedullary nephron preparation that S1P signaling relies predominantly on transmembrane calcium influx from the extracellular fluid through L-type calcium channels with contribution from oxidative stress metabolites(1) ...

The diaphragm is the major muscle of inspiration and its function is critical for optimal respiration. Diaphragmatic failure has long been recognized as a major contributor to death in a variety of systemic neuromuscular disorders. More recently, it is increasingly apparent that diaphragm dysfunction is present in a high percentage of critically ill patients, and is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. In these patients, diaphragm weakness is thought to develop from disuse secondary to ventilator-induced diaphragm inactivity, and as a consequence of the effects of systemic inflammation, including sepsis...

INTRODUCTION: The signs of Streptococcus pyogenes, group A streptococci (GAS) bacteremia are non-specific and patients can have wide presentations ranging from flu-like symptoms to life-threatening toxic-shock syndrome in just a few hours. CASE PRESENTATION: We report a case of fulminant S. pyogenes sepsis in an elderly woman with septic arthritis and remarkable past medical history/risk factors. She was febrile, hypotensive and had a swollen and tender right knee...

BACKGROUND: Evaluate the safety of a change in care setting for asymptomatic neonates born to mothers with chorioamnionitis from the neonatal intensive care unit to the well baby nursery.Local problem:The neonatal intensive care unit evaluation and management of babies born to mothers with chorioamionitis often involves separation of the mother-baby dyad and more invasive interventions. METHODS: A single-center pre/post-intervention study of neonates born from January 2011 to November 2016, comparing safety outcomes in the neonatal intensive care unit (pre-intervention) and well baby nursery (post-intervention), following initiation of a triage protocol...

False tooth extraction (FTE), a cultural practice in East Africa used to treat fever and diarrhea in infants, has been thought to increase infant mortality. The mortality of clinically similar infants with and without false tooth extraction has not previously been examined. The objective of our retrospective cohort study was to examine the mortality, clinical presentation, and treatment of infants with and without false tooth extraction. We conducted a retrospective chart review of records of infants with diarrhea, sepsis, dehydration, and fever in a rural Ugandan emergency department...

REVIEW
Kivanc Atesok, Peter MacDonald, Jeff Leiter, Sheila McRae, Greg Stranges, Jason Old
Rotator cuff repair (RCR) is one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures in orthopaedic surgery. The reported incidence of deep soft-tissue infections after RCR ranges between 0.3% and 1.9%. Deep shoulder infection after RCR appears uncommon, but the actual incidence may be higher as many cases may go unreported. Clinical presentation may include increasing shoulder pain and stiffness, high temperature, local erythema, swelling, warmth, and fibrinous exudate. Generalized fatigue and signs of sepsis may be present in severe cases...

To investigate roles of autophagy in ameliorating sepsis-induced acute lung injury by allicinin in mice.
 Methods: A total of 152 male Balb/c mice (8-week old) were randomly divided into a sham group, a septic model group, an allicin treatment group, and an autophagy inhibition group. Septic mouse model was established by cecal ligation and puncture (CLP). Mice in the allicin treatment group were given allicin (30 mg/kg, intra-peritoneal injection) at 6 and 12 h, while those in the autophagy inhibition group were given autophagy inhibitor 3-MA (15 mg/kg, intra-peritoneal injection) at half an hour after allicin administration...

Sepsis caused by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is a life-threatening disease accompanied by multiple organ failure. This study investigated the curative effects of imatinib (IMA) against hepatic, renal, and pulmonary responses caused by a single administration of LPS (10 mg/kg, i.p.) in rats. Treatment with IMA (15 mg/kg, i.p.) 30 min after LPS antagonized the LPS-induced boost of liver enzymes (ALT, AST), kidney functions (BUN, sCr) as well as the elevated pulmonary vascular permeability and edema. IMA declined tissue contents of NF-κB, STAT-3, P38-MAPK, TNF-α, IL-1β, and iNOS...

BACKGROUND: Sepsis management in the Emergency Department remains a daily challenge. The Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC) has released three-hour bundle. The implementation of these bundles in European Emergency Departments remains poorly described. The main objective was to assess the compliance with the Severe Sepsis Campaign 3-h bundle (blood culture, lactate dosage, first dose of antibiotics and 30 ml/kg fluid challenge). Secondary objectives were the analysis of the delay of severe sepsis recognition and description of the population...

BACKGROUND: Preterm infants remain at high risk of adverse outcomes following necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and late onset sepsis (LOS). Meta-analysis of randomized trials has indicated a reduction in severe NEC following use of probiotics and bovine lactoferrin (LF). Overall, however, uncertainty remains over which probiotic, or combination to use. The aim of this study was to compare the incidence of severe NEC and LOS before and after routine supplementation with Lactobacillus GG (LGG) and LF...

We report a previously healthy 16-month-old child who presented to us with membranous pharyngitis and ecthyma gangrenosum. In this patient, Pseudomonas aeruginosa was isolated from throat swab, cerebrospinal fluid, skin swab, urine, blood and synovial fluid in a single admission. In further workup, this child was diagnosed as a case of X-linked agammaglobulinaemia. The child was treated successfully with antipseudomonal antibiotics for 6 weeks and intravenous immunoglobulin.

BACKGROUND: Guidelines recommend an initial intravenous (IV) fluid bolus of 30 ml/kg isotonic crystalloid for patients with sepsis and hypotension. However, there is a lack of evidence from clinical trials to support this. Accumulating observational data suggest harm associated with the injudicious use of fluids in sepsis. There is currently equipoise regarding liberal or restricted fluid-volume resuscitation as first-line treatment for sepsis-related hypotension. A randomised trial comparing these two approaches is, therefore, justified...

The regulation of mitochondrial function is critical in cellular homeostasis following hemorrhagic shock. Hemorrhagic shock results in fluid loss and reduced availability of oxygen and nutrients to tissues. The spleen is a secondary lymphoid organ playing a key role in 'filtering the blood' and in the innate and adaptive immune responses. To understand the molecular basis of hemorrhagic shock, we investigated the changes in splenocyte mitochondrial respiration, and concomitant immune and metabolic alterations...
