A 36-year-old man was admitted to the intensive care unit due to diabetic ketoacidosis and pneumonia requiring mechanical ventilation. Three weeks after admission, he developed a refractory bacteremia with Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase-producing bacteria (KPC). He remained febrile and with bacteremia for six weeks despite therapy with polymyxin B, carbapenems, and amikacin. Imaging studies looking for deep-seated infection revealed vertebral L1-L2 diskitis and osteomyelitis with pre-vertebral abscess and bilateral psoas pyomyositis that were not amenable for drainage...

INTRODUCTION: Recent reports on the use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) in critically ill burn patients with Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) recommended against the use of ECMO. The authors cited the high mortality rates associated with the use of ECMO in these patients with no appreciable benefit. Accumulating evidence from referral centers suggests improved survival in patients with ARDS receiving ECMO. We report our recent experience treating patients with severe ARDS with ECMO in a burn intensive care unit...

BACKGROUND: Many patients with acute intracerebral hemorrhages (ICHs) undergo endotracheal intubation with subsequent mechanical ventilation (MV) for "airway protection" with the intent to prevent aspiration, pneumonias, and its related mortality. Conversely, these procedures may independently promote pneumonia, laryngeal trauma, dysphagia, and adversely affect patient outcomes. The net benefit of intubation and MV in this patient cohort has not been systematically investigated...

Epidemiological studies on pressure ulcers (PUs) in hospitalised infants are scarce. Spain lacks comprehensive research studies providing data on the prevalence or incidence in this population. This work was developed to determine the incidence of PUs in hospitalised infants admitted to intensive and intermediate care units, along with relevant risk factors and preventive measures. A prospective study appraising the incidence of PUs in infants was performed. The risk factors and preventive measures were evaluated using a multivariate logistic regression model...

BACKGROUND: Acute kidney injury is commonly seen after liver transplantation. The optimal perioperative target mean arterial pressure (MAP) for renal filtration, perfusion and oxygenation in liver recipients is not known. The effects of norepinephrine-induced changes in MAP on renal blood flow (RBF), oxygen delivery (RDO2 ), glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and renal oxygenation (=renal oxygen extraction, RO2 Ex) were therefore studied early after liver transplantation. METHODS: Ten patients with an intra- and post-operative vasopressor-dependent systemic vasodilation were studied early after liver transplantation during sedation and mechanical ventilation...
