OBJECTIVES: Immunological dysregulation is now recognised as a major pathogenic event in sepsis. Stimulation of immune response and immuno-modulation are emerging approaches for the treatment of this disease. Defining the underlying immunological alterations in sepsis is important for the design of future therapies with immuno-modulatory drugs. METHODS: Clinical studies evaluating the immunological response in adult patients with Sepsis and published in PubMed were reviewed to identify features of immunological dysfunction...

BACKGROUND: Sepsis is still the leading cause of death in the intensive care unit. Our goal was to elucidate potential early differences in serum between survivors (SURV) and non-survivors (NON-SURV) on day 28. METHODS: We applied proteomic technology to serum samples of patients with sepsis and septic shock. Serum samples from 18 patients with sepsis and septic shock were obtained during the first 12 h after diagnosis of septic shock. Patients were grouped into SURV and NON-SURV on day 28...

With further improvements of the prehospital rescue systems, an increasing number of patients with extreme injuries such as traumatic hemipelvectomy are admitted to trauma centers alive. The accepted definition of traumatic hemipelvectomy is: unstable ligamentous or osseous hemipelvic injury with rupture of the pelvic neurovascular bundle (open or closed integuments). A review of the literature up to 1995 yielded on 48 surving cases with such an injury. A review of 2002 consecutive patients after pelvic fractures treated from 1972-1994 at the Medical School Hannover, resulted in the identification of 11 traumatic hemipelvectomies with four survivors...

Mild hypothermia (33 degrees C to 35.5 degrees C) is reported to improve oxygenation and survival in patients with lung failure (1). Although hypermetabolism may account for about 50% of the ventilatory demand in ARDS patients, the concept of reducing oxygen consumption (VO2) by lowering metabolic rate, has only recently gained attention (2). Our study was aimed to test whether mild hypothermia established by continuous veno-venous haemofiltration (CVVHF), could optimize values for oxygen kinetics in ARDS patients...
