The impact of a multidisciplinary approach on caring for ventilator-dependent patients. (1/1550)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the clinical and financial outcomes of a highly structured multidisciplinary care model for patients in an intensive care unit (ICU) who require prolonged mechanical ventilation. The structured model outcomes (protocol group) are compared with the preprotocol outcomes. DESIGN: Descriptive study with financial analysis. SETTING: A twelve-bed medical-surgical ICU in a non-teaching tertiary referral center in Ogden, Utah. STUDY PARTICIPANTS: During a 54 month period, 469 consecutive intensive care patients requiring mechanical ventilation for longer than 72 hours who did not meet exclusion criteria were studied. INTERVENTIONS: A multidisciplinary team was formed to coordinate the care of ventilator-dependent patients. Care was integrated by daily collaborative bedside rounds, monthly meetings, and implementation of numerous guidelines and protocols. Patients were followed from the time of ICU admission until the day of hospital discharge. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Patients were assigned APACHE II scores on admission to the ICU, and were divided into eight diagnostic categories. ICU length of stay, hospital length of stay, costs, charges, reimbursement, and in-hospital mortality were measured. RESULTS: Mortality in the preprotocol and protocol group, after adjustment for APACHE II scores, remained statistically unchanged (21-23%). After we implemented the new care model, we demonstrated significant decreases in the mean survivor's ICU length of stay (19.8 days to 14.7 days, P= 0.001), hospital length of stay (34.6 days to 25.9 days, P=0.001), charges (US$102500 to US$78500, P=0.001), and costs (US$71900 to US$58000, P=0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Implementation of a structured multidisciplinary care model to care for a heterogeneous population of ventilator-dependent ICU patients was associated with significant reductions in ICU and hospital lengths of stay, charges, and costs. Mortality rates were unaffected.  (+info)

Outcome for cancer patients requiring mechanical ventilation. (2/1550)

PURPOSE: To describe hospital survival for cancer patients who require mechanical ventilation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A prospective, multicenter observational study was performed at five academic tertiary care hospitals. Demographic and clinical variables were obtained on consecutive cancer patients at initiation of mechanical ventilation, and information on vital status at hospital discharge was acquired. RESULTS: Our analysis was based on 782 adult cancer patients who met predetermined inclusion criteria. The overall observed hospital mortality was 76%, with no statistically significant differences among the five study centers. Seven variables (intubation after 24 hours, leukemia, progression or recurrence of cancer, allogeneic bone marrow transplantation, cardiac arrhythmias, presence of disseminated intravascular coagulation, and need for vasopressor therapy) were associated with an increased risk of death, whereas prior surgery with curative intent was protective. The predictive model based on these variables had an area under the receiver operating characteristic curve of 0.736, with Hosmer-Lemeshow goodness-of-fit statistics of 7.19; P = .52. CONCLUSION: This model can be used to estimate the probability of hospital survival for classes of adult cancer patients who require mechanical ventilation and can help to guide physicians, patients, and families in deciding goals and direction of treatment. Prospective independent validation in different medical settings is warranted.  (+info)

Effect of intensive therapy for heart failure on the vasodilator response to exercise. (3/1550)

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of the study was to evaluate the lower extremity vascular responsiveness to metabolic stimuli in patients with heart failure and to determine whether these responses improve acutely after intensive medical therapy. BACKGROUND: Metabolic regulation of vascular tone is an important determinant of blood flow, and may be abnormal in heart failure. METHODS: The leg blood flow responses were measured in 11 patients with nonedematous class III-IV heart failure before and after inpatient medical therapy and in 10 normal subjects. Venous occlusion plethysmography was used to measure peak blood flow and total hyperemia in the calf after arterial occlusion and also after isotonic ankle exercise. Measurements were repeated following short-term inpatient treatment with vasodilators and diuretics administered to decrease right atrial pressure (18+/-2 to 7+/-1 mm Hg), pulmonary wedge pressure (32+/-3 to 15+/-2 mm Hg), and systemic vascular resistance (1581+/-200 to 938+/-63, all p < 0.02). RESULTS: Leg blood flow at rest, after exercise, and during reactive hyperemia was less in heart failure patients than in control subjects. Resting leg blood flow did not increase significantly after medical therapy, but peak flow after the high level of exercise increased by 59% (p = 0.009). Total hyperemic volume in the recovery period increased by 73% (p = 0.03). Similarly, the peak leg blood flow response to ischemia increased by 88% (p = 0.04), whereas hyperemic volume rose by 98% (p = 0.1). CONCLUSIONS: The calf blood flow responses to metabolic stimuli are blunted in patients with severe heart failure, and improve rapidly with intensive medical therapy.  (+info)

Randomised controlled trial of aminophylline for severe acute asthma. (4/1550)

OBJECTIVES: To determine whether children with severe acute asthma treated with large doses of inhaled salbutamol, inhaled ipratropium, and intravenous steroids are conferred any further benefits by the addition of aminophylline given intravenously. STUDY DESIGN: Randomised, double blind, placebo controlled trial of 163 children admitted to hospital with asthma who were unresponsive to nebulised salbutamol. RESULTS: The placebo and treatment groups of children were similar at baseline. The 48 children in the aminophylline group had a greater improvement in spirometry at six hours and a higher oxygen saturation in the first 30 hours. Five subjects in the placebo group were intubated and ventilated after enrollment compared with none in the aminophylline group. CONCLUSIONS: Aminophylline continues to have a place in the management of severe acute asthma in children unresponsive to initial treatment.  (+info)

Gastric tonometry: in vivo comparison of saline and air tonometry in patients with cardiogenic shock. (5/1550)

Measurement of gastric intramucosal pH (pHi) has been advocated to assess gastric perfusion. Regional PCO2 (rPCO2) values are measured using saline tonometry (rsPCO2) and more recently using air tonometry (raPCO2). We compared 237 measurements of saline and air tonometry in 19 consecutive, severely ill patients (mean age 59 (range 31-76) yr, 19 males, APACHE II 22 +/- 7) with cardiogenic shock. Equilibration period was set to 90 min. Nineteen independent paired samples of mean raPCO2 and mean rsPCO2 of each patient showed good correlation (r = 0.93, P < 0.001). Mean raPCO2 was 6.5 (1.8) kPa and mean rsPCO2 6.8 (2.4) kPa. PCO2 measured by saline was significantly higher than that measured by air (P < 0.05). Bland and Altman analysis showed a bias (mean rsPCO2-mean raPCO2) of 0.3 kPa and a precision of 1.2 kPa. Agreement between the two methods decreased with increasing rPCO2 concentrations. Although air tonometry of rPCO2 is a promising technique, a systematic disagreement with saline tonometry at high rPCO2 values requires further investigation and cautious interpretation of these values.  (+info)

Withdrawal and limitation of life support in paediatric intensive care. (6/1550)

OBJECTIVES: To compare the modes of death and factors leading to withdrawal or limitation of life support in a paediatric intensive care unit (PICU) in a developing country. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of all children (< 12 years) dying in the PICU from January 1995 to December 1995 and January 1997 to June 1998 (n = 148). RESULTS: The main mode of death was by limitation of treatment in 68 of 148 patients, failure of active treatment including cardiopulmonary resuscitation in 61, brain death in 12, and withdrawal of life support with removal of endotracheal tube in seven. There was no significant variation in the proportion of limitation of treatment, failure of active treatment, and brain death between the two periods; however, there was an increase in withdrawal of life support from 0% in 1995 to 8% in 1997-98. Justification for limitation was based predominantly on expectation of imminent death (71 of 75). Ethnic variability was noted among the 14 of 21 patients who refused withdrawal. Discussions for care restrictions were initiated almost exclusively by paediatricians (70 of 75). Diagnostic uncertainty (36% v 4.6%) and presentation as an acute illness were associated with the use of active treatment. CONCLUSIONS: Limitation of treatment is the most common mode of death in a developing country's PICU and active withdrawal is still not widely practised. Paediatricians in developing countries are becoming more proactive in managing death and dying but have to consider sociocultural and religious factors when making such decisions.  (+info)

Pharmacokinetics of a clarithromycin suspension administered via nasogastric tube to seriously ill patients. (7/1550)

The pharmacokinetics of clarithromycin and its 14-(R)-hydroxylated metabolite were studied on two separate occasions after nasogastric administration of 500 mg of a clarithromycin suspension to 16 seriously ill adults in an intensive care unit. The clarithromycin suspension appeared to be adequately absorbed, and the pharmacokinetics of neither clarithromycin nor 14-(R)-hydroxyclarithromycin differed significantly between the two dosing periods. No substantial differences in pharmacokinetics were observed compared to previously published studies of other adult populations. Minimal intrapatient variability of pharmacokinetic parameters was observed in these seriously ill patients.  (+info)

Adrenal insufficiency in septic shock. (8/1550)

BACKGROUND: Functional adrenal insufficiency has been documented in critically ill adults. OBJECTIVE: To document the incidence of adrenal insufficiency in children with septic shock, and to evaluate its effect on catecholamine requirements, duration of intensive care, and mortality. SETTING: Sixteen-bed paediatric intensive care unit in a university hospital. METHODS: Thirty three children with septic shock were enrolled. Adrenal function was assessed by the maximum cortisol response after synthetic adrenocorticotropin stimulation (short Synacthen test). Insufficiency was defined as a post-Synacthen cortisol increment < 200 nmol/l. RESULTS: Overall mortality was 33%. The incidence of adrenal insufficiency was 52% and children with adrenal insufficiency were significantly older and tended to have higher paediatric risk of mortality scores. They also required higher dose vasopressors for haemodynamic stability. In the survivor group, those with adrenal insufficiency needed a longer period of inotropic support than those with normal function (median, 3 v 2 days), but there was no significant difference in duration of ventilation (median, 4 days for each group) or length of stay (median, 5 v 4 days). Mortality was not significantly greater in children with adrenal insufficiency than in those with adequate adrenal function (6 of 17 v 5 of 16, respectively). CONCLUSION: Adrenal insufficiency is common in children with septic shock. It is associated with an increased vasopressor requirement and duration of shock.  (+info)

Of 239 intensive care units in the UK in January 2002, 177 were contributing to the case mix programme. Of these, 92 units participated in our study, together with the three high dependency units. Data from the case mix programme showed that participating and non-participating units were similar in type, size, affiliation, overall percentage of admissions potentially eligible for the study (3.9 v 3.2%), acute physiology scores for COPD,9 and survival in intensive care for potentially eligible admissions. We recruited 832 patients (724 from intensive care and 108 from high dependency). In intensive care units taking part in the case mix programme there were no differences between the 648 patients recruited to our study and the 996 not recruited in terms of age (z test P=0.49), acute physiology score (z test P=0.96), or survival in intensive care (χ2 0.77, P=0.38).. Survival rates were 80.9% (95% confidence interval 78.1% to 83.5%) at discharge from intensive care or high dependency, 70.2% (67.0% ...
Introduction. HIGH DEPENDENCY CARE OF THE NEW BORN (CASE HISTORY) PREDISPOSING CAUSES OF NECROTISING ENTEROCOLITIS Registration NO: 100252125 Module NO : SNM3115 Unit Leader : Angela Thurlby Word Count : 2022 The following discussion will analyse the care of a baby who I have recently looked after in the high dependency who developed necrotising entero colitis(NEC) and consequently had to be re admitted to the NICU. According to Sankaran (2004) NEC is an inflammatory disease of the bowel, predominantly affecting premature infants but it sometimes occurs in cohorts. Whilst caring for the baby he became ill with a profound bradycardia and on turning him over he looked pale, cyanosed with a mottled skin and distended abdomen. He weighed only 1050g, and had previously been moved from ITU to high dependency because he was tolerating full feeds of expressed breast milk (EBM). According to Boxwell (2010) NEC is characterised by transmural intestinal inflammation, ischaemia, necrosis and sometimes ...

DINNINGTON Town’s teenage keeper Pavels Matuejeus is out of Rotherham General Hospital’s high dependency unit, and will not lose his kidney.
Brain has a continuous demand for energy that is met by oxidative metabolism of oxygen and glucose. This demand is compromised in the injured brain and if the inadequate supply persists it will lead to permanent tissue damage. Zero values of cerebral glucose have been associated with infarction and poor neurological outcome. Furthermore, hyperglycemia is common in patients with neurological insults and associated with poor outcome. Intensive insulin therapy (IIT) to control blood glucose has been suggested and used in neurointensive care with conflicting results. This review covers the studies reporting on monitoring of cerebral glucose with microdialysis in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI), subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) and ischemic stroke. Studies investigating IIT are also discussed. Available data suggest that low cerebral glucose in patients with TBI and SAH provides valuable information on development of secondary ischemia and has been correlated with worse outcome. There is also ...

Quality information also exists on a per-pixel basis as well. There are uncertainty values associated with the flux in each pixel, and there are also bitmasks recording information about of the quality of each pixel. HDUs 1 to 3 of the spPlate files store the error and mask information. HDU1 stores the inverse variance of the uncertainties (one over sigma-squared, that is). This quantity may be used, for example, in model fits to the spectra. It is set to zero for pixels that should be ignored entirely (another way of thinking about it is that they have infinite error).. HDU2 and HDU3 store the pixel mask information. These images yield a bitmask for each pixel, in particular the SPPIXMASK bitmask. Since the final spectrum is a combination of individual exposures, it may be that some bits were flagged in some exposures but not in others. HDU2 is the and mask, which lists all the bits that were set for that pixel in all exposures. HDU3 is the or mask, which lists all the bits that were set ...

The major finding of the study is that deliberate hyperventilation did not influence the ICU outcome of brain injury patients. The mean age of patients in this study was 41.3, a little higher compared to a study by Muizelaar et al., but very similar to a study published from Australia and New Zealand (7, 9). Patients with traumatic brain injury are often male young adults (9, 10). There was male preponderance in the present study also. The mean ICU length of stay was 10.5 days in the present study, which was longer than the 3 days reported in a previous study (11). Patients in the previous study were discharged from the ICU to a high dependency unit (HDU). The study hospital does not have a HDU; hence these patients were retained in the ICU for longer time. The mean GCS on admission was 6.3 in the present study, which is similar to a report by Schreiber et al. (12). This mean GCS score would be classified as severe head injury according to Thornhill et al. (13). These authors reported that ...
In another study on those with LBP, 59.5% had more than five years of nursing experience and another 12% had more than 20 years nursing experience [7]. Findings from this study indicate that the nurses working in Intensive Care Unit, ICU (29.1%) and High Dependency Unit, HDU (20.1%) were more likely to report current back pain compared to other units. In both ICU and HDU, most patients are usually dependent, frail and need more help from nurses for their daily activities and transfer compared to those in other wards [9]. Nurses who are working in ICU experienced an increased rate of LBP compared with other CCUs. Similar results were obtained in 65 ICU in 22 South Korean hospitals and among 1345 subjects where 90.3% had back pain [10]. In addition, Nurses with 2-4 years of working experiences in ICU had the greatest probability of back pain and needed treatment. Although most hospitals allow patients family to stay in the ward help to take care of the patient, the availability of family members ...
Results Thirty-four of 234 subjects (14.5%) had clinical evidence of PPC.

Greg feared his lymphoma had returned when he found a lump on his neck. He knew he would have to face weeks of chemotherapy, but what he had not been prepared for was the battle he was about to have against sepsis - a potentially life-threatening complication of an infection which can lead to tissue damage and organ failure.. Gregs immune system was so low following his chemotherapy that as soon as he picked up an infection it developed into sepsis. Luckily for Greg, the team on ward 33 at James Cook were fast to spot the signs and responded immediately.. I was on my last run of chemo and I just got really tired. I did not want to do anything else but sleep, said Greg, 26, of Great Ayton. The next thing I knew I was waking up and everyone was around me and I panicked and thought what was wrong.. I had heard of sepsis before but I was just too out of it at the time to know what is happening. My heart function had dropped right down so the only option was to put me on the high dependency unit ...

Background: There has been an identified need for greater patient and family member involvement in healthcare. This is particularly relevant in an intensive care unit (ICU), as the family provides a key communicative and practical link between patient and clinician. Family members have been deemed a positive beneficial influence on ICU care and recovery processes, yet they themselves are often emotionally affected after discharge. There has been no standardised evidenced-based approach which explores research on family member involvement and the range and quality of contributions remain unclear. This project will undertake a systematic review to assess the evidence base for interventions designed to promote patient and family member involvement in adult intensive care settings and develop a comprehensive typology of interventions for use by clinicians, patients and carers. Methods: The following databases will be searched without date restriction: MEDLINE, EMBASE and CINAHL, as well as the ...
