Two sets of diagnostic criteria of paediatric multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) were published by Proulx in 1996 and by Goldstein in 2005. We hypothesized that this changes the epidemiology of MODS. Thus, we determined the epidemiology of MODS, according to these two sets of diagnostic criteria, we studied the intra- and inter-observer reproducibility of each set of diagnostic criteria, and we compared the association between cases of MODS at paediatric intensive care unit (PICU) entry, as diagnosed by each set of diagnostic criteria, and 90-day all-cause mortality. All consecutive patients admitted to the tertiary care PICU of Sainte-Justine Hospital, from April 21, 2009 to April 20, 2010, were considered eligible for enrolment into this prospective observational cohort study. The exclusion criteria were gestational age | 40 weeks, age | 3 days or | 18 years at PICU entry, pregnancy, admission immediately after delivery. No patients were censored. Daily monitoring using medical chart ended
STUDY OBJECTIVES: To validate a previously developed multisystem organ failure (MSOF) score with and without the addition of the lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) level as a predictor of survival to hospital discharge in patients with AIDS-related Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) and acute respiratory failure (ARF). DESIGN: Retrospective chart review between April 1, 1991, and September 30, 1996. SETTING: University-affiliated tertiary care center in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. PATIENTS: All patients with PCP-related ARF admitted to the ICU of St.
The team noted that 25% of patients remained sterile postoperatively.. Secondary pancreatic infections and contaminations were both diagnosed after a median of 3 weeks after disease onset.. Early/preoperative multisystem organ failure affecting 2 organs occurred in 35% of Group 1 vs 5% in Group 2, 12% in Group 3, and 7% in Group 4.. The investigators observed that mortality rates were 38%, 3%, 21%, and 7%, in the 4 groups, respectively.. Multiple logistic regression identified early/preoperative multisystem organ failure as a risk factor for secondary pancreatic infections in operatively treated sterile necrosis.. Extent of intrapancreatic necrosis was also a major risk factor to develop secondary pancreatic infections in operatively treated sterile necrosis.. However, the team observed that only early onset multisystem organ failure affecting 2 organs was the main risk factor for death.. Dr Raus team concludes, Early multisystem organ failure and extended intrapancreatic necrosis are risk ...

Causes of multiple organ failure - Help docs! Im trying to find out what causes multiple organ failure? Low blood supply. Low blood supply to the body will cause all organs to malfunction and fail if not corrected. Low blood supply can be caused by heart failure, low blood volume (bleeding, dehydration) and overwhelming infection, among others.
Viktoria Mayr and colleagues from Innsbruck Medical University collaborated with colleagues from other institutions in Austria to analyse the cause of death in 3700 patients admitted to intensive care units (ICUs). They analysed the causes of death in the ICU, in the hospital after discharge from the ICU, and one year after admission to the ICU.. Mayr et al.s results show that 47% of patients who died in the ICU died of multiple organ dysfunction. Acute and chronic multiple organ dysfunction were much more common causes of death in the ICU than single organ failure. In addition, patients with central nervous system failure had a 16.07% increased risk of dying while in the ICU and patients with cardiovascular failure had an almost 12% risk of dying - these were the main risk factors for death while in the ICU. Mayr et al.s results also show that malignant tumour disease caused over a third of hospital deaths in patients who had been discharged from the ICU, and one year after admission to the ...
Multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS), also often known as multiple organ failure (MOF) is the clinical manifestation of the tissue injury affecting various organs, whatever the mechanism, infectious or not, during very severe insults in particularly severe shock states. The objective of this chapter is to review the definition, epidemiology, pathophysiology and clinical aspects of MODS/MOF in septic patients as well as non-infectious Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (SIRS) patients. ...
The mortality rate of trauma is still very high and is increasing, according to the World Health Organization. It is predicted that post-traumatic mortality will be a major cause of death in 2020. Traffic injuries commonly seen in civilian trauma patients are the leading cause of pre-hospital death [1, 2]. Combat-related injuries, which are a special form of trauma, will also have higher mortality rates if the wounded do not receive timely battlefield surgery and subsequent treatments [3]. Both pro- and anti-inflammatory responses are involved in the post-traumatic pathologic process, and they increase the risk of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), sepsis, and multiple organ failure (MOF). Early prevention of the development of sepsis following trauma can reduce the risk of both sepsis and multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) and can improve the patients outcomes.. The greatest danger after hemorrhage in both civilian and combat-related injuries is sepsis. Sepsis 3.0 was put ...
In general terms, the systemic inflammatory response is an entirely normal host response to remove pathogens; however, if excessive, it may lead to damage to host tissues of lung and liver systems, multiple organ dysfunction syndrome, and a high mortality rate (3). Because it is well established that chemokines play a key role in controlling leukocyte recruitment and activation, many researchers have investigated the role of chemokine receptors during sepsis (17). Most of these studies have focused on CXC chemokine receptors, especially CXCR1 and CXCR2. Mice deficient in CXCR2 or treated with CXCR2-specific antibodies are protected from developing sepsis (14). Blockade of CXCR2 by antileukinate, a hexapeptide inhibitor of CXC-chemokine receptor, significantly attenuates lung damage (9). Moreover, pepducins derived from intracellular loops of CXCR1 and CXCR2 reverse the lethal consequence of sepsis, including disseminated intravascular coagulation and multiple organ failure in mice (8).. Recent ...
When we see the incidence of diabetes as related to BMI, it is much easier to understand why the results were what they were. Those with higher BMI also had a higher incidence of diabetes. In the cohort, almost one in four with a BMI greater than 30 had diabetes!. In the three years of follow-up, the risk of developing acute organ failure was similar across BMI - 0.9% of subjects with normal BMI, 0.8% of subjects with overweight BMI and 0.9% of subjects with obese BMI. This one piece of data is probably the most important in the findings - regardless of BMI, the risk of developing acute organ failure was virtually identical across the cohort. But, at the same time, again regardless of BMI, the strongest independent predictor of development of acute organ failure was the presence of diabetes - as a risk factor, it carried a three-fold risk (odds ratio 3.2; 95% CI 2.1 to 4.7). It didnt matter what a person weighed - what mattered was the presence of diabetes. The numbers here speak for ...

Reliability modelling is a process in which the distribution curve of system failure rate is fitted based on lifetime failure data generated in system life cycle test or system operation (Myers 2010). The failure rate distribution curve can reveal systems failure mechanism or the system-specific use phase, which may be conducive to the predication and control of failure, and carrying out an available predictive maintenance, reducing unexpected failures (Lin and Tseng 2005). Furthermore, the quantitative fitting of distribution curve is also the premise that reliability analysis, design, and test are effectively carried out. Therefore, it is important to analyze the variation trend of failure rate in a quantitative way for the purpose of reliability modelling.. At present, common distribution models for fitting failure rate include exponential distribution, normal distribution, lognormal distribution and Weibull distribution, etc. Among them, exponential distribution deals with the situation ...

Nuclear factor κB (NF-κB) plays a pivotal role in sepsis. Activation of NF-κB is initiated by the signal-induced ubiquitylation and subsequent degradation of inhibitors of kappa B (IκBs) primarily via activation of the IκB kinase (IKK). This study was designed to investigate the effects of IKK inhibition on sepsis-associated multiple organ dysfunction and/or injury (MOD) and to elucidate underlying signaling mechanisms in two different in vivo models: male C57BL/6 mice were subjected to either bacterial cell wall components [lipopolysaccharide and peptidoglycan (LPS/PepG)] or underwent cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) to induce sepsis-associated MOD. At 1 hour after LPS/PepG or CLP, mice were treated with the IKK inhibitor IKK 16 (1 mg/kg body weight). At 24 hours, parameters of organ dysfunction and/or injury were assessed in both models. Mice developed a significant impairment in systolic contractility (echocardiography), and significant increases in serum creatinine, serum alanine ...

Feeling MULTI-ORGAN FAILURE while using Augmentin? MULTI-ORGAN FAILURE Causes, Patient Concerns and Latest Treatments and Augmentin Reports and Side Effects.
Sepsis is the systemic inflammatory response to infection and can result in multiple organ dysfunction syndrome with associated high mortality, morbidity and health costs. Erythropoietin is a well-established treatment for the anaemia of renal failure due to its anti-apoptotic effects on red blood cells and their precursors. The extra-haemopoietic actions of erythropoietin include vasopressor, anti-apoptotic, cytoprotective and immunomodulating actions, all of which could prove beneficial in sepsis. Attenuation of organ dysfunction has been shown in several animal models and its vasopressor effects have been well characterised in laboratory and clinical settings. Clinical trials of erythropoietin in single organ disorders have suggested promising cytoprotective effects, and while no randomised trials have been performed in patients with sepsis, good quality data exist from studies on anaemia in critically ill patients, giving useful information of its pharmacokinetics and potential for harm. An
Primary viral pneumonia was present in 733 ICU patients with pandemic influenza A (H1N1) virus infection with severe respiratory failure. Macrolide-based treatment was administered to 190 (25.9 %) patients. Patients who received macrolides had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease more often, lower severity on admission (APACHE II score on ICU admission (13.1 ± 6.8 vs. 14.4 ± 7.4 points, p , 0.05), and multiple organ dysfunction syndrome less often (23.4 vs. 30.1 %, p , 0.05). Length of ICU stay in survivors was not significantly different in patients who received macrolides compared to patients who did not (10 (IQR 4-20) vs. 10 (IQR 5-20), p = 0.9). ICU mortality was 24.1 % (n = 177). Patients with macrolide-based treatment had lower ICU mortality in the univariate analysis (19.2 vs. 28.1 %, p = 0.02); however, a propensity score analysis showed no effect of macrolide-based treatment on ICU mortality (OR = 0.87; 95 % CI 0.55-1.37, p = 0.5). Moreover, the sensitivity analysis revealed very ...
Results There were 1732 ED patients and 130 deaths. Full compliance was independently associated with approximately two-thirds reduction in the odds of hospital mortality (adjusted OR of 0.30 (95% CI 0.19 to 0.47), which was similar in patients with and without organ failure. Among the 1379 patients with suspected infection without acute organ failure, there were 64 deaths, 15 (1.1%) in the full compliance group and 49 (3.6%) in the incomplete compliance group (mortality difference 2.5% (95% CI 1.6% to 3.3%)). Among 353 patients with organ failure, there were 66 deaths, 12 (3.4%) in the full compliance compared with 54 (15.3%) in the incomplete compliance group (mortality difference 11.9% (95% CI 8.5% to 15.3%)). Thus, there was a difference of 76 deaths between full and incomplete compliance groups, and 34 (45%) who benefited were those without acute organ failure. ...
Acute lung injury (ALI) is a major component of multiple organ dysfunction syndrome after hemorrhagic shock (HS) resulting from major surgery and trauma. The increased susceptibility in HS patients to the development of ALI suggests not yet fully elucidated mechanisms that enhance proinflammatory responses and/or suppress anti-inflammatory responses in the lung. Alveolar macrophages (AMϕ) are at the center of the pathogenesis of ALI after HS. We have previously reported that HS-activated polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMNs) interact with macrophages to influence inflammation progress. In this study, we explore a novel function of PMNs regulating AMϕ anti-inflammatory mechanisms involving autophagy. Using a mouse "two-hit" model of HS/resuscitation followed by intratracheal injection of muramyl dipeptide, we demonstrate that HS initiates high mobility group box 1/TLR4 signaling, which upregulates NOD2 expression in AMϕ and sensitizes them to subsequent NOD2 ligand muramyl dipeptide to augment ...
Worldwide, cardiac surgery is a common procedure requiring a large quantity of allogeneic blood products, which are associated with postoperative complications. Leukocytes present in blood products may play a role in these complications, which are referred to as transfusion-related immunomodulation (TRIM). Several randomized controlled trials (RCTs) in different settings investigated the effects of allogeneic leukocytes in red blood cells (RBCs). Cardiac surgery studies reported a reduction in postoperative infections and mortality in patients that received leukocyte-reduced RBCs compared with leukocyte-containing RBCs; this was mainly due to more deaths due to infections and multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) in the group that received leukocyte-containing RBCs. Patients with postoperative complications had higher concentrations of inflammatory mediators. These findings suggest that leukocyte-containing transfusion during cardiac surgery induces a second insult to the systemic ...

Cardiovascular failure is deterioration of cardiac function or vascular tone that results in impairment in end-organ perfusion. Collapse of the cardiovascular system can be either the end result of multisystem organ failure (MOF) or a manifestation of impaired cardiac function. In the acute phase of trauma, most shock is due to hemorrhage. Hemorrhagic shock leads to decreased preload or decreased right heart filling volumes, which is compensated by tachycardia and then may progress to hypotension and end-organ hypoperfusion. Cardiogenic shock alone stems from impaired myocardial contractility resulting in impairment of end organ perfusion with elevated cardiac filling pressures and low cardiac output.1 Unlike hemorrhagic shock, cardiogenic shock often does not respond simply to volume/blood product resuscitation and control of hemorrhage.2,3 Cardiogenic shock solely from impaired contractility is most often due to an acute myocardial infarction or acute on chronic heart failure.4 Therapy to ...
These data demonstrate that the IL-17 pathway does not have a major contribution to the inflammatory pathology leading to organ failure in fungal sepsis, and support the concept that the IL-17 pathway is protective during fungal sepsis. In addition, IL-17 deficiency does not appear to reflect a pure innate defect, since it did not result in loss of neutrophil recruitment and function during the first few hours of fungal sepsis. Furthermore, the lower TNF production in response to Candida in cells from IL-17RA-/- mice could contribute to susceptibility to disseminated candidiasis. ...

Sepsis and multi-organ failure are serious and frequent complications of trauma, and gut failure is an essential factor in the pathogenesis and progression of systemic inflammation that can culminate in multiple organ failure (MOF). A key pathological event in this process is the failure of the gastrointestinal barrier with resulting translocation of luminal substrates to the bloodstream and loco-regional lymph nodes. This is followed by the exacerbation of local and systemic immune responses. All these events contribute to the pathophysiological crosstalk between the gut, liver, and pancreas as well as distant organs such as the lung. The gut-lymph-lung axis is a direct anatomical link between the gut and the lung. Breakdown of the intestinal barrier leads to the release of nonbacterial, gut-derived factors into the mesenteric lymph, leading to distant organ damage (46, 47). Mesenteric lymph bypasses the portal circulation and consequently the secondary "firewall" provided by the liver. ...

Clinical systems failures, a contributing factor in family medicine claims, involve breakdowns in office systems and procedures, namely tracking and follow-up systems. Technical issues - such as problems with system interfaces, user errors, software or hardware glitches, and technology failures - also can play a role in clinical system failures.. Lapses or gaps in clinical systems can lead to oversights that may ultimately contribute to medical errors and allegations of malpractice, such as failure to diagnose or delay in diagnosis.. Because clinical system failures can compromise patient safety and increase liability, every family medicine practice needs adequate systems and processes for tracking test results, consults/referrals, and patient follow-up (regarding test results, missed/cancelled appointments, etc.).. Consider your own practice. Do you have protocols in place to ensure:. ...
Sepsis and septic shock and the delayed multi-organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) continue to be the major determinants for adverse outcome in critically ill patients, even though substantial advances in the field of supportive care could be identified recently. However, MODS still remains a serious threat. There is convincing evidence that MODS is essentially the clinical expression of profoundly dysregulated pathways of the innate and adaptive immune system, ultimately leading to organ failure and death.. This book contains the major part of the program of the Fourth International Symposium on Sepsis, SIRS, Immune Response , held in Hamburg in June 2005.. Once again, an international and multidisciplinary group of experts was gathered to discuss and review recent progress in the field of critical care with special emphasis on diagnosis, prevention and therapy of pathological alterations of the immune system in inflammation and sepsis ...
Sepsis and septic shock and the delayed multi-organ dysfunction syndrome continue to be the major determinants for adverse outcome in critically ill patients, even though substantial advances in the field of supportive therapy could be identified recently. This development was paralleled by a surge in the knowledge and understanding of the underlying immunological regulatory and counter-regulatory responses. The essence of these data resulted in new insights indicating strongly that MODS is the clinical expression of profoundly dysregulated immunological pathways. As a consequence, intensive care nowadays increasingly has to focus on the pathomechanisms and pathophysiology of MODS, taking into account the innate immune response, its means of diagnosis and its molecular (patho)biology.. This book contains the major part of the program of the Third International Symposium on Sepsis, SIRS, Immune Response. The aim of this conference was to gather an international and multidisciplinary panel of ...

Ischaemic injury to vital organs is common in critically ill patients, producing deleterious effects on other organ systems. This is particularly common in the gut, with intestinal hypoperfusion inducing systemic inflammation and multiorgan organ dysfunction syndrome.
Contrary to ethicists [21, 22, 31], many intensivists clearly distinguish between withholding and withdrawal decisions, with the former being perceived as more "passive" [3, 4, 10, 32, 33]. Physicians unwillingness to withdraw life-sustaining therapy has been previously associated with religion, culture, experience, and gender [14, 33-37]. Rather than focusing on differences between centers, our study aimed to identify the conditions that specifically led to withdraw and/or withhold therapy. By establishing a three-level hierarchy of decisions ("stop" , "do not increase" , "do not start"), we demonstrated that more "active" limitations involved patients with acute organ failures, high severity indexes, and great dependence on life-sustaining therapy. Brain-injured patients were also more likely to undergo a withdrawal procedure, whereas patients with chronic respiratory disease, pre-existing disability affecting autonomy or cognition, and/or respiratory failure on admission had treatment ...
