TY - JOUR. T1 - Effect of Late-Onset Sepsis on Energy Expenditure in Extremely Premature Infants. AU - Torine, Ilana J.. AU - Denne, Scott C.. AU - Wright-Coltart, Shirley. AU - Leitch, Catherine. PY - 2007/5. Y1 - 2007/5. N2 - The purpose of this study was to compare total energy expenditure (TEE) in extremely premature infants during and after an episode of sepsis. We hypothesized that TEE in the sepsis group (SEP) would be higher during the septic period and higher than an age-matched control group (CTL). We further hypothesized that the TEE of the SEP group during the recovery period would be similar to that of the CTL group. The doubly labeled water method was used to determine TEE in both groups. Infant characteristics were as follows: SEP group, n = 10, gestation = 26 ± 1 wk, birth weight = 854 ± 218 g; CTL group, n = 10, gestation = 26 ± 1 wk, birth weight = 880 ± 158 g. TEE of the SEP group during the septic period was significantly greater than during the recovery period (96 ± 25 ...
Sepsis remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality among neonates. The risk factors and clinical outcomes of sepsis are poorly understood. Most cases of sepsis occurred mostly within the first week of newborns life related to perinatal risk factors. Late onset sepsis is related to hospital acquired infections which is seen after seven days of age. The purpose of this study was to assess clinical outcome and risk factors of neonatal sepsis in Felege Hiwot referral hospital Bahir Dar, North West Ethiopia. Among the total 225 neonatal charts reviewed; 164 (72.9%) were age less than or equal to 7 days, and 144 (64%) were males. About 29 (12.9%) neonates were with irregular respiratory signs and 40 (17.8%) had meconium aspiration syndrome. Regarding the clinical outcome of neonatal sepsis: 189 (84%) were improved after treatment, 9 (4%) were died and 13 (5.8%) referred to other organizations for further treatment. Respiratory distress syndrome [AOR = 0.258 (0.072-0.930)] and meconium aspiration syndrome

It has been reported that thrombocytopenia is linked to mortality in patients with severe sepsis. However, the mechanism of thrombocytopenia in sepsis is unknown. We hypothesized that inflammatory cytokines and microRNAs (miRNAs) are not only involved in the pathogenesis of sepsis, but also are correlated with
By Christopher Cheney. Emergency medical service screening for sepsis speeds administration of the Surviving Sepsis Campaign 3-hour bundle of treatment, new research shows.. On an annual basis, sepsis affects about 1.7 million American adults and the infection is linked to more than 250,000 deaths. Timely application of the 3-hour bundle has been associated with reduced mortality.. In the new research, EMS crews conducted sepsis screening of patients before emergency department arrival, a co-author of the study told HealthLeaders.. We implemented a standard operating procedure for sepsis screening-seven questions for the emergency department RN to ask EMS in any adult patients excluding trauma. When sepsis was suspected, the radio RN would notify the charge nurse to help get them into a room. The key takeaways are that implementing a sepsis screening tool for EMS to use is feasible and it helps to expedite care in these patients, said Megan Rech, PharmD, MS, an emergency medicine clinical ...
During early sepsis, cortisol levels (nmol/l) were higher in survivors than non-survivors (761 ± 120 vs 356 ± 78, P , 0.02) and they decreased in survivors (P , 0.009) during late sepsis. During early sepsis, DHEAS levels (% of age-matched normal levels) were significantly higher in survivors than non-survivors (80± 21 vs 18 ± 5, P , 0.009). They decreased in survivors (P = 0.0002) but remained low in non-survivors during late sepsis. In contrast, during early sepsis, DHEA levels (% of age-matched normal levels) were significantly elevated in survivors compared to non-survivors (289 ± 46 vs 123 ± 31, P , 0.007). They decreased in survivors (P = 0.002) but increased in non-survivors (P , 0.04) during late sepsis. ACTH levels did not significantly change. ...
Several factors contribute to the high mortality attributed to severe infections in resource-limited settings. While improvements in survival and processes of care have been made in high-income settings among patients with severe conditions, such as sepsis, guidelines necessary for achieving these improvements may lack applicability or have not been tested in resource-limited settings. The World Health Organizations recent publication of the Integrated Management of Adolescent and Adult Illness District Clinician Manual provides details on how to optimize management of severely ill, hospitalized patients in such settings, including specific guidance on the management of patients with septic shock and respiratory failure without shock. This manuscript provides the context, process and underpinnings of these sepsis guidelines. In light of the current deficits in care and the limitations associated with these guidelines, the authors propose implementing these standardized best practice guidelines while
Learning Objectives: The incidence of sepsis on the general wards is unknown in Wales, whilst sepsis accounts for 30% of all admissions to the ICUs. The introduction of the National Early Warning Score and the Sepsis Screening Tool makes it possible to estimate the true incidence. We performed a feasibility pilot study to estimate the incidence of sepsis and severe sepsis on the general wards. Methods: 1 day point prevalence study conducted in 4 hospitals (2 tertiary centres and 2 university affiliated general hospitals) on all general and obstetric wards using an anonymised pro-forma data collection sheet. Information was obtained by medical students who were trained in recognising the signs of sepsis. All patients with NEWS 3 or above were screened. Sepsis and severe sepsis was defined according to SSC criteria. Demographics, co-morbidities and significant drug therapy data was collected along with data on severity of sepsis, organ dysfunction and applied treatment. Results: 393 patients ...
Neonatal sepsis is a type of neonatal infection and specifically refers to the presence in a newborn baby of a bacterial blood stream infection (BSI) (such as meningitis, pneumonia, pyelonephritis, or gastroenteritis) in the setting of fever. Older textbooks may refer to neonatal sepsis as sepsis neonatorum. Criteria with regards to hemodynamic compromise or respiratory failure are not useful clinically because these symptoms often do not arise in neonates until death is imminent and unpreventable. Neonatal sepsis is divided into two categories: early-onset sepsis (EOS) and late-onset sepsis (LOS). EOS refers to sepsis presenting in the first 7 days of life (although some refer to EOS as within the first 72 hours of life), with LOS referring to presentation of sepsis after 7 days (or 72 hours, depending on the system used). neonatal sepsis is the single most important cause of neonatal death in hospital as well as community in developing country. It is difficult to clinically exclude sepsis in ...
Whether past history of solid stage I/II inactive cancer has an impact on 28-day mortality of sepsis remains unclear. We aimed to determine the impact of history of stage I or II solid tumor malignancy in complete remission the last 3 years on sepsis outcome. Using the database of the Hellenic Sepsis Study Group from 1553 patients with sepsis admitted in the ICU, 83 patients with sepsis by Sepsis-3 definition with past-history of stage I/II inactive solid malignancy the last 3 years were depicted. A comparator group of 83 patients fully matched for age, severity, type of infection and comorbidities was selected by propensity score matching. Mortality after 28 days was 37.3% in the comparator group and 54.2% in the solid tumor stage I/II group (odds ratio for death 1.98; p: 0.030). Following step-wise forward Cox regression analysis, septic shock (hazard ratio 1.80), acute renal injury (hazard ratio 2.06), history of coronary heart disease (hazard ratio 0.36) and history of stage I/II solid tumor
Background : The mortality on sepsis is still high. Its because of delayed ofthe treatment resulted from the diagnosis of sepsis estabilished more frequently imprecise. The inflammatory makers as c reactive protein and leucocyte apparently have high sensitivity and specifity where do contemn whereas blood culture examination required so long time and the result of culture often negatively. Research on Procalcitonin (PCT) formering have important of the role for the establishment diagnosis of sepsis because its utilized as sepsis marker and in reference to severity sepsisdegree . Objective: To determine whether procalcitonin can be used as sepsis marker and severity of sepsis. Method : Patients were assigned as 2 groups, sepsis and without sepsis with their consisting of 21 samples respectively. In the sepsis subgroup separated as sepsis only (8 samples), severe sepsis (6 samples) and sepsis shock (7 samples). All of them were examined by procalcitonin, C reactive protein, blood culture and ...

Severe sepsis, defined as sepsis associated with acute organ dysfunction, remains a serious medical problem worldwide. In the United States alone, approximately 750,000 cases of severe sepsis occur each year, with the mortality rate ranging between 30% and 50% for severe sepsis patients with concomitant organ dysfunction. As the population ages, these numbers are expected to increase. The pathophysiology of severe sepsis is thought to involve the activation of a variety of inflammatory and procoagulant host responses to infection, which if unchecked, can lead to diffuse endovascular injury, multi-organ dysfunction, and ultimately death.. The host response to infection with microorganism and microorganism-derived molecules is characterized by the synthesis and release of pro-inflammatory cytokines such as tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) and interleukins 1, 6 and 8 (IL-1, IL-6, and IL-8), by inflammatory cells, and by other markers of inflammation such as C-reactive protein. Inflammatory ...

Abstract: The goal of this study was to investigate the role of procalcitonin (PCT) in diagnosis of neonatal sepsis and its correlation with C-Reactive Protein (CRP). One hundred and seventeen neonates with the gestational age ≥35 weeks with clinically suspected diagnosis of neonatal sepsis were studied during one year from 2007 in Tabriz Children`s Hospital. Conventional sepsis workup was done in all cases and the diagnosis of neonatal sepsis was proved based on the results of blood culture. The serum procalcitonin was measured by quantitative Chemo-luminance methods and the results were compared with CRP levels between the neonates with and without proven sepsis. The results showed among in 117 neonates with suspected sepsis 27 (23.1%) cases have positive blood culture (proven sepsis). The mean levels of PCT in neonates with and without proven sepsis was 4.42 ±6.66 vs. 2.06 ±4.03 ng mL-1 and CRP 33.98 ±36.81 vs. 12.30 ±20.42 mg L-1 were significantly higher in neonates with proven sepsis ...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the prognostic significance of serum soluble triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells-1 (sTREM-1), procalcitonin (PCT), N-terminal probrain natriuretic peptide (NT-pro-BNP), C-reactive protein (CRP), cytokines, and clinical severity scores in patients with sepsis.. METHODS: A total of 102 patients with sepsis were divided into survival group (n = 60) and nonsurvival group (n = 42) based on 28-day mortality. Serum levels of biomarkers and cytokines were measured on days 1, 3, and 5 after admission to an ICU, meanwhile the acute physiology and chronic health evaluation II (APACHE II) and sequential organ failure assessment (SOFA) scores were calculated.. RESULTS: Serum sTREM-1, PCT, and IL-6 levels of patients in the nonsurvival group were significantly higher than those in the survival group on day 1 (P , 0.01). The area under a ROC curve for the prediction of 28 day mortality was 0.792 for PCT, 0.856 for sTREM-1, 0.953 for SOFA score, and 0.923 for APACHE II ...

DHR Danaher Corporation Beckman Coulter launches DxH 690T mid-volume hematology analyzer, featuring the Early Sepsis Indicator in U.S. market
Introduction Right ventricular (RV) myocardial dysfunction is a common feature in septic shock. It can worsen outcome, but the etiology is poorly understood. Pulmonary artery hypertension (PAH) plays a part in the pathogenesis of the right heart dysfunction in sepsis but its importance is unknown. In pigs, PAH in sepsis is substantial and the translational value of porcine sepsis models therefore questioned. We hypothesized that porcine sepsis causes a myocardial inflammatory response which leads to myocardial dysfunction independent of PAH. Materials and methods Sepsis was induced by Escherichia coli-infusion in 10 pigs resulting in PAH and increased right ventricular pressure (RVP). The same degree of RVP was achieved by external pulmonary artery banding (PAB) in a consecutive series of 6 animals. Results Sepsis, but not PAB, led to increase in endothelial damage marker PAI-1 and cytokines TNF and IL-6 (all p,0.05) in plasma. In myocardium, TNF and IL-6 were significantly elevated in sepsis, ...

SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2017, vol.107, n.8, pp.674-678. ISSN 2078-5135. http://dx.doi.org/10.7196/samj.2017.v107i8.11019.. BACKGROUND. Currently there is little information on the identification, management and outcomes of patients with sepsis in developing countries. Simple cost-effective measures such as accurate identification of patients with sepsis and early antibiotic administration are achievable targets, within reach without having to make use of unsustainable protocols constructed in developed countries. OBJECTIVES. To assess the ability of clinicians at a district-level hospital to identify and manage sepsis, and to assess patient outcome in terms ...
Sepsis, as defined by the Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC) in 2012,[1] is the presence of a probable or documented infection together with systemic manifestations of an infection.. In 2004, the World Health Organization[2] listed three infective causes, namely lower respiratory tract infection, diarrhoeal disease and tuberculosis, on their top ten list of causes of death, which is similar to mortality reports documented in the 2013 Western Cape Mortality Profile.[3]This highlights the fact that sepsis and its sequelae - which were originally caused by an infection - are major contributors to the local and global burden of disease.. To date there are virtually no accurate data on the incidence and prevalence of or mortality rates for sepsis, severe sepsis and septic shock in developing countries. Mortality rates have been reported to be as high as 30% for sepsis, 40% for severe sepsis and 80% for septic shock[4-6] in developed countries. Septic shock is still the leading cause of death in ...

The role of regulatory T cells (Tregs) in bacterial sepsis remains controversial because antibody-mediated depletion experiments gave conflicting results. induction, Treg-depleted and control rodents demonstrated solid irritation similarly, resistant cell migration into the peritoneum and microbial dissemination. During the initial 36 l of disease success was not really motivated by Treg-depletion. Afterwards, nevertheless, just Treg-competent pets retrieved from the slander. We deduce that the suppressive capability of Tregs is certainly not really enough to control overpowering irritation and early fatality, but is certainly a must for the recovery from serious sepsis. Launch Sepsis continues to be a main trigger of loss of life in strenuous treatment products world-wide [1]. Specifically postoperatively obtained stomach sepsis credited to digestive tract loss is certainly still linked with a extremely high lethality of about 60% [2]. During the last years, raising interest provides been ...

We studied changes in α1-adrenergic receptors in human liver plasma membranes during intraabdominal sepsis using [3H]prazosin as a radioligand. Human liver tissues were obtained from nonseptic patients undergoing elective abdominal surgery (control group) and from patients with sepsis requiring laparotomy as a therapeutic measure (septic group). Septic patients were further divided into three subgroups on the basis of septic severity scores: mild sepsis (,21), moderate sepsis (22 to 32) and severe sepsis (,33). Plasma membranes were prepared by means of sucrose gradient centrifugation and were purified fivefold on the basis of the enrichment of the activity of the marker enzyme, 5′-nucleotidase. [3H]prazosin-binding studies show that the maximal binding capacity was increased by 49.6% (p ,0.01) in mild sepsis, relatively unchanged in moderate sepsis and decreased by 33.4% (p , 0.05) in severe sepsis (in femtomoles per milligram: 193.7 ± 5.7 for control [n = 6], 289.8 ± 23.4 for mild sepsis ...

BACKGROUND: Sepsis is a leading cause of death, but evidence suggests that early recognition and prompt intervention can save lives. In 2005 Houston Methodist Hospital prioritized sepsis detection and management in its ICU. In late 2007, because of marginal effects on sepsis death rates, the focus shifted to designing a program that would be readily used by nurses and ensure early recognition of patients showing signs suspicious for sepsis, as well as the institution of prompt, evidence-based interventions to diagnose and treat it. METHODS: The intervention had four components: organizational commitment and data-based leadership; development and integration of an early sepsis screening tool into the electronic health record; creation of screening and response protocols; and education and training of nurses. Twice-daily screening of patients on targeted units was conducted by bedside nurses; nurse practitioners initiated definitive treatment as indicated. Evaluation focused on extent of implementation,

What is sepsis? Sepsis is a life threatening condition that arises when the bodys response to an infection injures its own tissues and organs. Sepsis leads to shock, multiple organ failure and death especially if not recognized early and treated promptly. Sepsis is caused by the way the body responds to germs, such as bacteria, getting into your body. The infection may have started anywhere in a sufferers body, and may be only in one part of the body or it may be widespread. Sepsis can occur following chest or water infections, problems in the abdomen like burst ulcers, or simple skin injuries like cuts and bites. Sepsis can be caused by a huge variety of different bugs, most cases being caused by common bacteria which we all come into contact with every day without them making us ill. Sometimes, though, the body responds abnormally to these infections, and causes sepsis. Different types of sepsis Many people can have mild sepsis which can make them feel ill but doesnt require treatment in ...

The present review is aimed at elucidating the neonatal sepsis redox cycle - the cascade of inflammatory and redox events involved in the pathogenesis of sepsis in neonates. While adult and neonatal sepses share some common features, there are some substantial differences: higher mortality rates occur in adult sepsis and worse long-term effects are evident in neonatal sepsis survivors. Such epidemiological data may be explained by the lower ability of IL6 and IL8 to activate NF-κB-regulated transcription in neonatal sepsis in comparison to TNF-α, which is involved in the mechanisms of adult sepsis. The activation of NF-κB in neonatal sepsis is further promoted by hydrogen peroxide and results in mitochondrial dysfunction and energy failure as septic neonates experience decreased O2 consumption as well as lower heat production and body temperature in comparison to healthy peers. In neonates, specific organs that are still under development are vulnerable to sepsis-provoked stress, which may lead to
Project: Application of a Severe Sepsis Electronic Health Record Integrated Screening Tool and Management Bundle (eASSIST-M) Study. Study Type: Prospective Cohort Outcomes Study. Background: Early recognition of severe sepsis is critical for the institution of goal- directed therapy and for improving patient outcomes. Barriers to early recognition include the lack of standardized tools to identify children with severe sepsis. The investigators will study the potential impact of applying a novel Pediatric Severe Sepsis Screening Tool (PSSST) integrated with the Electronic Health Record (EHR) to facilitate earlier detection and effective management of severe sepsis.. Population: Patients between the ages 1 month and 18 years admitted to the hospital or presenting to the Emergency Department (ED) with clinical signs of Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (SIRS).. Primary Hypothesis: Prospective application of a PSSST electronically integrated with the EHR can accurately diagnose pediatric ...

A major problem of postoperative care is the early identification of patients at risk of developing sepsis and multiple organ failure. By comparing different parameters on the first postoperative day in patients after cardiac surgery (plasma elastase and neopterin, hemodynamic data, scoring systems), we have found the best predictive value for several scoring systems (work in preparation). Among these, the APACHE II score was selected for its best practicability (routine bedside availability within 5 to 10 min using a microcomputer-based program). It is applicable for imminent sepsis risk stratification, discriminating on the first postoperative day between the large population of low-risk patients (score , 19) with mostly uneventful course and the small groups of patients at risk (19 to 23) and high risk ( , 24) who have an at least tenfold higher postsurgical mortality (Fig la). This approach yields several advantages: (1) early and standardized use of supplemental treatment; (2) specific use ...
Mater Researches are investigating the diagnosis process for sepsis in children, a major disease that can lead to severe illness and remains one of the leading causes of mortality in children.. Associate Professor Luregn Schlapbach explained that the key problem of diagnosis is that sepsis initially often presents similarly to common respiratory infections like pneumonia and other initially mild infections.. In view of the past difficulties in diagnosing sepsis reliably, a taskforce of adult critical care physicians and sepsis experts revised the definition of sepsis in adults in 2016, said A/Prof Schlapbach.. The new sepsis definition, so called Sepsis-3 definitions, defines sepsis as dysregulated host response to infection resulting in organ dysfunction.. Essentially, this means that sepsis is when a bodys reaction to infection becomes so overwhelming that it causes one or several organs to shut down, which can lead to death in the worst cases..

Despite advancements in our understanding of innate and adaptive immunity, applying this knowledge to the treatment of sepsis has proven difficult. Sepsis causes a dramatic systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) but is also capable of causing dysfunction in both the innate and adaptive branches of the immune system (Bone, 1996; Döcke et al., 1997; Hotchkiss and Karl, 2003). In patients receiving appropriate resuscitation, the early systemic SIRS phase is rarely lethal, and patients increasingly succumb to secondary infections and organ failure during a prolonged period of immunosuppression and failure in host defense (Bone, 1996; Hotchkiss and Karl, 2003). Understanding both phases of human sepsis requires the application of appropriate animal models that can produce a SIRS response that can be overcome to allow the study of host defense during the more prolonged phases in sepsis. To this end, we use the cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) model of sepsis that creates a significant but ...
Worldwide, neonatal sepsis accounts for an estimated 26% of under-five deaths, with sub-Saharan Africa having the highest mortality rates|b|.|/b| Though worldwide neonatal deaths have decreased by over 3.6 million per year since 2000, neonatal sepsis remains a notable hindrance to the progress in the decline of cause-specific mortality rates especially in sub-Saharan Africa. This study aimed at examining the risk factors of neonatal sepsis at the Trauma and Specialist Hospital, Winneba. The study was an unmatched case control retrospective study. Cases were neonates who had sepsis with their index mothers and controls were neonates who did not have sepsis with their index mothers. Neonatal and maternal medical records were retrieved from January to December 2017. Data abstraction lasted for one month and 2650 folders for the neonates and their index mothers were retrieved. Nine hundred (900) neonatal folders were considered valid for the study and likewise for the maternal folders. One hundred and
The relation between deresuscitative fluid management after the resuscitation phase and clinical outcome in patients with abdominal sepsis is not completely clear. The aim of this study was to assess the contribution of deresuscitative management to death and organ dysfunction in abdominal sepsis. Consecutive patients with abdominal sepsis requiring fluid resuscitation were included in this study. According to the fluid management given in the later stage of resuscitation, a conservative group and a deresuscitative fluid management group were compared. The primary outcome was in-hospital death, whereas secondary outcomes were categorized as organ dysfunction and other adverse events. A total of 138 patients were enrolled in this study. Conservative fluid management was given to 47.8% of patients, whereas deresuscitative fluid management occurred in 52.2%. The deresuscitative strategy was associated with a markedly lower prevalence of new-onset acute kidney injury and a decrease in the duration ...

Honokiol is a low-molecular-weight natural product and has been reported to exhibit anti-inflammatory activity. Our study aimed to investigate the influence of honokiol on sepsis-induced acute kidney injury (AKI) in a mouse model. A cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) surgical operation was performed to establish a sepsis-induced acute kidney injury model in mice. Renal histomorphological analysis was performed with periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) staining. The levels of inflammatory markers in serum were measured by ELISA assay. The mRNA and protein levels were assayed by RT-qPCR and western blotting, respectively. Annexin V-FITC/PI staining was used to evaluate glomerular mesangial cell (GMC) apoptosis. The results revealed that honokiol significantly increased the survival rate in mice undergoing a CLP operation. Inflammatory cytokines, such as TNF-α, IL-6 and IL-1β, were significantly inhibited in honokiol-treated septic mice compared with the CLP group. In addition, honokiol showed the ability to

TY - JOUR. T1 - Pathophysiology of septic acute kidney injury. AU - Mårtensson, Johan. AU - Bellomo, Rinaldo. PY - 2016. Y1 - 2016. N2 - Background: Despite increased understanDing of the pathophysiology of septic acute kidney injury (AKI), treatment options are limited, and mortality remains high. Summary: Septic AKI is triggered by pathogen-associated molecular patterns from bacteria and damage-associated molecular patterns released from or exposed on damaged cells. Downstream effects include glomerular and peritubular endothelial dysfunction, downregulation of tubular reabsorptive work, cell-cycle arrest, regulated cell death and destruction of damaged cell organelles. In the laboratory, pharmacological modulation of some of these pathways prevents AKI or enhances recovery from AKI, yet no data exist to support the utility of such AKI therapy in man. However, avoiDing systemic and renal venous congestion, hypotension and fluid overload attenuates AKI in critically ill septic patients. Key ...
Sepsis is a public health issue. It is more common than a heart attack and claims more lives than prostate cancer, breast cancer and AIDS combined. Yet, according to the 2017 Sepsis Alliance Awareness Survey, only 58 percent of Americans have even heard of sepsis. Sepsis Awareness Month is held each September to increase awareness of this deadly infection, and on Sept. 13, World Sepsis Day, countless events take place all over the world to educate the public about the signs and symptoms of sepsis. This year, for the second year in a row, the Indiana Patient Safety Center (IPSC) of the Indiana Hospital Association (IHA) hosted a Rally Against Sepsis on World Sepsis Day to encourage Hoosiers to get involved in spreading the word about sepsis.. The Rally Against Sepsis took place from 10-11 a.m. at the Indiana War Memorial with speakers who highlighted the three arms of IHAs sepsis awareness campaign: See It. Stop It. Survive It. To kick off the event, Pam Pontones, deputy state health ...
Mannose-binding lectin (MBL) mediates the innate immune response either through direct opsonisation of microorganisms or through activation of the complement system. There are conflicting data whether MBL deficiency leads to increased susceptibility to infections or not. The aim of this study was to determine if low levels of mannose-binding lectin (MBL) predict sepsis development, sepsis severity and outcome from severe sepsis or septic shock. Patients aged 18 years or more with documented sepsis within 24 h after admission to the intensive care unit were included if they had participated in a health survey and donated blood samples prior to the sepsis event. A subset of these patients had stored plasma also from the acute phase. Two matched referents free of known sepsis were selected for each case. Plasma levels MBL were determined in stored samples from health surveys (baseline) and from ICU admission (acute phase). The association between MBL and sepsis, sepsis severity and in-hospital mortality

Patients surviving sepsis develop anemia but the molecular mechanism is unknown. Here we observed that mice surviving polymicrobial Gram-negative sepsis develop hypochromic, microcytic anemia with reticulocytosis. The bone marrow of sepsis survivors accumulates polychromatophilic and orthochromatic erythroblasts. Compensatory extramedullary erythropoiesis in the spleen is defective during terminal differentiation. Circulating TNF and IL-6 are elevated for five days after the onset of sepsis, and serum HMGB1 levels are increased from day seven until at least day 28. Administration of recombinant HMGB1 to healthy mice mediates anemia with extramedullary erythropoiesis and significantly elevated reticulocyte counts. Moreover, administration of anti-HMGB1 monoclonal antibodies after sepsis significantly ameliorates the development of anemia (hematocrit 48.5+/-9.0% versus 37.4+/-6.1%, p
Sepsis is a major risk factor for patient death among those in intensive care not suffering from heart problems. In fact, it is the eleventh cause of death overall in the U.S.. It arises when infection causes a breakdown in the immune system leading to a major inflammatory response. Research published in the International Journal of Data Mining and Bioinformatics suggests that infrared thermography could be used for the early detection of sepsis. Early detection is key to treating this condition and reducing the sepsis mortality rate.. Hasanain Al-Sadr, Mihail Popescu, and James Keller of the University of Missouri Columbia, U.S., explain that abnormal patterns of body temperature can reveal the earliest stages of sepsis. We suggest using thermography as a non-invasive tool capable of continuously measuring body temperature patterns and detecting abnormalities, the team writes. The add that of the odd patterns is temperature difference between body extremities and the patients core ...
The role of systemic hemodynamics in the pathogenesis of septic acute kidney injury (AKI) has received little attention. The purpose of this study was to investigate the association between systemic hemodynamics and new or persistent of AKI in severe sepsis.A retrospective study between 2006 and 2010 was performed in a surgical ICU in a teaching hospital. AKI was defined as development (new AKI) or persistent AKI during the five days following admission based on the Acute Kidney Injury Network (AKIN) criteria. We studied the association between the following hemodynamic targets within 24 hours of admission and AKI: central venous pressure (CVP), cardiac output (CO), mean arterial pressure (MAP), diastolic arterial pressure (DAP), central venous oxygen saturation (ScvO2) or mixed venous oxygen saturation (SvO2).This study included 137 ICU septic patients. Of these, 69 had new or persistent AKI. AKI patients had a higher Simplified Acute Physiology Score (SAPS II) (57 (46 to 67) vs. 45 (33 to 52), P <
Purpose End-organ apoptosis is well-described in progressive sepsis and Multiple Organ Dysfunction Syndrome (MODS), especially where platelets accumulate (e.g. spleen and lung). We previously reported an acute sepsis-induced cytotoxic platelet phenotype expressing serine protease granzyme B. We now aim to define the site(s) of and mechanism(s) by which platelet granzyme B induces end-organ apoptosis in sepsis. Methods End-organ apoptosis in murine sepsis (i.e. polymicrobial peritonitis) was analyzed by immunohistochemistry. Platelet cytotoxicity was measured by flow cytometry following 90 minute ex vivo co-incubation with healthy murine splenocytes. Sepsis progression was measured via validated preclinical murine sepsis score. Measurements and Main Results There was evident apoptosis in spleen, lung, and kidney sections from septic wild type mice. In contrast, there was a lack of TUNEL staining in spleens and lungs from septic granzyme B null mice and these mice survived longer following induction of

1. The metabolism of glutamine and alanine in the lung was studied in rats made septic by a caecal ligation and puncture technique.. 2. The blood glucose concentration was not significantly different in septic rats, but blood pyruvate, lactate, glutamine and alanine concentrations were markedly increased as compared with sham-operated rats. Conversely, blood ketone body and plasma cholesterol concentrations were significantly decreased in septic rats. Both plasma insulin and plasma glucagon concentrations were markedly elevated in response to sepsis. Sepsis resulted in a negative nitrogen balance.. 3. Sepsis increased the rates of production of glutamine (52.5%, P ,0.001), alanine (38.9%, P ,0.001) and glutamate (48.6%, P ,0.001) by lung slices incubated in vitro.. 4. Sepsis increased lung blood flow by 27.6% (P ,0.05). Blood flow and arteriovenous concentration difference measurement across the lung of septic rats showed an increase in the net exchange rates of glutamine (142.5%, P ,0.001), ...
Recent brief from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality shows sepsis responsible for nearly $24 billion in annual costs. Study also shows hospitalizations for sepsis are more costly and on the rise, yet fewer than half of American adults have even heard of it. SAN DIEGO, CALIF (June 30, 2016) - Sepsis Alliance, the nations leading sepsis patient advocacy group, is calling attention to a recent U.S. government study that reveals annual costs for treating sepsis in hospitals have increased over $3.4 billion over a two-year period. The study, which analyzed billings from 2013, revealed that sepsis accounts for nearly $24 billion in annual costs, making it the most expensive condition to treat in the entire U.S. healthcare system.. Sepsis, sometimes referred to as blood poisoning by the general public, is a life-threatening condition that arises when the bodys overwhelming response to infection begins to cause injury and damage to ...
Abstract. We evaluated the association between severity of sepsis and in-hospital mortality in 150 patients with non-surgical sepsis at a regional referral hospital in Uganda. In-hospital mortality occurred in 5 of 52 (9.6%) patients with sepsis, 24 of 71 (33.8%) patients with severe sepsis, and 16 of 27 (59.3%) patients with septic shock. In the multivariate analysis, the identification of severe sepsis (adjusted hazard ratio [AHR] = 2.9, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.0-8.2, P = 0.04), septic shock (AHR = 5.7, 95% CI = 1.6-20.3, P = 0.007), and dysfunction of three or more organs (AHR = 2.9, 95% CI = 1.1-7.3, P = 0.03) increased the risk of in-hospital mortality. Adding aggregate organ dysfunction to the multivariate equation that included the sepsis category statistically significantly improved the model, but the opposite did not. Predictors of mortality were easily measurable and could be used to risk stratify critically ill patients in resource-constrained settings.
Current sepsis therapies are largely supportive and limited to a few clinical interventions, including antibiotics, steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (e.g., hydrocortisone) and early goal-directed therapies (EGDT). For instance, appropriate broad-spectrum antibiotics are often administered to patients to facilitate the elimination of bacterial pathogens [2]; however, the release of bacterial products (e.g., endotoxin or CpG-DNA) may adversely amplify inflammatory responses. Accordingly, anti-inflammatory steroids (e.g., hydrocortisone, methylprednisolone, dexamethasone, and fludrocortisone) are frequently used to modulate the excessive inflammatory response, despite the lack of reproducible efficacy in clinical sepsis trials [117-119]. As a supportive intervention, EGDT employs extremely tight control of numerous physiological parameters (such as central venous pressure, mean arterial blood pressure, central venous oxygen saturation, and hematocrit) with discrete, protocol-driven interventions ...
Background: According to World Health Organization estimates, sepsis accounts for 60%-80% of lost lives per year in childhood. Measures appropriate for resource-scarce and resource- abundant settings alike can reduce sepsis deaths. In this regard, the World Federation of Pediatric Intensive Care and Critical Care Societies Board of Directors announces the Global Pediatric Sepsis Initiative, a quality improvement program designed to improve quality of care for children with sepsis. Objectives: To announce the global sepsis initiative; to justify some of the bundles that are included; and to show some preliminary data and encourage participation. Methods: The Global Pediatric Sepsis Initiative is developed as a Web-based education, demonstration, and pyramid bundles/ checklist tool (,a href=http://www.pediatricsepsis.org,http://www.pediatricsepsis.org,/a, or ,a href=http://www.,http://www.,/a, wfpiccs.org).

PURPOSE: To investigate the association between consecutively measured thromboelastographic (TEG) tracings and outcome in patients with severe sepsis.. METHODS: Multicentre prospective observational study in a subgroup of the Scandinavian Starch for Severe Sepsis/Septic Shock (6S) Trial (NCT00962156) comparing hydroxyethyl starch (HES) 130/0.42 vs. Ringers acetate for fluid resuscitation in severe sepsis. TEG (standard and functional fibrinogen) was measured consecutively for 5 days, and clinical data including bleeding and death was retrieved from the trial database. Statistical analyses included Cox regression with time-dependent covariates and joint modelling techniques.. RESULTS: Of 267 eligible patients, we analysed 260 patients with TEG data. At 90 days, 68 (26 %) had bled and 139 (53 %) had died. For all TEG variables, hypocoagulability according to the reference range was significantly associated with increased risk of death. In a linear model, hazard ratios for death were 6.03 (95 % ...
As regular PulmCCM readers know, the ProCESS, ARISE and ProMISe randomized trials showed no benefit of protocolized early goal-directed therapy as compared to usual conscientious care in the treatment of severe sepsis and septic shock.. In response to ProCESS and ARISE, the influential Surviving Sepsis Campaign now advises that measurement of central venous pressure (CVP) and central venous oxygenation (ScVO2) -- two core components of the so-called EGDT sepsis bundle -- are not necessary for all patients with septic shock.. As long as patients have received timely antibiotics and fluid resuscitation, the Campaign says, requiring measurement of CVP and ScvO2 in all patients ... is not supported by the available evidence.. They further reported that the Surviving Sepsis committee would immediately review the evidence to determine whether and when an update is needed to its practice-defining Surviving Sepsis Guidelines.. After the publication of ProMISe, it looks like that revision is coming ...

AU - Johnson, Amanda. AU - Venable, Amanda. AU - Griswold, John. AU - Pappas, Dimitri. PY - 2019/7/25. Y1 - 2019/7/25. N2 - Sepsis is a life-threatening disease that affects millions of people every year. Rapid detection of sepsis assists clinicians to initiate timely antibiotic therapy and to reduce mortality. At the same time, accurate point-of-care detection is needed to reduce unnecessary use of antibiotics. One of the principal challenges in sepsis diagnosis is that many sepsis cases do not result in positive blood cultures. These so-called culture-negative cases present a significant health threat. In this work, we present a microfluidic cells separation system for the detection of sepsis in both culture-positive and culture-negative cases. Leukocytes were captured in several affinity separation zones of a ...

Multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) is a continuum, with incremental degrees of physiologic derangements in individual organs; it is a process rather than a single event. Alteration in organ function can vary widely from a mild degree of organ dysfunction to completely irreversible organ failure.
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 ...

Y1 - 2005. N2 - INTRODUCTION AND AIMS: Severe sepsis by gram positive pathogens is commonly associated with high morbidity and mortalità in every ICU. During the sepsis the coagulation cascade, the complement system and the activation system are activated, in different moments, and this contributes to the development of multiple organ failure. This activation involves all system specially in late sepsis and contributes to the development of multiple organ failure associated with high mortality rate.Linezolid ia a one of a new class of antimicrobials (oxazolidinones) for the treatment of gram positive infection such as nosocomial pneumonia (including MRSA), community acquired pneumonia, complicate and uncomplicated skin infection and vancomycin resistant Enterococcus Faecium infection.

Sepsis is now defined as infection plus systemic manifestations of infection (Table 34-1). Systemic inflammatory response syndrome is no longer a strict criteria. There are 3 sepsis syndromes (stages): uncomplicated sepsis, severe sepsis, and septic shock. Sepsis becomes severe sepsis when there is tissue hypoperfusion or organ dysfunction (Table 34-2). Septic shock is defined as a systolic blood pressure (SBP) ,90 mmHg or 40 mmHg below ones baseline blood pressure, despite two 20- to 30-mL/kg boluses. ...

Early onset neonatal sepsis is persistently associated with poor outcomes, and incites clinical practice based on the fear of missing a treatable infection in a timely fashion. Unnecessary exposure to antibiotics is also hazardous. Diagnostic dilemmas are discussed in this review, and suggestions offered for practical management while awaiting a more rapidly available gold standard test; in an ideal world, this test would be 100% sensitive and 100% specific for the presence of organisms. ...
DEFINITIONS. Sepsis is a complex syndrome that results from a hosts response to infection. Simply put, it is the systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) arising because of documented or suspected infection. Clinically, SIRS is identified by the presence of at least two of the following: fever or hypothermia, tachycardia, tachypnea, and leukocytosis or leukopenia. Severe sepsis is sepsis with organ dysfunction or tissue hypoperfusion from the infection. Septic shock is severe sepsis plus hypotension that is not corrected by fluid resuscitation. Since 1991, the definitions and diagnostic criteria have expanded with inflammatory, hemodynamic, organ dysfunction, and tissue perfusion variables, but general definitions are the same. Sepsis-related terminology and definitions are in Table 2.1. Diagnostic criteria for sepsis are in Table 2.2. The document by a consensus committee of international experts called Surviving Sepsis Campaign has become one of the most comprehensive guidelines for ...

Physicians caring for patients with sepsis may soon have a new safe and cost-effective treatment for this life-threatening illness. Research led by Dr. Karel Tyml and his colleagues at The University of Western Ontario and Lawson Health Research Institute have found that vitamin C can not only prevent the onset of sepsis, but can reverse the disease.. Sepsis is caused by a bacterial infection that can begin anywhere in your body. Your immune system goes into overdrive, overwhelming normal processes in your blood. The result is that small blood clots form, blocking blood flow to vital organs. This can lead to organ failure. Babies, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems are most likely to get sepsis. But even healthy people can become deathly ill from the disease.. According to Dr. Tyml, a professor at Westerns Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, patients with severe sepsis have a high mortality rate, nearly 40 percent, because there is no effective treatment.. There are many ...
Sepsis is a major risk factor for the development of thrombocytopenia, but few studies have specifically evaluated prognostic importance of thrombocytopenia in patients with sepsis. We investigated the incidence, risk factors, and prognostic importance of thrombocytopenia in adult patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) with sepsis. A retrospective analysis of patients admitted with severe sepsis/septic shock from December 2007 to January 2009 to a 24-bed medical ICU was done. A total of 304 patients were included in the study. The patients mean (±SD) age was 68.8 (±15.8) years. The majority (93.7%) had septic shock, and pneumonia was the most common infection (38.8%). Thrombocytopenia developed in 145 patients (47.6%): 77 (25.3%) at ICU admission and 68 (22.3%) during their hospital course. The median (IQR) duration of thrombocytopenia was 4.4 (1.9-6.9) days. Patients who developed thrombocytopenia had more episodes of major bleeding (14.4% vs. 3.7%, P | 0.01) and received more

N2 - Procalcitonin (PCT) is a circulating polypeptide produced in response to bacterial infections. Studies conducted in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) setting have demonstrated its utility as a biomarker of bacterial infection and sepsis. Thus, PCT is widely used to distinguish between sepsis and SIRS, and to guide antibiotic therapy. At present sepsis represents a frequent diagnosis among patients admitted to Internal Medicine (IM) departments. Basing on the knowledge derived from ICU studies, the use of PCT has become routine in non-intensive wards, contributing to improve the management of sepsis. However, some differences between the two ...
Sepsis is the reflection of systemic immune response that manifests in the sequential inflammatory process in presence of infection. This may occur as a result of gram-negative bacterial sepsis including |i|Escherichia coli|/i| infection that gives rise to excessive production of inflammatory mediators and causes severe tissue injuries. We have reported earlier that the lipid of attenuated |i|Leishmania donovani|/i| suppresses the inflammatory responses in arthritis patients. Using heat killed |i|E. coli|/i| stimulated macrophages, we have now investigated the effect of leishmanial total lipid (LTL) isolated from |i|Leishmania donovani|/i| (MHO/IN/1978/UR6) for amelioration of the inflammatory mediators and transcriptional factor with suppression of TLR4-CD14 expression. To evaluate the |i|in vivo|/i| effect, |i|E. coli|/i| induced murine sepsis model was used focusing on the changes in different parameter(s) of lung injury caused by sepsis, namely, edema, vascular permeability, and pathophysiology, and

Several comorbidities and obstetric factors independently increased the risk of severe sepsis. For example, women with congestive heart failure had a more than fourfold higher risk, and women undergoing cesarean delivery had a more than fivefold higher risk. The etiology of the increase [in severe sepsis] in this population is unknown, she commented. Possible hypotheses for the increase ... could be the increased cesarean delivery rate. At the start of the study period, the cesarean delivery rate was 21.2%; by 2008, the national rate was 32.3%. Theres also a higher-risk patient population. More women today have comorbidities that increase their risk of severe sepsis, she added. And theres an increased microbial resistance that could also be contributing. Dr. Bauer noted that an important related issue is the difficulty of diagnosing sepsis during pregnancy. Some of the physiologic values typically used to establish the presence of the systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS), ...
Innate immunity is the first line of defense in human beings against pathogen infection; monocytes/macrophages are the primary cells of the innate immune system. Recently, macrophages/monocytes have been discovered to participate in LPS clearance, and the clearance efficiency determines the magnitude of the inflammatory response and subsequent organ injury. Previously, we reported that artesunate (AS) protected sepsis mice against heat-killed E. coli challenge. Herein, we further confirmed that AS protected cecal ligation/puncture (CLP) sepsis mice. Its protection on sepsis mice was related to not only reduction of pro-inflammatory cytokines and serum LPS levels but also improvement of liver function. Based on the fact that AS did not directly bind and neutralize LPS, we hypothesized that the reduction of serum LPS level might be related to enhancement of LPS internalization and subsequent detoxification. Our results showed that AS increased FITC-LPS internalization by peritoneal macrophage and liver
Sepsis Linked to Elevated Risk for New-Onset Epilepsy in Young Individuals. Patients with sepsis, particularly younger patients and those with chronic kidney disease, may be at an elevated risk for new-onset epilepsy, according to research presented at the 2019 American Epilepsy Society Annual Meeting, held December 6-10, 2019, in Baltimore, Maryland.. Researchers conducted a population-based, retrospective, matched-cohort study to estimate the risk for new-onset epilepsy among patients hospitalized in the intensive care unit (ICU) for sepsis treatment. Researchers collected data from the patients in the Discharge Abstract Database between 2010 and 2015.. These findings indicate that sepsis may be an unrecognized epilepsy risk factor, the researchers concluded. Possible mechanisms include damage to the blood-brain barrier as a result of renal dysfunction, persisting inflammation after the acute episode, and increased risk of cardiovascular events following sepsis..

The global sepsis and septic shock market is categorized on the basis of treatment types such as antimicrobial therapy (antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal) and adjunctive therapy (mechanical ventilation, vasopressor therapy, fluid therapy, corticosteroids, blood transfusion, dialysis and insulin therapy). It is observed that sepsis and septic shock ...
Lumbar puncture has always been an invaluable tool to diagnose meningitis. In the neonatal period, septicaemia can be indistinguishable from meningitis. The overall incidence of neonatal meningitis is 0.25 1.0 per 1000 live births (Wiswell, Shattuck). Practice varies between hospital units as regards early sepsis evaluation. Although blood culture has been regarded as an essential component of sepsis screen, the role of lumbar puncture is debatable especially in the first 72 h of life. Previously published data showed that neonatal septicaemia can coexist with meningitis in up to 30% of patients (Vissar). On the other hand, lumbar puncture can be associated with major risks including hypoxaemia, clinical deterioration and many other hazards in small and sick babies (Weisman, Speidel). Moreover, in about 30% of patients, the cerebrospinal fluid tap could be traumatic or inadequate (Weisman, Schreiner). Although many of the studies did not compare the incidence of meningitis between groups with ...
Im going to do my best to try to setup the second half by touching on a number of clinical issues relating to sepsis, and then setting up some residual questions that hopefully will be logical for Bill to come in and answer. So what Im going to do a little bit then is talk - start our clinically and talk a little bit about what we think sepsis is, current definitions for sepsis, how we think we are treating sepsis and then some of these challenges. So what is sepsis? Well people have been looking at this for a while. This is not a hipster from Lawrenceville, this is Hippocrates who a long time ago was already thinking that he thought he knew was sepsis was, he thought it was the process by which flesh rots, swamps generates foul airs at night and wounds fester, and is rank disease producing an evil. That began - that wasnt PubMedic but it began the first of many papers that would be published in sepsis over the next 2,000 years going from Galen all the way through to Fracastoro in the 1400s ...
