PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The aim of this review is to provide an update on the pathophysiology and treatment of severe traumatic brain injury (TBI)-related complications on extracranial organs. RECENT FINDINGS: Extracranial complications are common and influence the outcome from TBI. Significant improvements in outcome in a sizeable proportion of patients could potentially be accomplished by improving the ability to prevent or reverse nonneurological complications such as pneumonia, cardiac and kidney...

The primary goal of the intensive care management of patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) is to prevent and treat secondary brain injury by maintaining adequate oxygen delivery and cerebral perfusion pressure. However, non-neurological organ dysfunctions are common after TBI and are an independent factor—but potentially amenable to treatment—related to morbidity and mortality. There is a wide range of systemic complications following TBI. Among these, respiratory, cardiovascular, renal, an...

The prevalence of morbid obesity is increasing worldwide, and this is posing several management challenges across medical and surgical care units. The adverse impact related to overweight status on multiple organs, particularly on pulmonary and cardiovascular function, may predispose to increasing perioperative and intensive care complications. However, while obesity is associated with higher all-cause mortality, many studies described an obesity paradox: higher body mass index (BMI) is associat...

Most patients with ischaemic stroke are managed on the ward or in specialty stroke units, but a significant number requires higher-acuity care and, consequently, admission to the intensive care unit. Mechanical ventilation is frequently performed in these patients due to swallowing dysfunction and airway or respiratory system compromise. Experimental studies have focused on stroke-induced immunosuppression and brain-lung crosstalk, leading to increased pulmonary damage and inflammation, as well ...

ABSTRACTIntroduction: As the prevalence of obesity increases, so does the number of obese patients undergoing surgical procedures and being admitted into intensive care units. Obesity per se is ass...

Over the past decade, the use of veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VV-ECMO) for respiratory support has widely expanded as a treatment strategy for patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Despite considerable attention has been given to the indications, the timing and the management of patients undergoing ECMO for refractory respiratory hypoxemic failure, little is known regarding the management of mechanical ventilation (MV) in this group of patients. ECMO enabl...
