Abstract Purpose Alterations in bowel habits are common during critical illness, and bowel protocols are gaining acceptance. Our objective was to characterize bowel protocols in a cross-sectional analysis of ICUs. Materials and methods We engaged 44 adult ICUs and performed content analysis of bowel protocols, addressing initiation criteria, medications incorporated, medication escalation, discontinuation criteria, stool assessment methods, and protocol contraindications.

Abstract Purpose Intensive care unit health care professionals must be skilled in providing end-of-life care. Crucial in this kind of care is end-of-life decision-making, which is a complex process involving a variety of stakeholders and requiring adequate justification. The aim of this systematic review is to analyse papers tackling ethical issues in relation to end-of-life decision-making in intensive care units. It explores the ethical positions, arguments and principles. Methods A literature...

Abstract Sodium glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors are the latest class of oral hypoglycaemic agents approved to treat type II diabetes. Their use is increasing and as such more patients will present to critical care whilst on this treatment. However, there have been several case reports of euglycaemic diabetic ketoacidosis associated with the use of these agents. Under such circumstances the blood glucose is often normal or only moderately elevated and hence the diagnosis may be delayed...

Abstract Purpose Various options of temporary mechanical circulatory support (tMCS) exist for the treatment of cardiogenic shock, however, all forms of tMCS carry a risk of complications. The aim of this study was to compare bleeding complications and thromboembolic events under extracorporeal life support + Impella 2.5/CP (ECMELLA) and isolated Impella 5.0 therapy in the same patient cohort. Material We retrospectively analyzed data of patients who underwent ECMELLA implantation and subsequent ...

Abstract Purpose To identify potential determinants of the Total/ionized Ca ratio (T/iCa), a marker of citrate accumulation. Materials and methods Single-center retrospective observational study evaluating citrate dose, citrate target, albumin, phosphate, pH, lactate, and APACHE II score as potential determinants. Linear mixed models (LMM) using citrate dose and citrate target were developed describing associations with T/iCa. Results From a dataset of 471 samples in 103 patients, an LMM in 379 ...

Abstract Introduction Capillary permeability can be increased in patients with sepsis. Indirect estimation of plasma volume status (ePVS) could identify more severely ill patients with fever. Methods 1502 patients evaluated for fever at the Emergency Department (ED) of Merano General Hospital (Italy) between June 1, 2018 and May 30, 2019. The ePVS value registered on ED admission and derived from complete blood count was considered. Associations between the ePVS value and the two outcomes of the...
Abstract Purpose Triple therapy with steroids, vitamin C and thiamine has been recently proposed as a safe and beneficial in patients with sepsis. In 2017, we added the use of intravenous vitamin C and thiamine in septic shock patients receiving low dose hydrocortisone because poorly responsive to vasopressors. Aim of this study is to verify whether triple therapy rather than steroids alone can improve outcome in patients with refractory shock. Materials and methods In this before-after retrospe...
