BACKGROUND Animal data on cardiac arrest showed improved long-term survival with combined vasopressin-epinephrine. In cardiac arrest, cortisol levels are relatively low during and after cardiopulmonary resuscitation. We hypothesized that combined vasopressin-epinephrine and corticosteroid supplementation during and after resuscitation may improve survival(More)
There is increasing evidence that the release of S100B protein, which is an acknowledged marker of brain injury, is also induced by other causes including hemorrhagic shock. The aim of this study was to investigate the serum concentration of S100B in critically ill mechanically ventilated patients with various degrees of organ dysfunction but without(More)
S100B protein, an acknowledged biomarker of brain injury, has been reported to be increased in hemorrhagic shock. Also, acute hemorrhage is associated with inflammatory response. The aim of this study was to investigate the concentrations of serum S100B and the potential relationships with interleukin 6 (IL-6), severity of tissue hypoperfusion, and(More)
