Surviving Sepsis Campaign: International Guidelines for Management of Sepsis and Septic Shock 2016
TLDR
Although a significant number of aspects of care have relatively weak support, evidence-based recommendations regarding the acute management of sepsis and septic shock are the foundation of improved outcomes for these critically ill patients with high mortality. Expand
Multiple organ dysfunction score: a reliable descriptor of a complex clinical outcome.
TLDR
This multiple organ dysfunction score, constructed using simple physiologic measures of dysfunction in six organ systems, mirrors organ dysfunction as the intensivist sees it and correlates strongly with the ultimate risk of ICU mortality and hospital mortality. Expand
Use of the SOFA score to assess the incidence of organ dysfunction/failure in intensive care units: results of a multicenter, prospective study. Working group on "sepsis-related problems" of the
TLDR
The SOFA score is a simple, but effective method to describe organ dysfunction/failure in critically ill patients and regular, repeated scoring enables patient condition and disease development to be monitored and better understood. Expand
Sepsis in European intensive care units: Results of the SOAP study*
TLDR
This large pan-European study documents the high frequency of sepsis in critically ill patients and shows a close relationship between the proportion of patients with sepsi and the intensive care unit mortality in the various countries. Expand
Surviving Sepsis Campaign: International Guidelines for Management of Sepsis and Septic Shock: 2016
TLDR
Although a significant number of aspects of care have relatively weak support, evidence-based recommendations regarding the acute management of sepsis and septic shock are the foundation of improved outcomes for these critically ill patients with high mortality. Expand
Recommendations for the diagnosis and management of corticosteroid insufficiency in critically ill adult patients: Consensus statements from an international task force by the American College of
Objective:To develop consensus statements for the diagnosis and management of corticosteroid insufficiency in critically ill adult patients. Participants:A multidisciplinary, multispecialty taskExpand
A look into the nature and causes of human errors in the intensive care unit.
TLDR
A significant number of dangerous human errors occur in the ICU, and applying human factor engineering concepts to the study of the weak points of a specific ICU may help to reduce the number of errors. Expand
End-of-life practices in European intensive care units: the Ethicus Study.
TLDR
The limiting of life-sustaining treatment in European ICUs is common and variable and clarity between withdrawing therapies and shortening of the Dying process and between therapies intended to relieve pain and suffering and those intended to shorten the dying process may be lacking. Expand
Acute renal failure in the ICU: risk factors and outcome evaluated by the SOFA score
TLDR
In ICU patients, the most important risk factors for ARF or mortality from ARF are often present on admission, and infection increased the contribution to mortality by other factors. Expand
The ACCP-SCCM consensus conference on sepsis and organ failure.
TLDR
Only recently has the knowledge of the molecular and cellular events that occur in sepsis and its sequelae begun to shed light on the complex cascade of events underlying these disorders. Expand
