The incidence of severe falciparum malaria is increasing in the developed countries and mortality remains high despite progress in intensive care management and schizonticide treatment. Many authors emphasize the importance of exchange transfusion (EXT) in the most severe cases. We studied 21 cases (34±12 years, 6 females; SAPS: 8.4±3.7) of severe malaria(More)
Nosocomial maxillary sinusitis during mechanical ventilation may cause life-threatening complications in ICU patients. The aim of this prospective study was to compare the incidence of maxillary sinusitis according to the route of intubation. 111 consecutive adult patients (mean age: 53, mean SAPS: 12) were randomly assigned to receive either orotracheal(More)
Acyclovir has been used in patients with varying degrees of renal impairment; its pharmacokinetics have been well described in patients undergoing haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis [1, 2] but not in patients undergoing continuous arteriovenous haemofiltration/dialysis (CAVHD). We report a case of a patient who received renal support via CAVHD in whom(More)
drawn and serum drug levels were determinated (RIA). After 6 h, upon learning the theophylline level of 94 p.g/ml, a second serum specimen was drawn (75 ~tg/ml) and activated charcoal treatment was begun. Activated charcoal was administered via a nasogastric tube at a rate of 1 /kg /2 h for 20 h, and a rapid fall in serum theophylline levels to 3.15pg/ml(More)
The paper by Dr. Salord et al. [1] on continuous arterio-venous haemodialysis (CAVHD) during emergency hepatic retransplantation shows the feasibility of the intraoperative use of this technique for managing the metabolic disturbances of end stage liver failure while haemodynamic instability is avoided. However, although its utility is shown clearly, we(More)
