Measurement-based approaches with extreme value worst-case estimations are beginning to be proficiently considered for timing analyses. In this paper, we intend to make more formal extreme value theory applicability to safe worst-case execution time estimations. We outline complexities and challenges behind extreme value theory assumptions and parameter(More)
INTRODUCTION Persistent peritonitis is a frequent complication of secondary peritonitis requiring additional reoperations and antibiotic therapy. This situation raises specific concerns due to microbiological changes in peritoneal samples, especially the emergence of multidrug-resistant (MDR) strains. Although this complication has been extensively studied,(More)

BACKGROUND Glucocorticoid-induced leucine zipper (GILZ) is a potent anti-inflammatory protein involved in neutrophil apoptosis and the resolution of inflammation. Given the numerous pathophysiologic roles of neutrophils in the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), we postulated that neutrophil GILZ expression might be induced during ARDS, to modulate(More)
BACKGROUND We assessed the clinical features and outcome of morbidly obese patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) for management of postoperative peritonitis (POP) following bariatric surgery (BS). METHODS In a prospective, observational, surgical ICU cohort, we compared the clinical features, empiric antibiotic therapy, and prognosis of BS(More)
