Objective: To determine risk factors and clinical consequences of critical illness polyneuropathy (CIP) evaluated by the impact on duration of mechanical ventilation, length of stay and mortality. Design: Inception cohort study. Setting: Intensive care unit of a tertiary hospital. Patients: Septic patients with multiple organ dysfunction syndrome requiring(More)
To determine incidence, risk factors and impact on various outcome parameters of the development of acute quadriplegic myopathy in a selected population of critically ill patients. A prospective cohort study carried out in the intensive care unit of a tertiary-level university hospital. All patients admitted due to acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive(More)
OBJECTIVE We compared the metabolic and clinical effects of two lipid emulsions, long-chain triacylglycerols (LCT) and a mixture of medium- and long-chain triacylglycerols (MCT/LCT), in septic patients. METHODS Both groups received total parenteral nutrition (TPN) with a solution enriched with branched-chain amino acids (BCAA). Seventy-two septic patients(More)
The immunosuppressive effects of intravenous lipid emulsions are a matter of great concern and debate. In a rat model of gram-negative bacteremia, we assessed whether the use of three intravenous lipid emulsions with different triacylglycerol compositions could influence mortality, bacterial clearance, and prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)) levels and compared(More)
