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 task
Dynamic changes in arterial waveform derived variables and fluid responsiveness in mechanically ventilated patients: A systematic review of the literature*
Dynamic changes of arterial waveform-derived variables during mechanical ventilation are highly accurate in predicting volume responsiveness in critically ill patients with an accuracy greater than that of traditional static indices of volume responsiveness.
Bench-to-bedside review: Rhabdomyolysis – an overview for clinicians
The most sensitive laboratory finding of muscle injury is an elevated plasma creatine kinase level, and the management of patients with rhabdomyolysis includes early vigorous hydration.
Aspiration pneumonia and dysphagia in the elderly.
Elderly patients with clinical signs suggestive of dysphagia and/or who have CAP should be referred for a swallow evaluation and consideration for treatment with an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor.
Adrenal insufficiency during septic shock*
It is believed that a random cortisol concentration of <25 &mgr;g/dL in a highly stressed patient is a useful diagnostic threshold for the diagnosis of adrenal insufficiency.
Does central venous pressure predict fluid responsiveness? A systematic review of the literature and the tale of seven mares.
A systematic review of the literature demonstrated a very poor relationship between CVP and blood volume as well as the inability of CVP/DeltaCVP to predict the hemodynamic response to a fluid challenge.
