Sepsis is one of the most common causes of death in critical patients. Severe generalized inflammation, infections, and severe physiological imbalances significantly decrease the survival rate with more than 50%. Moreover, monitoring, evaluation, and therapy management often become extremely difficult for the clinician in this type of patients. Current(More)
BACKGROUND The diversity of primary and secondary traumatic injuries specific for the critically ill polytrauma patient is complicating the therapeutic management in the absence of a strict assessment of the biological changes. Inflammation, redox imbalance, and immunosuppression can be quantified by various biochemical parameters; however, they do not(More)
The critically ill polytrauma patient is a constant challenge for the trauma team due to the complexity of the complications presented. Intense inflammatory response and infections, as well as multiple organ dysfunctions, significantly increase the rate of morbidity and mortality in these patients. Moreover, due to the physiological and biochemical(More)
INTRODUCTION The biochemical processes of bioproduction of free radicals (FR) are significantly increasing in polytrauma patients. Decreased plasma concentrations of antioxidants, correlated with a disturbance of the redox balance are responsible for the installation of the phenomenon called oxidative stress (OS). OS action is associated with a series of(More)
BACKGROUND The complexity of the cases of critically ill polytrauma patients is given by both the primary, as well as the secondary, post-traumatic injuries. The severe injuries of organ systems, the major biochemical and physiological disequilibrium, and the molecular chaos lead to a high rate of morbidity and mortality in this type of patient. The 'gold(More)
Nowadays, fluid resuscitation of multiple trauma patients is still a challenging therapy. Existing therapies for volume replacement in severe haemorrhagic shock can lead to adverse reactions that may be fatal for the patient. Patients presenting with multiple trauma often develop hemorrhagic shock, which triggers a series of metabolic, physiological and(More)
BACKGROUND Selenium is a chemical element found in the human body that plays a crucial role in its regulation. Depending on the concentration, it may have beneficial or have toxic effects. Selenium is incorporated as selenocysteine amino acid residue in selenoproteins which play an important role in many biological functions: anti-oxidant defense,(More)
