OBJECTIVE To examine the role of hypercytokinemia in the pathophysiology of tumor lysis syndrome (TLS) and the efficacy of continuous hemodiafiltration in the treatment of TLS. DESIGN AND SETTING Retrospective observational study in a general intensive care unit of a university hospital. PATIENTS Four patients with hematological disorder developing TLS(More)
INTRODUCTION Neurological prognostic factors after cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in patients with cardiac arrest (CA) as early and accurately as possible are urgently needed to determine therapeutic strategies after successful CPR. In particular, serum levels of protein neuron-specific enolase (NSE) and S-100B are considered promising candidates for(More)
OBJECTIVE Autophagy is the regulated catabolic process for recycling damaged or unnecessary organelles, which plays crucial roles in cell survival during nutrient deficiency, and innate immune defense against pathogenic microorganisms. Autophagy has been also reported to be involved in various conditions including inflammatory diseases. IRGM (human(More)
Genetic polymorphisms have recently been found to be related to clinical outcome in septic patients. The present study investigated to evaluate the influence of genetic polymorphisms in Japanese septic patients on clinical outcome and whether use of genetic polymorphisms as predictors would enable more accurate prediction of outcome. Effects of 16 genetic(More)
INTRODUCTION Bacteremia is recognized as a critical condition that influences the outcome of sepsis. Although large-scale surveillance studies of bacterial species causing bacteremia have been published, the pathophysiological differences in bacteremias with different causative bacterial species remain unclear. The objective of the present study is to(More)
INTRODUCTION No reliable predictor for the prognosis of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) on arrival at hospital has been identified so far. We speculate that ammonia and lactate may predict patient outcome. METHODS This is a prospective observational study. Non-traumatic OHCA patients who gained sustained return of spontaneous circulation and were(More)
Continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) has been extensively used in Japan as renal support for critically ill patients managed in the ICU. In Japan, active research has also been conducted on non-renal indications for CRRT, i.e. the use of CRRT for purposes other than renal support. Various methods of blood purification have been attempted to remove(More)
Depressed heart rate variability (HRV) in septic patients is known to be associated with poor outcome. However, neither etiology of depression of HRV nor its clinical significance has been clearly determined. Because hypercytokinemia plays an important role in sepsis, we investigated the relationships between depressed HRV and IL-6 blood level. The subjects(More)
Fulminant hepatic failure (FHF) can be described as a potentially fatal condition presenting with hepatic encephalopathy (HE) and coagulopathy associated with acute hepatic dysfunction, regardless of its etiology. Blood purification (BP) is expected to be effective against HE and coagulopathy in FHF. In this paper, we outline the objectives and methods of(More)
The normal heart rate is regulated by a number of interacting physiological control systems that operate on widely different time scales. Thus, instantaneous heart rate is not steady, but rather demonstrates continuous fluctuations. It has been recognized that power spectral analysis of heart rate variability (HRV) is a noninvasive method to assess cardiac(More)
