Homeopathy in emergency medicine
TLDR
The development of algorithms and other tools to aid rapid homeopathic prescription in critical care patients and the importance of familiarizing physicians and medical students with homeopathy are suggested in order to facilitate communication and cooperation between these complementary branches of medicine.
New horizon in the treatment of sepsis: a systematic review of alternative medicine
TLDR
Modulation of immune system, anti-inflammatory activities and improvement of survival were the action of herbal medicine in treatment of sepsis, and a monovalent approach is not enough for treatment.

TLDR
Modulation of immune system, anti-inflammatory activities and improvement of survival were the action of herbal medicine in treatment of sepsis.
Evaluation of homoeopathic medicines as add-on to institutional management protocol in Acute Encephalitis Syndrome: An exploratory observational comparative study
TLDR
This exploratory observational study suggests reduction of mortality and morbidity with add-on homoeopathic medicine in children with AES as compared to IMP alone.

TLDR
The coincidence of the effect noted in the experience in the field and the evidence accumulating in rigorous laboratory studies on Gelsemium sempervirens is particularly provocative and stimulating for future controlled studies.

TLDR
Despite many promising leads, the evidence does not favor recommendation of most of these treatments from a public health policy perspective and a great deal of systematic research effort lies ahead before most of the options discussed would meet mainstream medical standards for introduction into routine treatment regimens.
Clinical research protocol to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of individualized homeopathic medicine in the treatment and prevention of the COVID-19 epidemic.
TLDR
The current protocol is developed with the objective of investigating, in a randomized, double-blind and placebo-controlled clinical trial, the effectiveness and safety of possible individualized homeopathic drugs of epidemic genius of COVID-19, in adjuvant and complementary treatment of patients affected by the disease.

A controlled clinical trial of high-dose methylprednisolone in the treatment of severe sepsis and septic shock.
TLDR
It is concluded that the use of high-dose corticosteroids provides no benefit in the treatment of severe sepsis and septic shock.
Early Goal-Directed Therapy in the Treatment of Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock
TLDR
This study randomly assigned patients who arrived at an urban emergency department with severe sepsis or septic shock to receive either six hours of early goal-directed therapy or standard therapy (as a control) before admission to the intensive care unit.
Stress doses of hydrocortisone reverse hyperdynamic septic shock: a prospective, randomized, double-blind, single-center study.
TLDR
Infusion of stress doses of hydrocortisone reduced the time to cessation of vasopressor therapy in human septic shock and was associated with a trend to earlier resolution of sepsis-induced organ dysfunctions.
Reversal of late septic shock with supraphysiologic doses of hydrocortisone.
TLDR
Administration of modest doses of hydrocortisone in the setting of pressor-dependent septic shock for a mean of >96 hrs resulted in a significant improvement in hemodynamics and a beneficial effect on survival.
Treatment of acute childhood diarrhea with homeopathic medicine: a randomized clinical trial in Nicaragua.
TLDR
A statistically significant decrease in the duration of diarrhea in the treatment group suggests that homeopathic treatment might be useful in acute childhood diarrhea.
Cardiovascular management of septic shock.
TLDR
This review will cover septic shock as a manifestation of severe sepsis, the collision of the body’s defenses with the invading organism, and based on current understanding of the pathophysiology, this seems to be particularly appropriate terminology.
Daily interruption of sedative infusions in critically ill patients undergoing mechanical ventilation
TLDR
A randomized, controlled trial involving 128 adult patients who were receiving mechanical ventilation and continuous infusions of sedative drugs in a medical intensive care unit found that the intervention group increased the median duration of mechanical ventilation, as compared with 7.3 days in the control group.
Incidence, risk factors, and outcome of severe sepsis and septic shock in adults. A multicenter prospective study in intensive care units. French ICU Group for Severe Sepsis.
TLDR
Patients with clinically suspected sepsis but without microbiological documentation and patients with documented infection share common risk factors and are at similarly high risk of death.
Effect on the duration of mechanical ventilation of identifying patients capable of breathing spontaneously.
TLDR
Daily screening of the respiratory function of adults receiving mechanical ventilation, followed by trials of spontaneous breathing in appropriate patients and notification of their physicians when the trials were successful, can reduce the duration of mechanical ventilation and the cost of intensive care and is associated with fewer complications than usual care.
Extubation outcome after spontaneous breathing trials with T-tube or pressure support ventilation. The Spanish Lung Failure Collaborative Group.
TLDR
Spontaneous breathing trials with pressure support or T-tube are suitable methods for successful discontinuation of ventilator support in patients without problems to resume spontaneous breathing.
