Abstract Objective: Impaired tubular esophageal motility is involved in the pathogenesis of gastroesophageal reflux disease, which, in turn, has been shown to cause nosocomial pneumonia in critically ill patients. As multiple factors are involved, this pilot study was undertaken to evaluate whether, similarly, impaired esophageal motility may contribute to nosocomial infections by determining esophageal motility in critically ill patients undergoing mechanical ventilation and sedation in… Expand
Mechanisms of gastroesophageal reflux in critically ill mechanically ventilated patients.
TLDR
Gastroesophageal reflux in mechanically ventilated patients is predominantly due to very low or absent lower esphageal sphincter pressure, often with a superimposed cough or strain, and data suggest that measures that increase basal LES pressure may be useful to preventReflux in ventilated Patients.

Characterization of esophageal motor activity, gastroesophageal reflux, and evaluation of prokinetic effectiveness in mechanically ventilated critically ill patients: a high-resolution impedance manometry study
TLDR
All critically ill patients had major esophageal motility abnormalities, and motility patterns varied according to gastric emptying status, and metoclopramide failed to reduce the number of reflux episodes regardless of gastric emptied status. Expand

TLDR
Recognition of the type and site of intestinal motility disorder is important to guide the therapy and improve the outcome. Expand
Gastroesophageal reflux in mechanically ventilated pediatric patients and its relation to ventilator-associated pneumonia
TLDR
GER is a constant incident in mechanically ventilated pediatric patients, with alkaline reflux being more common than acidic reflux, and total reflux time was found to be a reliable predictor of VAP. Expand
Intestinal motility disturbances in intensive care patients pathogenesis and clinical impact
TLDR
The therapeutic options for motility disturbances in critically ill patients include the adjustment of electrolyte imbalances, tailored fluid management, early enteral feeding, appropriate management of catecholamines and drugs used for analgosedation, and prokinetic drugs. Expand
Diminished functional association between proximal and distal gastric motility in critically ill patients
TLDR
In critical illness, in addition to impairment of proximal and distal gastric motor activity, the association between the two gastric regions is abnormal and this disturbance may interfere with meal distribution and further contribute to slow gastric emptying in patients. Expand
The effect of famotidine on gastroesophageal and duodeno-gastro-esophageal refluxes in critically ill patients.
AIM To investigate the effect of famotidine on gastroesophageal reflux (GER) and duodeno-gastro-esophageal reflux (DGER) and to explore it's possible mechanisms. To identify the relevant factors ofExpand
Gastrointestinal dysmotility in critically ill patients
TLDR
This review discusses the pathophysiology, assessment and management of GI dysmotility in critically ill patients, and recommends a multifaceted treatment approach that addresses multiple causes and utilizes multiple pharmacological pathways. Expand
Gastrointestinal dysmotility disorders in critically ill dogs and cats.
TLDR
No consensus exists regarding optimal timing of initiating prophylaxic measures, preference of treatment, or duration of therapy for critically ill dogs and cats, and the prognosis for affected small animal patients remains unknown. Expand
Gastrointestinal dysmotility disorders in critically ill dogs and cats
TLDR
Review of the human and veterinary literature regarding gastrointestinal (GI) dysmotility disorders in respect to pathogenesis, patient risk factors, and treatment options in critically ill dogs and cats finds no consensus exists regarding optimal timing of initiating prophylaxic measures, preference of treatment, or duration of therapy.
