    OBJECTIVE: Acute lung injury (ALI) and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) are known to be associated with increased mortality and costs in trauma patients. We estimated the independent impact of these conditions on mortality and cost, beyond the severity of injury with which they are correlated.

    DESIGN: One-year prospective cohort.

    PATIENTS AND SETTING: All trauma patients admitted to the intensive care unit in a level I center were evaluated daily for ALI/ARDS using the ...

    RATIONALE: Introduction of sedation protocols has been associated with improved patient outcomes. It is not known if an update to an existing high-quality sedation protocol, featuring increased patient assessment and reduced benzodiazepine exposure, is associated with improved patient process and outcome quality metrics.

    METHODS: This was an observational before (n = 703) and after (n = 780) cohort study of mechanically ventilated patients in a 24-bed trauma-surgical intensive care unit ...

    BACKGROUND: Residual neuromuscular block has been associated with postoperative pulmonary complications. We hypothesised that sugammadex reduces postoperative pulmonary complications in patients aged ≥70 yr having surgery ≥3 h, compared with neostigmine.

    METHODS: Patients were enrolled in an open-label, assessor-blinded, randomised, controlled trial. At surgical closure, subjects were equally randomised to receive sugammadex 2 mg kg-1 or neostigmine 0.07 mg kg-1 (maximum 5 mg) for ...

    OBJECTIVES: : To investigate if light sedation favorably affects subsequent patient mental health compared with deep sedation. Symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder are common in patients after they have undergone prolonged mechanical ventilation and are associated with sedation depth.

    DESIGN: : Randomized, open-label, controlled trial.

    SETTING: : Single tertiary care center.

    PATIENTS: : Adult patients requiring mechanical ventilation.

    INTERVENTIONS: : Patients were randomized to ...

    OBJECTIVE: To investigate the efficacy and safety of 4 antipseudomonal treatments in children with cystic fibrosis with recently acquired Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection.

    DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial.

    SETTING: Multicenter trial in the United States.

    PARTICIPANTS: Three hundred four children with cystic fibrosis aged 1 to 12 years within 6 months of P aeruginosa detection.

    INTERVENTIONS: Participants were randomized to 1 of 4 antibiotic regimens for 18 months (six 12-week ...

    OBJECT: The authors sought to describe changes in clinical management associated with brain tissue oxygen (PbO(2)) monitoring and how these changes affected outcomes and resource utilization.

    METHODS: The cohort study comprised 629 patients admitted to a Level I trauma center with a diagnosis of severe traumatic brain injury over a period of 3 years. Hospital mortality rate, neurological outcome, and resource utilization of 123 patients who underwent both PbO(2) and intracranial pressure ...

    OBJECT: The goal of this study was to assess the accuracy of the routine clinical use of transcranial Doppler (TCD) ultrasonography and SPECT in predicting angiographically demonstrated vasospasm.

    METHODS: Following receipt of institutional review board approval, the authors reviewed the records of patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage who had been admitted between 2004 and 2005 and underwent TCD ultrasonography and SPECT evaluations within 24 hours of cerebral angiography. Patients were ...

    BACKGROUND: The primary cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) is progressive obstructive pulmonary disease due to chronic endobronchial infection, particularly with Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Pa). Risk factors for and clinical impact of early Pa infection in young CF patients are less well understood.

    PURPOSE: The present studies are designed to evaluate risk factors and outcomes associated with early Pa acquisition, and the benefits and harms of four ...

    INTRODUCTION: Protocols for the delivery of analgesia, sedation and delirium care of the critically ill, mechanically ventilated patient have been shown to improve outcomes but are not uniformly used. The extent to which elements of analgesia, sedation and delirium guidelines are incorporated into order sets at hospitals across a geographic area is not known. We hypothesized that both greater hospital volume and membership in a hospital network are associated with greater adherence of ...

    IMPORTANCE: Low-risk elective surgical procedures are common, but there are no clear guidelines for when preoperative consultations are required. Such consultations may therefore represent a substantial discretionary service.

    OBJECTIVE: To assess temporal trends, explanatory factors, and geographic variation for preoperative consultation in Medicare beneficiaries undergoing cataract surgery, a common low-risk elective procedure.

    DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: Cohort study using a 5% ...

    INTRODUCTION: Intensive insulin therapy (IIT) with tight glycemic control may reduce mortality and morbidity in critically ill patients and has been widely adopted in practice throughout the world. However, there is only one randomized controlled trial showing unequivocal benefit to this approach and that study population was dominated by post-cardiac surgery patients. We aimed to determine the association between IIT and mortality in a mixed population of critically ill ...

    OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of a norepinephrine-induced differential increase in mean arterial pressure on splanchnic and renal perfusion in a porcine model of volume-resuscitated endotoxic shock.

    DESIGN: Prospective, controlled, acute interventional study.

    SETTING: Animal research laboratory.

    SUBJECTS: Fourteen landrace pigs, seven treated with norepinephrine and seven used as endotoxemic controls.

    INTERVENTIONS: In an acute endotoxic shock model, norepinephrine was used to ...

    RATIONALE: The risk of pulmonary exacerbation following Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Pa) acquisition in children with cystic fibrosis (CF) is unknown.

    OBJECTIVES: To determine if failure of antibiotic therapy to eradicate Pa and frequency of Pa recurrence are associated with increased exacerbation risk.

    METHODS: The cohort included 282 children with CF who participated in the EPIC trial ages 1-12 with newly acquired Pa, defined as either a first lifetime Pa positive respiratory culture or ...

    OBJECTIVE: Protocols and order sets for the delivery of analgesia, sedation, and delirium care of the critically ill, mechanically ventilated patient have been shown to improve outcomes but are not uniform in hospitals across geographic areas. The extent to which greater order set quality is associated with improved patient outcomes is not known. We hypothesized that cardiac surgery patients cared for at hospitals with a greater analgesia, sedation, and delirium order set quality score ...

    BACKGROUND: The effect of dexmedetomidine on evoked potentials (EPs) has not been elucidated. We aimed to investigate the effect of dexmedetomidine on somatosensory, motor, and visual EPs.

    METHODS: After IRB approval, 40 adult patients scheduled for elective spine surgery using total IV anesthesia with propofol and remifentanil were randomly assigned to receive either dexmedetomidine (n = 20) or placebo (n = 20) in a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. After obtaining informed ...
