Abstract

Polyneuropathy developing in critically ill patients ("critical illness polyneuropathy"--CIP) is diagnosed with increasing frequency in intensive care units. CIP is an axonal polyneuropathy leading to difficulties in weaning from artificial ventilation and symmetrical flaccid tetraparesis. Pathogenetically CIP is considered to be part of the multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) in the course of sepsis or systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS). The incidence of CIP in septic patients with MODS ranges from 50% to 70%. Electroneurography (ENG) and electromyography (EMG) are essential diagnostic procedures. The mortality in patients with CIP is higher than in patients without CIP. Depending on the severity of CIP, recovery of neurological function in survivors is usually relatively good.
