  • Impact and Beneficial Critical Points of Clinical Outcome in Corticosteroid Management of Adult Patients With Sepsis: Meta-Analysis and GRADE Assessment. [Systematic Review]
    Front Pharmacol 2019; 10:1101Lin LL, Gu HY, … Zuo HX
  • CONCLUSIONS: This meta-analysis found that the long course low-dose and not short course high-dose corticosteroid treatment could marginally improve short-term 28-day mortality with high quality, especially septic shock and vasopressor-dependent septic shock, and it is recommended that long course (about 7 days) low-dose (about 200-300mg per day) hydrocortisone (or equivalent) with cumulative dose (at least about 1,000mg) may be a viable management option for overall patients with sepsis, and it can be also adapted to patient with septic shock alone. Early hydrocortisone plus fludrocortisone administration, via continuous infusion or bolus dosing, is also particularly important for the prognosis. Abrupt discontinuation of corticosteroids, as opposed to the conventional tapered discontinuation, may be considered as a desirable option in 28-day mortality. The safety profile of long course low-dose corticosteroid treatment, including adverse hyperglycaemia and hypernatraemia events, remains a concern, although these events could be easily treated. Clinical Trial Registration: PROSPERO, identifier CRD 42018092849.
  • Clinical and Genetic Contributors to New-Onset Atrial Fibrillation in Critically Ill Adults. [Journal Article]
    Crit Care Med 2019Kerchberger VE, Huang Y, … Shaver CM
  • CONCLUSIONS: We identified several single-nucleotide polymorphisms associated with new-onset atrial fibrillation in a large cohort of critically ill ICU patients, suggesting there is genetic susceptibility underlying this common clinical condition. This finding may provide new targets for future mechanistic studies and additional insight into the application of genomic information to identify patients at elevated risk for a common and important condition in the ICU.
  • Impact of intravenous phenylephrine bolus administration on the nociceptive level index (NOL). [Journal Article]
    J Clin Monit Comput 2019Raft J, Coulombe MA, … Richebe P
  • Recently, the nociceptive level index (NOL) was shown to more specifically and sensitively detect noxious stimuli during anesthesia, in comparison to previous methods that relied on such parameters as heart rate (HR) and mean blood pressure (MAP). An ongoing study (NCT#03410485) evaluates the intraoperative combination of both NOL and bispectral (BIS) indices to improve quality of recovery after …
