The MENDSII Study Maximizing the Efficacy of Sedation and Reducing Neurological Dysfunction and Mortality in Septic Patients With Acute Respiratory Failure

The need for mechanical ventilation (MV) secondary to sepsis is the leading cause of admission to the intensive care unit, often necessitating sedation for patient safety and comfort. Recently, we have learned that these sedative medications contribute to iatrogenic injury, such as prolonging ventilator time and ICU length of stay ...


Study of Sedative Medications in Patients With Severe Infection and Respiratory Failure

Patients admitted to the MICU with acute respiratory care and possible sepsis will be evaluated and managed by the internal medicine MICU team. This team includes faculty members, pulmonary fellows, and internal medicine residents. These physicians will make all the decisions regarding the initial management of the patient. The admitting ...


Mitochondrial DNA as a Biomarker of Sepsis Severity

Despite the advances of modern medicine, sepsis persists as one of the leading causes of death in the United States and poses a significant burden on U.S. health care, accounting for more than $24 billion of total hospital costs in 2013. The high mortality and cost of treating sepsis at ...

Phase N/A

The Efficacy of Xuebijing Injection on Sepsis

The purpose of this placebo-controlled study is to determine if Xuebijing Injection treatment provides significant mortality reduction improvement in patients with sepsis compared with placebo treatment in patients receiving the current standard of care for sepsis. This study will also assess the effectiveness of Xuebijing Injection in reducing 28-day mortality ...


Clinical Microbial Species and Antibiotic Resistance Identification in Patients Presenting to the Emergency Department With Three of Four Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (SIRS) Criteria - is Rapid Identification Possible and Accurate?

Dramatic improvement in the timely and effective treatment of patients afflicted with sepsis can be achieved with the implementation of modern technologies for identification of offending microbial species and their innate genetic antibiotic treatment targets. Our collaborative team is planning to address this need using a Point-of-Care (POC) device equipped ...

Phase N/A

National Study on Listeriosis and Listeria

Context: Listeriosis is a foodborne infection responsible for severe disease. Surveillance of human listeriosis in France is based on both mandatory reporting of cases and voluntary submission of L. monocytogenes strains to the National Reference Center for Listeria (NRC) since 1999. The exhaustiveness of this reporting estimated by capture-recapture is ...

Phase N/A

Release of Nociceptin From Granulocytes in Sepsis

Nociceptin is a protein found in the body, with a number of functions in the central nervous system, blood vessels and the gut. There is evidence that it may have a role in controlling the immune response to infection, and may act as a link between the brain and immune ...

Phase N/A

Alveolar Dead Space as Predictor of Organ Failure in Severe Sepsis

The patient will be followed during their ICU stay up to two weeks while on mechanical ventilation. Patient will be followed daily for the initial 48 hours and then once per week for 2 weeks while mechanically ventilated.

Phase N/A

Personalised Medicine With Pentaglobin Compared With Standard of Care for Treatment of Peritonitis After Infectious Source Control

The purpose of this study is to test the adjuvant IgGAM treatment for: An improvement of the outcome for the patient's peritonitis. This will be investigated by using scores such as the multiple organ failure and SOFA scores as well as survival data. Identification of biomarkers (Ig level, PCT, IL ...


Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock Registry

This registry prospectively enrolls adult patients with severe sepsis or septic shock in 21 tertiary hospital emergency departments. Registered data can be used for quality control and clinical research to reduce sepsis-related mortality.
