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 ...


Efficacy of Betalactam Antibiotics in Prolonged Infusion Compared to Intermittent in Pediatric Patients With Sepsis

Sepsis is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in hospitalised patients globally. Betalactams are time-dependent antibiotics, and so, the duration of time for which the free drug plasma concentration remains above the minimum inhibitory concentration (fT > MIC) is the pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic index associated with bacterial killing and clinical improvement. ...

Phase N/A

Study of Progression of Community Acquired Pneumonia in the Hospital

Pneumonia is a common infectious disease of the lung, often requiring treatment in the hospital. Clinical scoring systems are available, identifying patients not requiring hospitalization. However, the course of disease of patients in the hospital remains hard to predict. While most patients will recover quickly, some will, despite appropriate treatment, ...

Phase N/A

Efficacy of Umbilical Cord Cleansing With a Single Application of 4% Chlorhexidine for the Prevention of Newborn Infections in Uganda: a Randomized Controlled Trial

Background: Nearly all the yearly 3.3 million neonatal deaths occur in low and middle income countries. Infections, including those affecting the umbilical cord (omphalitis) are a significant factor in approximately a third of these deaths. In fact, the odds of all-cause mortality are 46% higher among infants with umbilical cord ...


Ultrasound Measurement of Reactive Hyperemia in Critical Care

The investigators hypothesize that doctors and nurses can undergo a brief period of training and then use ultrasound to accurately measure blood flow in a forearm artery after a brief period when this flow is interrupted with a blood pressure cuff, a measurement the investigators call reactive hyperemia. Reactive hyperemia ...

Phase N/A

Measuring Outcomes of Activity in Intensive Care

The MOSAIC observational study will measure activity in critically ill patients for up to 28 days in the hospital using two different, objective measures, a clinical mobility scale and accelerometry. We will evaluate the independent association between activity and outcomes 3 and 12 months after ICU discharge. Specifically, Aim 1 ...

Phase N/A

Benefit of Clarithromycin in Patients With Severe Infections Through Modulation of the Immune System

Sepsis is a condition with actually rising incidence, estimated around 19 cases per 1000 hospitalizations per year in academic hospitals in USA and similar trends in Europe. It is associated with unacceptably high early (in-hospital) mortality of 40- 50%. Current guidelines promote best practice by early recognition and management with ...


A Trial of Validation and Restoration of Immune Dysfunction in Severe Infections and Sepsis

Sepsis is a life-threatening organ dysfunction that results from the dysregulated host response to an infection. Accumulating knowledge suggests that this dysregulated host response has a broad spectrum where some patients lie to the two extremes of this spectrum whereas the majority of patients lie in between. The first extreme ...


Persistent Inflammation Immunosuppression and Catabolism Syndrome (PICS): A New Horizon for Surgical Critical Care and Induced Frailty

This is a prospective study aimed at identifying the frequency, natural history and long term outcomes of CCI and PICS in the survivors of Intra-abdominal sepsis. In addition to the in-hospital clinical data collected from the parent study, pre and post-sepsis measurements of frailty, comorbidity and disability will be obtained ...

Phase N/A

The Effect of Fluid Resuscitation With 0.9% Sodium Chloride Versus Balanced Crystalloid Solution on Renal Function of Sepsis Patients

The high chloride content of 0.9%sodium chloride (0.9%NaCl) leads to adverse pathophysiological effects in both animals and healthy human volunteers. Small randomized trials confirm that the hyperchloremic acidosis induced by 0.9%NaCl also occurs in patients. A strong signal is emerging from recent large propensity-matched and cohort studies for the adverse ...
