Effects of Epinephrine on Cerebral Oxygenation during CPR
Epinephrine has been presumed to improve cerebral oxygen delivery during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), but animal and registry studies suggest that epinephrine-induced capillary vasoconstriction may decrease cerebral capillary blood flow and worsen neurological outcome. The effect of epinephrine on cerebral oxygenation during CPR has not been documented in the clinical setting. Therefore, Deakin et al examined […]

Airway Driving Pressure and Lung Stress in ARDS Patients
Since the first description of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) in the 1960s, numerous studies have sought the optimal tidal volume, positive end-expiratory pressure, plateau pressure, and inspired fraction of oxygen to reduce ventilator-induced lung injury. Chiumello et al set out to evaluate if airway driving pressure could accurately predict lung stress in ARDS patients. […]

Attend an Afternoon Symposium at Congress
Learn about clinical breakthroughs and advances in patient care during the educational symposia at the Society of Critical Care Medicine’s (SCCM) 46th Critical Care Congress. Each stimulating session is presented by leading experts in critical care and offers a thorough analysis of the developments and issues affecting most intensive care unit (ICU) environments. These sessions […]

EIP Prolongation in ARDS Patients
End-inspiratory pause (EIP) prolongation decreases dead space-to-tidal volume ratio and partial pressure of carbon dioxide in arterial blood (PaCO2). We do not know the physiological benefits of this approach to improve respiratory system mechanics in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) patients when mild hypercapnia is of no concern. Aguirre-Bermeo et al, therefore, set out to […]

Examining Pantoprazole or Placebo for Stress Ulcer Prophylaxis
Pantoprazole is frequently administered to critically ill patients for prophylaxis against gastrointestinal bleeding. However, comparison to placebo has been inadequately evaluated, and pantoprazole has the potential to cause harm. Therefore, Selvanderan and colleagues set out to evaluate benefit or harm associated with pantoprazole administration. They found no evidence of benefit or harm with the prophylactic […]

Assessing Impact of Conservative vs. Conventional Oxygen Therapy
Among critically ill patients, is a conservative oxygenation strategy aimed to maintain arterial saturation within physiologic limits more beneficial than a conventional strategy? Girardis et al set out to answer this question. They found that among critically ill intensive care unit patients with a length of stay of 72 hours or longer, a conservative protocol […]
