MethodsInvestigate 200 emergency and critical patients in internal medical department and their families randomly from June 2004 to May 2005.Patients' anxiety is evaluated by condition-anxiety questionnaire after conversations with nurses.
The area under ROC curve of APACHE II score,SOFA score,MA,α1-MG, RBP,NAG to predicate the death in ICU were 0.875 ( P < 0.05 ) ,0.825 ( P < 0.05 ), 0.820 (P < 0.05 ) ,0.730,0.530,0.620. Conclusion MA,α1-MG and RBP are valuable predictors of outcome in critically ill patients.
Clinical study on therapy of clearing hallow viscera in treating critical patients with gastro-enteric function disorder
Objective: To explore the clinical effect of therapy of clearing hallow viscera in treating critical patients with gastro-enteric function disorder (GEFD).Methods: Retrospective analysis was carried out on 96 critical patients.
05).Conclusion: Therapy of clearing hallow viscera has a good effect in treating critical patients with gastro-enteric function disorder, and could reduce the incidence and fatality of MODS.
Recently, trials in patients with decompensated heart failure have suggested that short-term intravenous treatment with levosimendan might improve the survival of these critical patients.
To evaluate the relationship between severity and nosocomial infection in critical patients, we have conducted a prospective study at the Intensive Care Unit of the University of Granada Hospital (Spain).
Thus, in psoriasis mean LAA values of 9.5%±8% were recorded in the severe patients and 5.5%±4.2% in the mild cases (p=0.01), while in pemphigus the values were 15%±9.6% and 6.6%±3.7% respectively (p=0.03).
Subepithelial fibrosis is one of the principle features of airway remodelling in asthma and is increased in severe patients.
Nausea was graded as absent, mild, moderate or severe (patients bedridden).
We evaluated HBO in severe patients with perineal Crohn's disease.
KS concentrations in severe patients were higher than those in attenuated patients.
The duties of the Medical Unit administrator are described and schemes are suggested for further training of an anaesthetist or physician particularly interested in critical patient care.
Although IORT is effective for the local control of osteosarcoma in extremities, critical patient selection and improvements of treatment protocol are required in order to obtain a satisfactory outcome.
It is now a general understanding that the real enemy of the critical patient is time; thus, functional organisation and collocation of human and technological resources in the emergency department (ED) can help avoid the loss of human lives.
They possess properties that are not only well-suited to the needs of pharmaceutical applications, but that enable construction of drug delivery systems that address critical patient needs.
In the context of time-critical patient management it is, therefore, a more appropriate means of interaction.
