DW Chou, SL Wu, KM Chung, SC Han
2015 Clinics  
Septic pulmonary embolism caused by a K. pneumoniae liver abscess combined with the metastatic infection of other vital organs confers a poor prognosis.  ...  Two (14%) patients died of septic shock; one patient had metastatic meningitis, and the other had metastatic pericarditis.  ...  Among the nine patients who required ICU care, seven patients recovered without septic metastasis to other vital organs, and two patients died from septic metastasis to other vital organs; one of the patients  ...

Big data to the rescue of systemic inflammatory response syndrome: is electronic data mining the way of the future?

Utsav Nandi, Michael A. Puskarich, Alan E. Jones
2016 Annals of Translational Medicine  
The Third International Consensus Definition for Sepsis and Septic Shock suggests reducing emphasis on SIRS and focusing instead on endorgan dysfunction to identify and prognosticate the outcomes of sepsis  ...  One limitation that the studies of the SIRS criteria have nearly universally suffered from is their reliance on a set of data points from a single point in time.  ...  Footnote Conflicts of Interest: The authors have no conflicts of interest to declare.  ...

Intensive care medicine--a review

J. Wendon, J. Coltart
1989 Postgraduate medical journal  
'Septic shock', so called, is the commonest form of shock seen in hospitalized patients, and is the type of shock most studied in terms of pathogenetic mechanisms.  ...  In its final stages, shock, regardless of its primary pathogenesis, results in a picture of diffuse end-organ damage, coagulopathy, metabolic acidosis and hypotension.  ...  In septic shock many of the above parameters may be abnormal and methods of improving arterial oxygenation may be required, with the aid of physiotherapy, increased oxygen tension, continuous positive  ...

EFFECTIVENESS OF NEWS FOR DETECTION AND MANAGEMENT OF SEPSIS IN ONCOLOGY PATIENTS

Colette Mary Spencer
2016 Zenodo  
Comparison data of patients over six months (March – August) on the same medical oncology units with an ICD of sepsis, but a year earlier (pre-NEWS, 2014), were used to calculate a proxy NEWS value.  ...  The post-NEWS group averaged 10 years younger than the comparison group (p < .01), had fewer patients suffering from hypertension or Type II diabetes mellitus (though more had chronic obstructive iv pulmonary  ...  The 2014 pre-NEWS group were selected by ICD-9 codes for sepsis and assigned a computer programmed "calculated sepsis score" based on the vital sign entry for that septic occurrence.  ...
