Black children have higher odds of death; Hispanic and Black children have longer hospital stays, especially Black neonates
By broadly defining respiratory failure to include an increase in oxygen requirements, a conservative initial IV fluids resuscitation strategy did not correlate with decreased rates of hypoxemic respiratory failure in sepsis.
In older adults coming to the emergency department with COVID-19, delirium was common and often presented without other typical symptoms or signs.
Study authors assessed the association of piperacillin/tazobactam MIC, meropenem MIC, and beta-lactam resistance genes with mortality in the MERINO trial.
The effects of positive end expiratory pressure in COVID-19-related acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) are similar to those reported in classical ARDS.
Treatment with beta-blockers vs amiodarone, calcium channel blockers, or digoxin was associated with improved heart control at 1, but not 6 hours in patients with sepsis and atrial fibrillation.
Irritated skin is a risk factor for pressure injuries in surgical critical care patients.
In patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) receiving venovenous extracorporeal oxygenation (ECMO), the use of prone positioning improved oxygenation and was associated with reduced rates of hospital mortality.
