Visual examination of abnormal body temperature patterns were seen to be an early indicator of sepsis in afebrile critically ill patients.
Crucial yet rarely measured plasma fibrinogen levels can be estimated with routine laboratory parameters haemoglobin and base excess, allowing identification of major trauma patients at risk of acquired hypofibrinogenemia
Transportation by helicopter emergency medical services staffed with physicians resulted in a significant survival benefit for trauma patients compared to those treated and transported by ground workers only.
A double-blind randomized controlled trial of vasopressin versus norepinephrine in patients with septic shock finds that neither vasopressor affects the incidence of cardiac ischemia.
