  • Mortality of HIV patients in the ICU

    HIV infection is related to a higher frequency of severe sepsis and death among patients admitted to the ICU; coinfection with Hepatitis C virus increases risk of death in the presence and absence of sepsis.

  • Glucose monitoring in the critically ill

    Subcutaneous continuous glucose monitoring to guide insulin treatment in critically ill patients is as safe and effective as intermittent point-of-care measurements and reduces nursing workload and daily costs

  • Consultant cover and ICU mortality

    There is no relationship between days of continuous cover by a single intensivist and patient outcomes in adult, general ICUs in England but intensivist participation in handover is associated with increased mortality.

  • Therapeutic hypothermia and immune response

    Induced hypothermia after cardiac arrest does not alter immune response when compared with patients with a body temperature regulated at 36°C, contradicting fears that induced hypothermia may increase the risk of infection.

  • Assessing pain in critically ill patients

    The Behavioural Pain Scale and Critical Care Pain Observation Tool show the best reliability and consistency for assessing pain in ICU patients.

  • Inflammation and acid-base components

    Acid-base abnormalities, such as increased strong ion gap or decreased albumin, are associated with immunological activation; this association cannot be explained by illness severity alone.
